Irish Crochet Shawl

Lion Brand« Vanna's Glamour®

GAUGE:

One Motif = About 11 x 11 in. (28 x 28 cm) 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.

Irish Crochet Shawl Reviewed by Rachel Martorano on 2014-05-23 *****
I chose to use Platinum for my first one. After about 2 motifs of taking my time and going slow, the pattern was memorized and went quickly. There are quite a few ends, but I would weave them in after each motif was added so it wasn't so daunting at the very end. Wonderful pattern, beautiful shawl! I'm already making my second and have plans for many more!
