Crochet Harlequin Shawl Free Pattern

Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you the crochet Harlequin Shawl free pattern. I love this crochet project so much! This is a beautiful crochet project that is very easy to make for beginners and experts alike. I called this crochet shawl “The Harlequin Shawl” as it features many different colors, and I crocheted this pattern during the week of the French Mardi Gras.

The video tutorial for this project can be found here:

Crochet Harlequin Shawl Free Pattern: The Inspiration

As stated above, I crocheted this Harlequin Shawl during the French Mardi Gras week (which was last week). Mardi Gras has always been one of my favorite celebrations when I lived in France. Indeed, Mardi Gras is very important in France, and is a major celebration throughout the country.

I love the style of this wrap

During Mardi Gras, the Carnaval takes place, with everyone (especially in schools) dresses in fancy dress costumes and make up. The Harlequin character is majorly popular during the Carnaval, with it’s myriad of colors. I love multicolored shawls, as you can see from previous project such as The Valentina Shawl, or The Polina Half Circle Shawl.

I love lightweight crocheted shawls for the Spring and Summer. The Summer Sunset Shawl is a perfect example of this. The Vintage Flower Shawl is also a perfect example of a lightweight and delicate shawl.

Crochet Harlequin Shawl Free Pattern: The Yarn

And my new shawl features many many colors. Indeed, I crocheted this project using the ends of some of my skeins and yarn cakes. For this shawl I used 2 skeins of Sirdar Pattercake and a skein of Lion Brand’s Mandala Baby Cakes. The colors that I had left in my stash were just waiting to be used, and I will be listing the exact shades down below.

This pattern is perfect for beginners

At the moment, I am in the mindset of not wasting any yarn, and I decided that even if the remains of the yarn cakes I had weren’t matching, I would still use these. And I love the effect! However, you can use the same skeins of yarn cakes if you prefer. If this is the case, you will only be needing two yarn cakes such as Lion Brand’s Mandala or Mandala Baby, or Sirdar Pattercake of your choice. You will also need one skein of a plain cream yarn for the border.

I crocheted the Everlasting Love Shawl with Sirdar Pattercake yarn; The Cherry Blossom Shawl is also crocheted with Sirdar Pattercake yarn. Sirdar Pattercake is very similar to Lion Brand Mandala Baby Cakes. So you can substitute Sirdar Pattercake with Mandala Baby yarns. The Assymetrical Rainbow Shawl is crocheted with Mandala Baby yarn, and is so beautiful.

Crochet Harlequin Shawl Free Pattern: The Design

I love the design of this shawl so much! Indeed, this is a simple yet lovely design. The main part of the shawl is crocheted using a simple Double Crochet one row repeat. The large border is crocheted using a V stitch pattern that creates a lovely lacy effect. The last row is a shell stitch edging that adds a lot of dimension to the project.

The pattern is simple yet very feminine. The fact that all the colors are different, yet they look so beautiful crocheted in the same project. This crochet shawl is similar in the idea as a patchwork quilt. I’m so pleased that I managed to create this crochet project using scrap yarn too. I love the idea of not wasting any yarn, and I’m pleased that I could use up the last scraps of my yarn cakes.

The colors in this shawl are enchanting

The pastel colors are bright and beautiful. This shawl is very feminine and beautiful, and I feel the name “Harlequin Shawl” is perfect for this project! Let me know what you think of this new crochet project that I absolutely adore!

I used a simple plain cream yarn in a DK/ light 3 yarn to create the border. Indeed, I used Bernat Softee Baby yarn for this project for the border. As you know, I love Bernat Softee Baby so much! I used this yarn for this vintage vibes baby blanket. I also crocheted this Romantic Knot Infinity Wrap with Bernat Softee Baby yarn.
