Ice Crystals Capelet
This lovely ¾ circle shawl lays gracefully on the shoulders with no need for a pin to keep it in place. Crocheted from the top down, alternating solid and open rows create a striated fabric, which is finished with an intricate picot edging reminiscent of snowflakes seen under magnification. Stitch patterns are both written and charted, making this a great pattern on which to learn new skills.
