"I originally designed this shawl for Simply Crochet magazine quite a number of years ago (way back for issue 8!) and am so pleased to share it with you now. It’s effortlessly easy to wear and I love it so much I have a few in different colours! It consists of 5 lace panels in different sizes that are edged, then joined, followed by a delicate edging around the whole thing and then finally a big old fringe at each short end to finish. It sounds complicated but I promise it’s much easier than it seems."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Do not confuse a double, a treble, and a double treble for what we in the states call a SINGLE, DOUBLE, and a TRIPLE crochet. Just be aware of that! This 100% cotton lace shawl is so vintage-y looking. It looks like gramma's heirloom piece that you brought out to wear for a special occasion. Comprised of several panels, each with different stitches, then sewn together. Hey, wouldn't this be beautiful in a tea stained colored yarn, too? If you bought a natural yarn you could dip dye the completed piece for a really unique effect!
