Akiko is a lovely crescent-shaped shawl with a flowing design that celebrates color! This is a rhythmic shawl pattern that requires very little counting, no color changes mid-row, and allows you to carry the main color up the side of the shawl for less ends to weave.

I designed this shawl specifically for that One Skein of yarn. You know, that ultra-variegated, oh-so-colorful skein you bought because it was so, so pretty, but you could never find the perfect project to do it justice… until now! This shawl is made specifically to celebrate (and contain) the wild colors of variegated yarn, so pick your craziest skein and watch the magic happen as you crochet!

This pattern contains helpful, clear photos, and easy to follow, detailed written instructions; perfect for an intermediate level crocheter! Detailed photo tutorials are included for the trickier stitches in this pattern.

This is an original design, using US crochet terms. You may not copy, distribute or sell this pattern as your own design, but feel free to sell finished shawls made from this pattern!

Skill Level: Intermediate. Requires knowledge of sc, hdc and dc stitches.

Size: Shawl shown measures approximately 60” in wingspan and 18” in depth.
