This cozy shawl is perfect for cooler nights and winter days. The extended double and single crochet stitch patterns gives the fabric drape, while the merino/alpaca blended yarn makes it warm and cuddly. Size is easily adjusted from a small scarf up to a plus-sized wrap. It’s a top down shawl with no sewing involved.

I have given this pattern an intermediate rating due to the extended single, extended double, and slip stitches. They are not difficult, but they do take some attention. If you are comfortable with extended and slip stitches, this pattern will be very easy for you.

Pattern includes written instruction and helpful charts.
