I’m excited to share this brand new crochet shawl today! The Chic and Strong Crescent Shawl has been off my hook for quite awhile now and is a FREE pattern from Red Heart Yarns!
Last year right around the time my book, Step Into Crochet, came out, I was The Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird! It was one hell of a good time, as it always is with Marly, and afterward, I got an email from her asking me to design something and she told me she loved my shawls. I love my shawls too…hell I even wrote a book about them. I agreed and we were off to the races.
Marly’s new yarn line, Chic Sheep, was used for the sample and lemme tell you…this stuff is like buttah. Soft as all get out and stitch definition that’ll make you want to crochet with it again and again! The yarn lent itself to the pattern so well, and honestly, it was fun choosing colors and seeing them work so well together. Marly and her team really did a great job creating a line of coordinating solids that will work for most projects you have! It’s a solid, plump, worsted weight yarn and blocks beautifully.
Chic and Strong Crescent Shawl is a simple crescent shaped shawl that uses worsted weight yarn. This shawl pattern comes in one size.
Use your favorite worsted weight yarn for this one or dig through the scrap stash and choose a couple of your old stand by’s. Choose a cool main color to really show off your stitch definition and skills!
This shawl does require a bit of blocking. This is needed for the crescent shape. So, brush up on those blocking skills y’all!
Oh…and before you think the edging is a little too daunting? The pattern includes full charts, so we’ve got you covered!
Get the pattern here for Free from Red Heart Yarns! Stock up on some Chic Sheep once you’re there too. You can’t find it in stores!
I’ll be hosting a FREE CAL (crochet along) in my Facebook Group Here, so make sure to join and we’ll get started on Monday, March 12th!
