Sunset Shawl

Sunset Shawl

If you know someone in need of warmth, this Sunset Shawl is the perfect pattern to give as a gift. This beautiful crocheted shawl is an easy prayer shawl pattern to complete. It begins as a basic triangular shaped shawl, but turns into a bat wing shaped piece as you add the border. The earth toned colors are perfect for any time of the year, but the light and lacy design makes this especially appropriate for spring and summer. It's a great item to wear over a tank top of sleeveless blouse.

  • 5sh(ell): dc 5 times into same st
  • 7sh(ell): dc 7 times into same st

  • Sc: single crochet
  • Dc: double crochet
  • Sk: skip one stitch

Notes

This is an any yarn any gauge pattern. The size of the shawl will be altered by your choice of yarn and choice of hook size. I crochet very loose so I always downsize my hook size to get a certain stated gauge.

You start off with making a basic triangular shawl, but as you add the border, it will grow into a bit of a batwing shapedshawl. Increases are made at the sides and at the point. Some of the pattern notes for the border will be very extensive, but you only need to remember this: in the V-stitches there will be shells made en vice versa and in a (dc, ch1, dc) group there will only be (dc, ch1, dc) Group
