Hey Dearies! So, here is another top 10 list, but for shawls! Since spring/summer is the perfect time to wear these, and since most of us are stuck at home with nothing to do, these are something you want to make.
Shawls can be used for fashion or something that can keep you warm, especially if you decide to go to the ocean or coast and don’t necessarily need or want to put on a sweatshirt.
One of the best things that I just love about these shawls is that they are perfect for using yarn cakes, which are a type of yarn that is in a ‘cake’ shape that is in different colors. Which turn out beautiful!
Note: These are not my patterns, all rights go out to their original creators. I will leave links to the patterns.
1. In The Garden Shawl
This shawl is perfect for enjoying your garden views or taking a hike in the forest. The design is open but very beautiful. This shawl isn’t using a ‘cake’ yarn, but if you have extra yarn laying around, I would use it to make one of these.

2. Triangle Shawl
I just love the ‘cake’ yarn that they used for this shawl, especially when the greens slowly turn into pink. In this showing, of a shawl, it shows that you don’t have to wear it as a wrap, but you can wear it as a sort of scarf.

3. The Earth Shawl
One of the thicker looking shawls, however, more simple to create, perfect for a starter shawl. I also just love the colors, although when I saw that this shawl was called an ‘Earth’ shawl, I was surprised to see that they didn’t choose more of the green colors.

4. Cara Shawl
A more inclosed shawl, perfect for those chilly nights to hang around the campfire. This is more of a solid color, which is perfect if you are looking to make a simple shawl. It would also make a wonderful gift to grandmothers, as well.

5. Mahogany Shawl
This flower shawl is amazing! I just love the pattern and the color that they choose. Plus, the deep purple that they used, makes seeing the flowers easier and in more detail. Making this to go with a simple white dress, would look perfect together.

9. Primrose and Proper Triangle Shawl
Another thicker shawl that would be perfect for those chilly days that we get in between spring and summer. I also love the tassel idea, but if you have cat, watch out because they will think you made the shawl not just for yourself, but for them as well. This is also another design that is simple and perfect for beginners when it comes to making shawls.
10. Bottom Up Shawl
Last, but not least, this shawl is one of my favorites, when it comes to the pattern and the ‘cake’ yarn that they chose for this project. Not only is the pattern look simple, but it looks like if you cut the solid granny square in half. You can also use this shawl to make it into a scarf, as well.
