Yet another non-blue "Blue Curacao Shawl"

I simply adore the "Blue Curacao Shawl" pattern in Doris Chan's Amazing Crochet Lace. It goes relatively quickly, yet you get fabulous results. I have made several so far and I have yet to use blue yarn to make one. This is one that I started using a nice big skein of Joann Sensations Classic Rainbow and an N hook. (It's enormous!) It took a full 11 oz skein and about a fifth of a second one. The recommended hook for this yarn is a P, but even with the 9mm the stitches were pretty big. I think I'll see if I can find a 7 1/2 or 8 mm hook for this yarn in the future. (Uh-oh, might need a custom job!) Now I am making this pattern with the light weight Patons Brilliant and an H hook. I let you know how that turns out.


  1. Wow! The shawl looks so beautiful! I can't wait to see how the next one turns out.

  2. Thanks Yarnjeannie! I love your username-- it makes me hope to find a magic lamp someday so I could wish for all of the yarn in the world.

  3. I was WONDERING if these shawls would fit a plus sized woman like me, it seems it did ya find a plus sized gal for it?? Raises hand in air!!!! Great crocheting, and I adore your shawl pins!!
