Claremont Tunisian Shawl Revealed!

I think I gave you a peek at the Claremont Tunisian Shawl before, but it's finally time to tell you about it! Here's the link to the peek....
It's the Claremont Tunisian Shawl and the construction... 3 big squares... was inspired by my friend, Vashti. (Waving, Hi Vashti!)
 I knew that I wanted to make a shawl. I knew I wanted it to be Tunisian.  I wasn't thrilled about using a really long flexible cable afghan hook. I wasn't thrilled about making REALLY long rows.... This pattern was perfect because I was able to make THREE squares. That's it. Three squares. It's a treble crochet stitch. Then, after the squares were made, on the edging, I crocheted them together.
 Joining them "as you go" makes this gorgeous lattice detail shown on Robyn's arm here....
 When I saw the Yarn Love Yarn in this glorious color, I knew it was going to be one of my favorite designs of all time. It's the "Amy March" dk. It comes in many solid and multi colors.  It's 100% Merino.

The EASY Tunisian pattern is available as a KIT through MyCrochetKits .  Here's the link to the Ravelry page so you can read more details and "Favorite" it if you like!

Just found your blog! Anyway, I LOVE that shawl! It's gorgeous. I've been looking for a lighter shawl pattern, one that would be good for warmish spring days.
