Ma Ingalls Shawl; Half Granny Square Crochet

I completed the shawl I started last week and I am thrilled with the results.  Boboli Lace is one of the nicest yarn lines I have ever worked with, as it is soft and lightweight in texture and creates some stunning pieces.  It is comprised of 42% wool, 35% acrylic, and 23% viscose.   The pattern used is one I found on YouTube and modeled after a shawl worn by “Caroline Ingalls” of Little House on the Prairie, and is basically “one half” of a HUGE Granny Square.  After making this shawl, I have decided to make up a few more of them for Christmas gifts, to be ready in December.  Although I made the shawl for myself, after seeing it, my mother fell in love with it, so I gave it to her.  I used her as a “model” in the photos below.  Now that it’s finished, I will start another one, for MYSELF, also made of Boboli Lace but of a different color scheme.
