Hello friends!

It’s the newest crochet shawl pattern for you! This time I designed wearable shawl excellent for a warmer wather that add some style to you outfit. Aprilis Shawl is an asymmetrical and modern shawl perfect for sport and fingering weight yarn.  I love to play with different shapes and textures.

Why Aprilis? Aprilis means April in latin. The reason is simple, April is my favorite month of the year. Not because of my and my daughter’s birthday, but this is the time when trees and flowers begin to open after the winter and the weather starts getting warmer here in Poland.

Aprilis Shawl is crochet diagonally starting at a single point and growing until you run out of yarn or when you achieve the desired length. The stitches used are so simple that make this shawl perfect for beginners and more advanced crocheters as well.  While the shawl consists just basic stitches and growing quickly the only think you want to do is crochet, crochet and crochet…

Working this project was very relaxing because the crochet pattern is easy enough to memorize and  follows a simple repeat of 4 rows. The result is a simple but interesting and rhythmic to crochet trendy shawl that you can make while watching your favorite show or watching kids on the playground.

I really like to try out new yarn and for this triangle crochet shawl I chose to use popular Our Tribe yarn by Scheepjes. It was very difficult for me to decide which colorway to use (every single skein of this yarn collection looks absolutely gorgeous) with this project but finally I picked out Cypress Textriles color.

Our Tribe yarn is a soft variegated blend of Merino Superwash and Polymede. It is incredibly soft sport weight yarn that is very easy to work with. If you are looking for yarn with incredibly rustic look you have to choose this one!

Originally, the pattern was designed for multicolor yarns but it will be equally beautiful in any solid color you love. Let your imagination just run wild.
