Thorns Shawl

Published previously as Terra Cotta Shawl in Love of Crochet, Crochet More 2014

Fan and shell stitches transform this luxurious silk and linen yarn into a fabulous shawl. The repetitive pattern is easily memorized, making for a relaxing project that works up quicker than you think!

This long and narrow triangular shawl is created from bottom to top, with just a shift of the shawl, the solid edging is crocheted on, leaving only 2 yarn tails to weave in.
