Marling into darkness shawl !
A topdown shawl, worked from the centre out.
The body of the shawl is worked double stranded, creating a lovely marled effect. If you use 1 solid shade and 1 gradient shade together, you get an extra delicate gradient look.
The border is worked single stranded and with smaller hook size.
Fully written pattern, in US and UK crochet terms.
Charts and schematic included.
The shawl measures : 180cm/67.5in wide and 40cm/16in deep
Yarn : Kokon Alpaca Lace, 100 % baby alpaca, 100g = 800 m/875yd.
I used 1 skein shade Stone (you need 600m of yarn, this is about 3/4 of the skein), and 1 skein shade Ink (I used the entire skein)
Crochet hook : 4 mm and 3,25 mm
Skill level : all levels
TIP : I designed ‘Kokon Lace Shawl) with the same marvellous Kokon Lace Yarn. With 3 skeins you are able to make BOTH my shawl designs. (2 x shade Stone and 1 x shade Ink)
