3 Stunning Summer Shawls!

Swirl a summer shawl around your shoulders to shelter from the sun, fend off an evening breeze or dress up with a luxury yarn!  A shawl is one summer accessory you just can’t do without!

1. Hilo Shawl by Joanne Scrace

Deliciously deep Hilo Shawl by Joanne Scrace on the LoveCrochet blog

This divinely deep lace shawl from super-talented Joanne Scrace is a dream to crochet and wear!  You’ll need two skeins of Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply, a stunning yarn with beautiful drape thanks to its 45% silk 55% merino wool blend.

Crocheted here in Water (304), there are 16 glorious shades to choose from – we love Flying Saucer (311), Baby Pink (306) and Magenta (315).

2. Isla, by Anna Nikipirowicz

Isla is a super shawl from the brilliant Anna Nikipirowicz – perfect for a crochet beginner and can be made up in any DK yarn.  You will need 920m/568yrds of yarn,  – Anna’s shawl pictured is crocheted in Rowan Pure Linen, which feels firm as you crochet to begin with, but will soften as you work.  Linen brings a fabulous summer coolness and drape – but you could achieve this look with a cotton DK too – or use a fabulous shimmery silk blend yarn for evenings!

We love BC Garn Allino for this gorgeous shawl, a fabulous linen and cotton blend, perfect for warm weather and a range of stunning shades to choose from!   These summery colours – CL11, CL14 and CL19, are fresh and vibrant and are calling out to be crocheted into a shawl!

This brilliant yarn would crochet into gorgeous homeware too – its slightly semi-solid shades mingle together perfectly for a dream of a summer blanket!

3. Nori Lace, by Julie Blagojevich

Noci Lace shawl on the LoveCrochet blog

A crocheted lace dream! Nori’s Lace is a long triangular shawlette worked from side to side, with the lace sections worked back and forth across the length of the wrap.

This fabulous shawl is perfect for a bold beginner, and would be gorgeous crocheted in just two balls of fabulous Louisa Harding Amitola! A stunning blend of wool and silk, Amitola has languid drape and just right amount of weight to give fabulous stitch definition.
