This pattern is designed for use with 5 skeins of our Pearlescent Superwash Merino Wool Silk Worsted Weight yarn in colorway: Red Velvet Rose. Choose any colorway you like, though!
Stunning. Elegant. Sensational.
•A more advanced pattern for those comfortable with crochet. If you're familiar with following patterns, you'll be fine.
•This is a gorgeous, softly-flaring rectangular wrap for use anytime! Toss on for a fancy dinner or while curled up on the couch reading a good book.
•Fun to crochet! You won't get bored because the pattern changes as you work it. There are a total of 4 sections, each different. They start off dense and open up like blossoming flowers as you crochet, resulting in a lovely lacy look.
•You can technically stop at any point if you want a thinner shawl, so having enough yarn isn't make-or-break to this pattern.
•Ideal for solid or tonal yarns, but use any colorway that you love, even variegated.
•You'll need a size H (5.00 mm) hook. You'll want to be comfortable with single, double, double triple and triple crochets, as well as chaining and slip stitching.

You may sell the items you make using my patterns. I just ask that you link back to my shop. Thanks!
I'm an experienced knitter, and a very simple crocheter...i can't even master a sc beanie, but I was determined to overcome my crocheting fears and master it. This pattern let me do just that. Starts off nice and simple and basic and builds on that. It let me get warmed up and comfortable with a stitch before taking it to the next level. I'm proud to say I succeeded in making a gorgeous shawl that I love, all by myself without any help from mom. :)
This pattern is easy to follow if you know the stitches. I used the January birthstone fingering and another red fingering I had in my stash. It's turning out beautifully, even though the pattern calls for DK. I would recommend using yarn with some silk in it. It drapes so softly. Love the yarn at Expression Fiber Arts.
I've been experimenting with this yarn for months and finally decided on a pattern this week. Phew! Gotta say, I am so surprised that despite trying, and frogging, at least twenty patterns, I did not need to cut off a bit of the yarn. In addition to the quality that will make a garment last for my granddaughter, the Red Velvet Rose yarn is so soft that I keep stopping to squish it now that there's enough worked to grab, haha. As for the dye work, the subtle but dramatic colorway is perfect -- it dresses up or down. If there's a place to post, I'll show a pic of my beautiful, squishy shawl. btw, Hubby is very proud of HIMself -- he bought four skeins of this for me on my b'day last Feb.
The pictures tell you how beautiful the shawl is. Even more wonderful is the pattern itself. The instructions are clear and they are given in sections. You learn the two line repeat and before you get bored, you switch to a different section. Enough information is given for you to use yarn of a different weight and still maintain the right proportions. I'm working the last section now and I know I will never be afraid to use a fiber expression pattern. I always use free patterns but this one was so lovely I couldn't resist. It's worth every cent.
I followed the creation of this pattern through Expression Fiber Arts' instagram and eagerly awaited it's arrival. Although I couldn't start on the project as soon as it came out, I got the pattern. At first the pattern seems daunting and intimidating, but as I followed it, it became easier. The instructions are clear and detailed. I highly recommend making this wrap. I felt extremely accomplished when it was finished.
The title says it all. It looks like tiers of roses draped from the shoulders. I think I will do this one even if it is a crochet pattern.
The only problem I have with this pattern is that it says it takes 5 skeins of yarn. I bought the exact 5 skeins the pattern called for, looks like I will need at least 1 more to finish this pattern. If I can't get the one I need them I guess I will have to tear the whole thing out and use a smaller hook.
The first thing I love about this pattern is that it is super easy to follow. I've followed way too many patterns that leave you guessing as to what the directions actually mean, and several headaches and ripped-out stitches later, you end up with something that looks nothing like what you thought you'd be crocheting. This pattern is not like that at all! It's written very conversationally and answers my questions before they come up. And let's talk about how GORGEOUS this wrap is! It's really a stunner. And since the wrap is in four sections, working on it is never boring. Each section is easy to memorize so you can work on it while doing something else (catching up on TV shows, nodding along at a meeting, etc.), but is also a new and fun adventure. I'm definitely going to be making more of these! Thanks, Chandi!
Yarn is amazing and easy to follow directions. My husband wants me to sell it ( He was blown away with this design) but I am keeping it. Too awesome to sell.
I am a beginning knitter and although this looks as if it is going to challenge me, it was just to beautiful yo let go by. Hopefully planning on making it for my nieces. The color is rich and vibrant like they are, however, I chose to do them in different colors.
