This is a pattern for a crochet shawl made with worsted weight (category 4, medium, aran) acrylic yarn and size H/8 (5 MM) hook. The finished measurements are about 77 inches wide and 28 inches long (not including fringe). The gauge in this pattern is not important, so you can work with the hook that is most comfortable for you. Also lighter yarns would work too. The skill level is advanced beginner. Only basic stitches are used here, but there are a lot of rows to repeat for the pattern and you need to read each row very carefully. The pattern is written in English, using the US crochet terminology. This pattern is cannot be redistributed in any form. However, you have the permission to sell finished items made from this pattern.
