Simple patterns. Stylish results! This lace shawl was crocheted in one piece from corner-to-corner. The Body consisted of a 2-row Cross-stitch lace pattern while the Border was simultaneously worked in an 8-row Greek Key filet crochet mesh. For the First Corner, stitches were gradually increased until the desired Shawl depth was achieved. The Body then commenced and, through the use of smaller stitches at the neck edge, the piece began to gently curve to produce a crescent-like silhouette. Finally, the Second Corner was made by gradually decreasing stitches to taper down the fabric. Based on the simple patterning, it was easy to memorize both the Body and Border patterns after a few repeats. I used 2 50-gram balls of Jazz Handz Fusion Fiber Color Change Gradient (100% cotton) in the Shake A Teal Feather colorway and it turned out beautifully. I worked the first ball from the inside-out. Then, to create a mirrored color effect, I cut the last color from the second ball and proceeded to work the second ball from the outside-in. Once the stitching was completed, I wet blocked the entire piece just to set the stitches…..and I’m thrilled with how it turned out! I also think this pattern would make a striking formal shawl if made in a solid laceweight cashmere.
