Lacy Mohair Shawl is done!

My Lacy Mohair Shawl is done! I used 2.5 skeins of Twinkles Kid Mohair in #16 Carnation, and a G-6 (4mm) crochet hook. This shawl is light as a feather, barely weighs an ounce, perfect for a little white sun dress.

It is long enough to be tied in the front.

Or it can be draped over one shoulder.

I had to hold it up to the light so you could see the airy stitch!

The length is fingertip to fingertip.

I have noticed a lacy shawl trend, both knit and crochet. Have you made a lacy shawl? Do you have a favorite shawl pattern? I loosely followed a pattern called Seraphina.

How gorgeous!

De-lurking to say that I am becoming obsessed with lace shawls even though I would never wear one. I have some great silk lace but haven't found a pattern that I love -- may just pick a stitch pattern and wing the design!

It's lovely! Pretty color too.

This is a beautiful shawl! I haven't knitted or crocheted any lace yet. I really would like to but I'm a little intimidated. I am looking for a project for my newest spinning project of 170 yards of dk weight. Can a beginner crocheter make this shawl or is it too advanced for me?
