The Flora and Fauna Rectangle Lace Shawl, designed by Jennifer Dickerson of Fiber Flux, is a rectangular wrap crocheted in an all over fan stitch.  Easy stitches and gorgeous yarn work up beautifully and pretty on-trend fringe gives it a bohemian festival look.

The Flora and Fauna Shawl celebrates springtime in fabulous crochet lace and fun fringe to finish it off.  This is a perfect piece to compliment any outfit, both casual and formal alike!

ROW 1 






Weave in any ends that remain and add fringe as desired. Blocking of this shawl is highly recommended. 



Note:  Allow about a half of the skein to make the fringe.
Step 1: Pull a length long length of yarn from the ball measuring roughly from one outstretched hand to another outstretched hand and cut.  Tip: I used my fully extended arms as a measurement so I wouldn't have to measure each fringe "bundle."  This step does not have to be an exact measurement.  You will trim everything evenly at the end.  Fold in half several times until the fringe is the length and thickness you like.  If you fold less times, your fringe will be longer and thinner.  The more you fold it in half, the thicker and shorter the fringe will become.
Step 2: Grasping the top loop of the yarn bundle you just made, insert your hook and "scoop" up the yarn loop.
Step 3: Pull up on the loop until the loop is a few inches tall.
Step 4:  Send ends through the loop and pull snug.  Note:  When pulling the loop snug, pull very carefully and slowly.  If you pull too hard, it may distort the stitches of the shawl.  Repeat steps 1-4 for each fringe "bundle" across.  You can space them however you like.  For the shawl I made, I placed one in the center of each shell and also in the stitch in between each shell.  After all fringe is placed, trim carefully and evenly across to desired length.
This concludes the Flora and Fauna Rectangle Lace Shawl. If you would like to see more of Jennifer's amazing work you can Follow Fiber Flux on Google+ Facebook Twitter Pinterest
