Soft Lino by Katia

Soft Lino Crochet Shawl

Linen is a wonderful fiber for many projects. It has lots of drape and is incredibly durable. In addition, linen continues to get softer the more you wear it.

This shawl is crocheted with just one ball of Soft Lino from Katia. Each skein yields approximately 820 yards of linen and is dyed to give you a long gradient from start to finish.

Soft Lino works up at a variety of stitch gauges from Lace (#0), Fingering (#1), Sport (#2), to DK (#3). Because it's linen, it's also machine washable! It's a great yarn for garments and really shines for accessories or market bags.

Buy at least one skein of Soft Lino and ask us for the FREE pattern that gives you the option of making a shawl or a scarf! (Ask for the pattern in the comments section when you check out)
