While We Waited Shawl
This pattern's inspiration is the very strange year we are having, which initially doesn't seem too pretty! But I promise you, the ideas come together to make a beautiful scarf or wrap. The design plays with ideas about how the virus is separating us from one another but strangely bringing people together and how everyone is having a very different experience of it, but there are many shared experiences too. Its a soothing pattern with plenty of repetition with a different pattern to learn each week.
Some of you will find yourselves with more time on your hands at the moment and some of you will be juggling more than ever. Because of this we decided, for the first time in a mystery crochet along ,to offer the pattern in two sizes. The wrap size uses three 100g skeins and takes around about four* hours per week, the scarf uses three 50g skeins and takes around two* hours a week.
Length and width are adjustable, instructions are given in the pattern.
3 x 50g (100g) skeins of Vicki Brown Designs Standard Sock (4ply, 75% wool, 25% nylon, 425m/100g) in three different colours.

Clue One motif measures 3in square.

Basic crochet stitches, tall stitches, working in rows, working in rounds, missing stitches, decreasing, working into chain spaces, raised (post) stitches.
Its a surprise for now
