Design by Miroslava Mihalkova from Exquisite Crochet UK.
Mannequin Shawl is a large Tunisian crochet triangular shawl that is constructed from the tip to the widest section by increasing 1 stitch every row. It uses up to 400 g of fingering yarn weight, which enables the shawl to be a great layering option and provides warmth on cold spring and autumn mornings. The pattern uses basic Tunisian crochet stitches and simple yet very effective colourwork technique, which allows you to deal with loose floats on the back of your project without much fuss.
The sample is made in beautiful colours transitioning from red all the way to purple and contrasting white colour, however this classic fabric pattern would look stunning in 2 neutral colours too.
