Beautiful shawl, Julee! I found your blog when I was checking out "Crochetville", and saw that you had your own blog. I think it's cool you live in Bonner's Ferry, because I have some acquaintances there. =D --Amanda (18)

Julee...I just love your Angel Wing Pattern. It is so beautiful! I printed it out and can't hardly wait to crochet it. I belong to a Ministry called "For The Heart" and we crochet and knit gifts for people in need of comfort and to also let them know that they are cared about. I love what I do, it's such a good feeling inside to know I touched someone elses life. I also have 2 blogs.   "Made With Love" http://mamaswhitedove2003.blogspot.com and "Moments And Memories" http://aprilleigh1953.blogspot.com You are welcome to visit them.April

Hello J-
I love your angel wings shawl. I have been (attempting) to crochet for many years now, but only making simple things like kitchen towels and dishrags. Now that I am all grown up and a Grandma I am on to other projects...like your shawl. It is my first attempt at crocheting anything bigger than a kitchen towel. IF I ever finish I will send you a pic. Thank you for sharing this delightful pattern.
Love that Toby Keith!

your crochet friend,

See you on Ravelry!

thank you for the pattern, I love making shawls with it. I make them for a small bistro here on Saba. They are all gifted to a couple of friends who started up the cafe and asked me to make some shawls to keep the guests happy while dining al fresco in the evenings. it is so fun, no money passes between us, I get to try out all kinds of patterns and yarn and the guests are happy
thanks

This is the most beautiful shawl I believe I have ever seen. I am a nut about butterflies so of course to me is a butterfly too. Thanks so much for the pattern. I can't wait to make it. Wish I knew a little more about fixing these blogs up.

Hi Julee . I was browsing thru patterns and ran across your Angels Wings Patterns and love it. I am going to make it for a couple of friends that are going through chemo for breast cancer. nancy

Vicky said...

Thanks for the pattern!! I love angel and butterfly patterns. I make prayer shawls for the Martha Ministry group in Missoula, MT. I'm always looking for new patterns, as I get tired of doing the same old ones. Can't wait to try it on my next one!! Vicky

Diane said...

I love the concept of the angel shawl but I noticed something on the top ends. They are not identical. Is this a mistake or intentional.

Dennis said...

This is the perfect pattern for my resident in the nursing home I work in.She wears a shawl everyday, I'm doing this one in Lilac for easter. Do you think I can add ribbon flowers to it ?

Janet said...

Julee, This shawl is so beautiful. I am making it for a friend who is dealing with cancer. I wanted a shawl that would be like being wrapped in angel wings and this does it just fine.
I have had no problems with the pattern. It is well written.
And when I get it finished, I'm going to make a flower to pins on it.

Julee,
Just a note to say thanks for the free pattern… I like to do that when I come across such things from a real person. Of course a part of me knows every pattern has a creator, but names and contact info aren’t always at hand. In the interest of truth I suppose I should say I am rather compelled to send these notes, my Dear Old Sainted Mother was rather a stickler for thank you notes, and promised me a good old fashion haunting should I fail. I’m inclined to believe her, to my knowledge she only lied to me once, and that at about the age of three; she told me, strait faced, the fried green tomatoes she set before me was meat with seeds. I didn’t fall for the ploy; I was three, not stupid. John

I make shawls for my local nursing home and I am always looking for new patterns for my ladies. This pattern is beautiful and I have the perfect lady in mind for this shawl. I can't wait to get started on this pattern and I am going to do it in blue as that is her favorite color. Thank you for the pattern.

Anonymous said...

Julee, thank you so very much for this pattern. I made this, in a day, for church. I did it in a boucle yarn and it turned out absolutely gorgeous. Some of the ladies at church want me to make them one. God bless you and your wonderful patterns. Thank you again.

Wonderful pattern thank you. I have been crocheting caps/hats for sometime now but my best friend, who is taking Chemo, asked that I do a shawls because patients get cold during the treatment. So now that is my mission along with the hats.

I couldn't figure out the pattern on the third row. Otherwise, the finished project in the picture is gorgeous! Would love to be able to figure out my mistake!

Dorothy Pollak said...

This is a stunning pattern. The only problem I've had is trying to print it. I get the first page of the instructions and couple of blank pages, and a cover page, but nothing beyond row 5. Fortunately, I was able copy the balance of the instructions by hand, but I'm puzzled by the problem with printing.

Judy said...

This is a beautiful pattern. However I cannot figure out the "things" that are in the parenthesis at the end of each row of pattern directions. For example, end of row 2 (1-shell, 2-V sts, 6-ch 1 spaces {including ch 1 in V Sts}) This is definitely NOT a review of the stitches in that row. H-E-L-P!!!

Anonymous said...

I love the Angel Wings Shawl pattern, I'm also having problems with (5-ch1 spaces,6 dc). If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

Nanny B said...

I love your butterfly shawl, I would be interested in getting your permission to make a few to sell. But all the proceeds will go to my church for mission work. I will not start any until I can hear from you, though. We are not having the bazaar until the first weekend in December, but need time to work on them. Thanks, Belinda

Julee aka Jewls said...

Hi Belinda,
Thank you for asking! Selling the shawls at your bazaar is fine. Thank you again for asking.

Happy Crocheting!!

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. I am going to make this for my grandadaughter .. She is going to a father and Daughters dance. She dosen't have a Father so she is going with grandpa......thanks again

I can't get this to work either....wish I knew what I was doing wrong.

This shawl is absolutely amazing! What a wonderful creation for mission work. I would probably make a few for my family members here in Michigan after I relocate to Atlanta, for them to remember me by and keep warm in the winter months.

Thank you so much for sharing the pattern, very easy to work up, never heard of the 'shell in shell' stitch, but with your definitive within the instructions it looks very easy to work up.

