This lightweight crochet shawl pattern is just what you need to keep your shoulders warm on cool summer evenings. It has an elegant drape and can be worn many different ways to compliment just about any outfit, whether summer or winter.
In the hot weather this crochet wrap is just what you need to protect your shoulders, either from the sun or from a cool evening breeze. And in the winter when the weather gets cold you can bunch it up and wear it like a scarf.
Shown below it is wrapped around once, but it is long enough for a double wrap if you need something warm for the cold winter wind.
While a mindless pattern, I found myself needing a lot of light to help me see the stitches. A bright window during the day made it a relaxing project to work on.
The Stitch Pattern
If you’ve been a follower of this blog for a while then you know that the blossom stitch is one of my favorite stitches, especially for summer patterns. The stitch has a lot of chain one spaces to give you a “breezy” fabric. Plus, the stitches are alternated with the double crochets worked into the single crochets, and vice versa, to give you a nice lace as well.
It is a simple two row repeat to give you a simple, yet nice, lace across the fabric.
I did not add an edging. I found the edges came out fairly straight after blocking.
The finished measurements for this rectangular crocheted shawl are approximately 19 by 80 inches after blocking. A stitch multiple is provided to make it easy for you to make adjustments as needed.
I used a fine #2 weight yarn called United by Queensland Collection. It is a blend of lambs wool and cotton. It was the first time working with this yarn and I really like it.
Plus, the blocks of colors are awesome too. It makes it super easy to add more colors to your project without having to worry about whether or not they will look good together. One ball of yarn comes in four different colors for a nice unique look. I worked it over the short rows to give you nice big blocks, but if you worked it over the long rows, you would get a nice striped design.
You can get this yarn at YarnCandyBargains on Facebook. It comes in a pack of six balls.
