Isolde Shawlette

This is one of my summer crochet projects that I enjoyed working on in between my design deadlines. It is the Isolde Shawlette by Wendy Lewis.  It appeared in Crochet! magazine - Summer 2013 issue.

In the magazine Wendy's design is actually for 2 shawls - one smaller version that I completed above and an extended version that adds more rows to make a large shawl.  I chose the smaller one since I wanted something very lightweight for summer wear.

I used Omega's Sinfonia cotton yarn in the color Coral. (I loved the Lapis Blue the pattern called for but I already have many projects in blue.) I also added beads all along the edge in each picot.  The beads add a fun touch of sparkle and help weight the edge of the shawl down to show-off its pretty shape.  I also found that it needed a pin to close it up in the front to prevent it from falling off my shoulders.
