Easy! Easy! Easy! But it looks sophisticated enough to think it took forever! I added pearl beads to my flower motifs and it looked even classier! LOVED this project!

its beautiful cant wait to make it you can use your own ideas when u make the flowers like the color

@Deb in the Land of the Waterfalls: The mesh stitch is simply a double crochet and a chain. When you repeat double crochet and chain across rows, you get a mesh fabric. Hope this helps!

I'm confused... a new crocheter... What is the mesh stitch to which you refer?

I'm a little puzzled by a couple of things. 1) When doing the edging, how many sc do you do in each mesh stitch? I tried putting one in each, but it puckers the shawl. Are you just supposed to make them really big and loose sc, or do more than one in each mesh stitch? 2) If I'm reading the directions right, you're supposed to start the edging at the upper right corner (with right side facing you) work around the entire outside of the shawl (which to me means you'll be ending where you started at the right upper corner) then, *keeping the right side facing you*, work reverse sc from left to right of the top edge. How can you work from left to right with the same side facing you if you're already in the right corner? Are the directions wrong and you're supposed to flip it to wrong side facing you, or are you supposed to start in the upper left corner?

The 2 rows of the edging are worked more loosely because the mesh stitch has a chain stitch between the double crochet stitches. The first row of the edging is loose single crochet stitches. The second row is made with "crab stitch." It is worked from right to left with the right side facing you. This stitch is worked just like a backwards single crochet. Insert your hook into the stitch to your left, yarn over hook and pull loop through stitch; yarn over hook and pull yarn through loop on hook. Repeat: insert hook into next stitch to your left, yarn over hook and pull yarn through stitch; yarn over hook and pull yarn through loop on hook. Hope this helps.

What a lovely pattern. Thank you for sharing it with us. Hugs Christine

Excellent project. I am a beginner and the shawl came out great. Doesn't take long to finish. I highlight the row that I am working on to keep my place. Great for Spring! Thanks Paula in Georgia
