Today I am so excited to show you my newest crochet design Spring Solstice Wrap. This shawl has an unusual and fun construction so it keeps the crochetng interesting. It starts from a top-down triangle-shaped shawl for a centered and it ends with two angled halves of the wrap.
Actually, there are no complicated techniques and stitches combinations here in this crochet pattern. This geometric design is fully reversible and consists only basic stitches: the chain stitches, the single crochet and the double crochet. They are perfecly combine to create the mesh lace portions and the contrastive eyelet stripes.
I decided split the pattern into three parts because the entire instructions were too long at once. In the Part 1 you will find instructions for Row 1- Row 33. It means we will be working the main trangle of this shawl today. Next two parts of the instruction will be released weekly. Free pattern for part 2 will be available next Friday on my blog.
For those who would like the whole instructions up front the ad-free printable PDF is availabe in my ETSY and Ravelry shops. The crochet pattern includes both the written instructions and crochet charts.
The finished trapezoid shape shawl is gorgeous wearable and elegant accessory that is beautiful when worn as a traditional shawl, wrap or scarf around your neck.
