Crochet Shawls

Over the past week I have been working on crocheting a triangular shawl. I ended up getting 2 made! The are huge ~ 70 inches across and 36 inches from the neck to the bottom tip of the triangle. I am so thrilled to get both done in a week. I used my favorite yarn. It is a very soft acrylic/polyester yarn that is very cuddly and warm. This first shawl is made from an earth tone yarn that has tones of tan and other colors that remind me of a desert.

This is the second one that I made. It is made in a yarn that has shades of tan, cream and old rose with hints of purple and blue.It was interesting how I used skeins of yarn with the same dye lot numbers for this shawl, but I got the really neat striped effect in the top of the shawl. I couldn't have been more pleased at this happy mistake! I got the striped design without changing yarns! It was fun seeing that happen since it didn't occur with the skein used in the bottom portion of the shawl.
I am selling both of these shawls. We have them listed on our family website. If you are interested, feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions.

Very pretty! Crocheting is one of my passions and I made my girls some of those pullover shawls that Martha Stewart made popular a couple years ago.

Think it's time to make a new shawl :o)

Wow! Very pretty indeed! They would make great gifts. I hope they sell!
I recently found a fleece black shawl, about the same length as yours on sale at Kohl's and it was like $10 (originally $30) and it's super warm. :-)

May you have a safe and productive Sunday!

I'm enjoying reading your blog! I would love the pattern for your pretty crocheted shawl if you don't mind sharing. I make prayer shawls for my church and this one looks perfect! My e-mail is:
Thank you!
