Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked from one tip to another.

Gauge in this project is not crucial. All you should do to begin it is to choose yarn approximately the same weight and a suitable needle size. Switch on your imagination and get heavier yarn to result in a shawl for fall\winter season.

The fringe is made afterwards.
