Mostly, I want to share this free pattern with you in case anyone is ever in need of a quick shawl. Shawls are excellent gifts in times of sudden emergency; I made more than 80 of these shawls for the sick and elderly in my community in the winter of 2019. But, as fate should have it, I didn’t back up my photos at that time. When I switched phones, many of the Sugar Mountain Shawl photos were lost. What a lame situation, am I right? Luckily I do still have the youtube tutorial I made for this, which is available below, in addition to the written pattern which I will be sharing here!
Without further adeau, let’s get onto the free written pattern! I’m hoping this free shawl pattern helps you create many cuddly shawls in the future.
You Will Need:
- 1 Skein of Bernat Big Ball (highly recommended. buy it in a variated or solid color for the fastest shawl ever, with only one end to weave in at the end)
- 1 12mm Crochet hook
