This is a top down, summer weight shawl. I wanted something that was very scarf like, but more of a triangle shape, so I designed this to be the best of both worlds: a long, shallow shawl. This top-down shawl can be made in any size, any gauge, and with any yarn.

  1. Very nice! I love shallow scarf type shawls—I call them shawlettes.
    I find I don’t wear my large shawls as much as the shawlettes, they are so practical.
    Thanks for a very nice pattern, I can’t wait to make it.
    You are very kind to share your design with everyone.

  2. This is a very pretty shawl! Please tell me what a “magic loop” is. I’ve never seen that in crochet instructions before.

  3. MERAVIGLIOSO. Cercavo qualcosa per questa estate di leggero ma anche di semplice e di carino da mettere al mare. Grazie Patrizia
