This pattern was designed by Anastacia Zittel. It was a nice pattern to make and turned out very nice. I used a K hook with worsted weight #4 acrylic yarn. The shawl as pictured took 16 ounces/451 grams - 781 yards/713 meters. It worked up very fast. I recommend the pattern for anyone starting out in crochet and wanting to make a lovely gift. You can use any weight yarn and crochet until you make the size you want.
