Is Lace Yarn Too Hard for Beginner Crocheters?

If this is your first time using lace yarn, I recommend playing around with classic crochet stitches to become comfortable holding the yarn, and more importantly, keeping the height of the stitches you make consistent.

The yarn can be a little tricky at first. Take your time to get used to the smaller hook, and the thinner yarn, and maintain consistent tension. You’ll be a-ok.

Now, specifically speaking about the Bluebonnet Shawl, this pattern is perfect for the beginner, intermediate and advanced crocheter. You work the body of the shawl in single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. So there aren’t any surprises or new stitches to learn when you’re familiarizing yourself with the yarn.

But, the edging does use some different stitches but by the time you get to that point in the pattern you will be MORE THAN COMFORTABLE with the hook and yarn 🙂

Just a quick note: all instructions are written in US terms.

It's A Wrap Yarn

It's a Wrap Yarn: 50% Cotton 50% Acrylic Blend Yarn.

A Yarn Perfect for an Easy Summer Crochet Shawl

Most summer shawl patterns call for lightweight yarn. It’s hard to find anything other than traditional sock yarns, which are usually a wool nylon blend. Not ideal for a crocheted shawl to wrap around your shoulders in a room with the air conditioning on full blast (I know you know what I am talking about here!).

This is where the It’s a Wrap yarn is wonderful substitute for those patterns.

Red Heart’s, It’s a Wrap, is the perfect yarn for this or any summer shawl crochet pattern! This lightweight yarn is classified as a 1-super fine yarn. It’s made up of 50% cotton and 50% acrylic, making it an ideal choice for warm-weather projects like…oh, I don’t know…crochet summer shawls? *wink.

For those of you who haven’t been able to get your hands on It’s a Wrap take a look at the review I did when the yarn first came out. It is available on the Yarnspirations website.

    Hi Marly,
    I am currently working on the Bluebonnet Shawl but I am a bit confused, I am on Row 34 right now and nowhere near being finished with even the first color. The way it looks right now I will use way less than one cake, I am not even sure if I will make to the first color change. What am I doing wrong? I counted my stitches and they are right according to the pattern. Is the shawl really only 70 rows?
    Thanks so much for your help and all your beautiful patterns

      Thanks so much! I hope that you get to make one for yourself, and share a photo with me on Ravelry! 🙂

    I would love to make the blue bonnet shawl, but having a difficult time understanding the first 4 rows. Going on the side is confusing me. Could you make a tutorial for that. I got the pdf for free in ravelry a while ago and it doesn’t have the charts with it.Thanks so much
