I’m very glad that handmade gifts are getting more and more popular these days, especially because there is a need for more sustainable life and fight with consumerist habits. To make a comfy crochet shawl, you can use literally scraps of yarn you find in your attic. To give them new life, grab your crochet hook and research possibilities – do you want it to be a triangular shawl, long rectangular scarf or comfy cowl? Depending on what you like the most, decide and start crocheting! Easy, beginner-friendly patterns work up really fast, so you will most definitely make it before Christmas. Links to free patterns are under the pictures.
