Homespun Comfort Shawls is a collection of 6 lovely crochet shawls all made with Homespun Yarn. Homespun is made by Lion Brand, and is a soft and squishy bulky yarn which works up quickly. The patterns included in this booklet all show off the best qualities of the Homespun yarn.
The 6 patterns in the booklet are clear and well-written. They include schematics and pictorial directions as needed. The end of the booklet has additional instructions for things like joining pieces and making fringe. All the instructions you need are included.
The patterns include many different colors of Homespun, but of course, you can choose any of the colors you like. These shawls make great gifts, and will wrap your loved ones in warmth.
I love the variety of pattern designs in this booklet. There are light and lacy, and big and cozy. All of them are very pretty as well. There is something for everyone here. The patterns vary in difficulty from easy to intermediate.

Jessie, I love the patterns in the book but I have trouble crocheting with Homespun. It is hard for me to see the stitches because of the nature of the yarn. I’ve started 3 different projects with Homespun & ripped them out. Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions?
It can be a tricky yarn to crochet with, I often have to feel where the stitches are.
Knitting with this yarn I’ve found to be a little easier. You are able to see the stitches better on the needles than with a crochet hook.
