Loft 4PLY Crochet Shawl by Fay Dashper-Hughes
Loft is a slightly asymmetric shawl that is crocheted from the narrowest point, getting wider as you go. It’s an easy pattern that uses two simple stitches and a series of colour changes to create definition and interest.
The pattern structure is simple but effective and easy to memorise. It is worked sideways, starting at the smallest point, so your rows get longer as you work through the pattern.
