This award-winning Tunisian eyelet lace pattern is original and exclusive to the DesigningVashti crochet pattern collection. (Scroll down to click on Weightless Tunisian Wrap for more information.) The fancy shrug (shoulderette) is easy to crochet in 6 sizes.
The stitch pattern uses a combination of Tunisian stitches that are familiar to those who have already ventured beyond the Tunisian Simple Stitch, such as the yarn-over, slip stitch, and twisted stitches.
After I created a stitch pattern that made me (and the yarn) happy, I imagine creating a shoulderette that would be lovely enough to wear to a wedding.
After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):
- How easy it is to crochet a fashionable shrug a.k.a. shoulderette
- How to crochet Tunisian eyelets, Tunisian slip stitches, and twisted stitches
- The power of simple blocking to transform Tunisian crochet lace
- As much as you’re ready to learn about using stitch symbols.
Note on Skill Level: There is no shaping (the edging automatically does the shaping). Pattern is written for those who are learning how to read fashion crochet patterns and so it uses fewer abbreviations than the average crochet pattern.
Liebling is designed to be close-fitting. Wearing it over smooth, thin dark clothing would help to emphasize the stitch pattern, and over bare shoulders it would express its natural spring to summer look.
For daytime or dressy casual styling, bring out the drape in the stitch pattern with a simple smooth plant-based yarn. The multiple ways that the angles can be draped on the body asymmetrically will look great over easy basics, even jeans and a t-shirt!
For evening, Liebling is striking in a dressy, shimmering yarn and worn with a little black dress.
