Crochet lace is the most beautiful form of crochet.
My beautiful lace shawl pattern is so soft and delicate, it is not only suitable to be draped around your shoulders, but may also be used to warm a baby. It makes a lovely prayer shawl as well.
Wear it yourself or experience the pleasure of seeing your children enjoying the results of your personal touch in crochet.
The charm of simple crochet translated into beautiful garments has unique appeal to the style-conscious.
Easy to make but loaded with fashion sense and flattering comfort, this crochet lace shawl is a truly elegant addition to anyone’s wardrobe.
With the investment of three afternoon’s work, and approximately three and a half balls of yarn, you will soon be admiring your lovely new creation.
