Stitchers' Rhapsody Shawl
There are so many beautiful hand-dyed yarns on the market: variegated, semi solids and speckles. But it can be difficult to find crochet patterns that allow the yarn to be the star. This shawl uses one of each and combines them with stitches that really allow the yarn to shine.
Match up your favourite dyed yarns and explore their beauty with this large, wonderfully draping shawl.
Pattern repeats can be omitted or added to make a smaller or larger shawl
