Today’s FREE crochet pattern is the Lucia Sideways Shawl as i mentioned last week a lot of you have requested no long starting chains so i have been working on a few sideway shawls for quite a while now. The Lucia Sideways Shawl is another lacy design which uses very basic crochet stitches but done in such a way which makes them look really intricate and elegant and that’s what i love about most of the shawls i have designed, they look harder than they actually are.
"A lot of you have requested some side way shawls so you don’t have to crochet a really long beginning starting chain and TA DA i have listened to you and i have created shawls for you lovely lot! Today’s free crochet shawl is the Alice Sideways Shawl, even though the long starting chain shawls work up really quick, i must say this probably felt it worked up a bit quicker doing is sideways… who am i kidding i LOVE shawls whichever way!! The Alice Sideways Shawl is a beautiful lacy shawl with no difficult stitches as single crochet, double crochet and chain stitches are only used which makes it perfect for the beginner crocheter but still exciting enough for the more advanced crocheter."
"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 Brianna Sideways Shawl is a bit different than other shawls i have done as i normally design them lacy but this stitch really stood out to me and not everyone wants to have a shawl that has lots of lace so i combined moss stitch with puff stitches and then threw in some hdc stitches to give it a bit of a break from such confined stitches and i really think it works! Working moss stitch in to a piece gives it a textured look and this area actually worked up really quick even though it consists of chain and single crochet stitches. Because of the closed stitches i would recommend it being more of a autumn winter shawl but this would actually look great as a scarf also! Please note this is a beginner plus crochet pattern."
Today’s free crochet pattern is the Quinley Sideways Shawl, when i come across this stitch pattern i instantly fell in love with it as you know me i am sucker for easy to crochet shawls using simple stitches to give a minimalist look and this one hit the spot! The Quinley Sideways Shawl only uses two types of stitches which is the chain stitch and the dc stitch, which is great if you are looking for a mindless pattern to crochet and this one works up super quick with no fuss and creates beautiful shells and V stitches. This shawl is also worked sideways with no long starting chain and is crocheted in rows by turning your work over at the end of each row.
"Today’s free crochet pattern is the Devon Sideways Shawl and this beautiful shawl is a filet crochet pattern meaning that it just uses the double crochet stitch and the chain stitch. I designed a filet crochet blanket not long ago of broken chevrons and wanted to do that as a shawl but i got a bit carried away and in the end it didn’t end up as broken chevrons, it ended up as a double chevron but don’t worry the broken chevrons is still on my list to do. This crochet pattern is very easy as it consists of working it row by row, flat and sideways and it works up super quick! This shawl only took me 4 days to complete and then a few extra days for blocking. Even though this pattern is a filet crochet pattern i still like to block my shawls as it gives it more of a crisper finish and it lays more flat."Click here for the crochet pattern
