Crochet Mini Shawl – Wrap

23 Mar

The design used to make this shawl was copied form a photograph of a sweater. The shawl is light but warm, and not too fussy. It is suitable for evening wear or informal day wear. The shawl is designed to be worn by someone who is required to be in a sitting position for prolonged periods of time. The advantage is that because the shawl is shorter, your hands and arms are not required to control the fabric. When worn as shown above, the shawl does not slip from the shoulders. However, it can of course be worn by anyone, in many styles, and can be secured with a shawl/scarf pin if desired.

There are many variations on this design. But the particular interest of this version is the fact that the double crochet stitches in the central diamond shaped motif are worked in-between the double crochet stitches of the previous row. Instead of, as is usual, being worked into the top of the stitches of the previous row.

The shawl measures 26 inches wide and 38 inches in length. It is worked in 4 ply machine yarn, approx 325 grms. Colour, light silver grey, using 3.00 crochet hook.
