The Misty River shawl is reminiscent of the misty and fogs that roll over rivers on cold mornings. Can you just imagine wrapping yourself up in warmth with this comfortable and simple shawl? It’s perfect for keeping your shoulders warm when drinking your coffee and reading your favorite book. Keep the shawl in place with a beautiful shawl pin that will draw attention and get you compliments.

  • Ch3 equals a dc.
  • Ch5 is a dc plus ch1.
  • Always place your last two dc’s in the 3rd st of turning chain (last st of previous row).
  • Place a st marker (’PM’ in pattern) in the ch-1 space for easy identification when needing to stitch into the ch-1 sp.
