You’re going to love this lacy shawl crochet pattern.

It’s perfect for spring & summer using cotton yarn. Looking at those snowy mountains behind me at the pictures, that’s what early spring looks like around here. 

 

The shawl uses a combination of basic crochet stitches & there’s just a few easy instructions that gives the flow of the whole pattern.

That means this is a great shawl to crochet when you don’t want to drag the pattern with you.

THE YARN


To crochet this shawl I used 100 % cotton yarn, from 3 brands. 

3 brands? You don’t necessarily need to do that too, it was just the yarn I had available. 

All 3 has the exact same yardage & thickness. A perfect match.

THE PERFECT SPRING & SUMMER CROCHET PROJECT


This lacy shawl crochet pattern is perfect for the warmer season because it’s so lacy.

What I love the most about this shawl is the fact that the stitch pattern looks really decorative, which means it’s a great shawl to wear to spruce up your outfit.

It’s also really soft & easy to wear.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

ABOUT THE PATTERN:


This lacy shawl crochet pattern is worked from the bottom up. It uses only basic crochet stitches & can be finished quickly.

You will use a bigger crochet hook than the yarn suggest, this will exaggerate the lace look of the shawl after it’s blocked. 

Make it with cotton yarn for spring & summer, or with a warmer yarn for fall & winter.
