Introducing Shifting Shawl, a crochet pattern!
Today I’m here to tell you about Shifting Shawl, a pattern of mine found in Interweave Crochet, Fall 2015.
Truthfully, this is such an awesome design! This is an asymmetric triangular shawl. The filet panel you see is offset in this triangle.
The only stitches used in this shawl are double crochet and chains. You begin at one corner, and increase every few rows to widen the shawl to the point. Then you decrease to reach the other corner. The “edging” of this shawl is not really an edging, it is just the pattern made by the increases and decreases to shape the shawl.
This is a really easy pattern. You’ll need to focus on the filet chart while doing the filet panel, but the rest of the shawl could probably be worked while chatting with friends.
The yarn for this design is Lion Brand LB Collection Superwash Merino. This is a nice yarn, and it is inexpensive, so that’s good news for you. It’s a DK weight yarn that comes in 26 colors. You’ll need 2 skeins to complete the shawl.
