1862 Granny Square Shawl Pattern Link

Going through the Antique pattern library book list links, looking for bruges lace items (finding a photo but nothing else so far), I found a book printed in 1862 and it had a granny square shawl on it!

Here's the link http://www.antiquepatterns.dreamhosters.com/RiegoLaModeWinter.pdf it's on page 4.

I like it as there is a neck and then even a tie. I would prefer to leave off the fridge.
Your guess as to what type and size of yarn and hook is probably as good as mine... lol... probably worsted weight I would think, but who knows... I would actually like to make this shawl...

Enjoy the links!
