Turquoise Shawl

I used a "J" hook and a shell in shell crochet stitch.  Crochet Geek made a great video with instructions on how to do the shell stitch (and end up with a scarf!) -- click HERE.  I edged the shawl with a simple 5 double crochet shell.  I strung the coral and turquoise necklaces at a 30" and 28" lengths and loved how they looked together.  However, when I wore them, they were too heavy to be comfortable, so I need to re-string them.

That shawl is beautiful without the jewelry!

Gorgeous - this is one of the many stitches my grandmother taught me about 40 years ago, and it's my fave. I had to give up crocheting because of carpal tunnel, and I am aching to go back to it!

Beautiful crochet, Marlene. Perhaps one of your unique pins on the shawl instead of jewelry?
