I am crazy about wraps and shawls. This one is no exception. The striped look of this "Autumn Shawl" gives it a little bit more of a sophisticated look. Really, just feel free to use ANY color combination to suit your taste. I would like to see this in shades of navy to violet to lilac. Another win!

Is there a video for this pattern. Don't quite get the "pulling long loop two rows below"? I'm sure I'd get it once I could see it on video. Looks like a nice pattern for Fall. Thanks, Judie

Hi Judie, Unfortunately we don't have a video for this particular project. We do, however, have a ton of other great crochet videos on our YouTube channel (just search FaveCraftsVideo). Also, be sure to check out AllFreeCrochet on YouTube for more patterns. Thanks!

I got lost on #5 pulling loop, can you explain this

Do you have to use Bernat yarn? That is kind of out of my price range and Red Heart or TLC does the same thing for less money. I have a STASH of many kinds, but those are the two that I use most frequently.

Hey readers! Sounds like there's been some confusion about this pattern. Just wanted to let you know that it's been updated now so you should be good to go! If you come upon another pattern that needs updating, please bring it to our attention by posting a link on our facebook wall ( and let us know what's wrong. We'll do our best to fix it ASAP! Thanks again! :)

all even rows you use row 2 instructions and Odd rows use row use the numbers as indicated.

2nd row reads 2nd row and alt rows meaning row 2, 4, 6

I am wondering also about row numbering; I see there has been no answer yet? why is there no 4 & 6?

I am curious about the row numbers. They read 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 8. Is this really just supposed to be the first six (6) rows? Thank you.

For Cullyann: RS = right side, WS = wrong side, hdc - half double crochet, sl stitch = slip stitch. To do a half double crochet, yarn over and go into next stitch and pull yarn through ( 3 stitches on hook, then yo and pull through all 3 stitches. To do a slip stitch - put hook through next stitch, yarn over and pull through the one stitch on hook. Hope this helps you.

cullyann: To the top left of the screen, go to: CATEGORIES>Crochet>Beginner Crochet. Under Beginner Crochet you should be able to find what you are looking for.

Like the looks of this pattern but, pitures would have been helpful in understanding it

Thank you gorgeous

This is a wonderful shawl, but I'm a newbie and I don't understand the RS, WS, hdc, sl stitch. Is there a place on your site where I can get the 'how to's' and the meaning of these abbreviations? Thanks, Colleen Weikel
