Pattern is worked from the bottom point up, making it extremely customizable.

Pattern stitch has a LOT of stretch; this shawl can be blocked to make it as lacy as the crocheter would like.

Thank you to Karen Whooley who first taught me this stitch!


August 8, 2014 - The newest picture added to this pattern is from the shawl on the runway at the Friday Fashion Show at Stitches Midwest 2014. I’m very proud to be one of three crochet garments shown in the show!
