Hi I'm Cassandra Allen-Brown from Bags by Cab-Yarn Shoppe, and today I'm going to teach you how to crochet a simple ribbed shawl. With a ribbed shawl it is important to start with whatever your favorite yarn is and then on this one I have an acrylic and I have started with a foundation chain of 35. And this stitch is a simple single crochet and all you do is chain one and turn. And they you're going to back loop only through the loops here. Back loop, single crochet, for your entire row. Which this back loop only, if you're reading a pattern, is BLO. You will notice it gives you a really nice ribbed appearance. And I like using this ribbed appearance on a number of things. Mittens and gloves and hats all look really nice with the ribbed appearance like this. And you will continue your entire pattern in the back loop only until you reach the desired length of your ribbed shawl. And of course most of them are kind of a one size fits only. But you're going to make yours for yourself or give it as a gift to someone. So if you're giving it away make sure that it is the right size for that individual, so it has a perfect fit. And we're just back loop so all you're doing is entering your hook in the back loop and you pull the yarn through, chain over and pull it through. It's a real simple pattern. And your entire row, as you'll see, will have that ribbed appearance. Almost done with this one. And when you come to the end of your row, this is the last one, then you would just simply chain one and turn and then you just start all over again. Back loop only. And that will give you this ribbed appearance as you can see here. And that would be your ribbed shawl. And I'm Cassandra Allen-Brown Bags by Cab-Yarn Shoppe, Denver Colorado.
