A simple 10-row repeat is the featured stitch pattern in the Pixie Shawlette - it shows off the yarn so beautifully! I went with the neutral toned Stonehenge colorway, but Red Heart Croquette comes in a bunch of gorgeous colors to choose from, each of which will give a different look. And with just one skein per shawlette, you can try them all!
The Pixie Shawlette is a "shawlette" size, as you can see in the schematic below. I love this size for a light spring/summer accessory, and the fingering weight yarn is perfect for this too - plus it kept it as a one skein pattern! But if you prefer a bigger shawl, that's no problem at all - just see the Notes below and pick up an extra ball or two of Red Heart Croquette!

Helpful Links & Tutorials:
CSDC/dc2tog - Make a CSDC in the first st but stop with 2 loops left on the hook, insert hook in next st, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 loops, yo and pull through all remaining loops on hook.
This pattern can be made as large as desired by adding more 10-row repeats (Rows 4-13). This will require additional yarn, and the stitch count will always be the number of the row +2.
If you prefer not to use the CSDC stitch, you can substitute a ch 3 or whatever dc substitute you prefer.
This pattern begins with a magic circle, but do NOT close the magic circle after Row 1 - insert 1 or 2 stitch markers to hold it open to be worked into for the edging.
