Sorbet Summer Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern

The perfect way to add a little pop of color to your summer wardrobe, my Sorbet Summer Shawl is the newest free pattern from Rohn Strong!


Hello Friends!

I love welcoming each of you like that. That’s exactly how I think of each of you. Friends. You bring such positivity and light to my little corner of the world and, for that, I thank you.

Alright, back to the crochet!

I whipped up this shawl some time ago and haven’t had a moment to share it with you! It’s a gorgeous simple shawl using some cotton yarn.

Here in the south, we have the hottest summers known to man and each year they just seem to get hotter. This year is no exception. The truth is, as hot as it gets outside, it gets colder inside.

If you’re like me, that damn A/C unit just chills me right to the bone. So, having a little something to throw around my shoulders is just perfect.

The Design

This design is constructed back and forth using a thinner worsted weight yarn and a larger hook. Increases and decreases form the asymmetrical shape and I worked stripes every few rows to give it a really cool and modern look!

The yarn I chose to use was discontinued between actually making this project and posting this pattern. So, in lieu of that I am just going to share the yarn amounts/yardage with you and you can make the shawl as you wish!

The Pattern

I have this thing about shawls. Especially Pi shawls, those shawls that are as easy to design as they are to crochet up! If you’ve never crocheted a shawl before…The Scipio Shawl is for you!

You can purchase the pattern HERE for just $3. The price will go up on July 27th, 2018, so get it while you can.

This shawl was originally designed with the beginner crocheter in mind. It’s one of those ‘skill builder’ projects. You begin with a few stitches in single crochet and work your way up to triple crochets. All the increases are really simple to do and done all at once.

The best thing? Gauge and counting don’t really matter all that much! Seriously!

The beauty of math.

The super simple shape and basic stitches make this piece the perfect canvas for color changing yarns, like Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball, which is what I used here, but more on that later.

The best part about this shawl? It can be made in a number of sizes. Seriously! Because it is crocheted from the top down, you don’t have to worry about having enough yarn or getting too bored…just stop whenever you want!

The pattern is written for a nice sized shawl, about 60 inches across and 24 inches deep. Honestly, it doesn’t take long to get their either. A lot of the stitches are triple crochet, which means it flies right off the hook. I made mine in just two days.

Let’s chat about yarn for a minute, shall we? I love color changing yarns…but I hate that I can’t choose the colors inside. I chose to use Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball in the colorway, Unique Unicorn. This was the perfect blend of colors for me…except the grey. That color just threw it all off for me. I actually didn’t work with the yarn I purchased because of that color. Then, I got an idea, why not just cut it out? So…that’s what I did. I worked right up to that color, cut the entire color out, rejoined the yarn and kept going! DIY Maker HACK!

This shawl can be made in just about any weight yarn, you’ll just want to adjust the hook size for the yarn you have. Here’s a handy guide:

Fingering: I/9
DK: J/10
Worsted: K/10.5
Bulky: L/8mm
Super Bulky: 10mm

Keep in mind that although I used Shawl in a Ball, and it happens to be a worsted weight yarn, it works up like a fingering, which is why I chose a I/9 5.5mm crochet hook.
