Hinterlands, the remote or less developed parts of a country; back country: The hinterlands are usually much more picturesque than the urban areas. An easy shawlette whose beauty lies in the simplicity of the design. Hinterland was inspired by the rural beauty of the mountains where I live. Pattern includes directions to make the Hinterland Shawlette. The pattern uses Standard American Crochet terms. This shawl can be worked in many different weights of yarn. The pattern is worked from the neck edge down in single repeat pattern. You can change the size of the shawl by simply changing the starting chain to produce a smaller or larger shawl of your choice. I recommend a hook three to four sizes bigger than your chosen yarn requires to achieve a lace like effect. Skill Level: Easy (Suitable for a beginner who has an understanding of basic crochet terms/stitches and has completed several projects) Materials: At least 4 to 6oz of Fingering or DK weight yarn 6.50 mm / K Hook Gauge, not important.
