The Fortune’s Shawlette pattern is an all-time favorite of the Crochet News team, and one we highly recommend you add to your crochet-to-do list. In fact, add it towards the top of your list and treat yourself by making something pretty for you.
The designer says “Fortune’s Shawlette was inspired by the ubiquitous corner to corner stitch, aka the diagonal box stitch. But of course I had to add my own twist to the idea, creating a lacier, more open, summer ready stitch pattern.”
The result is gorgeous, and just right for year round – bunch it up for warmth, stretch it out for a light as air layer on the shoulders. If you want a bigger shawl, you could try a thicker yarn, or even use the same yarn and add more rows – it’s super easy, and once you get started, it’ll fly off the hook!
