- 1 skein Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable ("Echo" colorway shown)
- Tapestry Needle (for weaving in ends)
Sizing (as shown):
- 40 inches across top edge

Note: this shawlette can be customized, the measurements provided are to give you an idea of the shawlette shown. If you want yours to be longer, just keep going! Some people like a smaller shawl without all the bulk, while others like a longer shawl with lots of drape...just work it until you get the size you like! See diagram below to get an idea of sizing too:
Row 1: ch 94. In 4th chain from hook (dc, ch 1, dc) all in the same chain. *Skip two chains, and in the next chain, work (dc, ch 1, dc) all in the same chain. Repeat from * to end.
Row 2: Turn, ch 3 and work (dc, ch 1, dc) in each of the chain 1 spaces from the previous row (center of each "V"). At the end of the row, finish with a (dc, ch 1, dc) in the last space (ch 3 turning space).
Repeat row 2 until shawlette measures 9 inches in height, or until desired size.
Finishing and Assembly:
Fasten off and weave in all ends. If you like, you can add a tassel with the same yarn at either end along the top (wider) edge. See diagram above. If you've never made a tassel, please visit this photo/video tutorial to learn how:
