The Stars in the Heavens will be looking down on you as you wear this shawl. It’s a beautiful, light weight shawl made to wear on a cool summer’s eve. Designed for variegated yarn but it still looks stunning in a solid color. Or have some fun and stripe it up. This would also make a spectacular Christmas Shawl.

Instructions are given for advanced crocheters to adjust the width and length of the shawl. If you just want it simple, there are instructions for small and large. Note that small usually means working with the heavier weight yarn as it takes fewer repeats.

This pattern is written for beginners. A simple pattern which looks complicated.

Sport Weight Shawl
Unnamed sport weight yarn with nubs, Acrylic/Poly blend, Newman Navy, 1350 yds per cone
Used: 382 yards, 6.1 ozs / 173 g

Sock Weight Shawl
Deborah Norville Serenity, sock weight, 50% Superwash Merino Wool / 25% Bamboo / 25% Nylon, Indigo (blue/navy/white), 1.76 oz / 50 gms, 230 yds / 210 mt.

Unlabeled yarn, lace weight, Indigo (dark blue)

Tip – Sock Weight Shawl used more yarn because I added 1 set of dc stripe + pattern rows on each end plus 5 pattern rows to the center for length.

Note - This pattern stretches lengthwise during blocking. It’s better to err on the side of making it too short because it’s going to grow when you block it. It is the nature of the stitches.

Tip - This pattern just LOVES variegated yarn!
