The Virus Shawl by Julia Marquardt is a lovely lightweight summer crochet project. We crocheted ours out of Yumbrel a 100% combed cotton by Araucania Yarns. The shawl starts in the top center so you can just keep going until you like the size. We used approximately 450 yards and still have enough to make another shawl out what we have left over from the hank.
I like how this multicolored yarn makes up in this project, it adds more texture to the open lace work. It the perfect accent for a warm summer evening. To check out the pattern just click here. You will notice you can follow the chart or Julia Marquardt has a video link that will give you step by step instructions.
