Laura is a crescent shaped shawl worked from side to side in one piece, both the body and the edging. With this construction, you don't have to worry about run out of yarn. Just make sure you weigh your yarn in the beginning and do the other half when halfway through (or a little before, to be safe). I choose this name because Laura is my favourite character in my favourite book "Little House on The Prairie".
Instructions come in 3 sizes, small medium and large, but you can adjust the size. As with all my other patterns, this pattern comes with row-by-row written direction in US crochet term and charts.
