Bridgette is a shallow crescent shawl designed to keep the shoulders warm during the transition seasons. Together, the textured body and lacy geometric border form a versatile accessory that can be worn with both dressy and casual outfits.
Bridgette was designed in Comfy Fingering Weight, a lightweight cotton-acrylic blend that is squishy soft, yet sturdy enough for everyday wear.
To crochet the Bridgette Shawl, you need to know the following:
- the basic stitches (ch, sc, sl st, hdc, dc, tr)
- basic increases and decreases
- back loop only stitches
If you can do all three of those things, you can crochet this shawl! Bridgette is suited for both beginner and experienced crocheters.
The body of Bridgette is worked sideways. A varying increase/decrease rate forms the outer curved edge. The other edge remains flat throughout. A round of single crochet surrounds the body, then the border is worked along the curved edge.
