Free Crochet Pattern...Larkspur Shawlette!


The Larkspur Shawlette is a pretty little accessory that is perfect for warmer weather when you just need a little something extra.  Using alternating rows of variegated and solid colors makes a fun piece that is interesting to work up.  A simple granny triangle construction with a pretty and simple scallop makes this piece fun for beginners and seasoned crocheters alike!
