Zipper Shawl to Crochet
My Zipper Shawl is a triangle shawl that is fast to hook with sport weight yarn and a size H (5 mm) crochet hook. I used 2 balls of Premier Serenity Garden (370 yds) to make this shawl plus 60 yards of cotton for the border. (430 yards of sport weight yarn)
Constructed sideways from tip to center in two pieces and seamed with an almost invisible zipper seam down the middle. Then add a border around the shawl.
Finished size: 62" wide x 19" long and 70" wide x 23" long (after blocking)
You can make this with any weight of yarn by changing the hook size to suit the yarn. Easy to make larger or smaller. Start shawl with both ends of your yarn and work until both pieces are the same size. Seam them together and add the border in the same yarn or a coordinating or contrasting color.
The 4 page pattern includes written instructions and two crochet charts for $3.00. Pattern prices subject to change without notice. Check my Ravelry Store for current pattern prices.
