The lacy version of the corner to corner pixel crochet technique is great for a lighter shawl. I love to crochet triangle shapes in C2C! The lacy look comes from chains in between pixels and picots.
You have instructions on video as well as a written pattern and a crochet chart. The same technique can be used for many other items like summer tops, beach wraps, table cloths and runners and scarves.

The shawl is 60 cm (24 in) high from the point to the top. Width at the top 165 cm (65 in). But you can make the shawl any size by stopping earlier or continuing to crochet more. The pattern grows automatically in a triangle shape.
The written pattern and crochet chart are after the video!
