This is a very basic granny stitch style shawl with a slightly scalloped side edge that cascades into a gentle point.
Simple and lightweight it has been constructed in cotton yarn. This shawl will be a perfect accent piece to a spring, summer, or fall evening out.
I personally crocheted this version in solid black because I am intending to wear it to my Gramps’ funeral. He died on January 12th at the age of 90 years. This was the first item I felt inspired to crochet following his death and it did indeed bring comfort to me while I was making it and thinking of him and my Nana.
I hope you try this pattern and I would love to see what beautiful colours you choose to use for your Comfort Shawl – I will be adding this pattern to Ravelry this week. If you would like to favourite it, and/or add it to your queue I would love to see your finished pictures!
