Mountain Sunset Shawl… Simple and Free Pattern

Mountain Sunset Shawl

Easy and Quick – Free Crochet Pattern! The Mountain Sunset Shawl is made using a simple stitch pattern that works up beautifully with a self striping yarn.  A fun edging makes this feminine and fashionable.  This was inspired by the alpenglow of the beautiful mountain I live next too… Mt Shasta, California USA.

I’m so excited to join my fellow designers and participate in ELK Studio’s annual Make It For Me Event!!  Each January my great friend Kathy puts on this annual event for so many of your favorite designers to show off something fun and free… So make sure to hop over every day to the Make It For Me page to see all 31 of the great designs!  This year I wanted to give you something really easy and fun to wear since you finally get to make something for yourself!!!  I hope you will make the Mountain Sunset Shawl!
