Trying out my hand at designing a crochet Asymmetrical shawl. I've made several Butterfly Shawls designs and wanted to try something new. I really like the way you can wear these Asymmetrical shawls, it's reminds me something between a cowl and a regular shawl the way I've seen it worn. I found the perfect stitch that looks great from both sides. Me and my husband actually like the way the back of the stitch looks better than the front side of the stitch. Which for us makes this a double sided Asymmetrical shawl! I'll let you decide. I really hope you enjoy this Asymmetrical shawl as much as I did making it.

The Darla Asymmetrical Shawl is made up of double crochet stitches and chain spaces with increasing on the one side, to help me remember the side i need to increase on i always use a stitch marker, i just place it in to any stitch on the side that i increase on so i know when i see that stitch marker i will be increasing at the start or at the end of the row, but other than that its very easy to crochet.
"Today's free crochet pattern is the Kaylee Sideways Shawl which features a very easy stitch design. The stitch used for this shawl only uses single and double crochet and chain stitches to create a mesh effect running all the way through the shawl. When i first started this shawl i did think this might take a while to do just because of the single crochet stitches but actually i made it in no time at all and it only used 4 skeins of cascade 220 in aran which is really good! Also when crocheting this shawl i only crocheted 66 inches in length because i could just tell due to the stitches that it was going to stretch quite a bit when blocking and boy did it, it went from 66 inches to 75 inches in length which is a lot of growth! So just bear that in mind when crocheting this shawl it is a grower, you really don't want it too long."
The Catherine Cowl shows off the Catherine Wheel Stitch quite nicely in vibrant pink lightweight yarn. This crochet pattern includes a tutorial that takes you step by step through crocheting the Catherine Wheel stitch if you haven't done it before. There is also a crochet diagram included if you prefer that method. You only need 437 yards (400 meters) of yarn for this cowl that measures 8 (20 cm) in diameter and 26 (65 cm) in circumference. This crochet cowl would make a great stash busting project or you could use scraps for a colorful look.
"The Sunday Stroll is the perfect fall cowl with a little twist (or slant in this case!) in colors that compliment both each other and any fall wardrobe. It is a fun easy cowl that is crocheted completely, and the slanted slip stitches are added at the end. Front and Back Post Double Crochet stitches create the ribbing at the top and bottom with the body of the cowl being a moss or linen stitch. This pattern uses two skeins of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted (110yds each) in two different colors."
