Crochet 2 Cake Shawl
This simple Caron Cake Shawl is a variation of the Nightberry Shawl that I crocheted last month. My friend Megan McHugh really enjoyed the stitch pattern of the Nightberry, but preferred a rectangular-shaped stole design. Megan reworked the pattern and crocheted hers using 3 balls of Bernat Pop yarn. I like crocheting with Caron Cakes and was able to make mine with only 2 Cakes. Either way, the long color repeat creates a really pretty shawl.
The rectangular shape drapes nicely around the shoulders, but also can be worn around the neck for a thick scarf for the winter. This cake shawl would also be perfect for your charity giving to comfort a loved one or as a prayer shawl.
Finished size is 22″ x 64″
