This easy crocheted shawl was inspired by the popular Multnomah Shawl by Kate Flagg. My brother, Liam, (lemurlemur on Ravelry) was looking for a shawl to make his friend and liked this one, but he is not much of a knitter. Inspired, I decided to design a shawl with some of the same features, but in crochet. It is named after a different county in Oregon, Klamath County.
Instead of giving a gauge and a few pattern sizes, I have listed the sizes as A through H, because this is such a versatile pattern that it can be made in many different weights and gauges of yarn depending on the desired look.
Start making the shawl and work the double crochet section until it looks large enough, stopping at the closest size, then work the Feather and Fan section. The same size can yield different size shawls depending on what yarn and gauge it is made of.
The pattern includes written instructions, charts, a schematic, AND photo tutorial!
Edit (5/21/11): The stitch counts in the new pdf are now correct. Hope that clears things up for everyone.
