I designed this shawl for a friend, crazyacres, who does not care for knitting, but is an excellent spinner and crocheter. She loves Sontags and wanted to make one from her homespun yarn, so here it is. I made this one for a small person. For the next size up, work 6 more rows.

This one is made in fingering weight yarn with a G hook, but it is written so that any weight of yarn can be used. It is a one row pattern repeat. If you do make it in another weight of yarn, keep in mind that you always need to have a multiple of 6 + 3 rows (as in, 9-15-21-27-33-39, etc), otherwise the Edging Rnd will not work out. I am off to make one in worsted weight wool with a size K hook.
