This easy going crochet shawl pattern uses colorful sock yarn that is super cheerful to crochet and wear. If that isn’t aweome enough, it folds up neatly, so it’s the perfect little crochet piece to carry everywhere. Use it as either a scarf or shawl, whenever you might need a light layer of warmth. I tend to wear shawls like this around the office- they are just the perfect weight to keep the chill of the air conditioner off while still looking stylish.
Worked up with sock yarn, a large hook and an easy to memorize pattern, you’ll be surprise at how quickly this lacy crochet shawl finishes up. Work on it over the weekend and you’ll have a new wardrobe accessory Monday morning.
