Pattern Description:

The Free Spirited Shell Shawl is an easy, advanced beginner crocheted shawl that is worked sideways. There are also directions for working the border two slightly different ways. It was designed to showcase self-striping yarn, but solids or variagates work nicely as well.

You can use any yarn, in any weight, and work the shawl to any size. Use a larger than normal hook (1-2 sizes larger than the size recommended on your yarn label).

Sample was made using Knit Picks Chroma yarn in fingering weight, 1 skein (396 yards), and after blocking shawl measured 23" deep by 42" across after blocking.

My testers used yarns from fingering weight to aran weight.
