Bright, airy, and whimsical, this Tunisian wrap is very mod and elegant. The entrelac diamonds are balanced with open space, yet the wool-silk blend yarn gives it a surprising amount of warmth. This shawl can be completed with one skein of the suggested yarn. Intermediate skills are recommended.

The pattern is in the Spring 2010 Interweave Crochet Magazine.

This pattern is not written clearly.  It's lovely, unique and I would like to make it.  I've been crocheting for over 50 years and the pattern makes no sense to me.  Is there a line by line instruction somewhere?

It's me again - a picture is worth a thousand words and the visual respresentation for the shawl in Toni's blog did the trick and I have conquered the pattern!    Hooray and thanks a million.  Now I'll finish my swatch!
