This Sweet and Simple Shawl pattern is so great for anyone who wants to start wearing or making their own shawls. I am a fairly experienced crocheter but I do like the simplicity of this. And I'll be making a few of these in different colors. As Zeemer notes this one is on the small size so with that in mind I'll buy a few extra balls of yarn and just make mine larger. I like the simple 2 row repeat on this that makes some small diamond shapes. Another great shawl to make for my collection. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet shawl pattern.

I like the color used in this Sweet and Simple Shawl - very elegant and classy. I haven't seen the pattern but the stitches used here are very appropriate for the shawl. But again, my issue here is the small size of the shawl that you have to hold the ends with your hand to secure the front part.

If you felt the color shown "does it any justice at all," why did you make it? It is not nice to down someone's colors just because you don't like them!!! cappesh!!!

This is such a lovely shawl pattern and I do not think the color shown does it any justice at all. I have just finished it using a pale blue/turquoise color and it is just beautiful! I used a pretty border to finish it off and have got so many compliments and actually have 2 orders from friends, 1 in white and the other in a soft lilac.

no patterns opening so I can see the instructions...guess i will not come here again

I like it goin to make it for my mother

I tried to make this shawl and couldn't make it because the instructions were unclear to me. How disappointed I was! I wish there was a way to get some help. : (

I made this shawl using Caron Simply Soft Light, in the Passion (magenta) color. It came out great and I get lots of compliments on it. Very easy and calming once you get the pattern going.

Perfect for a matched set of shawls for my dil and dgd! :-)

Hi, hofey 5747391. We link to the full crochet patterns on the pattern designers' sites, and therefore we have no control over how the pattern appears or what is included on the page. If you want to print the pattern, I would suggest copying and pasting it into a Word document so that you can control what gets printed. Hope this helps! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

What works really well for me is to copy and paste patterns into word or even word pad. Then download a program called dropbox. save the patterns to a file in dropbox called patterns. I have a tablet that I downloaded dropbox to also and there are my patterns on my tablet. I also have dropbox on my cell phone and can use that as well. My patterns are always with me this way!! Love technology

Please tell me again how to download just the pattern without all of the other comments etc. I waste more paper trying to get your patterns!

This would be nice in a pretty color.

Have Red Heart Soft - worsted- med-4 Question/Opinion: Will this size yarn work with this pattern "Sweet and Simple Shawl"

Two problems I've faced with this pattern. Please respond! The first is in row 2, you say "repeat 39 times", are you sure you didn't mean "29 times"? The second is in row 3, you say "chain 3, skip over the next single crochet, the next chain 1, and the next single crochet". If you look at the row 2, and follow it, it would be "chain 3, skip over the next single crochet, and the next chain 1, and the next double crochet". Please clarify this for me. I have been crocheting for many years, but I cannot follow this pattern, which makes me suspect these two errors. Thanks for your help.

Hi, i have a question about a shawl pattern. its not one of yours, however i did make this one and i loved it. now im trying something a little more challenging, and i have run into a problem. the pattern i am using calls for a Front Post double crochet and im not sure how to do it with the limited instructions they gave for it.

hi iam from india and i am a youtube fan .for your question --log on to you tube and type front post dc and search you will get a full video on how to do fpdc and bpdc have fun

Re "collar": Simple "rule of thumb". Roll top of shawl with your thumb under top edge of the shawl. It will naturally fold over and make the "collar". When top has collar, it is less likely to slide off shoulders.

The yarn used in this pattern is a light DK yarn (Patons Astra- Dark Tan). You could probably use a worsted weight but it might be a bit bulky. It looks as if she just rolled the pattern over to give the look of a collar. Thanks!

Hello. Regarding the "Sweet and Simple" shawl pattern; is there an actual rolled shawl collar in this pattern, or does the photo only make it look that way?

Is anyone receiving answers to their questions?

It won't show me the pattern.....I am a new subscriber.

Thank you for another idea for knitting & crocheting basket. This project I will use for someone maybe in a nursing home who doesn't get visitors very often and needs to know someone cares about them. Maybe when they put this around their shoulders, they can think about those wonderful memories of their lives and feel snug and warm knowing their loved. M. Davis

I'm a real beginner & would like to make this shawl. Is the yarn you used a cotton weight? Could I use worsted yarn?

This is really nice - and so adaptable that could also be made up as a blanket, table cover, cushion covers, etc
