This Crochet Wave Shawl Pattern was a pleasure to make and I am so pleased to share it with you. You can use your favourite gradient yarn cake to make this beautiful flowing wrap!
This easy to wear rectangular shawl is worked in a four-row repeat crochet pattern, and it’s easy to customize for your perfect size. It would be perfect to add a splash of colour to a winter coat, or as a light shawl for warmer weather.
Yarn for the Crochet Wave Shawl
Loganberry is a hybrid fruit of the blackberry and the raspberry and is dark red in colour. The beautiful gradient of the yarn has a stunning slow colour change from pink to dark red, reminding me of lush berries.
I used a yarn I purchased from Hobbii Yarns called Azalea and the colourway is called Pink Delight. It is marked as a Sportsweight yarn but it feels and works up like a Fingering weight.
Most similar weight gradient yarn cakes will have between 800m to 1000m of yarn and work great for this pattern. I used a 4mm crochet hook but you may find a 3.5mm hook more suitable for your tension, especially if you crochet more loosely.
The flowing open lace pattern is easy to work up. Once you have the first 2 rows established, the pattern is a breeze to make!
Don’t be put off by the long starting chain, which can be a bit daunting. Placing a stitch marker every 50 chains or so as you make the foundation chain, can be very helpful to keep stitch count. My best tip is to always chain extra, as you can easily pick back surplus chains later.
There is nothing worse than finding yourself short a few chains and having to start again!

Notes (read carefully)
- This design has a long starting chain which can be a bit daunting. Placing a stitch marker every 50 chains or so, can be very helpful to keep stitch count on the foundation chain
- The pattern is a 16 st repeat. Chain a multiple of 16 + 2 sts for the foundation chain
- The pattern uses US crochet terms, and you can find UK terms in Abbreviations
- Gauge is not important. To achieve a light drape tension, I suggest make a swatch of a 16 st multiple and see what hook size works best for you.
- The size of the wrap is easily adjustable. Chain to the length you wish your wrap to be using the multiple given.
- You can adjust the width by crocheting fewer or more rows of the repeat

Rows 2-5 form pattern
Continue in pattern for a total of 53 rows or reaching size required.
Weave in all loose ends. You may like to block your wrap. Soak in lukewarm water and gently wring in a towel. Lay project out to finished size and pull gently into shape. Pin in place and leave to dry. Add fringing if you wish.
Cut lengths of yarn approximately 12 – 14” long. I used 9 fringing lengths for each side (total of 18) You will need 16 – 20 lengths of yarn for each fringe piece, depending on how thick you want your fringe to be. Fold each piece in half and attach evenly to both ends of the scarf.
