2 Sweet Pea Shawls Done!!

Recommended Posts

I have a friend going on a cruise next week and she wanted a shawl. She also crochets, but didn't have time to make one, so I surprised her with a Sweet Pea Shawl. When I got done with hers, I looked across the room and there was a cone of cotton sitting there screaming at me to make it into a shawl. So I made myself another one.

Here they are:

Thank you both for the kind words.

She hasn't been crocheting very long and can't read patterns yet, so she would have never been able to crochet a lacy-type shawl in time.

Luckily it ended up the exact size she wanted.

Beautiful! I've been wanting to make that pattern. Did you alter the pattern any? The cotton one seems nice and big (what I need).

Thank You.

 

I didn't alter the pattern on them. I did use a bigger hook on mine (the cotton one). I wanted mine longer. That is not me modeling it....it is a friend. She is 5 feet tall.
