Yarn - the general rule is the chunkier the better, I used an Aran weight for mine with a ball of similar wool for the contrasting colour.
Hook - using the correct hook size recommended by the yarn.
Weave in the ends or alternatively leave these and tidy to same length to create a fringe effect.
This is my first attempt at writing a crochet pattern, so if there are any errors
then please let me know, it would be much appreciated.
I hope you enjoy making this shawl as much as I did and I would love to see any links to ones you have created yourself!.
