Skill level: Beginner
Here’s the shawl you want in warm weather! Yes, you read that right—a warm-weather shawl is really necessary for your collection. From the beach to the office, there are breezy times when you just need another layer.
The Gorgeous Moonlit Shells Shawl is designed by I Love Crochet favorite Jennifer E. Ryan, and it’s just the thing to protect you from those too-cool theaters and conference rooms.
Jennifer combines two simple stitches, double crochet shell clusters and chains, to create an openwork wrap that you won’t leave home without.
Although this is an easy pattern suitable for beginners, the simplicity is deceiving because it looks like a complex work of art!
The gorgeous drape is created with DK-weight cotton worked with a size K hook, so there are no tight stitches to impede the airiness of this shawl.
The key to this lightweight lace design is the chain work between the shell clusters. The open nature of the stitch pattern lends itself to all sorts of warm-weather outfits, easily at home with white pants or a sun dress, or even a wedding gown!
Jennifer gilded the lily on this one, adding teardrop beads to the picot points all around the edging of the shawl. This beautiful detail makes Moonlit Shells perfectly appropriate for a bridal shawl. Work it up in white with iridescent beads and present it with pride to the bride. What an amazing gift.
The openwork crochet shells and lace edging also give this sweater a feminine feel. The design is simple enough to wear with a floral dress yet has enough texture to add interest to a little black dress. We love how this design looks in lavender, but this cardigan would look wonderful in any color.
The Moonlit Shells Shawl pattern includes:
- Complete stitch instructions
- List of necessary materials
- Special stitch tips
- A downloadable chart to show you where to place beads
- Pattern notes
- Detailed photography
- Finishing instructions
The Moonlit Shells Shawl is the perfect project if you’re a beginner, because you’ll use stitches you already know, put them together creatively, to create a fabulous finished piece. More experienced crocheters will enjoy it too, as a change of pace.
This is just a lovely shawl that spans the seasons from spring to fall. What are you waiting for? Grab your hook and go!
