This simple elegant shawl is crocheted from the top down using basic stitches and is based on a simple stitch pattern called fans lacy stitch. It is available in small, medium, and large. It can be worn as a shawl, cowl, or wrap because it is so light. The ruffled edge detail changes appearance depending on how it is worn and is sure to appeal to all ages. Any light to medium weight yarn may be used. Lighter weight yarns will have a more lacy appearance.

2” x 2” or 5 cm x 5 cm = 5 sc x 7 rows before blocking. Your gauge does not need to be spot on, just be sure that the neck band (when stretched) fits on your shoulders where you would like it to. This determines the drape of the finished shawl.

Blocking is essential for this piece. It truly changes the size and drape of the finished garment.
