This is a Lovely Lavender gradient pattern with an open work mesh appearance. It is a perfect light cover up for a cool spring and summer evening. Only Chain and Single crochet stitches were used which makes it a great beginner pattern! Depending upon the yarn you choose the finished shawl stretches to an additional length of 1 - 4 inches. With Caron Cakes the stretch was only 1 inch without blocking; no blocking was necessary. I recently worked this pattern using Caron Simply Soft and the finished size was 47” and draped to the top of the elbow. I also recently worked a shawl from this pattern using I Love This Cotton and the finished stretch was 46”.
