Raspberry Splash Shawl

It’s time for another pattern share!

As you all know, I love creating shawls/wraps! I may not use them that often but designing and seeing them come to life gives me that “YAY” feeling — that feeling of accomplishment! It is more satisfying when you write up the pattern, get it tested and the feedback comes back amazing!

For today’s free pattern, I teamed up with my friends at Clover-USA to bring you this beautiful lacy shawl! This elegant shawl is a perfect addition to your summer to fall/winter wardrobe! Since it is still summer, I decided to use the hand-dyed gradient cotton yarn from Dreamers Yarn, but of course, you can definitely use any yarn fibers you want. I want to mention that since the gauge for this pattern is not that important, you may also use any yarn weight/category you want. When you opt for different yarn weights, please adjust your crochet hook or use the recommended hook size on the yarn label. With the coming colder seasons, I am sure that it is much better to use warmer fibers and/or thicker yarn weights. So, with these being said, the choice is definitely yours!

This lacy triangle shawl is fun to make and it works up pretty fast! I used my all time favorite hook – the Clover Amour Crochet Hook in making my shawl! The Clover Amour Hooks are my go-to hooks and they never disappoint me when crocheting!

This pattern is pretty much an adventurous beginner project! All you need to know to make this shawl are the basic crochet stitches like the chain, single crochet, and double crochet plus the picot stitches. I included a YouTube tutorial for the picot stitch so you can watch and learn before you begin with this project.

Once the pattern is established, you only need to repeat 2 rows until you get to your desired shawl measurement! How easy is that? You also have the option to add the simple edging or border! But, if I were you, I will absolutely finish it with the one row edging! This gives the finishing touches to the shawl!

Are you ready to get start?
