Pattern Description:

For the Shawl Kit you can buy it at my website or my etsy store

A saltire is a heraldic symbol in the form of a diagonal cross ☓ or letter x. I name this shaw Saltire because you can find a lot of x-stitches all over the shawl.
Saltire is a half circle-ish shaped shawl with interesting construction. You can make this shawl with 1 color or 2 colors. Both give you stunning result.
Instruction come in 2 sizes, small and large, but you can adjust the size. As with all my other patterns, this pattern comes with both written instructions and charts.

Suggested yarn and yardage needed: Any sock yarn (920 - 1,600 yards)
You need at least 2 skeins of yarn to do a small size shawl (if you are not a tight crocheter like me most likely that you need 3 skeins) and 4 skeins to make the large one.
For 2 colors shawl the ratio is 50:50.
I used Rendezvous Forever Sock 2 skeins (200g, 920 yards) for small size.

Hook: 4.50 mm (G) and 5.00 (H) (adjust hook size accordingly if you use thinner/thicker yarn)

Notions: Removable stitch markers for crochet

Level: Advanced

Finished Size:
Small: 90cm/35" wide by 45cm/17.7" deep
Large: 120cm/47.25" wide by 52cm/20.5" deep
