The Mira Shawl
This is a lovely lightweight shawl using a variation of the chevron stitch, which is easy to remember so it’s great for crocheting whilst watching television or listening to an audiobook. The size of the shawl is approximately 147cm in length and 36cm width after blocking. For this shawl I have used 100% cotton which is lightweight and perfect for the summer.
I chose the name Mira for this shawl as it means ocean or sea in Sanskrit which reminded me of the gentle waves of the shawl.
