Introducing the “Circle of Love Shawl” Crochet Pattern

Learn to Make a Circular Shawl 3 different ways.

This pattern is Awesome! Let me tell you why.

First, it is an easy 1-row repeat after the setup row. Total mindless chill crocheting!

Second, you can make this as a Full Circle, a 3/4 Circle or a Half Circle shawl. 

Third, since it is worked from the top-down (or inside to outside) you can make it as a mini shawlette or into a full giant wrap.

Lastly, you can make this with ANY yarn and ANY hook size you desire. So easy to make and beautiful to wear!
