Named after the Queen of the fairies in Shakespeares ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’ Titania is a graceful, delicate rectangular wrap with the strength and structure to hold up through cooler months. From the Greek meaning ‘Great one’ Titania is possibly the loveliest crochet piece I feel I have ever designed. This is a crochet pattern for a crochet lace shawl. 

It's a 4ply weight shawl worked sideways from the centre out. It's suitable for an adventurous beginner but here is a list of skills needed to make this wrap: 

  • Crochet a chain
  • Double crochet (UK treble) 
  • Half double crochet (UK half treble) 
  • Slip stitch  

I chose a silk/bluefaced leicester blend as both fibres are known for their sheen, strength and drape. This shawl hangs in a way that reminds me of water and its movement.

The v stitches create a flower-like shape and run symmetrically either side of the central panel, like a reflection on still water. Feel every bit ethereal when you wear this crochet lace wrap.
An adventurous beginner can create this beautiful shawl as it requires the double crochet stitch and the half double crochet stitch. All terms are given in US terminology. If you're not sure about US and UK crochet terms, here's a handy chart.
