I finished this shawl over a month ago, but it took me a while to add the fringe (that's such a tedious job), to photograph the finished shawl, and to put the pattern together.
But now it's finished! I love that feeling of accomplishment when I finish a big project!
I used Caron Simply Soft Party yarn (category 4) and a size G/6 (4.25 mm) hook. The open lace stitch with puffs works very quickly.
The gauge in this pattern is not important, so other types of yarn would work too.
The finished size of this shawl is approximately 74 inches wide and 34 inches long (not including the fringe).
I wrote a very detailed pattern and included close-up photos on how to start this shawl. I think even a beginner crocheter would be able to finish this project.
