Streak of Lighting Shawl - a crochet design

Introducing the shawl design I was working on that June night as the police searched my yard for fleeing suspects. I hope you like this crochet design. :)

Streak of Lightning is a top down triangle shawl to crochet. The simple two row body repeat is easy to remember and fast as lightning to crochet. I've added a beautiful border for a special touch of elegance. Here's a close up of the border.

You'll need 600-700 yards of a fingering/sock weight yarn and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook. I used less than 3 balls of Sensations Bamboo & Ewe for my red shawl. (Yarn available at Joann Fabrics & Crafts or joann.com.) The bamboo in this yarn gives my shawl a wonderful drape. My blocked shawl measures 73” x 35.”

This is a shawl pattern you can make again and again with any weight of yarn you desire. (Several of my testers made it with lace weight. Their shawls are gorgeous!) The design is also very easy to make smaller or larger.

The three page pattern includes full written instructions and a crochet chart. Print the first two pages out on the front and back of a letter sized sheet of paper and fold it into a little brochure that you can tuck into your project bag. The chart prints out on another sheet of paper.

The pattern sells for $3.00 through my Ravelry pattern store.
