Crochet: Shawl / Wrap
Crisp linen hooked into a web of lace creates the perfect wrap for spring and summer evenings. The clusters of half double crochet are like little flowers, and the classic mesh edging is adorned with tiny beaded dewdrops. The linen is cool on the skin, and softens with use to create an instant favorite.
