Good morning! I’d like to share with you my latest shawl design! And best of all, it’s free!
For a downloadable version, download now
That being said, I am offering this shawl pattern free but I do ask, and strongly urge you to, make one shawl for charity, in exchange for this free pattern. I’d prefer if it went to a nursing home or cancer center, but any charity of your choice would make me very happy. Failing that, I’d love it if you made a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of America.
I also give any teachers out there permission to use this shawl pattern in any classroom setting, with the above provision: please ask your students to donate a finished shawl to charity. thank you!
