Anyone can see why pocket shawls are taking the crochet world by storm. They are cozy and warm, they are so stinking cute and the big pockets can hold everything a girl needs. Pocket shawls are also really versatile and can be worn dressed down for a casual and comfy look or dressed up for a more elegant and refined look. Seriously, they can do both and they do both really really well. See for yourself!
Crochet Shawl with Pockets
Acrylic and wool yarn make this cozy pocket shawl extra warm and snuggly. Basic single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet stitches are elevated by working some stitches in the back loops only or around the post. This creates the lovely ridges you see.
