Crochet Colorblock Shawl – Red White and Blue

This Red, White, and Blue Crochet Colorblock Shawl is the perfect accessory for celebrating the 4th of July in the United States. The shawl is crocheted in blocks of red, white, and blue, capturing the essence of the American flag in a stylish and cozy way.

Wearing this easy shawl on Independence Day is a great way to embrace the holiday. It’s perfect for late at night as you watch the fireworks or during the day at a family barbeque.

Beyond the 4th of July, this versatile shawl can be a cherished part of your wardrobe throughout the year. The red, white, and blue color scheme can be easily coordinated with various outfits, adding a pop of color to your daily wear.

And for those not in the US, simply choose your flag’s colors or any colors you like! Red, white, and green would be great for Christmas, while brown, red, and orange would look great for the fall. As for spring, opt for shades of purple, green, peach, pink, or blue.

Customize the Size

The finished size for this shawl measures 19″ wide by 80″ long. However, as with your colors, the size can easily be customized as well. Simply increase or decrease your starting chains to the width that you want, and then follow the stitch pattern until you have reached the desired length.

Recommended Yarn: DK Weight

I used Nurture yarn by Euro Baby. When worked with a 5mm crochet hook it gives you a beautiful drape, which is always nice in a shawl like this.

I got my Nurture at YarnCandyBargains: Nurture by Euro Baby. Unfortunately, the yarn has been discontinued. As a substitute, you could try Amigurumi Circulo an Amigurumi Mercerized Light Worsted Cotton 3 here and here, also available in the same shop.

While the yarn is marketed as an amigurumi yarn, it is a soft and natural material, which makes it great for many other things as well. Plus, it is available in many colors.

The gauge may be off, but this shawl pattern is very forgiving as you can easily adjust the width by increasing or decreasing your starting chains. Then for the blocks of colors, simply work each color for one third of the total length.

The Stitch Pattern

The stitch pattern is none other than the beautiful, yet easy, moss stitch! It’s made with single crochets and chain one spaces, making it mindless to work on while watching tv, or hanging out in the living room with your friends.

The Moss Stitch Pattern

The stitch pattern is also known as the linen stitch, or the granite stitch. The stitch is reversible, making it great for blankets, scarves, bags and many other crochet patterns.

Plus, it is beginner-friendly, making it a great pattern to learn how to crochet. It uses only simple chains and single crochet stitches. Here is a basic tutorial:

First you make a slip knot and place it on your hook. Then chain an even number to get the width that you want.

Row 1: For the first row, single crochet into the second chain from the hook. Chain 1. Counting the number of stitches and chains, you should have one less than what you made in your foundation chain.

Skip a chain and single crochet into the next chain. Chain 1. Then repeat across. The last chain 1 counts as your turning chain.

Row 2: The second row is started with a chain one. Then single crochet into the first stitch, and into the first chain one space. Chain one, skip the next stitch, and single crochet into the chain space. Chain 1.

Continue across, working a single crochet into the last chain-1 space and into last stitch. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 3: The third row is started by working one single crochet into the first stitch. Chain one.

Skip a stitch and single crochet into the next chain space. Chain 1.

Repeat across, working a single crochet in the last stitch. Then repeat the last two rows.
