Leah’s Lace is a crescent-shaped shawl or scarf worked from the top down. Its generous proportions and airy drape allow it to be worn as a shawl or gathered as a scarf. The pattern can be easily adjusted to make any size wrap or to use almost every yard of that special yarn.
This pattern continues the collaboration between Gina Lynette and Julie Blagojevich. As with Shayron’s Lace, Gina has provided crocheters with “recipe” advice. If you would like to use a heavier weight of yarn, a specific amount of yarn, or you would like to make the shawl shorter or longer, you will find Gina’s notes on this most helpful. For those of you who want to slip a 1-pg print copy in your project bag, Gina has also included a “print and go” page with all of the instructions and none of the photos.
Leah’s Lace is named for my friend, Leah, a very talented knitted socks designer, who is always fun to work with.
Stitches and stitch combinations used: chain, double crochet, double crochet three together, half double crochet, single crochet, slip stitch, triple crochet.
Post-blocking dimentions: 64 in. from tip to tip and 17 in. wide.
The pattern pdf includes 7 photos of the wrap as it develops as well as photos of the completed project.

“or approximately 640 yds (892 m) of lace weight yarn” on pg 2 should read or approximately 640 yds (585 m) of lace weight yarn.
