Celebrate the summer sky with Blue Skies! This side-to-side shawl includes lace in both the main body and the edging and you will be creating both at once! Just a 4-row repeat makes it easy to customize and fast to crochet. The beautiful shell-based lace edging looks so complicated, but it is really so simple! Make it in all the colors you see in the summer skies. Blue Skies will be an absolute joy to make and wear.

Blue Skies was designed in Schmutzerella Yarns Dude. However, any fingering weight yarn that has a lot of drape can be used.
Techniques and Difficulty
Blue Skies incorporates the following crochet techniques:
- Basic stitches (chain, single crochet, double crochet)
Blue Skies is a side-to-side shawl that allows you to make both the main field and the edging at the same time. I love this construction type because when you finish the shawl, all you have to do is weave in ends and block. Also if you have a limited amount of yarn, you can easily see how fast the yarn is being used up and it will allow you to easily customize if you think you won’t have enough yarn to finish. (see next point)
You can adjust the width of Blue Skies by adding/subtracting a multiple of 4 increase rows and then adding/subtracting the same number of the multiple of 4 decrease rows.
