TOURNAMENT OF STITCHES 2022 – SMOOTH JAZZ PLAY 1 DIAGRAM
- Gauge is not critical in this project. Lace crochet easily can grow depending on how you make your chains. If your project measures larger, it will still be a beautiful project. If Play 1 is between 30-36” at the base, and 16-19” in height the final shawl will be great!
- Project is worked on its longest side first and each row will shorten after creating a triangle.
- Optional: If you do not want to start your project with foundation sc, you can chain instead.
