Crochet shawls come in many shapes and sizes. Techniques used vary from demanding lace to the simplest stitches. Our Infinity Shawl is made entirely in filet crochet. The pattern is completely beginner-friendly.

Simple things are easy to make. Sometimes, they can be surprisingly luxurious. Our Infinity Shawl is quick to create. It goes with all kinds of outfits, and can be worn in various ways. Worn as a basic shawl or scarf, it doesn’t need closure. With a button attached to a flower, you can turn the shawl into a capelet. And with the help of even more crochet flowers, the shawl can even turn into a shrug.

The black shawl is made with modest cotton. The shawl takes about 200 grams/7ounces of yarn. This style can be made with almost any kind of yarn. I’ve made this shawl with sock yarn, mohair blend, and all kinds of cotton. Choosing a finer yarn makes the shawl a pleasure to wear.

Gauge isn’t all that important with this shawl: you can crochet the style as long as you like, and decide the width as you set up the foundation row.

The pattern includes instructions on how to crochet the Infinity Shawl, and the flower that closes it. The pattern also includes a variation to the style, a long scarf embellished with crochet flowers. The pattern (dl-size 2,6Mt) is written in Finnish and English.
