Wrap yourself in this ridiculously soft and drapey shawl stitched in a blend of silk, yak, and merino wool. Named for my grandmother and mother in law, Betty Lee uses classic crochet stitches to create subtle radiating lines and a delicate, lacy edge.

As written, the shawl has a wingspan of 58” and a depth of 30”, but this is easily adjustable as indicated in the pattern.

Gauge is not critical, but will affect the size of the FO and yardage required.

Betty Lee looks wonderful in 2 skeins of Yarn Love Mr. Darcy in Verdigris.

Errata: Row 2 should read “Ch 3, turn, dc in first dc and each of next 2 dc, 2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc in ch 3 sp (C SH made), dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in top of ch 3.
