CHANGE OF COLOUR TIP: When changing colour crochet the end of the new colour in on the first 5 sts to avoid having to fasten thread ends afterwards.

PATTERN: See diagram M.1.
COLOUR CHANGE: Work stripes as follows:
1 row colour no 49, purple
1 row colour no 51, olive
1 row colour no 16, moss green
1 row colour no 42, brown
1 row colour no 19, grey

See CHANGE OF COLOUR TIP! Work 6 ch with purple and crochet hook size 9 mm and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Continue in M.1 and stripes – See COLOUR CHANGE. Continue the inc in M.1 in this way. NOTE: On every 3rd row crochet 4 tr-groups in the middle ch – not 2. After the 12th row crochet 2 tr-groups in the middle ch on every round until finished measurements. Cut and fasten thread after 20 rows.

Crochet a border round the whole shawl with purple as follows: 1 dc, * 3 ch, skip 2.5 cm, 1 dc, 4 ch, 1 tr in first ch, 1 dc in the same ch, skip 1 cm, 1 dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc on round. Cut and fasten thread.

= tr round ch

= this round is explained in pattern, beg on row 1.
