To celebrate the new hand-dyed colors in Valley Yarns Superwash DK, here’s a stunning lace shawl that works up satisfyingly quickly. Suitable for intermediate crocheters, the Cousteau Shawl is worked from the top down in an easily memorized two-row repeat lace stitch pattern that grows at the center back and at each front end, creating a wearable triangle shape. The construction allows you to easily adjust the length by adding or omitting rows, so you can get the dimensions that best suit your frame, your style and your mood.
