I had read several responses, a while back, about ladies taking their shawls in their purse for ready-use, but I don't recall if there was a link to any patterns. Does anyone have a shawl pattern that when made up is compact enough to fit in a purse? Can be knit or crochet. Thank you in advance for your response.

I would be interested in a shawl that would fit in a small purse also but imagine the shawl would be small too. I don't like carrying a huge purse that is the size of a luggage carry on bag just to be able yo have a shawl at the ready.

Is this in keeping with the "wedding ring" shawl??? You know, the shawl is thin enough to fit through a wedding ring? I think it's done with that really, really, really fine yarn and a #0 or #1 knitting needle.

I have a shawl that would not fit in a tiny purse but does not need a huge one. However, I "stuff" it into a pretty drawstring (ribbon) mesh bag that's sold for jewelry gifting and it compacts nicely. I found this bag at a craft store. I think "squish-ability" depends on the type of yarn. I originally thought of using the bag so my shawl would not snag on items inside the purse.

I cannot remember my pattern, but I am sure there are many others, lacier ones, that would probably compact even better.

Thank you for your reply, the wedding ring shawl might have been where I saw the reference to "stuffing in a purse"posts. There weren't any pattern suggestions. But, using the tiny needles may be the answer. Now to find a thin yarn...

Mpetrueng thank you for your reply. Squishable is a great term for the shawl. I will try some simple shawl pattern with some light weight yarn and see what happens. I will post my results. Thanks!

I think knit would be the way to go, with crochet, there is too much bulk for squishing very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That would be a great pattern to do. Hope someone posts a pattern.

Morehouse Farm has a pattern for "foulard with case". It is a simple knit in lace or fingering yarn (440 to 880 yards depending on size of the foulard) which is worked corner to corner. I've made several for gifts using some of the lovely Morehouse merino wool variegated lace yarns.

The pattern is listed on ravelry:

The shawl pattern which fits in my mesh bag is Oaklet, but I am sure lacier styles would compact even more easily.

It's a free Ravelry download.