God Bless,
Crystal

For those of you who have done this,about how many rows did you do?

Hey Everyone,
Not sure why there is a problem printing the pattern. Hopefully it is fixed now. If not, you can go to the link I posted and download a PDF copy that should print without a problem.

Thanks

LindaMarie said...

Hi There! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful pattern. I am so new to crocheting something...it hurts. I was anxious to crochet this shawl until I heard the ladies say they were having trouble...So I want to ask: How would you rate this pattern?? I know how to do all the stitches, it is the reading of the pattern where I get into trouble. So..would this be something like an Intermediate pattern or should a newbie attempt it ?? Thanks so much!

Julee aka Jewls said...

Hi Linda Marie,
Honestly, the pattern is pretty easy. I edited it a bit yesterday and that should help with some of the confusion but if you take time and read the pattern (and read ahead)you should be fine. If you do have a problem though you can email me at this email address: julee_reeves@yahoo.com and I will get back to you asap.
Thanks

Julee

The picture I first saw of your shawl and the instuctions posted do not add up to the picture. There are some filled in spaces on bottom front edges that there are no instuctions for. Have printed picture and hopefully will be able to figure it out. Otherwise, beautiful pattern.

Julee aka Jewls said...

The edging in the example pic here on my blog and in the pdf version on ravelry is the exact same one that the instructions are written for.

Enjoy the pattern.

philip gonzales said...

I Love this shawl. I did one for a dear friend I will be visiting in May. I did her's with simply soft yarn and K hook. I am working on a second on I would like to keep but I might give it to my sister. I am using cotton yarn with the K hook.

Thank you, this is a great pattern for a beginner, works up very fast.

Linda said...

Thank you for this pattern! It's so beautiful and looks like it'll work up fast. I've been making a "lapghan" to donate to a nursing home for a resident in need so the shawl will be something nice to donate also. Love the picture of your beautiful baby boy. He's precious!

I have just finished this pattern in white for my niece's 17th birthday. Very simple pattern, easy to follow instructions - thank you!

I made your pattern in a baby white in a size for my 7 year old Grand Daughter to wear with her First Communion Dress It came out just beautiful! Thank you. I had been looking all over for a pattern I could make for a child for this purpose and this one was perfect!

Betty Radcliffe said...

I couldn't wait to start this shawl. It's a gift for my cousin in Florida. I know she'll love it as much as I do. Thanks for the pattern and keep up the great work.

Hi JR I love this pattern I'm new to the crochet world and want to attempt to make it. I was wanting to know what size does it come out to. I guess what I'm asking is. Is this for an adult? I've only been crocheting for a year and only have made beanies and pot holders but love this pattern. I hope this is not a crazy ? . Thanks for sharing.

Julee aka Jewls said...

Hi Fran,
This is one of those patterns that you make as big as you'd like. It's really a matter of what's comfy for you.

I hope you enjoy the pattern and thanks for your comment. Happy Crocheting!!

Pat said...

I LOVE this shawl but I am such a visual learner!! Is there a tutorial for this???

AZ Karen said...

Is this a small over the shoulder shall, or does it cover pretty well. Someone mentioned they made it for a 7 year old. That makes me think it's pretty small.

Thank you so much for creating this pattern. I have made several and donated them to one of my local senior care facilites and to a cancer patient and a lady undergoing kidney dialasis. They love them and I have been getting requests for many more.

Janis said...

Thank you for your lovely pattern. I have been wanting to make a prayer shawl for some time now but this is the first I thought I would enjoy doing.

I plan on doing it with #10 cotton thread.

I know it will take longer but really believe it will be well worth the final results.

God bless

Darlene Batanian said...

Can someone suggest what kind of yarn to use? I'm making it for a friend who has cancer. That name of the shawl angel wings made me think of her. She is young (51). Please answer as soon as possible God can call at any time. Thank you for your time and God bless you all.

Hi Julee,
It is so nice to see someone else who spells their name correctly.
I am going to try your Angel Wing Pattern for the VA hospital here in Wyoming. The permanent patients like using shawls or ponchos on these cold and windy Wyoming days.

Thanks for the nice website.

Thank you for posting this pattern. It looks like one I had in the 80s for a triangle shell stitch shawl that was so easy. Somehow I lost the pattern and have been looking for it for years. I'm going to start this one tonight.

Pamela Custer said...

I made this for a Special Lady in September. Then in October she turned around and gave me two huge bags of yarn that she said she was not going to use. She also told me NOT to make her anything, but to make things for others and that would make her happy. And so I did. But when her birthday came in January, I surprised her with this Angel Wing Shawl. Previously, she was a Nun for 29 years of her life. When I showed her the diagram of the "wings" she was absolutely delighted. Thank you so much for making this pattern available to me so that she could have that much enjoyment.

linda donahue said...

I was wondering what how big this is ,it looks very small,if any one has made it and knows how big it is please post measures

linda donahue said...

dose anyone know what the measures are for this,?.It looks very small.
If anyone has made this and has the measures could you please post,
thank you,linda

Julee aka Jewls said...

Hi Linda, I'm the designer. The photo just shows the first few rounds of the shawl. You can make it as big or as small as you like. It's very customizable. :-)

Jimmie Anne Stephens said...

Hi Julee, I really do wish you would make this angel wings shawl as a video tutorial. I love the pattern, but would be helped so much if I could see the stitches being made. I am sure others would to. This is a wonderful design! Thank you for sharing it.

Made this shawl in one week. Cannot believe how beautiful it is. Was planning to keep it, but since I work with Hospice, I may see how many I can make between now and Christmas. I used Red Heart Boutique Treasure in Spectrum and a K hook. So, so soft and cuddly. Thank you for the pattern.
