About this Pattern
If you’re looking for a lightweight crochet shawl to keep the breeze off your shoulders, you’re in the right place. Our breezy crochet shawl is made up of medium weight yarn that’s incredibly soft.
With this project you’ll get lots of practice with basic increases and how increasing along the side of your project can change the shape, a very useful skill you can incorporate into other projects. For this shawl, we recommend using Shawl In A Ball yarn because you only need a single skein. But the pattern is incredibly versatile so you can pair it with just about any medium weight yarn in your stash.
Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as a tutorial and written instructions to complete the breezy crochet shawl from start to finish.
- Approx 480 yds; Lion Brand Shawl In A Ball Yarn; (Colorway pictured: Restful Rainbow)
- 6 mm Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.
