Crochet pattern for an asymmetrical triangular shawl, worked sideways.
You start at the bottom, and you work upwards. In the beginning few increases are being made, to create a rather long and pointy tail. Afterwards more increases are worked to give the shawl a wide and comfortable shape.
It is very easy to change the size of the shawl, and you can also use any yarn weight you like ! Fully written pattern, with charts, pictures and a schematic
