4~Seasons Shawl

4~Seasons Shawl

One of 4 lucious patterns designed to invoke the feel of the seasons.

Welcome Spring




This version is Splendid in its mix of texture, and open spaces, providing warmth with delicate intrigue.  
If shawls are special to you, the comfort and beauty of this one is sure to touch your soul.
Constructed in Lion Brand Mandala yarn with attention to the light nature. The self striping cake provides color
changes that are quickly taken in to give strength and interest to the overall design, without being so busy that
the textural base would be lost.
The yarn will provide warmth, and add the desired layer of appeal. Whether a shoulder cover for crisp evenings,
or wrapped around the neck for the Kerchief/Cowl look. The versatility of this design is undeniable.

Notes

This pattern is written using US terms.
Ch 3 at the beginning of a row counts as first dc of that row

Ch 4 at beginning of row is dc, and ch 1



Counts given at the end of each row is for the first run of those rows,
each additional row will add the noted increase in stitches.
Ch 1 at beginning of row 4 does not count as a stitch.

While tr (treble crochet stitch) is generally a taller stitch, in this pattern,

the height is pulled down upon itself, to create the nubby texture.
This process will result in a row about the same height as a row of sc.

  • You will find additional notes at the end of pattern rows that directly relate to that row.
  • Please read the entire row before working it, to be sure you have all the important information.
