Dreams Shawl Free Crochet Pattern

Extraordinary laceweight shawls don’t have to be limited to knitting! Change the pace with this wonderful crocheted shawl. This design may look complicated, but it’s really quite easy. I have used very easy stitches and a larger than average hook which allows for much more movement and flexibility.
