The pattern's simple but clever. It's crocheted so that the width of the shawl increases incrementally with each row, meaning that you can try it on as you go and stop when the shawl reaches the desired length. I think I'm going to finish it off with a simple picot edging. I've crocheted it in a wool/silk blend called Cleckheaton Country Silk. It's a DK yarn but I decided to use a 7.00 mm hook hoping that this would help the shawl drape nicely. It does ~ hooray!
