Introducing a free crochet pattern for a stunning crescent-shaped shawl. This delicate design is created using an easy open lace crochet stitch and is a simple, bottom-up pattern for a triangle shawl.
The edging with different colors adds a stylish twist to the design. You’ll only need one skein of fingering weight yarn and 50g of a contrasting color to complete this project. Includes written pattern instructions and a crochet chart
Yarn for this Lacy Crochet Shawl Pattern
I shared a popular pattern for an easy crochet triangle shawl last year, and I loved the wide crescent shape it created. Spindle shawl used worsted weight yarn but I wanted to try using fingering weight yarn for a more delicate crochet design.
For this new shawl you only need one and a half skeins of fingering weight yarn to make this lacy shawl crochet pattern. 150g of yarn in total will be sufficient.
A gradient yarn cake cake or any self-striping yarn would also create a beautiful shawl!
The pattern for this Crochet Crescent Shawl is worked from the bottom up for the main body of the shawl, creating a wide triangle shape. You will then add a border worked in rows to the bottom of the triangle, leaving the top untouched. I used 2 colours for the border but you could also use just a single colour if you wish.
This delicate design is created using basic crochet stitches to create a lacy, openwork fabric. The simple 2 row repeat pattern is easy and relaxing to crochet.

Soak your shawl 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
