The Boux shawl is a very easy beginner shawl pattern with a lovely mesh look which makes it very light and airy for a worsted weight shawl. When i worked this pattern up i will be honest i wasn’t expecting it to be so long but i think because of how the stitches are it made it a lot longer than my other shawl patterns, i mean it’s not a bad thing it was just quite unexpected but i still love how it turned out and even though its a one row repeat which can get boring quite fast i didn’t find this one did to be honest. I managed to work this one up in between homeschooling, my other job and running a house so it was a nice fast easy project on the hook.
"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."
When looking for a stitch for my next shawl i was going with something a little more plainer in mind, i just find sometimes a really plain stitch like the one i used for this pattern can still look really beautiful without all the fanciness. This stitch pattern has vertical stripes using double crochet stitches with chain spaces in between and i think it gives it more of an elegant kind of feel. When i started working this rectangle shawl it was such an easy one to get into where there wasn’t a lot of thinking involved but the results still came out beautiful and was worked up quickly.
"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
"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."
"The Amelia shawl is a lovely lacy design with only a two row repeat which is quite easy to remember so you can easily put your programs on or listen to some music and crochet away without much thinking. I added a last row to this as i felt you couldn’t really just end it on rows 3 or 4 and it have a finished look to it so i thought i might as well add an extra last row to give it a proper finished look which i think turned out great and it still flows with the pattern."
