PAT­TERN NOTES

Shawl is worked in join-as- you- go Strips. The cen­ter Strip is made first, and ad­di­tional Strips are added on ei­ther side un­til the full width is reached. Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Each Strip de­creases by 1 shell to cre­ate ta­pered tri­an­gle shape.

Seem­ingly hand-painted yarn in a pal­ette of soft,

earthy hues is rem­i­nis­cent of fall­ing au­tumn leaves in this

en­chant­ing shawl.

Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated. Chain-7 counts as first triple tre­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated.
