As crazy as 2020 has been this year has flown by. I can’t believe it is already half over. I have been home from work since the beginning of April because of the pandemic and I still can’t seem to get through my to do list.  Probably because I can’t stay off the computer long enough to stop buying yarn.

Anyway, this pattern is easy enough for a beginner,  I believe especially if you have made a granny square before. The shawl is basically  just half of a granny square. I’ve been working on it for a while, but not because it takes a long time to complete. It’s just as I said before, I have been unmotivated and unable to get things done. This will work up quickly for most. The silk yarn and open stitch make this shawl perfect for summer nights, relaxing on the porch or grilling out.


Materials Needed:
3.75 mm hook
300 yd. fingering weight yarn in silk or silk blend (mc) [ I recommend Darn Good Yarn Lace weight silk yarn]
50-70 yd of contrast color (cc) lace weight

Stitches Used:

ch= chain
dc = double crochet
sc= single crochet
Additional Terms
Picot:  Most picots are made by chaining three and the sc in the first ch, and you can still do it this way if you are more comfortable. But, for the picot in this edging, I chained 2 and the sc in the first.

8 rows

Additional Notes:
Turning chain counts as a dc.

    Trying to get the pattern for the Summer2020 roundup, but there is not a working link to the pattern except on Ravelry and then it won’t accept the “code”

      Hi. Thanks for participating in the Summer Solstice Giveaway. Have you tried putting the pattern in your cart and then adding coupon code? I just tested the links and the code and both worked.
