Chenille Shawl

Click Here for Image


Comments: A little shawl very easy to crochet (basically a fishnet) and very easy to modify according to your wishes. You can expand the pattern for making a full-size shaw, or you can make it smaller to make a bandana, you can use fringe made of same chenille to let it more sober, you can use leather strips with pearls for fringe ( very vintage, very vogue),or you can avoid fringe at all. Chenille is a wonderful material for shawls, soft and expandible. A tip; use an hook 1 1/2 size larger than required for your yarn and work loosy!
