The Willow Shawl is a sideways, asymmetrical shawl which begins with just a few stitches at one tip and grows to its widest point, that is easily adaptable to any amount of yarn you have, or any thickness of yarn.
The pattern is easily adjusted to any size by simply adding or reducing repeat sections. The entire shawl is worked in an easy and meditative back and forth moss stitch pattern with intriguing V-stitch rows and serrated edge.
Easy crochet stitches
Involving only easy crochet stitches, this crochet shawl pattern is fascinating but easy enough to finish quickly. The stitch pattern is perfect for those who love meditative and easy patterns which you can memorize easily.
Combination of easy crochet moss stitch and asymmetrical shape gives this crochet shawl a sophisticated yet casual look.
There are so many color possibilities with this shawl. Any color combination will work, however this design works especially well if you use a gradient yarn or a fading palette of colors.
If you follow my work you have probably noticed that I am a big fan of yarns by Scheepjes. I decided to use brand new yarn by Scheepjes – Woolly Whirl – for this project. Woolly Whirl is 70% cotton and 30% wool blend created for lightweight projects and has long, beautiful color changes.
With just one skein you will create this beautiful crochet shawl. I could not be more happy with how this crochet Willow Shawl turned out. It might be one of the easiest and fastest crochet shawl you’ll ever made!
