Tracy St. John designed this shawl for a friend to wear in her wedding, with buttons and drawstrings at the wrist that convert the shawl into a shrug to free the hands for dancing and cake eating. The quick-to-learn lace pattern goes quickly despite the fine yarn and small hook size. Charming mis-matched vintage shell buttons fulfill the "something old" requirement.

Finished Size: About 16" wide and 72" long.
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace undyed (50% silk, 50% wool; 1,250 yd [1,142 m]/4 oz [113 g]; ): natural, 2 hanks.
Yarn weight: #1 - Super Fine
Gauge: 2 patt rep and 13 rows = 3" in flower patt.
Hook: Size 1.75 mm steel hook. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.
Notions: Fine-yarn needle; sharp embroidery needle; sixteen ½" buttons; 2 yd of 3/8" wide ribbon; matching sewing thread.

This is so pretty !
I made this for my daughter in law and used a comparable yarn. The pattern is easy to follow and it is really ingenious. It builds the pattern with each row and you crochet the length instead of the width. Instead of the buttons called for, I made my own with 5/8 inch plastic rings which I crocheted around, pushed the outside edge inside and sewed it shut. I then placed 3 tiny crystals on each button. It turned out GREAT ! The buttons are light enough they don't weigh the piece down. I had a lot of fun working this pattern and kept thinking how smart the creator of this pattern is! Wonderful project ! Review by Paula Womack (Posted on 8/22/2011)
