A free crochet pattern for an asymmetrical shawl, which is deceptively easy to make. Make a Crochet Fade with 3 colours of your choosing. This is a very easy crochet pattern that a beginner will be able to make….just make sure to keep count of your stitches! Choose your favourite fingering weight or DK weight yarn, and crochet the repeat pattern until you reach the size you want. Perfect for relaxing during Netflix binges!
I used 3 similiar colours which blended beautifully together. The yarn is a lovely cotton/merino mix. The stitch definition was crisp and smooth and a pleasure to crochet with! You can make your shawl following the colour sequence below or have fun making your own. The shawl would also look amazing in a gradient cake yarn.
