I’ve always wanted to make a wrap or shawl with a Large Crochet Fan Stitch. I love the look of the large shell crocheted in a row like this. I found a crochet stitch pattern that worked great with this idea so I had to give it a try. This crochet Shell Stitch Shawl I named the Fans in a Row Lacy Shawl, I hope you like this one!

This stitch is done in multiples of 16 + 2, so you ch in multiples of 16 until you reach your desired length, then add 2 stitches.
This shawl is 55 by 27 ½ inches (140 by 70 centimeters) so if you want to make it larger or smaller then work in multiples of 16.
