Hey y’all! I’m so excited to present to you the snapdragon shawl. This shawl is beginner friendly and simple to make, and the end result is simply gorgeous.
I love seeing your work, so share with me using the hashtag #snapdragonshawl and @leroocrochet.
This shawl was inspired by the stunning Mirage colorway I bought from wobble gobble yarns. Any brand of yarn can be used for this though, just as long as it’s a dk weight. Since you need only 700 yards for this, you can easily make it for under $10.
Gauge: isn’t important but 2 repeats of the main pattern x 8 rows is about 4”x4”
700 yards dk weight yarn
6.5mm/K crochet hook
Yarn needle for weaving in ends
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
