XL Granny Winter Shawl

13.Jan.16 / Kirsten Ballering

Way, way back, I started a simple granny shawl with a couple of Stonewashed XL balls. I had a couple of skeins in various colours and I was in the mood for a quick and easy project. Nothing I should keep my focus on, because as you can see I started this on a day where chatting, crochet and drinks were abundant (The Scheepjes bloggers’ weekend!).

The project was a simple Granny Shawl, nothing too fancy but really colourful. Early one I decided to leave out the white you see in the first picture.

I had to block it two parts, it is so large! I've been using it at home, especially in the autumn when we were still wearing summer clothes but the chill was coming into our home. Lately, I realized it never had its proper reveal! Sad, so that's why today is all about the XL Granny Shawl!

Crochet pattern

If you want to make one yourself, that’s easy! All you have to do is follow the instructions for my Vintage sweet shawl until the shawl is the desired size. That’s all!


Very pretty and great way to use scraps. Great for warmer climates as I miss crocheting. April 13, 2021 00:57 - Reply

Hi Margery, if you click on the link to the Vintage Sweet Shawl under 'Crochet pattern' you'll find it! October 30, 2021 07:04 - Reply
I still can't find the pattern! It only goes so far, then stops.... October 31, 2021 00:12 - Reply
Is the pattern called Vintage Sweet Shawl, or is it XL granny square? Anyway, I've given up. October 31, 2021 00:29 - Reply
Is the the Vintage Sweet Shawl, or the Simple Granny Shawl, or the XL Granny Winter Shawl?? Can you just post a link?? October 31, 2021 00:34 - Reply
Hi Annette,

to make the XL Granny Winter shawl, you use the colours mentioned in the XL Granny Winter shawl post (the post you're posting these comments on) and follow the instructions for the vintage sweet shawl:

The pattern is the same for both shawls, for the XL Granny Winter shawl you simply don't crochet the edging and work with a different yarn in random colour stripes :) October 31, 2021 07:16 - Reply

Hi. How many rows did you do for the XL Granny Shawl? January 01, 2022 18:27 - Reply
Also, I don’t see where you added picots but it’s listed as a item in your description. Did you ever add those to your shawl? January 05, 2022 13:45 - Reply

I would have rather seen the extra large Granny shawl. It was better looking. January 11, 2022 00:40 - Reply
I have taught students at my college this pattern because this is the Best for beginners. After they finish with this pattern they become a better crocheter. Now they are ready for other patterns. April 29, 2022 19:01 - Reply
I'm very glad to hear, Gladys! Thank you for letting me know :D April 30, 2022 08:21 - Reply
How many stitches do you have at the end? I’d rather do the biggest part then decrease each side making it to a small triangle. Hoping you can help me. March 12, 2024 11:53 - Reply
oof, that's a good question! I don't have the sample anymore so I can't check it for you. But I'm not completely sure what you mean - the pattern is worked on both sides of the triangle to grow the triangle, so almost like a round-based pattern that you turn halfway. What you're describing seems like you want to make it a row-based pattern, and that would make it a different pattern. But let me know if I'm wrong! March 14, 2024 15:53 - Reply
