Today’s free crochet pattern is the Ferne Sideways Shawl, this beautiful shawl is such a joy to make as it uses simple crochet stitches to make a minimalist design but still looks absolutely stunning on! When creating the Ferne Sideways Shawl i took the design from the Ferne Asymmetrical Shawl and created it sideways and even though it’s the same design it still looks different. Working a shawl up in filet crochet makes this shawl a perfect quick and mindless project to make and only takes four days to do if you crochet 220 yards a day! Since this is a filet crochet pattern you will be working the shawl pattern in only double crochet and chain stitches, once you have crocheted rows 1-7 from then on you will only follow a four row pattern repeat which is super easy to remember.
"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
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.
"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."

When sat there working the Boux rectangle shawl up which you can find here, i came up with the idea of doing an asymmetrical shawl using the same stitch pattern. Now i will be very honest, in the past when designing an asymmetrical shawl i always used the filet crochet method and i had never designed a shawl with an actual stitch pattern so it took a little more working out than normal (but not as much as the one that i am currently working on, new pattern coming soon YAY!) but the Boux asymmetrical shawl turned out just how i wanted it and it is actually one of my most personal favorites to date, i think because there was a sense of achievement in something i had never done before.
