What advice would you give someone starting this project? Four skeins of Patons Lace Sequins in Amber is the perfect yarn! A hook size of US H (5.00mm) is what is recommended in the pattern and what I used, but you could go up a size or two and use fewer skeins. It's easy to crochet up once you get the hang of this 2 row pattern by Bonita Patterns. A long run yarn is really gorgeous in this stitch. The orange"ish" shawl is 3 skeins of Patons Lace in Bonfire. Little gold sequins add a hint of glitter and shine.
