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.
Find the full free pattern below or purchase the ad-free, printable PDF crochet pattern with stitch chart HERE on ETSY or HERE on Ravelry.
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.
If you need and beautiful and wearable idea for Mother’s Day gift keep my Aprilis Shawl in mind. Choose your mother’s favorite colors and say “thank you” and “I love you” with your own handmade gift for her.
Follow the pattern as written or add additional rows to create a larger wrap.

Where do I get the beautiful yarn that you used for the aprilis shawl?
I bought mine in my Polish local shop with yarns but you can try here http://www.scheepjes.com/en/shops/
Beautiful shawl! Love the pattern repeat and the colorway you chose is dreamy! Thanks for posting this pattern.
Very nice and easy pattern and you selected a very soothing colorway. Mine is on the way.
Pattern is for Shawl but picture shows as a poncho. For Poncho do you mak 2 shawls and sew together. If so how much to sew for head opening
It’s a shawl, no poncho.
Hello. Do you have a tutorial for this shawl?
Hi! No, it’s just a written instruction here on the blog.
I would very much like a tutorial. The instructions are not really clear. Please assist me.
What exaclty is unclear?
Row #2 is not clear to me.. what does “..in the 4th of the 5th” mean? Thank you!
Row 1 starts with ch5 and in row 2 the last stitches (dc, ch1, dc) you should work in the 4th chain of those ch5 from previous row.
Do you have any pictures of what it looks like along the way? I love the way it’s looking so far but I want to make sure it’s right.
No, just pictures of finished shawl. Feel free to send me some photos if assistance needed.
I really hate doing sc, it is hard on my fingers, could i substitute with hdc instead?
You can try.
