A comforting crochet, this shawl was designed as a gift for a friend who was going through a difficult time. Anna’s Shawl was the very first crochet pattern I ever published, and to date, it’s been my most popular. The simple yet elegant shawl works great in a variety of yarns. I have crocheted samples using both a commercial yarn option (Lion Brand Mandala) and a luxury yarn option (Bay Street Yarn) for this updated version of the pattern. This shawl works up fast using simple chains and increases to create a modern triangle shape. Make one for yourself or for a friend who may just need a little comfort in their life. This pattern is also the sister pattern to Anna’s Cowl.
