This yarn has been discontinued and is no longer available. I do have the yarn and started to make the shawl. I gave up on it because the yarn has a gold ribbon yarn in it that is very stiff (it is more like metallic gift wrap ribbon) and gave the shawl a cheap and unattractive look.

There is no photo. So many of All crochet projects have no photo. A waste of time.

Hi carseb, The image should be showing now - thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I don't know, I kinda think the colors are very earthy and inspired by nature. I have no doubt that the Red Heart Boutique Magical yarn is very soft, even though it may not look like it in the small featured picture. I think it is worth your time to give it a try.

This pattern is one of the ones that lost its image in the transfer to the new template. I wouldnt complain as I have run across several of these already except that it does not have a link to an outside blog where the pattern and a picture can be seen. The pattern is shown in full on here. The others contained a link to get the pattern elsewhere.

Oh! My! Word! This shawl is just stunning. AND arent the dark mysterious jewel colors just perfect for the design? Someone below complained about the pattern. I have looked at it and did not see any problems but I would really appreciate any tips or advice anyone can offer because I am definitely going to be making this for myself. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Pattern was very easy to follow and made a beautiful gift for a dear friend. I used a Caron cake which made a beautiful self striping as well.

I love this beautiful Magical Multicolored Shawl pattern. It reads very well and looks easy enough to whip up. I like the self stripping of the Boutique Magical yarn that does come in different colors to make a beautiful scarf or shawl. This one is on my to do list! Thank you so much for this free easy shawl pattern.

This looks challenging to make but I cannot figure out the colors because the picture is not so clear. Thanks for having the pattern right on the page.

OK, I see the "Magical Multicolored" part, but WHAT is that solid green piece hanging down her left arm??? Ohhh, and another thing, I see the "Easy Magic Wrap" and I keep commenting on it but never see my comments about it displayed . That is one nasty looking "shawl". It looks scratchy and stiff and definitely unattractive. Reminds me of the old potato sacks you see in old westerns. OUCH, ITCH, Uggghhh...

you need to make your photos larger so they can really be seen.

why! cant we just print the pattern instead of the whole page?

I hear you, I'm ending up with umpteen pages of stuff an two pages of pattern! I feel like a fool, like I'm missing something to print just the pattern. Guess I'll have my kids look and see if they know how to get just the pattern...

Simply click the "Print" button right under the project name and byline. Hope that helps!

I agree.

I made this thing. It was nasty to make and I swore I would never use that yarn again! OMG! I would beg you to use another yarn for this project. It should be an easy project, but not with this yarn. One star *

Magical Multicolored Shawl sounds lovely, but I am not sure how expects anyone to see it in the picture - dark shawl, clothes are dark and a dark background. You can barely see where shawl ends and clothes begin. Please help me understand Row 1 - "work 5 dc in next ch" - is that 5 dc in 1 ch? Thanks!

I'm in the process of making this and I've found that I am going to need balls of this particular yarn to make this to the size the pattern calls for I tend to stitch small too so I don't know why the sizing isn't working out In any case I also thought it was strange that the photo shows all green on one end of the shawl As I began to make it though I have found that most of the green ends up on one end I think they cheated a bit when making the one in the photo because it looks like on the main body of the shawl the rows alternate green-multicolor-green-multicolor but it just doesn't work out this way I also can't really make out any of the shiny sparkle portions of the yarn that are included in this particular yarn I think they took itRead More out for this demo shawl

Greetings. The Magical Multicolored Shawl truly is beautiful. Is the model wearing two shawls or is the green colored yarn separately stitched onto the multicolor?
