Trying out my hand at designing a Asymmetrical shawl crochet pattern was fun to say the least! To get to see it grow every row was actually quite satisfying!

This is a super easy 2 row repeat and looks great on both sides! It doesn’t get better than this, does it?

Me and my husband actually like the way the back of the stitch looks better than the front side of the stitch. Which for us makes this a double sided shawl!

I’ll let you decide
