THE PERFECT SUMMER & FALL CROCHET PROJECT


YES, the Soft Easy Crochet shawl is perfect for summer, but as I mentioned, it’s a great piece when you transition into fall.

The yarn feels super soft against your skin & isn’t warm the same way as wool often feels.

That’s why I would prefer using this for projects for summer & early fall.

Another reason why you’re going to love the Soft Easy Crochet Shawl is because it’s a light piece to bring with you. If you get a bit cold, it’s easy to grab it from your bag & it doesn’t take much space.

The Soft Easy Crochet Shawl is also great because of the pretty stitches. You’re going to love the look & feel pretty while you wear it.

Instructions:

Crocheted from the small tip with increasing width for each row.

The stitch marker on even rows is placed to help localize the first stitch when working odd rows & can be skipped. If used, move it each time you start even rows.

Tip: A stitch marker can also be used to identify the final stitch that you will not crochet in on even rows. This can be done by placing the stitch marker in the first hdc made on each odd row.

*See video tutorial below, chart & picture tutorial further down for more details about the first few rows.
