My seniors really like shawls so I'm planning to make several in 2015.  What I enjoy about shawls is that they are generally quick projects and you can do more of them than say lapghans and such.

 

I plan to keep links here in the Original Post so they are easy to find.  And feel free to post any links you find and I will add them here.

 

I expect to begin making the shawls in January - more or less :eek and I want to find patterns or directions in the mean while.

 

Shawls are easy so come on down.... :chook :crocheting

 

Links and look-sees:

 

I just found a very pretty pattern I don't want to lose.  Cascade yarns have some lovely ideas.

I'll have to look through my to-do list. I'm sure there are some there I've intended to try. Look forward to it after the first of the year.

I should jump in and play. I have the yarn for this shawl, and just never have gotten to it.

I like the look of that one too.  What is the difference between the two that just say Peek a boo shawl PDF?  Is there any difference?

If I can come up with a charity that wants shawls, I could make a few. When I finish up my marathon Caron One Pound de-stash, I Love This Yarn is next on the chopping block, and that would make nice ones. But I'll have to see if anyone around here wants them. Otherwise, I'll just stick with the lapghans over on Boxing Day.

I have a connection in a senior's home and they love them so they will take any I can make.  You might look for such a thing near you.

 

One nice bit about shawls is that you can test drive crochet stitches without committing to a full sized (or lap-sized) ghan

I don't know what the difference may be. I bought the yarn for a different project and then decided that I didn't like how much of a color variation there was for that. So I searched for that yarn, looking for something I knew I'd like the look of... and that I'd have enough yarn for. ;)

I mentioned that I started the "Top Down Shawl" but I was busy completing a pattern so I didn't give it too much thought. 

 

I have got it going now but I found that I have to work in [2dc, ch3, 2dc] in the pivot point on full rows to keep it going correctly.

 

I also seem to have gotten lop-sided :blush  I'll fix that as i go along.

but then we don't really have to start until the new year... oook.  :)

I absolutely adore the "Perfect Pineapples"  oh wow!  but, it might be a bit hole-y for my seniors.  :c9

I am fairly new to the board and would love to join you as well. I don't know that I can do one a month or so, but I can work along with everyone. I am currently working on the Arabella pattern for my niece. I have never before done anything like this, so am real excited. I got the hat pieces done and working on the coat.

 

Sad thing is, I had to go to work this morning. LOL

Have a great day everyone.

Welcome aboard.  I think we are all planning to just do what we can.  I do other charitable stuff but I just want to push myself to make more shawls this year.  :ghug
