Ma Ingalls Half-Granny Crocheted Shawl finally complete!

The half-granny crocheted shawl that I started recently is finally finished! I do believe Ma Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie would be pleased.

This was the perfect project to use up the leftover Bernat yarn from the Sweet Liberty afghan because it is such cozy yarn and I just love the colors.

Take a peek...


Ma Ingalls Half-Granny Crocheted ShawlI had to get pictures this morning before the sun hit the back deck and all the ladybugs started swarming again! It's that time of year here in New England!


Ma Ingalls Half-Granny Crocheted ShawlThese dining room chairs are high backed so the length of this shawl is very generous.


Ma Ingalls Half-Granny Crocheted ShawlI worked a little picot edge with the blue which consists of a single crochet in each double crochet, a single crochet in the next space, 3 chains, another single crochet in the same space. Continue that pattern all along the lower edges of the shawl. I actually ran out of blue about 10 inches from the end, so I ended the border right there. I was determined not to have even a scrap of this yarn leftover! It is still a lovely and cozy shawl without those last few inches of border.


Ma Ingalls Half-Granny Crocheted ShawlI don't think there is a nicer color combination than red, white and blue!

  • Pretty! Shawls seem to be back in style. I have my grandmother's shawl that my aunt made for her. Perhaps one day I'll wear it!

  • I love curling up on the sofa with my shawl wrapped around me. That and a hot steaming cup of tea helps take the chill out of winter!
    Your shawl turned out great and will brighten up those dreary days ahead.

  • Hi Mary Grace, I just want to say Thank You for your wonderful tutorial and that your shawl is gorgeous. I am following your pattern at the moment and hope to have it finished in a day or two as it is to be a gift for my daughter in law who is expecting our second grandchild very soon.
    May you enjoy wearing your shawl ..... I don't think it is ladybug time! Here in England we call them ladybirds :0)
