My granddaughter loved the shawl so much as you can see in the pictures and asked me to make her one in her favorite color. So I also made a smaller one, in pink!
About the yarn
You can use any yarn you like with matching hook size! I had lots of Merino soft by Scheepjes left overs which I used up in this shawl, with hook 5mm. I used 650 grams in total, so 13 balls should be enough, but I used 38 colors to get the serape effect. You can get Merino soft here at Woolwarehouse. Using a good hook like a Clover hook will make a huge difference, Clover Amour is my favorite hook anyway but especially with yarn that is a bit splitty, I couldn’t do without my Clover hook.

Chain an odd multiple of 12. For the big one I chained 348, which is 29 x12 chains. For the smaller one I chained 180, which is 15 x 12 chains. Make sure you chain an odd multiple of 12! Otherwise the point of the shawl will end up differently.
From now on repeat row 3 – 6 and end with a row 3,then:
For each fringe cut 10 threads of 30 cm and knot it around the 2 chains at the beginning and end of each row.
