How to Make an Easy Crochet Shawl for Beginners

Baby it’s cold outside… and you need this fast and easy crochet shawl to keep you cozy! This rectangle shawl is absolutely beginner friendly, only using double crochet stitches, which also makes it quick to work up! To make this easy crochet shawl we will be using Caron Colorama O’go which is really the main attraction for this shawl. The colors work up so beautifully and I couldn’t be happier with the design.

This free crochet pattern is included in my 12 Days of Crochet Christmas roundup! If you’re looking for more quick, crochet gift ideas for the holidays, be sure to check out the other 11 patterns here.
