The Proserpina V-stitch Shawl
"A very easy crochet shawl that mostly uses V-stitches and a slight variation of it that I called V-puff stitch.The pattern is easy to memorize so you will not have to constantly look at the instructions, very relaxing!Accessible for beginners too. You can crochet the Proserpina V-Stitch Crochet Shawl with any yarn you like and the appropriate hook. If you use a much thicker yarn, your shawl is going to grow faster, so you will have to crochet fewer rows than the ones indicated in this pattern.For example, I crocheted one Proserpina Shawl using a cotton cake in Aran weight and a 5.5 mm crochet hook."
