Groovy Granny Shawl


This was such a joy to make!  I'm kind of disappointed that it's finished.  I smiled the whole time I made her because of the colors.  I started it yesterday late morning and crocheted on it for 9 hours (I have no life).  Then I got up today and spent about three hours on the last two rows, sewing in the tails, and crocheting the border.  So it's not bad for a 12-hour shawl.

Here's all the info on it:

Free pattern:  HERE  (made 33 rows)
Hook Size:  J
Yarn:  Hobby Lobby ILTY, Vanna's, Paton's Decor, Deborah Norville Everyday (all variegated colors)
Border Neck:  1 row of (sc in ch space, ch 2) across
Border Sides:  1 row of (sc in ch space, ch 4) across both sides, then 1 row of (sc, 4 dc, sc) in each ch space across both sides.

Just beautiful, Pam. I think you should have modeled it though. It would look lovely on you. All those colors -- mmmmmmm. No wonder you smiled the entire time you were making it.

Hey Kiddo-

OK, this is my favorite of all your lastest projects. I LOVE it and LOVE all the great bright colors. So, not really your. This is a keeper forsure. Been putting 80 circles together, shopping for groceries and yes, a little cooking. On the mends. But, off to the dentist tomorrow. So, I'll probably get back in the swing Friday.

But, I had to see what you were up too and BOY oh, Boy am I glad I stopped in for a visit tonight.

STUNNING.

Absolutely love this - what gorgeous colors!

I've never been able to find a simple shawl pattern I like, and this just may be it. Thanks for sharing!

12 hours?! I have GOT to try one!.. I have never made a shawl yet.. I made a WRAP once, but gave it to the church, as a prayer shawl donation. I'm SURE I've mentioned I've ALWAYS wanted to make a shawl, and there are just so many pretty ones out there to choose from too! I love how yours came out, and the quick time it took to make it, so it would be a great pattern to start with, and I like that maybe I can use up some scrap yarns! (They're getting a little out of control again.).. Once again, beautiful work Pammy, and thanks for sharing your pattern for the edging too! ~tina
