Use Up Your Yarn Stash
I think these lightweight and lacy shawls are the perfect way to bust through that pesky yarn stash. Often, I will purchase a few of those fingering weight yarn skeins because they were beautiful with the variegated colors flowing through the skein.
As I write this, there are about 10 of these yarn cakes in my yarn stash. I will be adding to the growing number of crochet patterns for one skein of yarn soon. Who knows, you might even find your new favorite go-to pattern in the mix.

Shawls are Perfect for Any Occasion
Crochet shawls are just the perfect accessory for any special occasion. They can dress up your favorite pair of jeans for an evening out. Wear them to an even such as a wedding for just that right amount of flair. A lightweight summer shawl provides just enough covering in just the right places for a gorgeous finish. Handmade shawls are so addicting for me. It seems that quite a few people love the finished shawls too.
As I finish each one someone will find their favorite color of shawl and pattern. They are such a joy to make. The best part is that as I worked each shawl pattern, my crochet skills have improved and I have added new crochet techniques to my skills.
There have been a few other shawls that I have made that make pretty lacy prayer shawls. You can find those crochet projects on my website too.
Lets explore a few one skein projects. I am in love with all of these free crochet shawl patterns.
