Do you need a project to work on during long trips or while being out and about, needing to keep your hands busy?
How about trying the new Blueberry Popsicle crescent shawl pattern? It’s free and great for beginners to learn a new shape, but also challenging enough that you won’t get bored working on it (I’m pretty familiar with crochet-related boredom).
This pattern is perfect for traveling or crochet-in-public, as it only involves a little concentration, so you can keep your hands busy while keeping up with conversation. There’s no counting involved, you only decrease on one side and increase on the other, always on the same sides.
Use any yarn in your stash to make this gorgeous shawl that will drape around you like a breeze.
Find three coordinating colors in lengths of around 300 meters each (or less if you use heavier yarn) and watch the colors complement each other in this simple, yet entertaining pattern. Or choose a long gradient yarn and watch the colors flow.
Use a light and airy cotton/acrylic blend for a spring/summer wrap or a fluffy mohair/alpaca yarn for an autumn/winter wrap that will keep you warm and comfy.
Pick a hook that goes with your yarn (I used a 3 mm hook for small and even stitches) and start crocheting!
The patterns comes with written instructions and a handy chart, so you can use either one or both. There is an easy 12 row repeat that you will memorize really quickly, so you can take your project anywhere with you.
When you’re done, don’t forget to block your shawl to allow the fabric to relax, drape and swirl.
If you want to translate the pattern in another language, send me a message through the contact page and we’ll make it happen. I love to share my patterns with the world and make them available to everyone (that chart didn’t make itself, but it is quite handy as an international guide).
When you’re done with this, don’t forget to add your project to Ravelry and connect it to the pattern page here.
