This exquisitely beautiful crochet shawl pattern can be crocheted with under 800 yards of yarn over a weekend. Inspired by the shawl worn by Jessica Simpson on the MTV show, "The Newlyweds", this shawl is an essential accessory for any season and a great way to achieve the modern, romantic look. Our newly revised and expanded directions feature a bottom-up construction so you can just stop crocheting when the shawl reaches your desired length. In addition, we show an optional border and enhanced shaping for a shorter, wider shawl.
