My favorite Valentine’s Day pattern

Here is a cute pattern for a lovely heart lace shawl that looks intricate but is really quite easy to make.  The pattern is Sweet Heart Shawl from Girlie’s Crochet and, although written for #3 crochet thread, will work for any size yarn as long as you change the hook size to match.  I used a silk, rayon, and cotton blend yarn from Estelle called Sakura that I had in my stash just waiting for something special to make with it.  It is a worsted weight yarn so I used a size I/9 (5.5mm) hook for it.  I only had 2 skeins so I went to the 9 hearts across before doing the border, but since I was using a larger hook and yarn it still made a decent shawl size. 

I had just enough yarn left over to make a flower which I added a large button to the back of so I could use it hold the two sides together by putting the button through the mesh.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
