It's finally here! I've been working on designing this pattern for a little over a month now, and I was actually expecting it to take longer to finally be ready to release for downloading. You can purchase your pattern here.
The Lotus Shawlette is a small shawl/triangle scarf named for its lovely picot lace edging, which resembles the serene petals of a lotus flower.
Using two colors, this shawl features blocks of solid color with intermittent stripes throughout. Pair two bold colors for a colorblock statement, or contrasting light and dark colors for a classic contrast striped shawl. Or, if you like a more subtle effect, use two similar shades.
Materials you will need:
180 Yards light fingering weight yarn in Color A
320 Yards light fingering weight yarn in Color B
(500 total yards of yarn, varies slightly with the weight of yarn you chose, as you can substitute with Lace or DK if you'd like)
Size F/3.75mm crochet hook
Pins for Blocking
You can adjust the yarn weight and hook size if you'd like, to work with the yarn you have. I would recommend using up to a DK weight yarn at the largest (this will make a larger shawl rather than a small shawlette/neckerchief), do note that yardage needed and gauge will be different if you do this.
Finished Dimensions using light fingering yarn and size F hook:
Width (at widest point) 18”
Length (wingspan) 49”
