This shawl takes the form of a large wrap whose edges overlap the main body of the garment, such that the shawl can be worn as-is without the struggle of wrapping a flat garment. The flouncy ruffles happen naturally in the pattern!
It’s an easy-to-wear shawl too, and looks great wrapped around the waist too!
Given all of this, it need not be blocked and the simple stitch pattern shows through even without stretching.

About the Designer: Varsha
Varsha is an aspiring fashion designer and crochet entrepreneur from India. She learned to crochet at the age of 5 from her mother and has loved it ever since.
She has always been interested in designing her own patterns and loves to sport what she makes. Her favorite techniques are Tunisian crochet, modular crochet and color work.
A fan of the classics, Varsha loves to use simple stitches in short repeats to create symmetric patterns that are easy to follow. Her preferred fibers to workwith are cotton and silk, but she can’t resist the crunch of chunky wool! Shecan often be found petting and cooing over a big, fat ball of yarn before getting to work!
