Aurelie is a triangular crocheted shawl worked in a beautiful and simple shell stitch. The "spine" of the shawl is a shell motif that is reminiscent of a butterfly. This shawl can be worked in many different gauges. Blocking is essential to open up the delicate shells and to help the butterflies spread their wings. Aurelie is feminine and whimsical, honoring the rich tradition of crocheted lace shawls, but is easily modernized through color choice and style of wrapping.
