Retro Crochet Wrap Shawl Pattern in a Lacy Shell Stitch

As promised last week, I’m working on getting more and more of my vintage knitting & crochet pattern collection digitized for this site. I have a wonderful set of 6 capes & ponchos originally put out by Coats & Clark in the 70’s – some of which look just as trendy today as they did over 40 years ago (isn’t weird how that works?!). I’m sharing this shawl from the collection free here – but there are actually SIX styles that came with the original pattern! You can grab them all and download them instantly from my Etsy shop. And here’s a preview of all six – 3 are knit, 3 are crochet:
