Kathy Lashley of Elk Studios Crafted Crochet Designs designed this pretty shawl pattern that she calls Dixie Charm – A Summer Shawl. I’m changing the name a bit and calling it Dixie Alpaca Charm Shawl, because I used alpaca yarn of course! I’ve made two so far, the first one was out of our Paca Paints Yarn, a hand-painted 100% alpaca yarn, by The Alpaca Yarn Company, a color called Wisteria Way.
SC- single crochet
HDC – half double crochet
DC – double crochet
US 5.5mm (I)
Two skeins of Paca Paints Yarn
Tapestry Needle for sewing in the ends
Note: Each row increases by 8 st.
66 inches/ 167.64 cm across the top, and 31 inches/78.74 cm long from neck to point of triangle

For the second shawl, I used three different yarns, one our Swizzle Alpaca Yarn, color Plum Perfection, our Astral Yarn, color Libra, and our Classic Baby Alpaca Yarn , color called White House. I’ll list the order of yarn colors I used in my next post, or just alternate as you wish. The White House has the least amount of yardage, so save that one for single rows.
Both alpaca shawls are available to purchase, just click one of the images.
