A rock n’ roll crochet wrap designed to show off who you are. An advanced beginner asymmetric triangular shawl pattern worked with a contrast band of across the centre to mimic the LGBTQ+ flag of your choosing.

PS- This pattern is twinned with the EM Spectrum Shawl which includes surface crochet. You do not need to purchase the other pattern as they are one and the same.

Notions:
I strongly suggest using stitch markers to help you with stitch placement, particularly to identify the increase/decrease side of the shawl and surface crochet.

This shawl is asymmetric.
Blocking your shawl, as explained within the pattern, will ‘sharpen’ some of the increase and decrease points.
How curved the end result looks depends on how tightly you complete your ch2’s on the increase/decrease side (as explained within the notes section). The more tightly you crochet these ch2’s the harder it will be to block the shawl straight, and a curve will form.

Due to the nature of this stitch, it is stretchy and so end measurements may be different depending on how enthusiastic a blocker you are. All fibres have a certain level of elasticity within them, hence sizing is given as an approximation. In the Finished Size section above, I have given the finished sizes of my prototype shawl both blocked and unblocked but be aware that testers sizes ranged from 65” - 67” inches across after blocking.
