So for the ladies who follow me on pinterest, you will know that I've been pinning shawl patterns like a crazy woman. I think they are so very beautiful, timeless, and elegant looking.
I finally found the pattern that I thought would be perfect for hot Florida summers but would also accommodate during our mild winters, if need be. I didn't follow the pattern exactly. I stopped at the scallops because I thought they were a much prettier edging then the original patterns edging. I also single crocheted two rows around the "neckline".
I only used 3 1/2 balls of the peaches and cream cotton yarn. The yarn is 1.50$ a ball, so all in all, I paid 5.25$ for this shawl!
I had to stretch the shawl as well. All you have to do is pin down the shawl really tight, spritz it with water, iron it, and let it sit for however long you want it to. I let it sit for a few hours.
