I think that it is a bonus when I find a pattern that also includes a stitch diagram. This pattern does have one. It must be a sign for me that I need to make this pretty shawl. I have been looking for a light-weight accessory item to wear to chilly restaurants and this must be the one. What color would be a good neutral color but still have a tropical look?

Thank you for this pattern for a spring/summer weight shawl/scarf! We live in a warmer part of the states and can't easily take advantage of the heavier yarns except for two and maybe three months of the year. When you spend the time creating you like to be able to show your creations off a bit! This one will allow me to do just that!

This is another very challenging crochet project to make. Well maybe for crocheters who already know how to do the popcorn stitch, this will just be easy peasy activity. This Vintage Lace Popcorn Shawl is very versatile as it can both serve as a shawl and a scarf. This can be done in another color of your choice and this is perfect as Mother's Day gift or birthday gift to mom. Cheers!

I never made my popcorn stitch the way it is described in this pattern! What an easy and fun way to make one. Instead of making your double crochets and not finishing each one (you leave the last loop of each on your hook), you complete ALL your double crochets in the space and then take your hook OUT of the loop and insert your hook into the first double crochet of the group. You then take the loop you previously abandoned and hook it through. It creates a nice popcorn! It's fun!

I am making it now. It is very pretty. I'm a fairly new crocheted. For edging, which is considered the side? The long or short part? Thanks.

Such a beautiful piece. So classic and so femine. Very simple instructions. Short and concise. I thought at first glance that some were missing but see that it is complete. Love the vintage look and the antique color of the yarn the designer used. This would look perfect matched with a pearl necklace and a vintage dress.

I haven't made this yet but I cant wait to do so! So many patterns, so little time! When I look at the picture I cant help visualizing Greta Garbo or Grace Kelly in the shawl. The texture of the stitch is simply perfect too because the uniformity and the 3-D look just give the shawl a little something extra.

Is this an American pattern or English, please

I love the look of this Vintage Lace Popcorn Shawl. The pattern is well written and with the chart it looks easy enough to make. I like the texture the popcorn stitch give and the yarn is just beautiful. I can't wait to make this one and have it on my to do list along with many more. This is one my daughters will want to steel.. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

Is this supposed to be blocked or have some other modifications afterward? Mine is not looking near as crisp as the one in the photo... this Paton's Lace yarn has a good bit of mohair in it and it is quite fuzzy. Not quite what I was expecting from the picture. Nice pattern though, I might try it again with a different yarn.

Why don't you have it so we can print the pattern out.

Hi hpigeau404 8850704, We just added a "print" button for this pattern. Thanks! -editors of AllFreeCrochet

Made this in two nights! A breeze after I followed teamjbar's advice on the dc5tog-made it in aran-just beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

This pattern is maybe the loveliest I've seen on this site. I'm starting it now. After doing a couple popcorns, I decided to revise the popcorn technique to be more fluid...don't like taking the hook out to make them, and I actually split my yarn on the first one. dc5tog looks even cleaner andfor meis less awkward. Thank you for the beautiful pattern. I'm hoping to wear my shawl for my Valentine.

You are no longer doing a popcorn stitch your way. It is a 5 dc cluster that you are making. However, if that is what works for you so be it. They are very similar. Good luck. May you have much success with your method.
