The Mulberry Shawl is a beautiful, lofty and super soft shawl that will keep you extra toasty this season. The shawl is like having a fabulous wearable blanket and is the perfect companion to a good book. A simple but decorative stitch pattern is great for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Makes a lovely and thoughtful gift and is also a wonderful pattern for charity (see special notes below if making for charity).
