Sassy little shawl to dress up any outfit or just keep your shoulders warm. This elegant shawl is worked as a continuous piece using vertical Tunisian, Delta Crochet and just good old ordinary crochet stitches. There are so many ways you can wear this shawl …. That’s half the fun of owning one!

I want to say big Thank You’s to the testers that helped me test this pattern. Their shawls are featured on this pattern page.

A very special thank you to CoudreDuDoeur who did the WONDERFUL charts for this pattern.

Size Differences:
The difference between large and small is that the large has a longer collar and is fuller in the body of the wrap. This makes the large shawl ‘wider’ around the body. The small has a deeper depth but can be shortened, if desired. This makes the small shawl ‘longer’ towards your waist.

The large is only recommended for lace weight or thread.
