Hi Everyone! I've been absent from the board for a little, but am back with a brand new project! This shawl is made of worsted weight yarn ( 4 strands held together) and a Q hook. It's only 14 rows, so you can make this very quickly. For your ease in crocheting this, the pattern also has a step-by-step slide show of how to make it.  I used the extended double stitch. There is also a link in the pattern that shows how to do this stitch. It's very similar to a double crochet.  If you like, you can make this shawl with a P hook and 3 strands of yarn, but you will have to work more rows. This is a great scrap busting project.

Here is the free link:

It is visually interesting with that "spinal column." Working with multiple strands is always fun. This looks easy but satisfying.

Thank you for the nice comments. I literally made mine in a day. It was fun to get the colors of yarn that I wanted to use. I started with the lighter colors first to get the dip-dyed look. It really is stunning when worn. It's a head turner!

Hope everyone enjoys this!
Take care,
Maria
