Pattern Notes
The border will use approximately 10% of the weight of the yarn used for the main body of the shawl. If you plan to crochet your version of Drucilla all in one colour, make sure you stop working the increase section leaving enough yarn for the border.

If you make a corner-to-corner (C2C) version of Drucilla, you will use approximately half of your main body yarn on the increase section, then half on the decrease section. It’s best to use slightly less than half on the increase section, to ensure you don’t run out of yarn.
