crochet pattern - wine country shawl by kim miller.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Inspired by the majestic orchards, and wineries of BC, Wine Country is a light weight, carefree, crescent shawl that works well as a shoulder wrap, or scarf. This crochet shawl is worked from the top down, and not only does it drape beautifully around the neckline, but the long ends naturally twirl as they cascade down towards the waistline.

This crochet pattern calls for 1¾ skeins of Midknit Cravings Lush Fingering (100% superwash merino) 100 g (3.5 ounces)/400 meters (437 yards) per skein, a 3.25 mm (D) crochet hook, and a yarn needle. This detailed crochet pattern includes written instructions, and illustrations to help you along the way.

The blocked the shawl measures approximately 172.7 cm (68”) at it’s widest point, and 39.4 cm (15.5”) at it’s longest point. Please note that measurements are approximate and will be affected by the gauge and the brand of yarn.
