Skylark features an allover crochet shell and lace pattern with a simple repeat and would be the perfect “something blue” for the bride in your family. As an everyday accessory, this crochet shawl can be worn belted at the waist or wrapped around the neck with the point in front for a fresh, youthful style. A topdown triangle construction makes it convenient to stop crocheting this piece when your yarn runs low. The lovely laceweight yarn worked with a large hook creates an airy, romantic lacy shawl.
