How to Crochet The Big -no sew- Granny Shawl!



My big Granny Shawl an easy crochet scarf is a free pattern here on the blog! Scroll on down for the free pattern!


Weather is just turning colder and since I love scarves its time to drag out my collection of wraps and shawls. This is one  of the shawls I love to wear when I am lounging on my sofa.
If you are new to crocheting, you are going to find this pattern easy, no sewing is required and you can make it to add it to your winter wardrobe.
There are several ways to wear this long scarf, just pass your arms through the armholes and drape it around your neck.




You can wrap one end around your neck and throw the other  end over your shoulder.
 Scarves are incredibly versatile  there's really no wrong way to wear them.

PATTERN DESCRIPTION



This pattern starts with an initial chain which is the length of shawl.



I divide the pattern in A,B,C,D,E sections

A: it is a part with hdc

B: it is a granny part
C: It is the central hdc part where we create the armholes
D: It’s a granny part similar to first
E: it is the last  hdc part
End of work: edging across two edges of the length

Note: you can chain less for a shorter shawl or more for a longer shawl, just make the number of hdc a multiple of 3+1 so we can work the granny pattern with clusters.


For a shorter shawl

chain 128 , you work 127hdc

Chain125, you work 124hdc

Chain122, you work 121hdc

Chain 119, you work 118 hdc



For a longer shawl
Chain 134,you  work 133 hdc
Chain137, you work  136hdc
