Making the "ivory shawl"





If you want to make the "ivory shawl" I have the following tips:

*acquire the pattern from Mani di Fata (unfortunately, its not available for free anymore...)
*have thread specified in pattern or * have 4 balls (50gms each) of size 8 or 10 mercerized cotton thread (I used Cannon ...)
*use a 2.5mm hook as specified in pattern or *3.00mm hook as I did, for a finished size of about 110 x 182 cm
*this seems to work up fast, but not when you're in the middle...
*think of the end result - this is a pretty shawl!
*have a little patience, and some more...
*when you're done crocheting the shawl, try to have fun making the fringes - its worth it!
*finally, praise yourself and enjoy the beautiful shawl or find someone who will!
