Ever since Snowdrop came out in Crochetvolution, I’ve wanted to revisit the shawl for a lacier, more upscale version. I still wanted to keep the asymmetrical shape and wanted to keep it extremely easy to make, and you had to be able to use any yarn and any hook to make it. A simple stitch change was all it took. Heavy blocking is needed to open up the lace pattern, so using a fiber you feel comfortable with blocking is a must.
