Leaf Lace Shawl crochet pattern by Yarn Craftee-1

The Leaf Lace shawl gives a feminine feel, and as someone who is embracing my femininity more these days I find it very comforting and lovely to drape around me.

The stitching on the Leaf Lace shawl mimics a knit version that I saw in one of my craft books; it is such a pretty lace stitch that I knew it was the perfect one when I saw it. I have also named this shawl after the knit version of the stitch- Leaf Lace.

I originally planned to release the Leaf Lace Shawl as a knit collaboration with a designer colleague. Unfortunately, our schedules could not be adjusted for the time of release, thus the release of the crochet version now. I hope she gets time to design the knit version; it would be so lovely.

Think about wearing this shawl on a cool evening, on a stroll, on a date, at church; drape it over a lovely dress and heels or flats or wear it over a nice top on loose pants or skirt. Or you could make one for a special woman in your life.

STITCH PATTERN

The stitch pattern is in multiples of 51 chains, plus 1. It uses a combination of tall and short stitch, so you will need to pay attention in the first 10-15 rows. Once you master it, you can stitch it from memory.

YARN

The Leaf Lace Crochet Shawl uses DK weight yarn, this is intentional because I needed the lightness and drape comes with using lighter yarn weights. That is not to say you cannot use a heavier yarn weight, just ensure that you block the shawl once done (even with DK yarn too).

Blocking makes a big difference. I know, I keep repeating it; maybe because I have seen the ‘magic’ blocking does, especially in accessories like shawls and wraps.

If you do not like crocheting with lighter yarn weights, you can still make this shawl with worsted weight yarn; know that it will turn out wider and longer, or tap the photo below to make the Square in a Wrap Pocket Shawl.
