Advanced

Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(2) Fine (23-26 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet Gauge1 Shell = about 2 in. (5 cm) wide, with 2 strands of yarn held tog. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Finished SizeFinished Length - 19 in. (48.5 cm) Finished Width - (along bottom of Shawl) 72 in. (183 cm)

  • Lion Brand 861-150 Vanna's Glamour Yarn: Platinum - 10 balls

Wow! This lace crochet shawl has a lot of design elements to it. I think is is a very unique design and I am sure the advance skill level is a true measure of this work. Although I have a few projects under my belt, I may need some help from my crochet friends to get this one done.

Why has the save to favorites gone from the All Free Crochet site? I love seeing beautiful things to crochet later but can no loner save them

Hi jan, The save button is still there! It's been moved to below the pattern, with our other social icons. It's a gray button with a little + on it. :) Thanks! Julia, AllFreeCrochet editor

Nice lacey shawl from Lion Brand yarns. Very feminine. Renaissance Fest worthy. Would add a great final touch to your costume. Also would look great as pictured with just a pair of jeans to jazz up your casual outfit for the day. Doesnt look like it would provide much warmth though, just a fashion statement.

I love to wear shawls with hoods because the hood is additional protection from the cold but I don't think I want to wear something like this Maid Marion Lace Crochet Shawl because is too airy, and too flimsy. I don't like this so much because the opening of the shawl is too low so I don't think this will be enough for the very cold weather.

Superior looking home made crocheted poncho, absolutely breathtaking. If I were to begin to take on this "advanced" project, if I actually were able to complete it, I would classify that as a labor or love and a true miracle! I can't stop staring at this work of art. The Vanna's Choice Glamour yarn is amazing for this piece. If you've got the patience and the know how, see how you will do with this!

the poncho is lovely but I would have the hood for decoration, I wouldn't wear it. I have to agree that a video to go along with this project would be extremely helpful. I have not picked up a crochet hook for years until just recently. I had taken up knitting because I could not find clothing patterns that were crocheted. I was pleasantly surprised to find that had changed so I am retiring the knitting needles for a while and trying to remember my crochet stitches I learrned years ago from my Aunt Hope.

Ill probably never do it, but this is my personal Fantasy Crochet Project. Its so lacy and romantic, and completely impractical except for a fashion statement or costume piece. It IS an Advanced pattern, so why are there only written directions posted for this project? Theres very little description of the special stitches, and I would love a video. Any hope of an edit?

am I missing something cause I only have 4 shells on the first shell row?

The pattern is correct, you should have 5 shells. Shell in 6th st, knot st, sk3, sc, knot, sk3, shell, ch15/sk15, shell, knot, sk3, sc, knot, sk3, shell, ch13/sk13, shell. 5 shells if worked exactly like the pattern. Did you chain the correct amount of stitches?

love the look of this shawl for a medieval group I am involved with - do you have a picture of the BACK of it?? (the Maid Marion Shawl)

Check the Lion Brand website. They may have a picture of the back since this is their pattern. Probably not though because this looks like a stock photo, but it's worth a check.

How can one make this longer. Beautiful cape. I would just like one longer at least knee length. I think that would be pretty awesome. Rate this a 5

add additional rows to the bottom?
