Alera Shawl, a Free Crochet Shawl Pattern and CAL, Part 1

Crochet shawl pattern free from Banana Moon Studio! This pattern is part of a crochet along for 2021!

It’s time to begin the Codex Alera CAL! Today we begin the shawl with the double crochet section. This will be both the easiest, and longest section of the shawl. I’ll share the written pattern below as well as a video to demonstrate the stitches needed for this section.

A few reminders…

First, if you would like the PDF of the pattern you can find that on both Ravelry and Etsy.

Remember to join my Facebook group for the discussion. You’ll find that here.

Make sure you have the book because you need to start it today! I suggest the audio book so you can listen while you crochet.
