Elegant Simplicity Shawl

Lion Brand® Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton

GAUGE:

12 dc + 6 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Elegant Simplicity Shawl Reviewed by Emma Johnson on 2011-12-21 *****
I made three of these shawls for my daughters and daughter-in-law for christmas gifts last christmas(2010). The colors were cranberry, charcoal gray, and black/gray/white yarn combination. Once I learned the pattern they made up very fast. I also adjusted the rows of the finished shawl according to the height of the girls. The average number of crocheted rows for the finished shawl was 24, rather than 16-17. The girls LOVED them and garment wraps well. They wear them to work and other occasions. They look very elegant with jeans or dress-up. I am making one in the off white for my only aunt. The pattern pops more with a yarn that has a suttle sheen to it. Will make again and again. Love this pattern!
