This triangle shawl uses the very simplest of filet work to create pretty eyelets in this cosy winter warmer. Some interesting techniques are used along the way (fptr, camel st), making it the perfect project to improve your crochet skill set.   

Included here is the written pattern and two charts. Waking Winter is suitable for confident beginners.
