Why a crocheted lacy shawl is the perfect summer accessory
A lacy shawl is the perfect summer accessory because it adds a touch of elegance to any outfit while still being lightweight and airy. It is easy to carry around and perfect for layering. It can be worn with a variety of outfits, from casual to dressy, and it can even be used as a cover-up at the beach or pool.
A crocheted lace shawl can add a touch of femininity to your summer wardrobe. You can decide what colors to crochet your summer shawl so they match your summer vibe or event theme.
Choosing the right yarn for your shawl
The first step in creating your own crocheted lacy shawl is choosing the right yarn. When it comes to yarn, you’ll want to choose something lightweight. A yarn such a sport weight #2 or fingering weight #1 will be perfect for crocheting a lightweight lace shawl.
The fiber content of the yarn should be cotton, linen, bamboo or wool. Choosing a yarn that has a bit of sheen, like a silk blend or a bamboo blend will add to the delicate and feminine look of the shawl if that’s what you are looking for.
With this specific shawl, a smaller mm crochet hook is used with a fingering weight yarn. Because this stitch pattern uses a lot of chain stitches, a smaller hook size will keep the chain spaces looking nice and neat.

Styling your shawl with different outfits
Once you have created your own crocheted lacy shawl for summer, you’ll want to experiment with different ways to style it with different outfits. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
– Pair your shawl with a sundress and sandals for a casual summer look.
– Wear your shawl over a tank top and shorts for a bohemian vibe.
– Layer your shawl over a maxi dress for a dressy summer look.
– Use your shawl as a cover-up at the beach or pool.
– Wear your shawl as a scarf with a denim jacket and jeans for a transitional fall look.
Care instructions for your crocheted shawl
To ensure that your crocheted lacy shawl lasts for many summers to come, it’s important to take care of it properly. Here are a few care instructions to keep in mind:
– Hand wash your shawl in cool water with a mild detergent.
– Gently squeeze out excess water between 2 towels and lay flat to dry.
– Do not wring or twist the shawl, as this can damage the fibers.
– Store your shawl in a cool, dry place to prevent it from getting damaged by moisture or heat.
