    Shawls that don't fall off your shoulders.

    All shawls should be designed this way instead of having to clutch them for dear life.

    Has anyone here ever crocheted a batwing or Faroese shawl?
    I am not happy if I don't have at least 3 things going on at once, so while working at my cushion covers I want to make a shawl of the above type. There are some on ravelry, but the really beautiful ones are knitted, and the beautiful crocheted ones appear to have problems in interpretation of the instructions, or at least according to some commenters there. Flaws left and right - that, or crocheters just don't know how to read patterns...anyway, it seems as if most of the designers are not professionals.

    Hello MeToo, I looked on line to see what a Batwing Shawl looked like. I only looked at one it is not something I would attempt to make crochet or knit takes too long that is why I like baby things. I have had some free patterns that had mistakes in them too.

    Hey, that is a nice looking shawl! Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction, Karen.

    EDIT: I seem unable to find the pattern.

    @Karen. Many thanx for finding me those 2 patterns. I see that over 1,000 crocheters on ravelry have tried the one by Doris Chan - 41 pages of photos. Gulp. I have some decisions to make. I want one lacy one and one thick and heavy for chilly weather. What to do, what to do.
