Shawlette is worked in hor­i­zon­tal strips, pick­ing up stitches from pre­vi­ous di­a­monds (see Place­ment Di­a­gram). Yarn is cut only at con­clu­sion of hor­i­zon­tal strip at the end of Di­a­monds 2, 7, 13, 22, 32, 45, 59 and 74. Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated.

This pretty Tu­nisian en­trelac shawl is cro­cheted one square at a time, but with a dif­fer­ence! Each new square is picked up and cro­cheted in rows, cre­at­ing a truly unique look when worked in a pretty var­ie­gated yarn.
