I crocheted this back in 2010 but I never posted it here. I still wear this shawl in the spring/fall and I've taken good care of it so it's still in decent shape. It took a few months from start to finish. The hardest part was the brown edging. I had to do each row individually until I was past the regular pattern in green. SO MANY ENDS TO WEAVE! In the end though I think it was worth all the extra effort since I'm happy with the result.

Thanks! I'm so happy you all love it. Here's a bit more information on the yarn I used.

The green was a self-striping ball of Schoppel-Wolle Lace-weight. The brown was something I got from a local yarn shop that had no tag. Unfortunately the brown is very itchy but the green yarn is soft and cuddly. The hook I used was a 3.5 mm (E).
