I’ve searched far and wide for a shawl pattern that is fast, pretty, and uses minimal yarn. I learned how to do the corner to corner (c2c) stitch from Youtube. The Crochet Corner To Corner Afghan Project video tutorial from The Crochet Crowd. I used c2c for some lovies in the past few months and realized how incredibly fast this stitch worked up. Of course I hit Walmart up for the black Friday yarn sale and got a few giant skeins of Red Heart With Love (370 yards). My grandmother’s birthday is coming up and I had just purchased a jumbo hook. The results were wonderful! I finished this up in three hours. This is a great gift for any occasion but this luscious red would be wonderful for Valentine’s Day!
You can use a shawl pin, button, ribbon, or lace for closure if you’d like!
