Here is a crochet shawl that you can make for anyone in your circle of friends. You can easily adjust the size by doing more or less repeats of the pattern rows.
It’s worked up in a split shell, also known as a double v-stitch. It’s one of my favorite stitch patterns not only because it’s pretty, but because it’s a mindless and relaxing pattern to work on.
Because I used a self-striping yarn, I decided to omit an edging. However, I did provide basic instructions on how to single crochet around. From there you can then choose any edging you like.
