WHAT IS IT?
A brilliant crochet pattern for a gorgeous shawl made using our Victor Linen yarn.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
These cute little neck shawls are a perfect project for a beginner hooker or just fab to brighten up any outfit and keep your neck warm.
The shawl is edged with pom poms or bobbles so adds a good weight and keeps it in place. Ideal if you can't wear wool or animal fibres next to your skin and makes an excellent spring or summer time cover for your shoulders. Linen gives great stitch definition so you can see exactly what you are up to and count stitches and chains easily as you progress. The open stitch means the yarn goes a long way and a 200g cone of the fine or medium weights will be ample to make your shawl. (There's a chance you may need more than one cone of the thicker colours, or if you think you might run out you could make the pom poms in a contrast shade or omit them).
WHY SHOULD I BUY IT?
Designed exclusively for our Victor linen by Grandma Jo at the spannerworks you know it will look fabulous! And as you'll be downloading you'll get the pattern immediately. Jo's patterns are illustrated throughout with both wordy instructions, a crochet chart of symbols and photos as she goes along, so it's really clear to follow her patterns.
