Wow – it’s been a minute since I posted a free pattern! It has been a busy summer, and I haven’t been crocheting quite as much as I’d like to. We got a new puppy – Cosmo – and he keeps the whole family busy! When I do get a minute to pick up my hooks, I seem to be drawn to crocheting shawls. The Diamond Grid Wrap is a fun one I made with WeCrochet Galileo yarn.
I love making triangle scarves. They are so classic! Of course, in summer they can be heavy if you don’t use a lace pattern or a light yarn. I loved the idea of mesh look that was nicely defined and graphic. I played around with stiches and finally came up with this simple two row repeat. What I really love about this design is you can keep increasing as much as you want to make the shawl bigger if you’d like.
For this design, I used WeCrochet Galileo in one of their new colorways – Hesper. Isn’t it gorgeous? I love a soft purple! Galileo is such a fun yarn, I used it in the past to make my Jules Poncho – one of my favorite ever makes. The yarn is 50% Bamboo and 50% Merino Wool; it’s silky smooth and comes in a really sophisticated selection of colors. You’ll need four balls for the Diamond Grid Wrap.

This pattern is “forever free”, meaning I am not selling a PDF version of it. It’s so beginner friendly, I feel like hosting it on my blog is a good idea. But if you’d like to check out some of my more advanced patterns, or try some new shawls, you can shop at the links below.
The entire free pattern is below, I hope you love it!

Row 3: Sc 2, ch 2, sk 2, sc 2, fsc 4, ch 2, turn. (8 sc)
Row 4: Dc 2, *ch 2, sk 2, dc 2*, repeat from * across, ch 1, turn. (6 dc)

Your top edge will be wavy. At this point, you have two options; you can leave it that way (totally fine!) or add a straight edge. If you’d like to add a straight edge, connect yarn with a slst in the upper right corner on the RS.
Row 1: *Ch 4, slst to ch 2 sp*, repeat from * across, slst in corner, fasten off.
Wet block your shawl to the specified measurements. Weave in all ends.
