Don’t let the name fool you … this Weekender Shawl Crochet Pattern isn’t just for weekends! Throw it on any time for a relaxed and stylish vibe. Best of all, the stitch pattern is fully reversible so no matter how you wrap or drape it it’s always showing it’s best side! I’m especially loving it worked up in Lion Brand Jeans yarn … don’t they make a great combination?!
