I used mercerized cotton yarn from Elann. It took 6 ot 7 50 g. skeins. This was a really easy project and awesome for summer. Never though of myself as a shawl person....until I started knitting and crocheting again.   Cheesy This one's my favorite! I've made three cuz they make good gifts.  I like the purple one (and its mine) so I'm posting pics of it.  The other ones I did were black, and then black w/ a silver strand running through it.

The pattern is from the book "stitch and bitch crochet: The Happy Hooker" by Debbie Stoller, the designer is Amie Hirtes from www.nexstitch.com
Hope that helps  Grin

Thanx fer the feedback.  HH is one book w/ crochet patterns that I've actually tackled easily-more than one or two!  The projects are so well-designed, I love 'em. I had just re-learned crochet after a LOOONg hiatas, and the sweet pea shawl was one of the 1st projects I did. 

It looks way more complicated than it really is, and I have made it in mercerized cotton, regular cotton, then Caron SS, they all turned out great. One of the versions I made was a little smaller- I guess I just chained less at the start, and did less shells, then just followed the patt. on down- but that even worked well too, so its a versatile pattern and fun 2 do cuz each row gets shorter and shorter, so you end up telling yourself  "ok, just one more row..." next thing you know, its almost done!
