Years ago, and long beore I begandesigning shawls, I came across a amousItalian designer’s crocheted shawl with cir-cular motis along the bottom edge o theotherwise simple, mesh triangular shawl.I ell in love with the relationship o simplic-ity to complexity in the shawl, and createdmy own interpretation o the concept inThe Maya shawl. The body o the shawleatures hal double crochet through theback loops, leaving a lovely, sharp, lineardetail where the ree ront loops parallelthe more complex motis along the border.The motis are joined as you go and thetriangular section is picked up rom the topo the motis, thereore–no sewing!
