PATTERN NOTES
Sometimes you just need a little shawl to warm your heart—and the Be Mine shawl is the perfect match. Knit out of Papyrus, this velvety soft project is a delightful Valentine’s treat. It features stripes with a lace heart motif that are reminiscent of conversation heart candies.

This shawl is knit from the top-down using a garter tab cast on. Increases occur on right-side rows only. For an elastic bind off, we recommend the Suspended bind-off. There are many tutorials available online. Otherwise, be sure to bind off loosely. The shawl is finished with a crochet picot edging.

For your convenience, this pattern is charted and written. If desired, use stitch markers to keep track of pattern repeats.

You can find a blog post featuring a tutorial for the Suspended Bind off here. We also have a tutorial on a Crochet Picot Edging here, but please note that instead of entirely skipping a stitch between picots as directed in the tutorial, you will instead work a slip stitch in the stitch between picots.

The shawl pin in the photos is by Jul Designs and is available for purchase here.
