Oatmeal Puff Shawl

From the minute I saw Fanalaine’s shawl I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind. Something about the old world charm of the pattern, Fanalaine’s yarn color choice, and the clover leaf edging she chose just seemed really lovely to me.

It took me a little while to find a yarn I wanted to commit to, and thanks to Laura Harmon at Harmony, I’m delighted with the Egypto Cotton she ordered for me. I kept crocheting once the pattern ended to make it larger (I wanted it to cover my arms, not just my shoulders), but even so, it has been a thoroughly satisfying quick crochet project. I finished it in time for my birthday yesterday and I’m over the moon with it!

I found, though, that as I was crocheting I kept thinking that the puffs motif in the pattern reminded me of Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal – in a really good, really yummy way. The puffs on the shawl had the same color, heft, and feel of the cereal. So, now I want to eat my shawl. Yummy!

    Hi – really like this Oatmeal puff shawl – however the link for the pattern isn’t exactly for the shawl you have shown – is it possible to get your exact pattern?

    I love the puff shawl pattern!! I’ve been looking for something different and pretty. I can’t seem to find the downloadable actual pattern. Also can you tell me how you cross wrapped it in front to stay. If you could send a link or actual pattern i would be in heaven. thank you so much!

    Hi Debbe,

    I used the pattern Seems Like Old Times by Michele DuNaier on Ravelry. My shawl is bigger than the pattern suggests – I just kept going because I wanted it bigger. It has stretched somewhat (I used Egyptian Cotton yarn), so if I was to do it again, I wouldn’t make it quite so big. But I still LOVE it! To wrap your shawl like in my picture, lay the shawl across your shoulders, cross the ends over your chest, then tie the ends behind your back. Good luck making your own!!
