It was while swatching for another project that the idea for this shawl was born. With simple stitches, an asymmetrical shape, and an edging of petal-like points, the Snowdrop Shawl proves that a project doesn’t have to be complicated to be a knockout.

Very cool… gotta try this!
Beautiful shawl, thanks so much for sharing it! One question, I can’t find a reference for the amount of yarn needed. Do you remember how much you used?
I used about 7 ounces – I could have used a bit more to make it a bit bigger, but I had only 7 ounces of the yarn (which was a mystery vintage acrylic yarn). It does use up more yarn than a traditional lace shawl because of the textured stitch. Hope this helps!
Loving this pattern! My very first baby afghan for my first Grandchild was this st pattern I really enjoy, sc in dc, dc in sc, made even more lovely with the style Anastacia has created. Nice drape too with the 7.5mm hook.
hola estoy visitandote muy bueno voy a llevarme algun patroncito para mostrarlo en mi blog un beso grande desde uruguay
Love this. Just finished one. One question though; do you have other pics to show how to wear it?
OK, Things are going well. but I finished row 13 that ends with double crochet that is marked. Now I continue to row 10 and it says turn etc. into the last single crochet marked. Row 13 ended with the double crochet. Pattern says continue rows 10-13. Can someone advise, please?
I’ve started this project several times and taken in out each time before with can get to the 7th row. For some reason, I can’t get the pattern to do what I think bit should and have gotten myself confused about how many stitches are supposed to be placed into one stitch. I’m not coming out with the correct numbers of stitches in each row. Do you have a diagram available of the stitches so I can see how it looks? Thanks you!
thanks so much- can’t wait to start!
What a beautiful wrap. Thank you for the pattern. I like to give unique gifts of crochet like this pattern to friends.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this!! Will definitely be adding this for a friend who wanted a shawl without any holes……… you are a lifesaver!!!!! Thanks for making this available!
Thank you Anastacia for sharing this lovely pattern! I can’t wait to try it!I have a silky soft Bamboo blend, calls for a “G” hook, even though I just did a scarf with an “I” hook with it! It’s Naturally Caron.com “Spa”, and it doesn’t say the weight on the skein! Made in Turkey! In any event it’s lighter than worsted, maybe a DK or sport, I’m gonna give it a shot! 🙂
i dont know how many to chain to start out. please help.???
i am using a little lighter than worsted weight and prob a J hook.
dying to start so please help

Hi there, I’m thinking about making this lovely shawl with British Mohair. do you think this would suit? Thanks in advance. Jennifer Hodges
I love the simpleness and uniqueness of your shawl….it’s stunningly beautiful, thank you for sharing your patterns.
You don’t say the number of stitches to start with and I see someone else asked that very question last year. Can you please answer? I would like to start my project ASAP.
Thank you so much, Betty L Radcliffe
Hi, Betty! The answer is 2. Hope that helps.
Thanks and now I understand. Sometimes things are right in front of us and we just don’t see them. Sorry for the brain disconnect. Betty Lynn
I don’t remember what the abbreviation for the different stitches. Could you please tell me what they are. Thank you Susan Hafner
sc= single crochet
dc= double crochet
That looks to be all there is. Looks easy. I am going to try this for a Christmas gift I think.
I made two of these using the Elann wool and got amazing results…beautiful colors and so stylish! This is definitely a crochet pattern I will repeat many times. Thanks for sharing with us!
Please can you tell me how to wear this shawl and wat is a good size. How long?
