My second version of ths shawl is complete!
From The Heart organization specifically requests wrap around shawls for donation to assisted living and nursing home facilities. The shawl that seems to be most popular is a free one by Susan Coes. That one is OK but I wanted more wedges.
Then I found this one by Carrie Penny. That was great except that I wanted a neckline so that the shawl set more forward on the body. I also thought that it wasn't necessary to keep increasing for the full length.
I melded what I learned from those two and created my own pattern that also happens to be pretty fast to stitch up.
I also wanted it to have a bit of a decorative edge and a single crochet neck edge for a little nroe neck stability.
I have written up the "pattern" and you can download it here.
I am not a pattern writer and it has not been tested so try it at your own risk! If you find errors please let me know and I'll fix it. Once you get going it's really simple and it's easy to make up for an missed increase on the next row so you don't have to frog much.
If you do try it out please let me know if there's anything I can do to make the pattern more understandable.
