Selkie begins with the spiral/wave edge. Each spiral starts with a Magic loop with Tunisian crochet stitches worked on the round out from that centre point. Once the first part of the spiral is complete, the second part is created with a series of foundation Tunisian crochet columns.
The next spiral is then started separately and joined-as-you-go to the previous one.
Once complete, Tunisian Simple Stitch layers are build on top of the spirals to make the body of the shawl.
This pattern comes with easy-to-follow charts and text instruction and links to helpful technique videos.
