As promised, here's my pattern.  I've never written out a pattern before, so I hope it makes sense.  It's a very VERY simple pattern and it works up super fast, especially with the thick Homespun.  I did mine in one evening.

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!

ok... I am trying to figure out the pattern......the shawl looks like a mesh type.... are we supposed to maybe  hdc,  ch (1 or 2)?? then hdc in the spades on the next row? ( i am so terrible at trying to explain what my brain is thinking...im sorry)    you also said....inc 2 ea row.... probably should inc at end of the rows?      I really do love your shawl!!!

I know what you mean...  The P hook is pretty big, so it leaves a lot of space between stitches.  I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture, but you might be able to tell that the first few rows are a lot tighter together, then all of a sudden it switches to a "mesh."  That's from using an N hook to start with then switching to a ginormous P hook.  I'm pretty sure I didn't ch 1 after each hdc, but I'm sure that you could do that if you wanted to and it would turn out fine.  And when I was increasing mine, all I did was put 2 hdc in the first stitch and 2 hdc in the last stitch of each row.  I'm not sure if that's technically increasing, but it seemed to work.

Okay I have my yarn all picked out for my new Granny Ella shawl. I'm doing it in a varigated gray, black and slate blue yarn. It's lovely and soft. I will post pics once it is done!

Thanks again for sharing your pattern.

Hello everyone! My name is lynn and I am new here as of today! I found this site by doing a search on crocheted shawls. I just wanted to say that this shawl is one of the prettiest I have seen! And believe me I have seen alot of them!!
I printed out the pattern and will start on it tonight. I crochet for kids with cancer so this will be perfect for the little girls and teenage girls as well. Thank you so much for the pattern.  Smiley
