Greenfuse is a meditative project that is perfect for an adventurous beginning crocheter who wants to play with shaping. As one end lengthens, the other shortens, leading to an asymmetrical crescent shape. The finished crochet shawl is lovely as a shoulder wrap worn with the longer end hanging forward and the wider wedge end curling to hug the shoulders.
