I am so excited to share a new free crochet with you…the Aspen Shawl! This easy triangle shawl would be the perfect last summer project.
In case you haven’t noticed, I love lace. It is one of my favorite things to design. With the Aspen Shawl, my goal was to create a simple lace pattern in the body of the shawl, and then add an elegant lace showpiece around the edges.
I think it turned out pretty well! Plus, I absolutely love the hand-dyed yarn I used. It is sport weight yarn from Sapphires n Purls, and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors and the springy feel of the yarn. Click here to see exactly what I used!
If you’ve never made a triangle shawl before, this one would be a great place to start! It uses simple stitches without—just double crochets and chains!
Another great thing about this shawl is that you can easily adjust it to be ANY size you want! There are only 2 rows of the repeating stitch pattern, and you can repeat them as many or as few times as you’d like.
