Altair Shawl Pattern by Joanne Scrace
A light as a feather, easy to wear shawl...whether you wear it in the day to keep the sun off your shoulders or in the evening to battle the chills.
100g or approx 750m laceweight yarn
2.5 mm crochet hook - or use a hook size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.
5 pattern reps & 13 rows to 10cm/4in over lace pattern
basic crochet stitches, working into chain spaces, working in rows.
Altair starts at one point and is worked in a pattern that increases on the neck edge towards the shortest edge. RS and WS are notional as pattern is fully reversible. As the pattern starts at a point it makes sense to start the pattern as your swatch. Stop, wash and block the piece to check tension and drape then if satisfied you can continue to work.
