Stop and Stare Crochet Shawl
The beautiful design of this crocheted shawl is definitely impressive. The Stop and Stare Crochet Shawl features a classic ripple design with a light and lacy look. It's an intermediate crochet pattern to work up that can be made with practically any yarn you want, with the exception of novelty yarns. It's recommended that you use a hook a few sizes longer than your yarn recommends because this particular stitch looks best when it is worked loosely. Make this crochet shawl any size you want.

Im not a huge fan of the Ripple Stitch (think afghans from the 1970s), but this doesnt look like a Ripple project at all. Its so lacy and open that it looks more like wide Shells than actual Ripples. The light look is so appealing, and would look marvelous in any color. This project calls for a large J size hook and is based on a series of repeats so it will work up fast.

This stop and stare crochet shawl really is an attention getter. This extended ripple design is beautiful and with all the added pictures provided by the designer I am confident I can create this beautiful shawl for myself.

I agree this is one of those crochet project that will garner a lot of attention because of its beauty. This shade of yarn used here is beautiful but the designer did not indicate the brand or color. Recommendations in the directions state that the sky is the limit in your yarn selection and can easily be made in any size desired. There are a lot of great pictures so even a novice may be able to pull this intermediate design off.

I agree that you need to use a really big(ger) crochet hook. You want to keep this shawl very light and airy, and "stretchy" so it drapes nicely! It is such a pretty design that looks actually quite easy to do. I do appreciate the close-up picture of the stitches and what they look like.

I love the look of this Stop and Stare Crochet Shawl. After reading the written pattern and seeing all the pictures and watching the video, this pattern looks easy enough to do and can be used to make a few things. I like the 'fan' design it makes, depending on the yarn, this would be great for the summer for a light and lacy shawl. I've saved this one and will be making it, another great pattern to add to my must make list. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

This looks like something that I can do. I'm making a ripple baby afghan at the moment so I don't think this will be a stretch. I want something that's fairly easy to make, basically something that isn't too confusing to complete. I'm mostly a self-taught crocheter and sometimes the patterns just don't make sense. I just got a couple of new hooks that I'm eager to try, maybe this will be the right project!

I don't know if the designer's instructions are wrong or just confusing but I had to adjust the pattern. The chart at the bottom of the page is better to use. I'm working it in Caron simply soft with a size H hook and honestly I would look better with a larger hook, maybe a J. It still looks very pretty though!
