Kollage Yarns, “Delightful” was the perfect choice for this shawl. It had the right amount of halo to give the look of a soft hug wrapped around you. The Shimmer Shawl crochet pattern can be made with other worsted weight yarns but it will give a different look without the halo. Mix up the yarn choice to better suit the season you are planning to wear the shawl.
