Free Crochet Pattern: Wild Flower Shawl

Wild Flower Shawl Lion Brand® LB Collection® Silk Mohair

GAUGE:

1 square = 5" x 5" (12.5 x 12.5 cm); 5 ch-5 loops and 9 rows = 4" (10 cm) in mesh pattern

BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

BLOCKS
Make 13 Wild Flower Squares ending with Row 7, working following Color Sequence Chart.
