Fair and Square MCAL


Fair and Square is a crescent shape shawl, worked from side to side. The border is worked back and forth along the edges once the main body is complete. You can use 1 color for the whole shawl, or 2 colors for the body and the border. The crescent shape makes this shawl very versatile and easy to wear. This shawl is designed with plenty of beads all over the shawl (but if beads are not for you, then you can omit them all together). As with all my other patterns, this pattern comes with charts and row-by-row written direction in US crochet term. You can work entirely from the written direction or from the charts alone.
