This easy tartan crochet pocket shawl includes a video tutorial and uses only 3 stitches to create the plaid / tartan stitch; the single, double & front post treble stitches. Use my tartan stitch to create rectangular shawls, wraps, crochet blankets, afghans, throws & scarves! This shawl is super cozy as it folds softly around your neck to create an (optional) thick collar. It’s also wide, thick but still not too heavy and has deep pockets that cover your wrists to keep them toasty. The wrong side looks really pretty, too. Leave 10″ tails to create a thick tassel fringe with no extra yarn (photo tutorial included).
