Orchid Faroese Shawl
The juxtaposition of loose-to firm-gauge crochet is quite interesting in this crochet shawl. Using a 2:1 ratio of gauge, the stitch count doubles by going from the large to the small. This would apply to whatever sized 2:1 ratio hooks you experiment with at home. I love the texture of the very loose gauge in an otherwise tight stitch. However, when you want a lot of detailed stitchwork, like this beautiful floral crochet edging, you need the crisp stitch definition of a finer hook size.
