All About Crochet Lace Shawls

Before we get into the lace shawl patterns, let’s talk about them for a second.

How is lace made?

In crocheting, lace is made by combining stitches in different patterns to form an open look, usually with holes. This is commonly done by using LOTS of chain stitches!

Of course, the chains are always separated by other stitches like double or single crochet, but overall chains are pretty essential for lace!

What yarn should I use for lace shawl?

One common misconception about crocheting lace is that you have to use lace weight yarn (a very thin, fine type of yarn).

But, this is not true! While some lace shawls ARE made from lace yarn, not all of them are.

I’ve even made lace shawls and other lacy items from DK (#3) or worsted (#4) weight yarn!

When choosing a yarn for your shawl, always refer to the pattern’s recommendation of course.

But I’m just sharing this so you know that there are many different ways to achieve a lacy item!

How difficult are lace shawls?

Lace crochet shawls are often easier than they look.

Like I mentioned before, lace is very often made from simple stitches—chains, sc, dc. So although it looks intricate, it is often very easy to recreate.

Of course, you should always check the difficulty listed in the pattern you choose before getting started.

If you’re new to lace, feel free to try these 4 types of lace for beginners before doing a larger project!
