With a southwestern feeling, and looking a bit like a doily, this gorgeous shawl is the perfect accessory for cool summer nights or wrapping around yourself at the pool. The open pattern and breathable cotton used makes this a great summer fashion statement. Great to add a pop of color to a summer outfit without adding too much heat!

This feeling flirty lacy shell shawl is so light and delicate. Work this crochet pattern from the bottom up. Start with one shell and continue adding a shell to each side as you work up. Since this is made from a yarn cake that has beautiful, variegated colors throughout, there were just two yarn ends to weave in at the end. This lacy shell stitch is achieved by repeating two rows throughout this pattern. One row consists of chain and single crochet stitches. The next row is where the shell is made by working a double crochet in the same stitch five times. I have included photos of the first few rows to help with understanding the pattern. Additionally, there are video tutorials for both left and right hand crocheters. Lastly, there is a chart detailing the row being worked and number of shell stitches per row.

It takes seconds to drape the wrap around your shoulders and you are off looking so stylish. Add a beautiful brooch for another decorative and timeless look.
