Doing what you love is the best thing! Creating something that you can share with the world is another thing! Combine these two things is absolute happiness!

I present to you my new design, the SEA SHADES SHAWLETTE! I know it’s summer and you probably don’t need a shawl in your wardrobe at the moment. I’m confident though that you’ll love this easy-breezy lightweight shawl design I came up with! I used fingering weight (#1) cotton gradient yarn so it’s just perfect for those chilly summer nights. This pattern is great to make all year round, in any yarn weight and fiber you may want!

The Yarn


When designing a shawl, I always use cotton or acrylic fingering weight (#1) self striping gradient yarns from my good friend, Odessa, of Dreamers Yarn. They offer a wide range of hand-dyed yarns, made of organic cotton, cotton-polyester, and more. They have a wide selection of intertwined or multi-strand/plied fibers of yarns. They accept custom colors too. If you’re not familiar with Dreamers Yarn cake yarns, well, it is like you’re crocheting with 4 or more strands of fine thread/yarn. It takes a little bit of time to get used to crocheting with this material.

If you knew me, I love anything with blue shades. When choosing yarn color, I always go with blues! This particular colorway I used (sorry, no name) screams summer on the beach! I love the fades or the ombre effect it creates. It really looks like the beach! It reminded me of the sea glass beach and the Caribbean Sea!

THE SHAWLETTE


The Sea Shades Shawlette is a simple yet chic triangle shawl that is made with gradient cotton fingering weight (#1) yarn. It features single, double, and treble crochet stitches and lots of chains. The main pattern of this shawl works up really quick but the edging pattern though it only has 3 rows is like another project! The edging is my favorite part of this pattern! Those treble clusters and picot stitches are just stunning and they add a beautiful finishing touch to the shawl.

Using a cotton yarn during summertime is just the right thing to do! But like what I mentioned earlier, using different yarn weights and fibers is also great so you could use your shawl whatever the weather or season maybe. The choice is yours!

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.

Notes 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours frogging your work & crocheting it again!
  • Make a swatch that measures at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge. Learn more about substituting yarn.
  • The beginning ch 1 does not count as an st, beginning ch 3 counts as 1 DC and beginning ch 4 counts as 1 TR or 1 DC + ch 1.
  • Placing a stitch marker in the center space is very helpful. With the stitch marker, you could easily locate the center space.
  • The asterisk * indicates pattern repeats. You will need to repeat all the instructions between asterisks.
  • Parentheses( ) are used to indicate a group of stitches to be worked in the same st/sp.
  • The brackets < > at the end of each row indicate the number of chains and stitches in that row.
  • This pattern can be easily customized to the size you like, how big or wide it may be. Also, you can use different yarn weight but when you do, adjust also the crochet hook size according to the size in the yarn label.
  • Just a reminder, the main pattern works up quickly but the edging part requires more work and more yarn. Think of saving some more yarn for the edging because ripping off your beautiful work is another added work.
