Pattern Description:

Walden is a triangular shawl crocheted from the neck down. It can be worked to any size, but both versions shown take only one skein of sock yarn. Version I is crocheted with a sport weight yarn in a textured half double crochet pattern. Version II is worked with a fingering weight yarn in a double crochet pattern at a looser gauge for a lacier look. Two edging variations are provided and both shawls are reversible. Quick and easy to work, they make the perfect choice for gifts, especially when paired with a soft luxurious yarn.
