The granny stitch is one of my all-time favorites.  It’s amazing to me how it can look so elegant.  I wanted a simple shawl in neutral colors when I started this design.  As it progressed, I was surprised at how classy it looked!  I love how that happens with crochet.  You just never know where it will take you. 😊 This is a classic granny shawl pattern that works up very quickly, and it’s super relaxing to crochet.  It’s a large shawl (65”x34”) so you have plenty of coziness to wrap up in. 😉 Enjoy!

If you’d like an ad-free, easily printable version of the pattern, you can help support my small business and purchase it for a small fee in my Etsy shop – SimpleThings byTia,  or in my Ravelry Store – Simple Things Crochet.

1.  I use a magic circle to begin the shawl.  There are tons of tutorials online for it.  If you prefer, you can ch 4 and slip stitch to join the ends of the circle.  Then just work row 1 into the circle.  Be aware that you will have a hole right at the top with this method. 

2.  Turning chains count as dc throughout.
