It features rows of double crochet interspersed with rows of filet stitches which create ladders throughout the wrap. I hit a wall coming up with a name, so I asked a group of friends, and Drew Emborsky suggested Bob. I’m pretty sure he was joking, but it was the only suggestion I got, and it made me laugh, so I went with it! So grab your Wool and the Gang Tina Tape and get crocheting!
"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
"Worked back and forth in rows on the bias, the Monochrome Bias Wrap is a great compromise between easy crocheting and a little bit of interest to keep you entertained. This bias crochet wrap is worked in sections with some easy, mindless single crochet parts for a relaxing crocheting experience, and interspersed with interesting sections of mosaic crochet. It’s long enough to wrap around the neck multiple times or to drape loosely over shoulders in numerous ways. This pattern is suited to both experienced crocheters and those eager for a challenge. The pattern uses US crochet terminology and includes step-by-step mosaic crochet tutorial."
"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 Montagna is an easy rectangle shawl crochet pattern. This open design uses filet crochet to achieve a lightweight design that is perfect for a summer shawl. This crochet shawl pattern features a subtle mountain, or “montagna” in Italian, outline. The main shawl stitch is filet crochet, or double crochets and chains. The mountain outline is simply made with blocks of double crochets together. They stack, or overlap in a triangular shape to achieve the mountain design. "
This wrap makes a beautiful piece for the fall season and is created with a simple four row pattern repeat. How difficult is this wrap? It’s simple, but it’s not for complete beginners. It’s got enough variation to keep you interested, yet it’s easy enough for those of you who’ve got all the basic stitches down. I guess I’d call it intermediate for that reason. It’s so fun to see the different colors emerge as you work through the pattern! Grab your worsted weight yarn and size I crochet hook to get started!
