Crochet Shawl

I’ve been longing for making a shawl for myself, and fell in love with this one when I first saw it. I couldn’t find the yarn the pattern asks for at Michael’s, and ended up buying it online. I was not sure if I could really make it when I bought the yarns online, but here it is and I did it:

Crochet Throw

I always want to crochet a blanket to snuggle in when watching tv on the couch (for years), but also have been looking for a pattern that I can use up the Bernat baby yarn I bought while it was on sale, and here we go….
