The shawl has made a huge comeback in fashion, worn both traditionally and “backwards” as a triangular scarf. There are many gorgeous patterns out now…and so many of them look like they’d take ages to make! While the end result is no doubt worth it, I know that sometimes you want (or need!) a project that works up fast fast fast. So today I’ve gathered together 10 free patterns for crochet shawls that take less than 450 yards of yarn to make – great for gift giving, and perfect when you want something special to wear to that holiday party, but don’t have a lot of time to prepare!
It’s only August, but already the sunsets are earlier, the temps are dropping a little lower, and Autumn is surely on its way. Fend off the chill of overactive AC now and cool temps later with this Chevron Lace Wrap! Made with fingering weight cotton it’s a not-too-warm shawl in the fall and spring, and a warm breathable scarf in the winter.
