Crochet Granny Shawl

I remember making the crochet granny shawl when I was 13 years old, just about every female in my family got one whether they wanted one or not lol. The pattern has moved on a lot over the decades and is now a very modern design.

Hope you enjoy my version of it.

One thought on “Crochet Granny Shawl

    Love it! Me, too. I made so many of these in my lifetime. I’ve been on the hunt for great patterns for shawls that I make and donate. I completely forgot about this one and happily, it shows up, just like that. Thank you, now the hunt is over because this pattern can be made to look as though each one is totally different with the color variations. I actually love the granny stitch.
