This exquisitely beautiful shawl can be crocheted with under 800 yards of yarn over a weekend. Inspired by the shawl worn by Jessica Simpson on the MTV show "The Newlyweds", this shawl is an essential accessory for any season and a great way to achieve the modern, romantic look. This pattern is easy to crochet. One size fits all. Approximate finished measurements without fringe are 69" wide with border (65" without border) and 35" long with border (33" without border).
Stitch Diva's directions feature a bottom-up construction so you can just stop crocheting when the shawl reaches your desired length. In addition, the pattern includes an optional border and shaping for a shorter, wider shawl. The shawl is featured in three different yarns to inspire you to truly make this shawl your own.
As pictured the design is created with 8 skeins of Noro Hana Silk. Other yarns you might choose are Fiesta La Luz and Fiesta Rayon Boucle held together, or Katrina by Patons. Substitute yarn gauge (as stated on the yarn label) is 14 sts = 4" (Bulky Weight Yarn). Suggested crochet hook is a 7 (4.5 mm) Crochet Hook. You will also need a Locking-Type Stitch Marker.
