Crochet Summer Sunset Shawlette Pattern: A Fun Project

I absolutely love shawls, as I find them so relaxing to crochet and make. They are easy in a way, as they usually grow if you just follow a simple pattern repeat. Recently I purchased Rico Creative Cotton Degrade Lucky 8 yarn, which is a lovely yarn for Summer projects. I remember using this yarn to crochet a little shawlette back in 2018, when I was pregnant with my little boy. I remember loving this yarn so much, and I recall it was at the time discontinued, which was such a shame.

However, the other day as I was browsing on an online yarn shop, I saw this yarn was back in stock. It seems like it has been rebranded slightly, however it is almost identical. What seems to have changed are the color choices. I chose a shade that is so pretty and reminds me of a Summer Sunset, hence the name of the project! When I saw this project was back in stock, I knew I had to order a skein right away.

When I crocheted The Fantine Shawl, I used Rico Designs Creative Degrade Wool, which is the wool version of this cotton yarn. I absolutely love it too!

I was not disappointed with this yarn. It is a fine yarn, referred to as 4 ply or sport yarn. It is 50% acrylic, 50% cotton, and is very soft to the touch. This is such a perfect yarn for a Summer shawl project as it is so light and in cotton. The variegation of colors is simply stunning. In this case, I purchased shade Pastel 002, which is absolutely stunning.

I love this shawlette so much!

If you cannot find this specific yarn in your local yarn store, you can easily substitute it with Hobbi Azalea yarn, or World Of Yarn’s Honolulu yarns. You can also substitute with your favorite yarn even if it is of a different weight and size. Just make sure you switch up your crochet hook to match your chosen yarn.

Crochet Summer Sunset Shawlette Pattern: The Inspiration

At the moment, I love to crochet shawls. They are so relaxing, and are so popular too. I love how they just grow and suddenly you have a beautiful and feminine accessory. I had wanted to crochet a fine and delicate shawlette for a long time, and decided this yarn would be perfect for the new Spring/Summer season.

The colors of this project are so beautiful

It is no secret that I love pink and pastels. So this yarn was perfect for a Summer shawlette. I have called this project a shawlette rather than shawl as it is slightly smaller than a shawl. It is actually quite large, so perfect to wrap around your shoulders or neck in the Spring and Summer.

The shades of this wrap were perfect for this new season, and reminded me of a Summer Sunset. I just love the variegation of pastel colors, and I find the shell stitch to be so dainty, yet easy to crochet.

Let me know if you make this shawlette, I always love to know which projects you make.
