Working from home and rarely leaving the farm means that I have been known to make some pretty dubious fashion choices. A long skirt over my pyjama bottoms is a frequent choice, as is my favourite denim shirt thrown on over whatever clean pair of jeans I can find. Sometimes, those are black, but more often than not, I meet the postie in that great fashion faux pax, double denim.
Finished depth: 59cm/23in
Finished length: 214cm/84in
The size is easily adjustable by working fewer or more of the stripes.
18 sts and 17 rows in pattern to 10 cm/4 in using 5mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension)
Basic crochet stitches, working in rows, increasing, short rows (fully explained in pattern).
Started at the bottom tip, the shawl is increased at each edge while working short row wedges of colour.
