I used to have a gorgeous, drapey crochet shawl back in college that I somehow lost track of. Since then, I have been dreaming about making a similar one. Susan Sheby, our resident pattern designer, has done just that and come up with this pattern. This is the ideal coverup for a cool summer night. The glint of sparkle also adds a little bit of fancy.

The pattern calls for 2 skeins of our Maharani silk yarn. It’s a simple crochet pattern that will just take a little bit of time to get the hang of before you’re a pro.
