My gift to you this holiday season in 2018 is an easy shawl pattern. Enjoy!

This shawl is named after my great-great grandmother, Juliana, who was born in Germany in 1839. She immigrated, as a young adult, to America on a ship with her husband, Michael, and her small son, Gustav, and settled in Central Texas. I treasure several items that I received from my grandmother, that Juliana and Michael brought with them on the long journey.

My Juliana’s Journey shawl has a boomerang shape with diagonal rows, and is crocheted with an simple eight-row repeat. The stitch pattern forms points along the bottom edge, and scallops along the top long edge as you crochet through the rows.

This shawl is easy and you can memorize the stitch pattern, so you can work on this while watching a movie or visiting with friends.

I used a color changing DK weight yarn, James C. Brett Northern Lights, that is a very soft acrylic/bamboo mix yarn that comes in several beautiful color combinations. Get the look of stripes without changing yarn!

Use this yarn, or use your favorite DK weight yarn in a solid, variegated or color-changing yarn.
