I finally crocheted a shawl.  Yay!  I didn't think I'd like the Homespun yarn, but it's really super soft and really warm.  I kind of made it up as I went along.  What do you think?  It's a Christmas gift for my husband's granny.


ETA: pattern

Granny Ellas Homespun Shawl

Materials:
Approx. 2 or 3 skeins Lion Brand Homespun
Size N-13 (9 mm) and P-15 (10 mm) crochet hooks

With N hook, chain 43 stitches.

Row 1:  Hdc in third chain from hook and in each chain across.  Chain 2, turn.

Row 2-4:  Hdc in each hdc across.  Chain 2, turn.

Row 5:  Switch to P hook.  Repeat row 2.

Row 6-12:  Increase each row by 2 hdc.  

Row 13:  Hdc in each hdc across.  Chain 2, turn.

Continue to work row 13 until shawl is desired length.

Last Row:  5 dc in each hdc across.  Finish off.

Button Loop:  SS into desired hdc, chain 8, ss into same hdc.  Sew button onto opposite side of loop to close shawl.  (Brooch may be used instead of button loop if desired.)

EDITED TO ADD: I found a full third skein of Homespun in my project bag, so I changed the materials list to 2 skeins, since that's apparently how many I ended up using.  Depending on the size you want to make it, you may need between 2 and 3 skeins.  You can use whatever chunky yarn you want, too!

That is absolutely the most beautiful shawl I have ever seen. The color, the stitches are perfect! Nice job!

I know you said you made it up as you went along, but any chance of a tutorial?

That is quite beautiful! I can figure how you did the middle stitchs, bu thow did you do those pretty ruffly scallop things on the bottom?

I did 5 dcs in each stitch across along the bottom to make a "shell," which turned into a ruffly row.

Thanks, everybody!  I'm sad to give it away as a Christmas gift, but I'm sure Granny will appreciate it.  I'm always sad to give away the things I make, even if I know I'd never use them (like baby blankets!).  Sad

That is so pretty.  I love the way you worked the shell/scallop edging and the closure with a broach (?) is really great.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Thanks, subloke.  I wanted to use a brooch for the closure, but Granny is 92, so I had to use a big button with a big loop so she can keep it on.  But I fortunately found a button that was pretty enough.  I'm afraid the shawl might be a bit too big for her, but it will certainly be warm and it's still light.

Jody - I'll post a pattern tomorrow!
