Long chains and solo single crochet stitches create the airy Sprout Chains Shawlette by Kristin Omdahl. This sweet little shawl is the perfect accessory for a pretty dress or to wrap around your neck for a fun scarf. Dainty flowers finish off this easily memorized pattern. The fringe border is easy to make because the flowers are worked right into the border, even though they look like they were crocheted as separate motifs. The best part about this pattern is that it is truly relaxing and quick; you could work up this simple design in a flash to add to your wardrobe or to give as a shawl to a friend in need.
The Flowers for Eryn Wrap by Tracy St. John was inspired by traditional Irish lace crochet. Shell-stitch panels and a mesh border frame the vintage roses. The length of this cozy wrap can be easily adjusted by simply working longer or shorter shell-stitch panels. The traditionally delicate Irish crochet paired with a robust, slightly fuzzy yarn results in a classic update of this timeless technique. Fall in love with the flowers with this free crochet shawl pattern.
The Waffle Lattice Shawl by Elin Nybø is created with simple crocheted chains of varying lengths. The chains are felted to create the soft, fuzzy texture. Composed of nothing but crochet chains attached in a lattice pattern, this easy crochet shawl pattern can be completed in an afternoon. This light and airy design would also be a wonderfully simplistic pattern for prayer shawls. You’ll love experimenting with creative ways to wear this striking design.
Chanson en Crochet by Mari Lynn Patrick begins with a simple crocheted chain at the neck edge before falling effortlessly around the shoulders in bands of elegant lace. This vintage capelet is the ideal opportunity to play with different lace patterns. Adding some fun and unusual crochet stitches in bands give the lace a graceful form. Each stitch is clearly explained so more novice crocheters aren’t intimidated by the changing stitches. The increases that shape the lace shawl are worked as an integral part of each stitch pattern, so the circumference grows with each pattern band. A row of picot stitches around the neck and lower edges add the perfect finishing touch.
Crochet a Hug by Marcy Smith was designed while drawing on the tradition of prayer shawls, this lace design features a meditative stitch pattern based on a trinity count. The easy wattle-stitch pattern, comprised of three basic stitches, is quickly memorized and wonderfully meditative. Create one for yourself or several as gifts. Simple and easy, this shawl can be worked as a solid color or with striping as featured in the original project. Its bulkiness allows you to work it up fast, for folks in need of immediate comfort. This pattern can also be easily sized up for an afghan, or down for a scarf, making it the perfect versatile pattern to keep around.
Shawls are the go-to project to pair with that little black dress for a special occasion or to give to a friend in need of comfort.
