When I saw this luminous and delicate yarn (Aurora by Jill Draper Makes Stuff), I instantly knew I had to design a gossamer crochet lace shawl for it. I see so many gorgeous lace weight knitted shawl patterns, but not nearly so many in crochet. And I just knew it would be divine! So here is that shawl: Borealis.

Constructing this shawl is really quite simple; once you begin you’ll see that the stitches practically tell you what to do next for each row. The pattern is 10 pages long, only because I felt it was important to write out each row, since each one increases, and then later decreases, as the diamond shapes progress. But don’t be daunted by the number of pages; even an advanced beginner could handle it, as long as they have the dedication to follow the pattern!

The pattern is worked from the top center point out, in rows.
