This is a pattern that I have had in my notebook for a while. It has been my go-to for prayer shawls and for using yarns that I want to wrap myself in (you know the feeling, right?). Like many of my free crochet patterns, this one is very flexible in regards to gauge, yarn weight and hook size.

The pattern was born from the desire to create an elegant design that showcases a specialty yarn rather than the stitch work. Generally, the rule of thumb when using hand-dyed yarns is to switch skeins every row or so to keep a consistent coloring throughout. However, the first sample was made using one entire skein before the other which gives it a completely different look. Gradient yarns and yarns that have long color changes would also work well in this pattern. I chose not to block it because I like how the ends curl (I am also a bit lazy). Although this shawl was designed a few years ago, it became quite the conversation starter when I wore it to Rhinebeck. Hence the name I love it so much that I wear it all the time and I used the detail for the header on this website.
