April 1, 2019
crochet shawl free pattern gradient yarn

Introducing Wild Teasel, a Free crochet pattern for a large asymmetric shawl using two balls of a gradient yarn. I used two contrasting balls of Stylecraft Dream Catcher DK, a lovely gradient yarn with amazing bright colours! You can purchase it here

You could use any gradient yarn of your choice to make this free crochet pattern……or have a look through your stash.

Simple and easy pattern which draws the eyes to the vibrant colours, and the cute tassel fringing totally finishes it off.

Made using basic crochet stitches dc and sc. I designed this pattern to carry the yarn up the sides, so only two ends to weave in and you are finished!

Skill Level –Easy.

Notes

  • In US crochet terms with UK translations given in abbreviations
  • Shawl starts at one end. Working in rows, increasing by 2 sts every second row, on one side only, until desired size is reached
  • Pattern is a two row repeat
  • On straight side, ch2 does not count as a st
  • Gauge is not important. To achieve a light drape tension, I suggest you use a hook one size larger than recommended for the yarn you have chosen. Make a swatch of the first 8 rows to test your hook size.
  • Sample shawl uses two balls of yarn recommended, with a small amount left over.
  • You change colour every 2nd row, carrying the yarn up the side of your work.

Special Stitches

Puff stitch (PS) – Yo, insert hook into st indicated, yo, pull through (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through] 3 more times (9 loops on hook), yo and pull through all loops.

Cosy and soft, a brilliant pop of colour to suit every outfit!
