Delightfully Southern Shawl


"If you love wearing crescent-shaped shawls, the Delightfully Southern Shawl is for YOU! You'll need to know how to crochet the front and back post stitches but that's the hardest part! It's a totally fun project and easy and works up quicker than you probably will think. The shawl totally wraps completely around your shoulders to provide that needed warmth without the fuss of it fall off your shoulders! The edging is simple and keeps the project with a wonderful "Look Elegant, Feel Elegant" perception."

The photo provided on the directions page really shows off the edging provided on the delightfully southern shawl. I have to admit I was really interested in the design name as I am from the south. Glad I took a deeper look. I like this pattern and am excited about using the new Caron Cakes to make this.

This Delightfully Southern Shawl is very similar to the yellow bell shaped shawl I saw here this morning. The yellow bell shawl is more appropriate for the millenials and this one would look great on mom, aunt or grandma. It's color is more laid back, cool and quiet. I am inclined to make this one day.

Row 2 in this pattern is a little bit confusing. Is there a way you could edit and reword? Is there a video available? Does anyone that has actually made this have any tips?

She is using one of my new favorite yarns out on the market right now. The Caron Cakes! It is a miracle yarn that I have used to currently make (in process) a long sweater coat with a hood. I am using the "Big Cake" yarn in Toffee Brickle. In the regular Caron Cake I have made two cowl in the Cookies n' Cream and the Buttercream colorway. Then, I have made a very cute triangle scarf in the Blueberry Kiwi, I think is what it is called. One ball is all you need for most projects of that type. The sweater needed no less than three of the Big Cake. Have fun with this yarn!

I love this Delightfully Southern Shawl! The crescent shape is different but interesting at the same time. After reading the written pattern and the comments, I don't understand why people were having such a hard time on row 2? Just follow the easy directions and the repeats and it should work out great! I love the Caron Cake yarns, and have to agree with the author about the best way to keep the same color pattern with this yarn. It is easier to put in into a coffee can and pull the yarn from the outside, less knotting then from pulling from the inside of the cake. Other then that I love this yarn. I'm looking forward to making this beautiful shawl. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I just may be behind the times or just dont pay attention, but what is a crescent shawl? I like this shawl because of the front and back posts that give it a unique design. At this time, I have not used any of the variegated yarns but I am more and more interested as I look thru these designs.

In my opinion shawls are the best go to option on a chilly day, particularly if I am not sure which way the weather is going to turn. Here in Cape Town, South Africa, as the seasons move closer to winter we can easily have 4 seasons in one day and I just LOVE shawls because they are so each to add or remove when necessary. And they are elegant too! This is such a lovely pattern so I am going to add it to my ever growing collection of shawls, lol!

I love crescent shaped shawls and this one is so pretty and so easy. The pattern is so well written and easy to follow. A fun pattern I'll definitely be saving in my favourites file.
