Hi jandtsmom, Thanks for the headsup! The blogger moved the pattern on the site but I found it! The link above should be updated now. Thanks again! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Can this be made wider? (

Ive had occasional requests from my senior ladies for shawl or poncho projects. Ive found a few, but this pattern is one of the better ones Ive seen. One of the biggest problems for my senior ladies is the physical weight of the completed project. Using standard four-ply can be a nightmare. The author here suggests using baby weight yarn, so it might work for my students.

I like the simple, V lace pattern that will quickly add inches to the shawl. The variegated colored yarn used for crocheting adds to the charm of this shawl. It seems like a nice project that can be completed over the weekend and is a great idea for a gift.

V-stitch is one of those repetitive patterns you can work on while watching TV in the evening. Yet its amazing how such a simple pattern can be given so much life with contrasting colours and lovely, soft, baby yarn. Just remember that you will work between the V-stitches and not into the V-stitches themselves.

I love this well written and easy to follow pattern for the Simple V-Stitch Shawl. I'm in the middle of making one right now, but I'm using finger weight yarn, it's more like a # 10 string. I love the way it is turning out. So pretty and light weight that it will be great come this spring. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
