Hi all,
I just wanted to share a very quick and inexpensive shawl that I made for my aunt. The pattern was free http://www.styledbykristin.com/free-crochet-shawl-pattern-p06/ and the yarn came from Joann's for less than five bucks. It's Joann Sensations Rainbow Boucle yarn and it's huge (800 yds?). I had that yarn for almost a year and didn't know what to do with it until I came across this pattern. The pattern was extremely easy and straight forward and worked up fast. So, for any of you out there that are looking for uses for Rainbow Boucle here is one.

My mom is modelling the finished shawl isn't she lovely.

Thanks so much for posting your pictures and pointing the way to the pattern -- have been wanting to make a shawl in this shape and just been too lazy to try and figure it out myself.  Really like yours in the boucle and without the ribbon fringe.  I have a couple of those gigantic Sensations skeins, too, and though I've had an idea or two of what to do with them, they're still unused.  Apparently I was waiting for your post!

That is really pretty, and different, too!  Neither a triangle nor a rectangle like most shawls.
I've seen that yarn at Joann's but always walked past it.  That was just one skein, and it striped on its own? Or did you have several and switched colors? It looks great.

The yarn I used is called Sensations Rainbow Boucle (around 800 yards). It's a Joann's brand yarn and it usually runs between $6-$8 if you catch it on sale. I get a flayer in the mail every couple of weeks from them so I got my skein for under $5. The colors come in solid or variegated self stripes. The one I used for this shawl was black variegated. I have also seen this yarn used for serephina shawls. I may have to give that a try also.

Shocked i like that- i made a jacket using those exact colours; white grey and black for my friend. She doesnt wear many bright colours lol so shes into dark colours- this shawl would be so cool to make, and it looks awesome. Thanks for the pattern- i really love the way it turned out Cheesy
