It is a fairly simple, classically-shaped shawl with a lacy border.
Crocheted in the round and worn folded in half, it drapes over the shoulders beautifully.
I used approximately 2200yds of laceweight alpaca (Misti Alpaca 2-ply) held doubled on a 4mm (G) hook for my version, but 1100yds of any fingering/sock weight yarn will yield a similar result.
As the shawl is worked in the round, it lends itself very easily to striping and “stash-busting”.
Gauge is not critical for this project. If you decide to use a heavier yarn for this shawl (and there is no reason why you can’t), simply go up a couple of hook sizes from recommended gauge on the ballband.
Instructions are also included for a shorter version of the shawl.
Have fun and enjoy!
