Luna Shawl – FREE Crochet Pattern

LUNA SHAWL FREE CROCHET PATTERN

Hello friend! My name is Elena. I am the designer and maker of the Lenysea channel on YouTube and lenysea_crochet on Instagram.

I am so happy to be the guest designer on the Joy of Motion blog and share my Luna Shawl!

LUNA SHAWL FREE CROCHET PATTERN

THE YARN


This was my first yarn purchase from Hobby Lobby. I decided to buy the store brand Yarn Bee.
The Sugarwheel Cotton caught my eye and color choice was an easy one: the local University’s color is purple, so I went with it. It’s called “Honey, It’s Homemade”.

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.

I was born and raised in a beautiful little country in Easter Europe – Republic of Moldova and in 2012 moved to USA. I was gifted a book with crochet lessons on my 10th birthday and fell in love with crochet since.
While I don’t have time to crochet all day, I use every free minute to dedicate to this craft. Besides crocheting, I enjoy cooking, jewelry making and reading.
