If You Love Easy Patterns You’ll Love This Simple Granny Shawl!
I designed this shawl because I love classic, but modern looking pieces like this crochet wrap I recently created. Also, simple and easy designs are kind of my thing! 😉 If you love simple crochet patterns then I am pretty sure you’re going to like this one.
The Basic Stitches of a Crochet Shawl
For the entire shawl, you’ll need to know two basic crochet stitches, which is an excellent thing for those of us who LOVE quick & easy patterns! (Yep like I said before that’s me!)
The two stitches you’ll need to have an understanding of are the double crochet and the chain stitch both of which are easy to learn!
The Stitch Chart for a Granny Shawl
I created a free stitch chart for this pattern for those that may want one as a companion to the written design. Plus, sometimes just seeing the stitches written out helps to get the design completed.
This one shows the first four rows of the pattern, and if you scroll down you will find the details on the remaining rows! I hope this crochet stitch chart is useful for you!
The Yarn That’s Perfect for a Crochet Granny Shawl
For this crochet shawl, I used Touch of Alpaca Yarn from Lion Brand. It is a 90% acrylic yarn & 10% Alpaca fiber hence the name touch of alpaca! This yarn is warm, incredibly soft, and the best part is that it is hypoallergenic!
Once you work this up, you will see just how amazing it is and how the fiber drapes beautifully! PS: Taupe is the first color listed and is what I used for this granny shawl!
PSST: If you’d like to make a lightweight shawl you can try the Summer Nights Shawl which is perfect for warmer weather and climates.
