Boho Great Granny Comfort Shawl
"When I think about being comforted – I always think of my Nana. She really knew how to make me feel safe and cherished and loved. I decided to crochet a traditional granny stitch pattern and make it into my very own comfort shawl. Soft and warm and with a little bit of weight to it, the yarn I chose is perfect for this Comfort Shawl. This shawl can be crocheted in just a few hours – at a relaxed pace, it will probably take you 3 hours from start to finish."

Wow. This is lovely. Very elegant and chic. I've seen the pattern and it looks easy to do. I want to get my hook and yarn and start right now but I have probably 5 simultaneous projects going on. This has to wait. But it is so lovely to ignore.

I am totally into this shawl. For me, the dark gray/ charcoal color actually makes this granny shawl a little bit more modern- especially with the unexpected random beading that she added to the fringe. You gotta have fringe! I have see the Red Heart Essentials yarn at the stores. It is something new. Looks like I will be trying this, or a version of this, very soon!

Not a fan of the gray color this shawl was made with. It definitely needs a brighter, more cheerful color. I do love the added beads on the fringe, but I would add a bead or two to each one of the fringe pieces. The way this shawl is made puts a new spin on an old stitch from the seventies.
