Crochet The Summer Love Shawl Free Pattern

Hi everyone, this week I will be showing you how to crochet The Summer Love Shawl (free pattern). This project is beautiful and feminine, and is perfect for beginners. Easy and fun to crochet, this shawl is perfect for the Spring and Summer. It is lightweight and breezy, and features a lovely filet crochet pattern.

Crochet The Summer Love Shawl Free Pattern: The Inspiration

The inspiration for this Summer Love shawl came to me a few weeks ago. Indeed, I felt really inspired to crochet a breezy and light weight project. I also wanted this project to be fun and easy, so I did not want to crochet a too complicated stitch that required thinking. This shawl is the result of a few nights relaxing in front of some good videos or movies, and I am so pleased with the result! Indeed, this very simple pattern actually looks a lot more complex than it actually is.

These colors are so pretty

Shawls and wraps are some of my favorite items to crochet, and I do love to make these. It seems I could consistently crochet shawls and never get bored! I crocheted a vintage prayer shawl a few weeks ago, and I love how it turned out! It is also a very soothing and interesting project to crochet. I have to admit, I can’t wait to get started on yet another shawl or wrap design.

Two simple row repeats create this unique pattern. One row is a full row of Double Crochets, and the next is an alternation of Double Crochets and spaces. This creates a very airy and whimsical shawl that is perfect for the Spring and Summer.

Crochet The Summer Love Shawl Free Pattern: The Yarn

The yarn used for this project also accentuates the airiness of the design. Indeed, I used Lion Brand’s Mandala Baby yarn for this shawl. This yarn is so soft and smooth, it glides through my fingers. It comes in various different shades, and for this project I used shade Narnia.

Lion Brand Mandala Baby yarn comes in so many beautiful shades, I can never choose which one to use. A year ago, I made The Polina Half Circle Wrap with this yarn, and I absolutely love how it turned out! It is one of my favorite projects to date, and I highly recommend crocheting it if you are inspired to crochet shawls and wraps.

This shawl is perfect if you are a beginner

A few weeks ago, I crocheted a Crescent Semi Circular shawl with Mandala Baby yarn, and I absolutely love this project too! As stated previously, shawls and wraps are so much fun to make. I enjoy these designs because they are so soothing to crochet for the soul. At the moment, I have quite a few crochet projects on the go. These projects, which will be released in a few weeks time, are for a cardigan and two jumpers (am I the only person who loves to crochet sweaters and cardigans in the Summer?).

I hope you enjoy this new tutorial, which is perfect for beginners. Let me know if you made this project in the comments below. If you are looking for more crochet projects for the Summer, I can recommend crocheting this easy Coachella inspired headband. It is a super easy and quick project, perfect for Summer.
