This is 3 Kittens Needle Arts crocheted pattern for the Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop 2012. The pattern is available free to shop hop participants from April 12-15. The yarn used is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in an exclusive, limited edition colorway, "Babbling Brook." Vänern is the largest lake in Sweden, and I feel that the shawl looks like a lake shore with the rippling water and the breaking of little waves at the shoreline.
The pattern will be available for download from the 3 Kittens Needle Arts website for $5.00 after the Shop Hop is over.
Errata - There is a typo on the 2nd page in the main section. Where it says Row 6, that should be Row 4. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.
