Named after a loved one's favorite song, Doris Chan's versatile lace throw adds a hint of sophisticated comfort to any room. With one lovely, lacy stitch pattern and just about any yarn, you can create an array of comforts large or small. By working a basic rectangle as wide or narrow and as long or short as you desire, you can make anything from this rich throw to a quick scarf. The lace stitch is a variation of the strawberry pattern, an easy-to-remember four-row repeat, with a scalloped side edging made as you go, to minimize finishing.

So easy but so beautiful Review by Carole

My aunt no longer knits so she gave me her yarn stash (lucky me!!). I saw this throw and loved the pattern. I am fairly new to crochet but this pattern is so easy that after a few repeats I had learned it off by heart. The finished throw is beautiful and I'm very proud of it.

A lace throw has become a lace shawl. Review by Wendy

I have completed a lovely shawl with this pattern. I used a different type of wool and when I chained 145 sts it measured 1.5 metres so I crocheted happily until I had used up the 10balls of wool and hey presto - my beautiful shawl!
