Crochet Virus Shawl
The Crochet Virus Shawl by Julia Marquardt is one of the most famous shawls of today’s era. Luckily for you, it is a free pattern available that she offers. This pattern is the most requested pattern from our team to locate and out of courtesy of our time to continually answer this question and to this designer, we are providing a direct link to her Ravelry Page where you can find the pattern.

Out of courtesy, I have made a complimentary Playlist for these 4 on The Crochet Crowd to save you time from surfing around to find them. This tutorial is well done and will help you for those who are struggling to read the Crochet Diagram.
