Arrowhead shawl – get the point!

Arrowhead shawl

An easy piece for beginners, Matthew Spiers’ arrowhead shawl is a lightweight make that’s ideal for summer lounging. Each diamond is made independently and stitched together as you go, making this easy for every level of crocheter, and the mini motifs are perfect for using up old yarn scraps. The tassels give this look a finished feel and the explosion of colour is sure to draw admiring glances.
