About the Lafayette Chic Crochet Shawl:
Beginner, intermediate and advanced crocheters will find something to love with this beautiful pattern. Worked up in my Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™ yarn your hands will have a great time working up this pattern.
This shawl pattern is rated for intermediate but with this crochet tutorial and Marly’s help, you will be able to make this wonderful shawl for the spring or winter. It is not too lacy but it does use a crochet lace stitch.
A great one row repeat pattern allows beginners to have confidence when they master that row, and advanced crocheters can use this as an easy TV watching pattern.
This pattern uses beginner basic skills like the chain stitch, and double crochet, and also more advanced stitches like the dc3tog (double crochet three together), and the 2dc-cl (two double crochet cluster) that are used to make up a unique crochet shell stitch.
Notice this is a basic chevron pattern that is created by working stitches into peaks and valleys with increases and decreased throughout the pattern. Because of the one row repeat throughout this pattern you are able to adjust the length to what fits you. By working a few more rows, or a few less rows you can get the perfect length for you. Just remember that changing the length will change the amount of yarn that you need for the pattern.
Don’t take my word on it, go and watch the video and make your own shawl!

Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™:
Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™ is my very own yarn line. If you haven’t heard of it before let me tell you a little about it.
This is a 100% washable Merino wool that comes in 24 wonderful colors. Each ball is 186 yards, giving you a great put up for the price.
It was always my dream to have my own yarn line and thanks to Red Heart Yarns it was a dream come true. Through this collection of colors you will be able to mix and match creating beautiful color combinations. Although this pattern only calls for one color you could grab a few and make a color block shawl vs. the standard one color shawl.
