I could sure use a pocket shawl right now, my hands are freezing. I love the blocks with alternating stitches used for this shawl. I think this will make it a fun shawl to crochet. For this pattern, you can use worsted weight acrylic yarn and a 5.5 mm crochet hook.
You can find the free crochet pattern of the Ashley Pocket Shawl on the website of Ravin Sekai Designs.
