Summer Shawl Crochet Pattern
With Summer days drawing to a close, and chilly nights taking their place, you’re in need of some warmth to replace the sun’s bright rays. That’s why we’ve created the Summer Shawl.
There’s no need to give up your walks on the beach or dinner by the seaside just yet. The Summer Shawl is cozy enough to make up for the sun’s absence, at least until next summer. And this shawl goes with anything in your closet.
Don't let this pattern intimidate you! I teach you exactly how to crochet a shawl in my crochet fundamentals class where you learn all the tips and tricks to mastering crochet techniques you need for this pattern and any other crochet pattern you might find challenging. Check out the class here.
Because it’s made in two colors, you can really personalize this wrap to fit your personality. Or you could make two! One in bright, summer colors. And another in tonal autumnal shades.
This shawl pattern is also great for people who are still working on developing their crochet skills.
It’s so versatile and cozy. The Summer Shawl will be sure to become a staple in your wardrobe.
