Try Comfort Crochet Make a Flowers Shawl

Try Comfort Crochet Make a Flowers Shawl

A dear blogger friend has gotten me hooked on crocheted shawls. I never thought I was a shawl person, but I find myself reaching for one quite often. Just a little something to throw around my shoulders, when I want to retire to my bed and sit back cushioned with tons of pillows, to quietly watch a Jane Austen movie. I love them all, all British Dramas. Perhaps I lived in another time, because I am always drawn back to the same movies over and over again.



This Flower Shawl from the Caron Website http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/ss17_flowers_shawl.html
has already left my possession. My daughter-in-law saw it and immediately fell in love with it. Off to Arkansas it went, perhaps to throw around her shoulders as she watches her favorite movies.


I made this from 5 skeins of #2715 Seashell Simply Soft. It was extremely easy and the fringe was fun to do.


If you love shawls or have never tried one, you must visit Pammy's Blog, Scotty's Place. Or if you just want a shawl and don't crochet, then visit her at her Etsy shop, where she may have a few of her gorgeous shawls for sale.

Hello,

This shawl is just stunning! I also recently finished a crochet poncho and found it a very gratifying project.

Lovely, I made this shawl also. It was just calling to me. I did mine a bit different though. Very nice job!
