Lilla Shawl a Free Crochet Pattern

Lilla Shawl a Free Crochet Pattern

The Lilla Shawl is a small, lightweight shawl that’s perfect for Spring and Summer. This easy triangle shawl is a relaxing crochet pattern with a simple repeat to remember. Photo tutorial included, beginners and seasoned crocheters alike will enjoy the Lilla Shawl.

Personally, I love a small shawl that doesn’t overwhelm for this time of year. When I no longer need it on my shoulders I can transfer it to my neck, or even stash it in my bag. The pattern includes the easy repeat row instructions for continuing to increase your shawl to a larger size, if desired.

Berroco Weekend Cotton is soft, stretchy and comes in an array of gorgeous colors. This shawl does need blocking to achieve the proper shape. I’ve included photos and instructions for my process.

Finishing

Ch 1, sc in same st and each st to center, (sc, ch 1, sc) in center ch sp, sc in each st to end.

Weave in ends. Block your shawl. Since this one is cotton and washable, I washed it on a gentle cycle and laid it out on my blocking mats. Using my hands, I smoothed it into shape. I pinned along the edges to keep it in place. Then I let it dry. Eccola!
