Daydreamer Shawl. Crochet Pattern.

I don’t know about you but I fell in love with ALL the fade shawls that knitters were making and wished I could knit so that I could make one too. I have even started learning to knit but honestly crochet is my first love and I knew I had to design one for all my crochet friends out there!

The Daydreamer Shawl is the answer to my obsession with the kite shaped fade shawl and I can’t wait to see what colours you’ve been daydreaming about.

This shawl starts with just 3 chains. That’s right - 3! 
So no long starting chain that you have to count and stitch into. Just 3 and you’re off and running, or rather crocheting.

But because I know not everyone wants a ginormous 2.4m long shawl made from fingering weight yarn, I have also designed this to work with DK weight yarn and make a smaller scale scarf. Why? Because I love you (and my son really wanted one too).

So are you ready to make your daydreams a reality?

See the hashtag #daydreamercrochetshawl for some inspiration.
