The Cecilia Shawl is light and airy and fun! It’s perfect to cover up with on a cool night or even use as a cute triangle scarf! Lion Brand Ombre Life yarn is used in the photos below to make a gorgeous gradient shawl!
The Cecilia Shawl is a beginner level crochet pattern. The repetitive stitch pattern makes it quick and fun to work up! Use sport weight yarn for a wonderful drape, or use DKfor a warmer shawl!
