Phoenix Wings Shawl

Difficulty level: *** Intermediate

Free Shawl Crochet Pattern

I named this the Phoenix Wings shawl, because the vertical stripes resemble feathers, while the color-changing yarn I used puts me in mind of a warm fire, or a sunset.

Short Overview of the pattern:

The shawl is crocheted sideways, from the pointy end. The shawl is worked in a combination of black and self-striping yarn. The stripes in black yarn are worked in dc and the stripes in self-striping yarn are worked in double dtr groups. The shawl is shaped by working ch 6 at one side every 8th row. When the width of the shawl and the length of the half of the shawl is as you wish it, the shawl is being shaped by working one double dtr group less every 8th row. The shawl is finished with 2 rows of dc along the straight edge of the shawl.
