"This wrap continues my current obsession with linen stitch. I love it the fact that you cancreate all sorts of colourful patterns without stranding yarn. It also doesn’t look too crochetedwhich is generally a good thing.
"This, like so many things I make started out as something else, I was going to make a large triangular wrap but as I went on it became obvious that there was going to be just too much of it so I changed tack. There is a point at one end and not at the other, a sort of trapezium, but I think the asymmetry works well, making it a versatile wear, particularly when you add some tassels. Feel free to make it bigger or smaller.
"The shawl starts at the longest end and then decreases on every row (at the end of all even rows and the beginning of all odd rows)."
