Shawl Ring requires a very small amount of yarn. Remaining yarn from Garden Steps Shawlette on page 20 can be used to make this project. Shawl Ring is crocheted around a thin bangle bracelet. Using the larger hook for the first round (which covers the bracelet) allows for some ease when inserting the smaller hook in the stitches in the 2nd round. Weave in loose ends as work progresses. Join with slip stitch as indicated unless otherwise stated. Chain-2 at beginning of round counts as first half double crochet unless otherwise stated. Chain-4 at beginning of round counts as first double crochet and chain-2 unless otherwise stated.
