I like that it is made with larger gauge yarn. Amazing Elegant Shawl: free crochet pattern - I did this in cream.it turned out beautifully! I made mine a bit bigger than the pattern calls for, because I love large wraps.
DIY straw weaving loom: Weave the yarn over and under the straws. Keep the weaving as tight as possible. As the straws become wrapped in yarn, slide the straws down to re-expose them. Continue weaving until your piece reaches the desired length.
