The Easy Shell Shawl Crochet Pattern is begging to be a part of your spring essentials. Will you answer the call? Crocheted with the Beachglass colorway of Caron Cotton Cakes, this openwork lightweight shell stitch shawl is the perfect stylish accessory for your spring wardrobe. The best part about the self-striping nature of yarn cakes is that you won't have any messy ends to weave in, making your finished product seamless with a store-bought look. If that’s not enough to hook you, this two row repeat crochet pattern is mindless enough to work on during your next TV binge (Game of Thrones, anyone?) night.
