Never Black - Crochet Shawl
The idea for this shawl came from yarn used which is all shades of dark except black and reminded me of a line in the Owl that was Afraid of the Dark.
The shawl starts from a central motif and is worked from this centre out in each direction. The idea is of a central star exploding outwards like a supernova to give a beautiful symmetrical lace scarf.
1 100g hank of Old Maiden Aunt Superwash Merino (4ply, 100% Superwash merino, 400m) in to the black.
Central Motif measures 10cm/4in in diameter using 4mm hook or size needed to obtain tension.
Basic stitches, working in rounds, bobbles, working in chain spaces, large stitch pattern.
Worked from centre out.
Pattern is written, using standard UK terminology, and charted.
