The Blossom Shawl is a delicate and light crochet shawl worked using a variety of stitches to add detail, interest and give a stunning result. The shawl is worked in straight rows for main and then a subtle decrease is used towards the end of the shawl to help it drape effortlessly and make it comfy and easy to wear with any outfit.
