This jumbo rectangular shawl is perfect for snuggling under on a cold day. It’s crocheted with Valley Yarns Charlemont, a silky smooth blend of merino wool, mulberry silk, and polyamide.
The finished shawl measures 70” (178 cm) long x 13.5” (34.5 cm) wide before blocking, and is made with one skein each in Natural and Burgundy, and two skeins of Purple Passion. As you can guess from the title, the shawl is inspired by Mexican serapes, long blanket-like shawls.
You can find the Serape Shawl pattern here.
