Hooked for Life All Tied Up PDF
All Tied Up from Hooked For Life is extra wide at the top so you can tie it around your shoulders, leaving your hands free to bike, antique, or do whatever is your free time activity of choice without worrying about your beautiful shawl getting mangled. Its unique construction came about because I hate to sew seams! This shawl grows organically from bottom point to top edge with only two small seams to sew at the end. If you are looking for lacy and delicate, or are a much smaller person than I am, use the pattern as written with a lighter weight yarn and appropriate hook.
