Large Granny Square Shawl (7 squares)


  1. I'm sorry! I forgot to post pictures... and I left off the multicolor stripes too. I gave it to my mom for her birthday. Unfortunately, it's not wide enough without the stripes for her to use it as a shawl (she's really tall), but she likes it as a scarf!

  2. Hi..I love your shawl and would like to make one. Thank you for the pattern. I do have a question though, how big are the squares? Thanks for sharing!

    1. I completely spaced measuring them! (And obviously getting photos of the finished one for my mom.) I will be near my mother's house in the morning. I'll see if she "knows where it's at" (my niece decided she likes it and may have snagged it; silly toddlers) and if she can scrounge it up, I'll get back to you on it! Mine has left the building--either was given to a friend or was used in an auction.

      Of course, I could just make a new one and let y'all know...


Please be nice--"If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all."
