Walk With Me Shawl is a crescent shaped Tunisian crochet shawl with a beautiful basketweave stitch pattern. It is constructed top down and uses approximately 250 g of fingering weight yarn that is light enough for spring and summer but still gives a bit of warmth. This allows it to be a great layering option for chillier evenings and long walks outside.

Skills required
Chain, Tunisian crochet technique (alternating forward and return passes), increasing under front horizontal bar (inc A), increasing under back vertical bar (inc B), Tunisian knit stitch (tks), Tunisian purl stitch (tps), Tunisian knit stitch bind-off (tksBO), Tunisian purl stitch bind-off (tpsBO), blocking.

Tosh Merino Light (100% Superwash Merino wool | fingering | 100 g (3.5 oz) = 384 m (420 yds)), Mars Rover 3 skeins

Tunisian crochet hook size 5 mm (US size H-8) with cable (at least 100 cm (40 in)) or size to obtain the gauge.

The Shawl is worked flat, RS facing from right to left. The shawl is worked from top down with 2 increases on each side every row and 2 increases around centre 5 sts every 4 rows.
The stitch count refers to the number of lps on hook on FP.
Bind off row should be worked loosely to allow for the extra stretching during blocking.
Move st markers around centre 5 sts up every few rows to ensure the correct position of the 2 inner increase sts.
