Blank Space Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern

How crazy is it that June is almost over? I feel like time lately is going both slowly and quickly – is that possible? I guess it’s that the days are long but the weeks are short. As usual, I’ve been filling my extra time at home with lots of fun crochet projects. I’ve been on sort of a shawl kick lately, and I’m really excited to share this one with you!

First, let’s talk about the yarn. Have you tried out Wecrochet yet? They are the dedicated to crochet counterpart of Knitpicks. They carry all the same yarn, but also have fun crochet tools and patterns. It’s my favorite place to shop for yarn these days!

For this particular project I used their Bare Stroll Fingering and Stroll Gradient. The Stroll Gradient is really cool because it has long color changes and works almost as a true ombre yarn. That means you can get a fabulous fade effect without tons of ends to weave in! Win/win, right? I used the colorway Multiverse. It has such vibrant colors that really pop against the bare yarn. Both of these yarns are fingering weight, 75% Fine Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon. In other words – it’s sock yarn. I love using sock yarn for shawls because it has a fabulous drape that isn’t too heavy.

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
