I love the idea of shawls. I have every since I saw the movie version of Little Women with Winona Ryder and Susan Sarandon. I thought the shawl was the perfect accessory for the comfortable moments in life, the sad moments in life, the trying moments in life.

Crochet shawls are perfect for any season. They can be added on top of winter wear for warmth as well as a stylish layered look. In the hot months of the year, a shawl can be a great way to keep your bare shoulders cozy when the sun goes down.
They come in styles from casual everyday wear to elegant event fashion. Plus, shawls are always fun to crochet! They come in great shapes (circles, triangles, rectangles) and can be worked in any number of different stitch patterns to keep crafting interesting.
