Crochet The Wild at Heart Shawl
Hi everyone! Today I am bringing to you a tutorial on how to crochet The Wild at Heart Shawl. It is a simple yet stunning crochet project.
I am back today with a new pattern that I am very excited to share with you. Indeed, the inspiration for this very simple shawl resides in my passion for the 19th Century. This was the century I studied during my Master’s Degree in France.

A 19th Century kind of Sparkly Shawl
Loving anything that has to do with this century, and I felt compelled to make a V shaped shawl with a very simple and dense stitch (made of half double crochets) reminiscent of the Victorian Era. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making this pattern and tutorial. The colours I used made me think of Autumn which is soon to come. I am leaving my usual pastel colours to rest for now.
The Wild at Heart Shawl is a very easy and simple pattern to crochet!
A simple pattern made of Half Double Crochets
This project is made up with a simple repeat pattern of Half Double Crochets, which make it a very easy and quick project to work up. It is the perfect project if you are a beginner crocheter, and if you are an expert crocheter, it can be a fun pattern to make too!
The sparkly yarn I used is Sirdar Colourwheel Dazzle, and it is absolutely stunning, and a delight to work with. I cannot wait to crochet with this lovely yarn very soon, and I know this will be soon.
Crochet The Wild at Heart Shawl with Sirdar Colourwheel
For this tutorial I used only one skein of Sirdar Colourwheel Dazzle in Wild at Heart. It is absolutely stunning, and this makes up a lovely sized shawl. Nonetheless, I am planning on buying another skein as I would like my shawl to be a little wider than it is now. You can make it as big or small as you like which is really the beauty of crochet!
A Sparkly kind of shawl
I absolutely adore the fact that this shawl is sparkly. I truly think it makes the already beautiful colours, even more dazzling. This is the perfect accessory to bring to a soirée, and stand out. You can also wear it around your neck as a scarf, so it is quite a versatile accessory.
