Maya Tasseled Shawl

Maya is a quadrilateral shawl perfect for layering in a variety of ways. The tassels in each corner add weight to the airy Boho feel. Using all four of the common crochet stitches— single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and chain stitches — this is the perfect shawl for new crocheters to try.

    This shawl is beautiful and I can’t wait to try it! It will be perfect to wear at my desk at work this winter because it’s so drafty ????

    So pretty but I wish it had also been photographed lying flat to be able to see the unique shape!

    This is a lovely shawl. I must have done something wrong, as on side was longer than the other. I suspect I should have used stitch markers, but the instructions do not indicate where to place the markers. I thought I might be able to fudge the difference in size, but I decided to rip the whole thing out and begin again. Can you advise please? Of note, I am a Charter Member, happily so.

      Hi, the overall shape of the Shaw is a kite shape but as you work both sides should be the same length, place stitch markers in the middle two stitches. Because the starting row is so long it might be worth popping a stitch marker in in evenly placed stitches, I usually go with every fifty stitches, to help keep track of stitches
