This crochet shawl is started at the bottom tip, so it is easy to crochet to any size. And that means you can basically use any type of yarn or crochet hook.
I used a new yarn (new to me at least), Loops & Threads Woolike. It’s a super fine (1) yarn and drapes really well.
Skill Level: Easy
Yarn: Woolike Yarn by Loops & Threads – Two 3.5oz balls – (or any super fine (1) or soft yarn.)
Crochet Hook: G 4.0mm (or any hook suitable for yarn)
Gauge: 2″ over 10 sts; however, gauge is not important.
Finished Size: Can crochet to any size.

Special Stitch Instructions:
Bead St: Insert hk into indicated st, yo and pull through, (yo and pull through one lp on hk) twice, yo and pull through both lps on hk. When you work into the next stitch make sure the bobble is facing the right side.
The tip tends to want to curl up a bit. To prevent that keep your chains and stitches loose at the beginning. A different hook might also do it for you.
Row 1 (WS): 3 sc in 2nd ch from hk. Turn. (3 sts)
