Pattern part 1: Monday 19th December and will take approx.  half an hour to and hour to complete, each part will follow every other day and take around the same amount of time to complete depending on your speed and experience

Yarn Required: Approx. 200grams of any space dyed yarn, from sock wool to Aran all giving a different size shawl....
Measurements: all measurements are unblocked and relaxed they will be bigger when blocked

A Sample selection of random/space dyed yarns but any brand would be OK for this design a shorter dye spacing will show the rows in different colours best but a longer spacing will look good by the end, giving a subtle colour change

ANGEL WINGS SHAWL CAL
WRAP YOURSELF OR A FRIEND IN LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP
 This is Merry-Go-Round dk 4mm hook
Measures unblocked:11.5" 29cm by 6" 15.25cm

This next one is in James C Brett Marble Yarn 5mm hook
unblocked measures:11.5" 29cm by 6.5" 16.5cm



These next 2 are in the yarn i got from Pound Stretcher not as soft as some of the others but when soaked in conditioner for a few minutes and dried is perfectly acceptable yarn and a reasonable price too especially the larger ball of Aran

First one is labeled dk but is just about the same as the yarn in the picture below labeled Aran both made with a 5mm hook
measures 14" 35.5cm across 8.5" 21.5cm deep

this next one is in a super soft King Cole Drifter 
 4mm hook and measures:11.5" 29cm across 6.5" 16.5cm deep
                                 you get interesting blocks of natural colours and feels lovely

This next one is an Indie yarn, hand dyed from Truly Hooked and a 4mm hook
Measures: 9.5" 24cm across and  5.5" 14cm deep

The Angel Wings Shawl could be made in sock wool too, sorry not managed a sample yet

All the samples in the pictures are of parts 1 and 2 and would take approximately just over the hour to make form someone with a reasonable speed. a little longer for a beginner

 Angel Wings  PATTERN:
 Part 10 the finish, 2 options

OPTION 1:
NOTE: I'm not giving numbers of loops and picots for this finish, because you could all have a different number, having stopped at different places.

ROW 1: Turn, ch5,  sc [dc], into next sp, ch5, sc into next sp, repeat, to point, at ch2 point, sc [dc], ch5, sc [dc], into ch2 point, repeat ch5, sc into next sp to end, last sc [dc] goes into the sp between last 2sts.




ROW 2: Turn ch5, sc [dc], into first ch5 loop, repeat to end, Finish with a sl st into first ch st of the loop below



ROW 3:turn, sl st, into 3ch sts of the first loop (you are now in the correct place to start this row of ch5 loops)
 repeat the ch5 loops and sc sts to end of row,  finish with a sc [dc] in last ch5 loop.



ROW 4:turn, 3sc [3dc], into first ch5 loop, make a picot of ch3, sl st into the sc [dc], to complete the picot, making a tiny bobble,2sc [2dc], into the same ch5 loop, to complete the first picot detail, repeat in every ch5 loop to end




NOTE: Again no numbers of points as you could all have a different number, depending on how many rows of granny shells you do, but you should all have an odd number of granny shells not and even number for this finish 

OPTION 2:


 ROW 1: Turn, sc [dc] in first sp, between the first 2 sts, 2tr [2dtr], ch3 2tr [2dtr], in next sp, between the granny shells, sc [dc] in next sp, between gs, complete to point, in ch2 point, 2tr [2dtr], ch3, 2tr, [2dtr], in same sp, sc [dc], in next sp, repeat to end fi is with a sc [dc], in last sp.
