Byzantine Shawl
by Amy Loberg
As is often the case with a relatively simple well planned design, this shawl looks both stunning and timeless, but is not hard to crochet!
The body fabric is an easy-to-follow four row pattern repeat ... a simple increase and stitch-mirroring that runs up the center of the work. There is a handsome, straight-forward double crochet border to frame the body of the piece, and an elegant openwork edging. What makes it all work so beautifully is the combination of stitches and the proportions of the overall shawl.
Plus, it's crochet, so at least for more practiced crocheters, it's going to work up much faster than a knit fabric of similar weight.

It would be challenging to find a more beautiful yarn. With Zen Yarn Garden's amazing hand-dyed color and the nice tight twist on this light-weight single-ply yarn, it is frequently one of those yarns that folks just gravitate to in the store. When you touch this yarn you realize that there's a reason merino, cashmere, and silk are considered yummy luxury fibers. Serenity Silk Single is all three in one beautiful package.
