About the pattern

This is a detailed pattern for a simple crescent shawl that shows off your craftsmanship and the beautiful color progression of long-gradient yarns.

It’s symmetrical, wide and relatively shallow (when compared to a simple triangle shawl), so you can wear it as a triangle scarf on colder days and as a wrap on summery evenings.

It’s the perfect project for social events (if you like to crochet in public) or for evenings spent watching your favorite show, as it requires only little concentration.

Only one cake of yarn is necessary for this pattern, so your project is portable and you can take it with you anywhere, on trains, planes and the passenger seats of a car.

Use any yarn you have in your stash that has a long gradient, such as one of the suggested yarns, which have 800-1000 meters per 200 grams, or pick some yarns from your stash that make up the same 800-1000 meters and use your color mixing skills to make your own color blocks or gradient.

There is no gauge for this pattern because you work on your shawl until it’s large enough for your needs or you run out of yarn. So use a hook that helps you crochet easily with your chosen yarn and that makes uniform stitches.

You can use a 3 mm hook, 4 mm or even 5 mm and you’ll still end up with a beautifully draping shawl. The secret for this is in the bias construction.

The best part about this pattern? It comes with both written instructions and a chart in the PDF version. After several rows you get the hang of it and can continue on your own.

The pattern has been tested by several lovely people (check out their photos) and the final version has been released on May 1st 2019.
