Contours Shawl Pattern by Joanne Scrace
This easy to work and quick to grow shawl works perfectly with those tricky to crochet 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.
Shaped like a tick, it wraps well and sits neatly.
Size is easily adjusted by working more or fewer rows. Altering the size alters the yarn required.
780m of 4 ply yarn
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 is charted and written using standard UK crochet terminology (with US conversions given in the abbreviations)
