This easy rectangular crochet shawl pattern is worked up in a lightweight yarn, which makes it perfect for the summer and transitional weather. However, you can also bunch this up for a cozy winter scarf if you like.
You only need one skein of Red Heart’s It’s a Wrap yarn. It’s a self-striping yarn, so you don’t have to worry about the colors.
If you’re using a different yarn, you could easily crochet this up in a single color or a striped design. The pattern provides a stitch multiple, making it easy to adjust to the size you want using any yarn and hook size.
