Introduction

About this Pattern


If you’re looking for an elegant finishing touch to your special occasion outfit, you’re in the right place. Our Day at the Oaks lace crochet shawl is great for weddings and special outings.

This project may challenge your pattern reading skills at first but once you get the hang of it, the repeat is a breeze. It is possible to crochet this shawl in a single day (trust us, we did it) but wouldn’t really recommend it. Take your time to enjoy the process and watch this beauty come together.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as written instructions to complete our day at the oaks lace crochet shawl from start to finish.

You will find the full pattern for free here on this page.

However, B.Hooked Insiders will have access to all B.Hooked patterns ad-free with the option to download and print PLUS weekly office hours to get the pattern support you need.

B.Hooked Insider will launch later in 2020!
