There are so many beautiful hand-dyed yarns on the market: variegated, semi solids and speckles. But it can be difficult to find crochet patterns that allow the yarn to be the star. This shawl uses one of each and combines them with stitches that really allow the yarn to shine.
Match up your favourite dyed yarns and explore their beauty with this large, wonderfully draping shawl.

Wingspan 165cm/65in
Depth 56cm/22in

Pattern repeats can be omitted or added to make a smaller or larger shawl

3 100g skeins Vicki Brown Designs Standard Sock (4ply weight, 75% superwash merino, 25% nylon, 425m/465yds/100g) in
Col A (semi solid) Violacea
Col B (variegates) Vintage Christmas
Col C (speckles) Heather

4mm (US G) hook
A removable stitch marker

Any hand dyed or mill patterned 4ply yarns would work well in this pattern. The striping pattern means it would lend itself well to using mini skeins or small amounts of left over yarn (with larger amounts reserved for later rows)

16st and 12 rows in htr in BLO to measure 10cm/4in using 4mm hook, or size required to obtain tension.
