It is an original design of a asymmetrical shawl. These designs are inspired by the creative work of Sonia Delaunay.
Sonia Delaunay played a fundamental role in the development of Simultanism, a trend which she expressed both in painting and in the design of fashion, textiles and books, among others.
During the 1930s Sonia was in contact with groups of artists who advocated abstraction in art, such as Abstraction-Création and Cercle et Carré, and was one of the founding members of Réalités Nouvelles in 1939. After her husband died in 1941, she carried on working and collaborating in the promotion of abstract art. In 1964, after making a gift of her and her husband’s works, she became the first living woman to be honoured with an exhibition at the Musée du Louvre.

Difficulty: Overall, I would rate this pattern as suitable for an intermediate crocheter, because of its complexity, although it would not be too difficult for a beginner.(Chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, ,slip stitch).
Her design is ideal as well for the more advanced beginner looking to up their game.

The different lace patterns within the piece make it interesting, and the simplicity of the shaping allows for personal adjustments, dependent on yarn and size required.
