After the major crafting overload for the holidays, I'm really looking forward to making something for myself. I was thinking that a shawl would be nice, since I'm always complaining how my shoulders are cold and my hoodies are always mysteriously in the wash. Anyway, what are your favorite shawl patterns?

I love this super easy pattern:


I've made it twice.  The first time in Woolease, but I added a some rows to make it long enough for me.  It also came out wider with the larger yarn, which was perfect for me as well.

In Microspun it's beautifully soft and drapy.  I haven't found the right person to give it to yet.  This picture doesn't do it justice.

Some one posted an easy, bottom up shawl here in one of the crochet forums that I'm working on.  It looks like a section of a granny square--very quick and easy.  I don't remember where it's posted.

The Caron Simply Shawl is very nice too, but I'm having a lot of trouble with the gauge on that one.  It'll be a gift because I'm not taking it apart again to make it wider.  LOL

The Seraphina shawl is my hands-down favorite.  The pattern looks daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's really easy.  I made mine in a brownish/greenish/purplish Homespun, about 4 skeins, with an N hook, and it's huge - like, down-to-my-knees huge.  I wear it in lieu of a blanket while I'm watching tv on the couch.  I like it because it's shaped in the shoulder, so it hugs your body and stays on better than a straight-across-the-top shawl.  Here's the pattern - http://www.angelfire.com/journal2/donisfuff/croshawl.html

Here's my shawl:
