A simple elegant triangle shawl designed to reflect the chakra system with colour coded tapestry and surface crochet elements

The inspiration behind the Chakra shawl came from wanting something to wrap around me to keep me warm at the end of my yoga practice during the transition from energetic movement to rest.

Skills Needed
This is a relatively simple pattern, mostly using single crochet (UK double crochet) and chains throughout. It is suitable for beginners looking to try a new technique or two.
You will need to know basic crochet stitches and terminology, and the pattern requires colour changes within a row (tapestry crochet), surface crochet (slip stitching across the fabric, although this can be left out) and gentle blocking.

The pattern includes a chart for the colourwork and a schematic to aid with visualising the construction.

The finished shawl measures around 160cm wide by 80cm deep at the widest points, based on the yarn and hook suggested.

The shawl used 300g / 900m of Scheepjes Bamboo Soft for the main colour and around 15m / 5g in each of 7 contrasting colours (a great stash buster!).
It was worked with a 4.5mm hook
