Gertie is an easy to make shawl with a diamond pattern of mesh stitches in the center, and triangles of double crochet on the sides. It is then bordered with more mesh stitches and a small scalloped edging. You can easily change the size by using more or less yarn, so it’s a shawl that can fit any size preference.

  1. I am always looking for “new” shawl patterns as I love to make and give them to senior centers and this is one that looks easy to take with me!
