I am about to start my Mental Vacation, so I let my thoughts drift away, I dream about beautiful places, I relax and crochet. My first stop is hot gorgeous Egypt and the sunny Nile.

The Nile is a shawl worked in the Tunisian crochet entrelac technique. It is worked side to side in rows of little squares with the front side always facing up.

Each element of the shawl is small enough to place all of your stitches on a regular crochet hook.
