Sweetheart Lace Shawl is an original PlanetJune Accessories crochet pattern by June Gilbank.
Sweetheart Lace Shawl is a triangular shawl with an elegant curve along the top edge so it hugs your neck and won't fall off your shoulders. Using only basic stitches, the lace grows from the centre top so you can keep crocheting until the shawl is the size you want, then add the picot border as the finishing touch.
My lace patterns are designed to be worked with normal-sized hooks into the spaces between stitches, which means that there's no hunting for those tiny fine loops to work into, and they are a pleasure to work.
The size of the shawl is totally up to you - just keep crocheting until it's the size you wish! Please bear in mind that crocheted lace stretches when blocked, so it will grow when you block it.
- Solid sample shawl measures 43” (wingspan) x 21” (tall) unblocked; 46" x 23" blocked
- Variegated sample shawl measures 46" (wingspan) x 22" (tall) unblocked; 57" x 28" blocked
Yarn and hook: Yarn of your choice (any yarn weight will work with this pattern; using a thicker yarn will increase the size of the stitch pattern and make the resulting shawl bulkier) and an appropriate hook (hook size advice is provided in the pattern)
- Solid sample used 350m/380yds DK weight 100% acrylic microfibre yarn and a J US/6mm hook
- Variegated sample used 385m/420yds fingering weight 70% merino/30% silk yarn and an I US/5.5mm hook
Optional: blocking wires and/or rustproof pins, and a surface for blocking
