Inspired by the “grapes” created that reminded me of our honeymoon in the Wine country of California many years ago.

This oversized triangular shawl with many color changes starts with a Garter stitch tab cast on and increases throughout. The adorable little and big “grapes” are done in the shape of bobbles.

The size is a generous 85” in length and 25” in height.
Written pattern, includes 3 video links how to do the Garter tab cast on, the bobble stitch and the crochet bind off,

Yarn used here, 2 Layers yarn cakes with 200 yards each in 10 various textures, fibers and colors. Knit kits with free pattern is available at www.yarnz2go.com
