From the talented Joanne Scrace from The Crochet Project, this simple shawl pattern is one of my favourites. It is easy
to work and quick to grow and works perfectly with variegated skeins, with the bold lines drawing the colour splashes along. Contour is a generous asymmetric shawl with a bold graphic look and beautiful drape.
Finished depth: 49cm/19in
Finished wingspan: 147cm/58in
Size is easily adjusted by working more or fewer rows. Altering the size alters the yarn required.
Approx 850m of 4-ply (more for a larger shawl, less for a smaller one)
4.5mm (US 7) hook
A removable stitch marker
If you would like to stripe the shawl with two different skeins, change colour on right side rows.
17 sts and 12 rows in pattern to 10 cm/4 in using 4.5mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension)
Basic crochet stitches, working in rows, increasing, raised (post) stitches.
Started at centre top, each row is increased at each end and in the centre to form a triangle.
This pattern uses standard UK crochet terminology (with US translations provided in the abbreviations)
Professionally printed onto high quality paper.
