Summer Forest Art Yarn Shawl

English Leicester Longwool locks dyed and spun into a bulky weight yarn. The locks have been spiral thread plyed with a fine 2 ply laceweight angora yarn.

I used a large oversize Tunisian Crochet hook and crocheted this in an open lacy pattern to create movement and drape.

I used a combination of a size Q/15.75 mm and a size R/17mm hooks. I have a lovely pair hand turned by Jenkins. I wanted to show off the yarn, the texture, and the curls.

I did crochet and deconstruct this shawl numerous times before I liked the arrangement of colors. But I am pretty pleased with it now that it is in the complete. It is warm, cozy, and so very textured.
