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!
Size is easily adjusted by working more or fewer rows. Altering the size alters the yarn required.
