Contour Shawl

Are you heading for a long weekend or maybe even half term?  Well, we have the holiday make for you today. 

Sometimes simple is best to allow the yarn to really shine. This easy to work and quick to grow shawl works perfectly with those tricky to crochet variegated skeins, with the bold lines drawing the colour splashes along. Contour is a generous asymmetric shawl with a bold graphic look and beautiful drape.

Shaped like a tick, it wraps well and sits neatly. Plus its like wearing a secret affirmation of your correctness all day!

We've had this shawl tested and the feed back has been great.  Check out #contourshawl to see some of the fabulous makes.
