C2C Pocket Shawl

At the beginning of the pocket shawl trend, a friend of mine showed me a post of someone’s beautiful version. I was intrigued by it but didn’t have much experience making shawls. After making a few other shawls, I decided to try my hand at a pocket shawl. I don’t know why but having found around 8 balls of Vanna’s Choice in my stash inspired me to create a c2c shawl.

As I made this I almost quit because it looked too plain. It was all purple and I felt like it need a beautiful stitch. Well, I was very wrong. This c2c shawl is like a fantastic blanket. There aren’t any holes so there won’t be any cool air hitting you and it is so comfy that you will want to wear it all the time.

Now that I have discussed my design process, let’s talk about the yarn. As I mentioned, I used Vanna’s Choice, but it has become harder to find in stores. So let’s talk alternatives. I used a much bigger hook than this yarn called for. As a result, I wouldn’t recommend just any worsted weight yarn. You should use an average worsted weight yarn or one on the thicker side. You can try a thinner 4 weight if you would like, but some of the thicker 4 weight yarns will will still work very nicely with a bigger size hook; without making holes.

  2. repeat previous row until there is one block left, then sl st to dcs of last block.  Fasten off and Weave in your ends.

Pocket

         Start the pocket the same way as the shawl but stop at 14 blocks.  Once you complete 14 blocks, move on to the decrease section.  The pocket should have 14 blocks on all sides.  Fasten off leaving a long enough to sew 3 sides of pocket on.

Sewing Pocket on
