Acer Shawl

Inspired by the beautiful tumbling waves of leaves on a mature Acer tree this pretty patterned shawl is deceptively simple to make. Worked in ever increasing rows so there is no long foundation chain, the size is easily adaptable – just work more or fewer rows.
Designed to be suitable as a first attempt at shawls for crocheters who are nervous about following patterns.
