The Melon Ball Shawl is an easy/intermediate level pattern so if you are newer to crochet and looking for a next level challenge, this pattern is for you! And for those of you seasoned pro’s, this pattern is still very enjoyable and works up quickly.

You are working from one of the longer sides of the triangle shaped shawl and gradually decreasing to the next corner.

The only stitches you will need to know are the single crochet and double crochet and the pattern is a four row repeat that you can quickly memorize. The trim is a simple double crochet.

You will need at least three skeins of size 3 light weight yarn that contain at least 4.9 ounces of yarn. If you choose to modify the size of the shawl you will need more or less depending on what size you choose to make.

The example shawl is a one size fits most --- S/M/L/XL, but if you wish to make a plus size, I would encourage you to add at least 32 more chains to your foundation chain. You can add more than that if you wish. Just be sure to use a multiple of 8 plus 6.

The shawl’s finished size is 63” Width x 29½” Height.

This pattern is written in standard American crochet terms.
