Crochet Shawl

I don't usually do big projects like afghans or in this case, a large prayer shawl. I mostly enjoy the instant gratification of hats! My mother-in-law has this shawl and her friends wanted ones just like it. After seeing a picture, it looked easy enough to replicate. Although this one below will soon be on its way to Puerto Rico, it would be fantastic for staying cozy warm here in Colorado!

**My shawl was made by copying a photo but if you would like to make one, I found a very similar free pattern at Yarnspirations. If you prefer my larger dimensions, this may help, each of my rows has 11 of the 5DC shells and the length is 111 rows total. I used Michael's Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn, 6.5mm hook.

**I prefer to take my own blog pictures but since I didn't have a model...I was informed I HAD to give proper
photography credit to my husband Jose. Thanks Babe!!

  10. Wow, that is beautiful.
    I agree about hat, it's easy to knock one out during an evening, this shawl looks like MANY hours of work - so worth it though.
    I'd better not let my teenage son see this, he takes photo's for me when I'm desperate and will be asking for photography credits too!

    1. Thanks Julia! I worked on it on and off whenever I had a chance. I actually timed how long it took to complete each row and then added on the time for edging. I estimate it took 9-10 hours! I made two of these shawls...needless to say I don't want to look at another for a while. My teen son did my profile pictures!

  13. Beautiful shawl -- I love the scalloped edge! It is amazing that you were able to copy it from a photo. Your husband did a great job with photos. They are fabulous! Colorado is one of my very favorite places and it makes my heart sing to see those familiar snowy mountains!

  14. Beautiful. Yours is much prettier than the one on the above site. You did a beautiful job with no pattern. Such talent. Would love to make this for one of our little church ladies. Thanks for sharing your talent and how blessed you are to live in Colorado. Anyone who says they don't believe in God has never been to Colorado. Blessings from Texas.

    1. Thank you so much! I edited my post to include more information on the dimensions of my shawl. I'm sure you could edit the linked pattern to work for you. Colorado is beautiful! We've been so many places here where the views are unreal. The location where these photos were taken is actually just 10 minutes from my house! Thank you for visiting my blog!
