Basalt Shawl – by Fay Dashper-Hughes
Basalt is an asymmetric shawl that can be crocheted bottom-up or top-down (instructions are given for both within this pattern). It’s based on the beautiful geological feature of hexagonal basalt columns that are found across the planet. Inspired by Fingal’s Cave and The Giant’s Causeway, our best known basalt columns in the UK, Basalt the shawl came into being.
