I have been making a particular kind of shawl for the last year. I made one – completely against the directions (only I can read simple directions and proceed to do them backwards) – for myself and garnered 6 orders for more. By the third shawl I had my act together.
Then I made one for the Craftacular:
For the last two I am making before Christmas, I have changed the pattern to be straight stripes from the center top. The only problem being that it leaves a funny top in the center and I am trying to crochet a triangular design so it hangs down the back with flair. I will show how these turn out when finished.
The patterns come from DROPS and all the patterns on this site are free!
