- Worked from corner to corner
- The C2C shawl is unique as it is worked from corner to corner and can be made any size. You start off with 1 block and add 1 block per row until you have the width and length you want and then start working your border. The 1st block you make is the center point
- Rule of thumb always check your gauge.
- I have worked this shawl in a couple of different yarns to give you an idea of what they will look like. I used the recommended hook size here in the pattern so you should be able to do the same as loon as you don’t go crazy on the yarn weight.
