25 Free Lightweight Shawl & Wrap Patterns


Spring has sprung! Well, depending on where you live anyhow. Here in Albuquerque it’s been sunny and warm (it reached 82┬░F here a couple of days ago!).┬á The perfect weather for a lightweight shawl! I’ve tried to comprise the list with shawls and wraps that are made of lighter weight yarns, as well as ones constructed with loose stitches.

All links have been tested, however, if you should come across a dead link please let me know and I will update this list.

Happy New Year! Top 10 of 2017


HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome to another year of free patterns and crochet talk!

I wanted to write up this post yesterday, but for various reasons I just didn’t have the time. But today I am free to do what I want to do, and so here I am.

I thought that I would share with you the most clicked on patterns from over the course of 2017 here on Crochet On The Brain. As always, I’m amazed at how many hits this blog gets, and from where in the world these hits come from! There were 11, 269 views from 75 different countries!

I guess I’ll start with the least viewed pattern out of the top 10, and work my way to #1. (Just click on the photos to bring you to the pattern).

Thanks to each and every one of you who have made Crochet On The Brain the success that it is.┬á It is “just a hobby” of mine, but having so many wonderful people around the world supporting me in my endeavor gives me the encouragement needed to continue on with it. In this new year, I hope that Crochet On The Brain, as well as myself, continue to grow and evolve, and that you reap much pleasure out of everything I have, and will have, to share with you!

Thank you!!!
