The Shawl Toggle - tutorial only on
Hi, everyone! My name is Celina Lane and I’m delighted to be visiting Jessie at Home today from Simply Collectible Crochet to tell you about my amazing Shawl Toggle invention! Thank you so much for having me here, Jessie.
I had a little bit of a challenge deciding the perfect thing to share with you here, but then it dawned on me. This is the absolute perfect thing that everyone will need at some point. Not only will you want one of these for yourself, but they make excellent gifts to go with your crocheted gifts.

The Shawl Toggle - tutorial only on
Have you ever had a shawl or cowl, maybe even a scarf, that you needed to close up or keep on and a brooch or pin did not work? Well, I’m hoping you find this method I invented will blow you away. The Shawl Toggle is so simple, and so easy that you will giggle every time you put it on. I was really quite surprised by my own idea.
This Shawl Toggle diy tutorial will show you how to make a crochet shawl toggle that will allow you to extend the variety of choices to style your crocheted wearables. This shawl toggle also works for knit, but you will need lacy, open mesh designs for the toggle to fasten. I first started making these in 2012, but when I was photographing this very shawl, it kept slipping off the shoulders and I needed something to hold it up. I looked around for something to improvise, but there wasn’t anything in front of me. I started digging around for a pin or a brooch and saw a chain. I thought, “If I could wrap this chain through… no.”
Then it dawned on me and I remembered. It was so simple! I would like to say that I amazed myself, but it was not difficult at all and I cannot believe I haven’t seen anything like this anywhere. Not to say it has not been done in another form, but I did think of it on my own! It’s nice when that happens, don’t you think!?
