Lotus Buds is an easy-to-crochet shawl worked from the top down. It is constructed in ray/wedges that create a generous half circle shawl that wraps around and stays in place. The body of the shawl features an easy repeat that evolves into a beautiful leaf and lace motif at the border points.
You'll need 600-650 yards of fingering/sock weight yarn and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook for this project. (Though you could make it with whatever weight of yarn you choose by changing the hook size.) Use one color or choose a second color for the border like I did. The 4 page pattern includes both written instructions plus crochet charts for the body and the lace border.
The pictured shawl was made with Miss Babs Bamboo Baby fingering weight yarn (a wool, bamboo, and nylon blend) in purple and green. The blocked size of this shawl is 54" along the neckline x 26" long x 115" along the bottom edge.
The 4 page pattern sells for $3.99. To purchase and download this pattern with a Paypal payment, please visit my pattern store on Ravelry. You can view my store page even if you are not a member of Ravelry. Enjoy!
