I normally don’t make shawls because I don’t see myself wearing them. But this cupcake yarn from Lion Brand is just begging to be made in to a shawl.  At first sight I loved the colors of this lovely little cake and loved them even more once worked up in this fun pattern. I think I might just reconsider wearing shawls.

Looking for a simple shawl pattern? I’ve got you covered. The cool breeze colorful shawl looks complicated but the stitch pattern is mainly chains and double crochet stitches. Once you remember the pattern repeat, its a no brainer.  No increasing or decreasing just keep working the pattern until you love the length of your shawl. Let’s get started

Shawl should measure approximately 68 inches or desired length.

Add the Fringe

Cut several pieces of yarn to measure approximately 22 inches long.

Insert your hook through the center of the ch-4 sp at the edge of the shawl. With 10 strands of yarn held together, catch the yarn and pull it through to the reverse, creating a loop.

Use the crochet hook to catch the yarn and bring it through the loop just created. Pull gently to tighten the loop

    Love the look of this shawl. If I wanted to change the width of this, should I make sure the starting chain is a multiple of 10?

      Hi Jen
      I’m glad you like it. You should make your chain a multiple of 8 plus 2. So if you want a smaller width you could start with 66 or 74. If you want it wider 130 and so on.
