Difficulty: Easy

All too often, designs crocheted with bulky yarn can turn out thick, chunky, and even stiff. By using a large hook, though, bulky yarn is transformed into something light and lacy that loses none of its coziness. Only a single skein of yarn and basic crochet stitches are needed to create this sweet shawlette, making it a great gift. You could always make one for yourself, though, and why not? It’s fast, easy, and it feels as light as flower petals wrapped around your shoulders.

    I can’t wait to give this a try. Very beautiful. Thanks so much! I donate the prayer shawls I make to our church and the pastor makes sure they go where they are needed in the community. I appreciate your letting us use your pattern for free. God Bless!
