You combine a self striping cotton blend yarn with an amazing crochet lace stitch pattern and this is what you get. A lot of wow. It’s all drape-y and flow-y and softy. Yes, softy. Is too a word! It’s a crazy amount of fun to make an entire shawl and you only have two ends to weave. A beautiful thing.
