God, time passes so quickly. I can’t believe it’s March already and spring’s coming. I mean, thank God spring’s coming! Since the start of the year, I’ve had more time to focus on my designing work. That’s why I am so excited to show you my another crochet design – Flores Shawl.
Among more complicated projects I’ve made recently, I really needed something simple enough to think, listen to audiobook or watch a film while my hands are busy and productive. This shawl has it all and it’s suitable for those who want something quick and easy, but yet still stimulating.
The Flores Shawl is worked the top-down in two stitch patterns creating an asymmetrical look. Different pattern on each side of row provide an interesting to crochet project. One side of the row is worked in double crochet stitches while the other side is worked in mesh stitch. Read the pattern before beginning to familiarize yourself with construction.
This project can be easily adapted to a lager or smaller size by changing the pattern repeats. The sample shown use two skeins of fingering weight yarn, but this shawl will look awesome in heavier yarn too.
Last year, as my birthday present I ordered myself a few skeins of Scheepjes Our Tribe yarns. I have already used one colorway for Aprilis Shawl which I published a year ago and another design will be released soon, something other than shawl… so stay tuned!
For this project I decided to use the colorway designed by It’s all in a Nutshell. Any yarn will work but I highly recommend using a yarn in a veriegated colorway. An adventuorous beginner could happily make this shawl, and more experienced crocheters will also enjoy this intuitive pattern.
As a bonus in the ad-free, printable PDF, I’ve included a stitch chart. If you’re a visual learner or if you just want to support my work you can purchase this crochet pattern HERE on ETSY or HERE on Ravelry. Thank you and I hope you find it useful!
