    I saw one in a quilting magazine at Walmart and would like to try to make one for a friend. It's just a long piece with pockets on both ends. It may have been in McCalls Quilt magazine, I'm not sure, I looked through so many. lol
    They would make a nice gift for the elderly, especially for someone in nursing home too.

    The Moda one is bigger than the McCall's one. The McCall's finishes to 22 x 72 with a pocket at each end. It's in the March/ April issue that's still on the rack. It's very pretty, but I think I'd rather have one in fleece. Fleece is so soft and stays in place, though the McCall's does have a velcro closure. Not a good idea, IMO. Velcro likes to grab adjacent fabrics like your sweater. I think another kind of closure like a loop and button would be better.

    You are correct. The shawl pattern is in the current McCalls magazine. I'm sure you can still purchase the mag.

    Good Luck :thumbup:

    I have made shawls for myself and friends very easily by taking fleece, which is wonderful to work with. I cut a piece approximately 6 feet by 18 inches...you can of course adjust the size to what works best for you. I then make pockets by folding over the bottom edge on both sides..very very easy and quick and I might add warm. You can finish anyway you want...blanket stich etc. You can decorate also with applique if you like...as little or much as you like.

    Also, Butterick currently has a pattern,#B5536, for a shawl and a comfy blanket. The long one is like the ones I used to make during the energy crisis in the 70's. They can be used flat or wrapped, as you need them.
