Honey, Honey Shawlette


I just release a new crochet pattern called Honey, Honey Shawlette.  The pattern can be found here Honey, Honey Pattern.  Until the end of March, there is a 50% off coupon code that can be found in this Ravelry thread Shalimarch coupon code.  Note:  to get the discount, you must purchase the pattern in my Ravelry store, not my Etsy store.

This shawlette works beautifully gathered around the neck as a scarf, or thrown over  shoulders as a light shawl. This is a quick one skein project with optional beading. The body is an easy-to-remember two row repeat, and the shape is a half hexagon.  There are easy instructions for increasing the shawlette to full shawl size, but additional yarn would be needed. Included are written instructions and helpful charts.  It's rated intermediate and uses US terminology.


Yarn: Fingering weight yarn—450 yards 
Recommended yarns: Shalimar Zoe Sock fingering weight yarn in Curry, or color of your choice.
Size after blocking: 55” wingspan and 20” deep down center of back.
Optional beading: approximately 300 #6 glass beads with holes large enough to pull your yarn through with a small steel crochet hook.
Hooks: 4.5mm (#7) crochet hook, or one that gives the desired fabric. (Opt.) Steel hook small enough to pull yarn through beads.
