In 1979, an extremely patient, saint-of-a-woman taught me and ten or so other 8-year-old girls to crochet for our Bible School craft project. Somehow, that teacher retained her sanity and I retained a love for yarn. I took to the hook and have been crocheting ever since, making everything from doilies, to baby clothes, sweaters and footies, hats and scarves. After 20 years, I abandoned patterns and started experimenting with my own designs.
I'm a girly-girl in the extreme. I love pretty colors, soft textures, and anything that sparkles. So my idea of a good crochet project is a fun, feminine, flirty piece that feeds the fashionista in me!

The soft yarn, fan stitch detail, and arched edging in this pattern combine to form a warm, sensuous shawl that you will love having wrapped around you. Made with easy-to-obtain Simply Soft, you can pick up the skeins at your local Wal-mart or national craft store chains for a few dollars each, making it an economical project. Where can you buy a beautiful wrap like this one for less than ten dollars?
The shawl can be worn numerous ways: clasped at the shoulder, ends draped down the front, or tied around the waist. Enjoy experimenting to create your own unique look.
The pattern has two-row repeat and uses basic stitches. It took me just 8 to 10 hours to complete this project or a couple nights' work, depending on how fast you crochet. This pattern includes written instructions as well as crochet charts to demonstrate pattern techniques.
