Review Product Received

I received some beautiful yarn in the mail from Mary Maxim at the end of March (read my Yarn Review Here!) and I started to crochet a pretty semi-circular shawl to share with you. I had a few little unplanned sicknesses and a small surgery distract me from my WIP and I finally remembered to order the extra balls I needed to finish my project – and ta da – here is my Simply Casual Small Shawl Pattern.

Beautifully soft, with a bit of weight to make it comforting to wear, The Simply Casual Small Shawl can be customized to any size easily. This is a super easy pattern and because the yarn is a cotton/acrylic mix it is not a heavy wrap to wear. The cotton makes the fabric breathable which is perfect for the summer time evenings too. Super soft and something you can use everyday (not just for special occasions) – I think you will love this finished project!  You can easily make this shawl larger by continuing in the same pattern sequence – so if you want a Simply Casual Large Shawl – just keep working in the same sequence of steps until you reach the finished size you want (or you run out of yarn!).

  1. Hi Hollie, I’m a 3X and it fits nicely around my upper body as a small shawl but if you’d like it to be longer you can continue working the pattern until it is as long as you’d like it 🙂 it will make it heavier the longer it gets though so be aware of how it feels as well as how it looks as you progress 🙂 The pattern basically repeats these 2 rows over and over but the number of times increases by 1 repeat each time. So the last 2 rows worked were:

    R21: Ch 4 and 1 tr in the first st, 1 tr in each the next 19 sts. *2 tr in the next st, 1 tr in each of the next 19 sts**. Rep from * to ** across. Turn. [168]

    R22: Ch 2 and 1 hdc in the first st, 1 hdc in each of the next 20 sts. *2 hdc in the next st, 1 hdc in each of the next 20 sts**. Rep from * to ** across. Turn. [176]

    So R23 would be a repeat of R21 but over 21 sts and R24 would be a repeat of R22 but over 22 sts…

    This can continue until forever just increasing the repeats to 23, 24 then 25, 26 as you increase the rows worked.

    Hope this helps!

  2. Hi Rollanda, Did it say what was causing the error? Was it Wordfence, Sucuri? PrintFriendly? Thanks! Rhondda

  4. Hi Lisa, You don’t finish off at the end of Row 22. Instead you continue immediately to work the edging for the shawl.

    We will now work around the outside edge of the semi-circle. Work 3 hdc in each corner, 1 hdc in the side edge (row end) of the hdc rows and 3 hdc in the side edge (row end) of the tr rows. Once you get back to the opposite end of R22 (we already worked R22 so do not rework it with a second row of hdc) finish off and weave in your ends.

    Hope this helps, Rhondda

  5. I love this shawl, but Mary Maxim doesn’t carry this yarn any longer. Can you please recommend a comparable yarn that is easy to find — perhaps something carried by Michaels, JoAnns, AC Moore, etc. Thanks!

  6. Hi Friend

  7. Hi I don’t have copy/paste disabled on my site so you should have no issues copy/pasting. I also offer the printfriendly option which can create and send an email pdf copy directly to you for free. There is a button at the top and bottom of every post. All the best, Rhondda

  8. wish there was a way to copy/paste the pattern since I don’t have a printer and the library won’t allow to connect. Sorry about the caps, this computer is stuck.

  9. Hi Patricia, for Each row we increase by 8 stitches (this means we work 2 stitches in a stitch eight times in a row and the rest of the stitches we work 1 stitch). we also count the initial ch 2 and ch 4 as stitches (the first stitch of the row) so when you work the next st it is placed in the base of the initial stitch to make the first 2 stitches for the row. if you are short stitches you may have missed a couple of the ones where you need to place 2 stitches in a stitch. or missed putting the second stitch in the base of the ch 2 or ch 4 at the beginning of the rows? I’m thinking that might be where the issue is…if you check the beginning of each row see if you have a ch 2 (or ch 4) plus one more stitch in the first stitch. There should be both. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  10. Hi! I have a question about the pattern. On row 17 when i finished the row i counted my stitches several times and came up shoRt 2. On row 20 i was short 1 and on row 21 i came up short 3. I am waiting on More yarn to make it larger. Help!! Each row i have counted several times. Thank you.

  12. Hi,
