Cyclone Shawl to Crochet

I named this shawl Cyclone for two reasons: 1) the design looks like a cyclone swirl, and 2) it perfectly describes how fast it is to make!

This shawl is crocheted from the top down using simple dc and ch stitches in an easy two row repeat. A one row sawtooth border finishes the edge.

The pictured shawl was made with 3 balls of Noro Aya, an Aran weight yarn, using a size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook. A worsted weight yarn would work equally well. You'll need about 600 yards of yarn.

Finished this shawl measures 47" along the neckline and 17" deep at center back. This is an unblocked measurement. The shawl would be even larger if you choose to block it.

Make it in Aran or worsted weight yarn, or choose a lighter weight yarn and use a smaller hook (usually a size larger than the yarn label recommends). You'll need more yardage for the same size shawl.

The three page pattern is both written and charted. You can find the pattern in my Ravelry pattern store.

Have fun!
