The Peony Bouquet Shawlette is fresh and springy, crocheted in lightweight, cool cotton. An easy-to-crochet v-stitch triangle creates a beautiful, modern drape and two delicate shell buttons help to keep the shawlette in place.
Skill Level: Easy

Shawlette is worked from the bottom up in a v-stitch and finished with a simple scallop edging along the top edge. Two delicate buttons are sewn on for adjustability and to help keep the shawlette in place. The shawl is styled by wearing the buttoned part on the shoulder and allowing it to drape across the other shoulder and down the front, but it can be worn many other ways too!
