Sea Breeze Triangular Motif Shawl

At the time of writing this I am very much into Colinette yarns, especially their Tagliatelli and Giotto yarns.  This shawl is made using 6 x 100g skeins if Colinette Giotto in shade Sea Breeze.  Giotto is a super bulky ribbon type yarn and is 50% Cotton, 40% Rayon, 10% Nylon.

This shawl design is by Colinette yarns and was designed to be made with their Giotto yarn.  I am using a 6mm crochet hook and began this on 17th February.  I had trouble with this pattern as it just didn't read right and the wording used was confusing.  It also didn't help that the photographs in the booklet are all very catwalk/action style and there are no photos showing close ups of the motifs at all.  I finally figured it out after a few hours and then it was easy and quick to make.  Finishing this huge monster of a shawl on 27th February 2013.  I omitted the final row of motifs due to the sheer size of the thing already.

I don't want to make this again as it is so big and heavy and is really difficult to photograph successfully.
