A simple crescent shawl pattern 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.
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. After several rows you get the hang of it and can continue on your own. This is also a great way to learn how to read a chart.
