Eleonora Tully’s sump­tu­ous and sum­mery ower shawl is a riot of colour and fun to hook.

Simply Crochet - - CONTENTS -

You’re never too old to be a flower girl with this fab­u­lous mo­tif shawl. Hooked up in Schop­pel’s multi-coloured yarn, Zauber­ball Crazy, the mo­tifs link into each other in an un­usual way, and it’ll be fun to hook. It’s light enough to fold down in your hand­bag or pop into a back­pack for fes­ti­val week­ends, too.


The Shawl is made up of 77 in­di­vid­ual Mo­tifs which are joined as you go. Start­ing with the first Mo­tif at the point of the Shawl, each sub­se­quent Mo­tif is joined to the Mo­tifs around it on Round 4b by work­ing the chains through the cor­re­spond­ing ch-9 spa­ces of the pre­vi­ous Mo­tifs. When join­ing the side of a Mo­tif to the Shawl it will be joined at 2 ad­ja­cent ch-9 sps for each Mo­tif. For ex­am­ple, when join­ing to 4 Mo­tifs on the Shawl you will make 8 joins.

Use the di­a­gram on page 94 when join­ing the Mo­tifs.
