Scrappy Granny Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern Review
Since November is a self-imposed scrap busting month, I have been working on a bunch of proects to make a dent in the pile of scraps I sorta just dumped on the living room floor (apologies to my husband). Shawls seem to be on my hooks (and needles) a lot lately. Stands to reason, it is definitely getting colder (and windier) outside. They are so practical, and dare I say, a bit more fashionable than a regular scarf.
The original “Scrappy Granny Shawl” pattern includes a border and an option for ties, but I opted out. Usually I wear shawls bandana-scarf style like in the picture, so I didn’t feel the ties were necessary. Another omission was fringe, mainly for practicality purposes. The last change I made was to go up a hook size to a 6.5mm for just a little extra drape. If you like symbol charts, you are in luck. Regina has provided one, so, at a glance you can see the pattern. Thank you Regina!
This shawl would look fabulous if you did stripes of different colors. Gosh, it worked up so quick, maybe I’ll start another one after Christmas – a color gradient would look smashing. Can you have too many shawls? No. Should you make another shawl? Definitely.
Regina has so generously shared this pattern as a PDF download, and you can find the pattern here:
