This is my first time using this yarn and I can say I wasn’t disappointed. At first glance and feel, you might think it s cotton, but it is Acrylic. It is easy to work with, with no splitting. Also when undoing it, it is comes out very easily.

The pattern is made in one piece from top down. The pattern itself is easy to make, consisting of double crochet, slip stitches, chains, and V-stitches. Confusion or errors are reduced with the use of a stitch marker. The shawl is created using a 6 row repeat (rows 7-12). So, row 13 will be a repeat of row 7, with different amounts of repeated sections and a different stitch count. In order to list this effectively, you will see instructions such as **ch 4, sk 2, sc in next st repeat 4, 10, 16, 22, 28 34, 40, 46, 52) times. The numbers in the () are the number of repeats for the section based on the number of row repeat you are on.

The stitch counts are also listed at the end of each row of instructions with the same color coding as above. Ch 3 will always count as a double crochet. It is recommended to place a stitch marker in the middle stitch of each row, to assist with keeping your place

Repeat rows 7-12 for the patter while keeping the increase on both sides and the middle, incorporating the incremental stitches in the pattern until it measures 62″ wide by 24″ long or desired length. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Start by making the band first with single crochet stitches in the back loop only. Make 96 rows.

Tassels (Make 3)

Wind yarn around a cardboard about the length you want (I used 4″ board) of fingers 20 times. Cut in half.

Tie the middle of the tassel with yarn long enough (about 30″ long) so that there are some hanging (will be used to tie the project)

Tie another yarn (about 1″ down)around the top of the tassel

Use a tapestry needle to weave in the ends so that they will blend with the rest of the yarn in the tassel.

Trim the ends of the tassel so that they are even.

Attach the tassels to both ends and the middle by tying them with the hanging yarn from tying the tassel together. (Hanging tassel is about 4″ long)
