Easy Crochet Shawl Pattern

So crochet shawls aren’t super glamorous but they are ALWAYS reliable, whether it be for staying warm day to day or as gifts you know someone can always use. This easy crochet shawl will make a great Christmas gift, and it’s also a handy project to make as donations for the winter.

This easy crochet shawl pattern is as beginner friendly as they come. If you can double crochet, you can make this crochet shawl without any problems. If you want to make this same color scheme (or something similar) it’s as easy as can be with the right yarn.

I was sent some of this color changing yarn in my last package from @Perfect Yarns. You can literally use this yarn and follow the pattern to get the same look. There’s no need for changing colors or anything, it does all the color changing for you.

You can use any #1 super fine yarn you like, just make sure to check your gauge before you begin the pattern.

If you want to match this one exactly, make sure to grab some of this Yarn art Flowers from Perfect Yarns store. They’re not sponsoring this post, but I’ve been a customer for years and they’ve shown their support by sending me these goodies. They nailed it, and I’m happy to share their products. (It’s nice not always paying for your own yarn 😁)
