Nelkin Designs Crucero Shawl PDF
Laura Nelkin's Crucero Shawl starts in the center and is worked outward in the round to create the center back. Stitches are then divided for the left and right “wings,” which are worked flat separately. Last comes a crocheted border with optional beads along the bottom edge, tying it all together. A soft, lace weight yarn like Anzula Cloud is a perfect choice for this delicate garment.
