This pattern is for a Tunisian Crochet Shawl.

Backroads are full of mystery. Around every corner is something new, interesting, or beautiful. I love how each is different, but each can delight you with its specialness. My Backgrounds mystery shawl pattern has been inspired by these magical, mysterious lanes. Come along with this design and see what it brings with each turn.

This shawl is designed with Tunisian crochet stitches. It is top down with shaping so it stays on your shoulders. It is designed with 3 solid or tonal yarns and one multi colored yarn. It can be crocheted with 4 solid or tonal yarns.

The shawl begins at the neck with Color A.

Colors A and D need to contrast each other.
If using a multi colored yarn it will be Color B.

The pattern is written line by line.

At this time all clues have been released. The full pattern is available as one file, or you can download as clue files.
