Modern and Beautiful Shawl
This beginner triangle shawl pattern is easy to make smaller or larger. Simply crochet a repeat of R2 an even number of times - this will allow the edging to work for the shawl. This is crocheted in a lighter weight yarn, so the shawl is also lighter weight when you are wearing it. It is not heavy like a blanket. This simple shawl is an everyday shawl. Something you can make and wear for comfort, with your cozy pants, or just to keep the chill off when you are sitting on your back deck enjoying a cup of coffee (or glass of your favorite wine). This shawl will also work well as a Prayer Shawl or for donation purposes. I designed this slightly larger because I am larger myself (a petite 3X) and I wanted a shawl I could wear out on my back deck! My sister, Kelley, is modelling the shawl for the photos and she is much daintier and a size Small . It is an oversized shawl for her.

"Every dress needs a shawl and the Robin Crochet shawl will look lovely with any dress or outfit. This shawl uses a mock granny stitch and a stunning arcade border. I am sure you have seen a granny stitch shawl. It is a beautiful iconic crochet stitch. With the Robin crochet shawl, I wanted the lightness of the granny stitch with smaller gaps. We will use a large hook to keep the shawl light and airy as well. This modification of the granny stitch leaves a pretty lace look with a modern feel."
Life is often hard, and even the clearest skies have clouds sometimes. And as crocheters, we can make it better. One way is by making prayer or comfort shawls for those who need an extra hug, and to feel our love. The Big Sky Shawl was designed with this idea in mind - while maintaining a sense of style. The Big Sky Shawl is made with Lion Brand Homespun, a favorite yarn for those crafting for others. It's warm, soft, and the yarn creates the texture - which means simple stitches shine. And the Big Sky Shawl does indeed use simple stitches, so almost anyone can make this easy crochet prayer shawl pattern! The colors I used for the Big Sky Shawl are Montana Sky and Clouds - appropriate, no? Streaks of gray cut through the blue sky, but there is more blue than gray, to remind us of the bright times to come. The shaping creates a triangular shawl that's more V shaped than anything, with corners that wrap easily around the shoulders to stay in place. And it doesn't just help the person you give it to - it helps you too! Studies have shown time and again how crocheting improves our mental health, making this an excellent way to help others while you help yourself. You can wear the Big Sky shawl across the shoulders as a standard shawl, or wrapped around the neck with the point in front - either way, the optional tassels on the points help keep it where you put it. It's only 20 rows long (plus a couple rounds for the border), so you can whip one up in a just a few evenings.
Varying widths of off white, grey and black come together to work up this Ombre Shawl, producing a gorgeous blend of color. As the designer says, "this is definitely not your granny’s shawl! The gorgeous stitch texture and modern striping help this shawl pair just as easily with your favorite pair of jeans as it does over a little black dress, and it can be easily customized to any size you like." This shawl is perfect for summer nights, when the temperatures drop without the sun, and can easily be worn into the fall as a light layering piece. If neutral shades aren't your style, work this crochet shawl up with shades of your favorite color, or mix and match hues to create a shawl that's uniquely you.
