Note: This magazine has ceased publication, but look for Issue #5 of Crochet 1-2-3 in local libraries and from Ravelry sellers with back issues.

The magazine version is made in a worsted, but this piece can be made in ANY weight yarn. Just make a starting chain in multiples of 15 + 4 for desired short side width and increase overall row repeats for desired length.

Olive green shawl is done in a cotton sportweight, see designers’s page here for specific mods for sportweight yarn. Light blue shawl is done in Madelinetosh Toshsport, please see designer’s page here.

The edges of the long sides can be blocked straight or wavy (see blocking pics of green shawl) according to preference, as the shawl easily lends itself to either style.
