This is called the Sundae Shawl because it is shaped like one of those ice cream wafers that you get in a sundae dessert, and looks great in pastel, ice cream colours, although as you can see from the versions I have produced it also works well in grads and other yarns of a more intense hue. This is a one skein pattern, and I recommend using a bamboo / merino mix because it the slightly thicker, fluffier yarn gives more substance to these open lacy patterns. I used a 5.5mm hook for this pattern, but I tend towards having tighter tension, and so if you are a looser hooker you may want to opt for a 5.0mm or even a 4.5mm. It just depends on your personal preference re how open the final shawl will come out.

It is a good, quick make without too much in the way of fussiness but with enough variation to make it interesting. I hope you like it! If you like my patterns, do have a look at my blog,!
