You only need 1 cake of Lion Brand Mandala Ombré to complete this project which is self-striping or you could chose any worsted/Aran weight yarn in your colour choice. This shawl is perfect to be worn under a coat or over a spring outfit!
I love the look of crochet rib stitch. This scarf plays with the classic ribs stitch. By combining repeats of different stitches, you end up with a scarf that has one side with thinner textured stripes and the other side with a wider textured stripes. This scarf is reversible with no wrong side. The pattern uses bulky weight yarn so it can be worked up in an afternoon. This pattern can be made with other weight yarns with minimal adjustments being made to the pattern. "
Varying widths of off white, grey and black come together to work up this Ombre Shawl, producing a gorgeous blend of color. As the designer says, "this is definitely not your granny’s shawl! The gorgeous stitch texture and modern striping help this shawl pair just as easily with your favorite pair of jeans as it does over a little black dress, and it can be easily customized to any size you like." This shawl is perfect for summer nights, when the temperatures drop without the sun, and can easily be worn into the fall as a light layering piece. If neutral shades aren't your style, work this crochet shawl up with shades of your favorite color, or mix and match hues to create a shawl that's uniquely you.
"Crocheting a traditional granny shawl is a fun, easy project. I love a Crochet Granny Stripe shawl and I wanted the design for Winter Flame Shawl to be a statement piece. Using a vibrant and colourful self striping yarn and a single colour to create the stripes, and you will love the fabulous result! You could choose to make this pattern in a single colour, or use a self striping yarn like I did to do all the colour work for you. This is such an easy relaxing project to make – if you can make a granny square, you can make this beginner friendly shawl!"
"This easy to follow crochet pattern uses only 1 Caron Chunky Cake to complete and a size 8mm crochet hook. This cowl can be styled over a lightweight jacket, a roll-neck jumper or simply paired with a denim jacket too. It adds not only a layer of warmth, but the opportunity to add your unique sense of style too! The many different colour options that the Caron Chunky Cakes are available in really give you a way of making this stunning cosy cowl your own way. You can even choose to make it in a plain colour with a chunky yarn of your choice"
"This puff stitch crochet shawl pattern is made from the top down and has very simple steps to increase the stitches in each row. The elegant crochet wrap is versatile enough to be worn with jeans or wear it with a dress in the summer to help keep you warm in the evenings. It’s also compact enough that it can be worn as a crochet scarf during the winter too. It’s made with worsted weight 100% cotton yarn so it’s soft and cozy, cool to wear and easy to wash."
