Sea Shell Wrap

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


8 sts + 4 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in dc.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Sea Shell Wrap Reviewed by Michelle Waite on 2015-07-01 *****
When I saw the lime yarn in the clearance bin I had to have and bought enough to make a shawl. My shawl didn't come out as loose as the picture, but I love it anyway. I used an N hook and added another section. I used the edging on the lower edge, but not around the neck edge. On the neck edge I used single crochet.
