This simple crochet shawl will make a gorgeous addition to your spring wardrobe. The color palette for this shawl was inspired by the gorgeous pale blue shades of the forget-me-not, a native Irish wildflower. The name of the flower conjures up feelings of romance and I think that this shawl would add a romantic touch to any outfit.
I made this shawl for myself but I think I’m actually going to go and make another as a Mother’s Day gift for my mom!
The shawl pattern features just a 2 row repeat so it’s really a perfect pattern for beginners. And the size is 100% customizable – just keep going until you reach the size that you want!
You can follow the stripe sequence that I used (there’s a full-color chart below), or go rogue and let your creativity flow 🙂

I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK for my shawl; it is available in over 50 shades so you are sure to find something that you like. Any DK/#3/lightweight yarn would work great though.

- The shawl is worked from top left point.
- Each row will add one stitch to the stitch count.
- As you increase, the top edge might start to curve slightly; this is completely fine and will stretch out as the shawl gets larger.
- To make the shawl larger simply keep adding rows until you reach your desired size!
- You will always change color along the top edge of the shawl. Cut working yarn at each color change.
- Ch 1 at the start of each row does not count as a stitch
- Stitch counts are given in [ ] at the end of each row, and include ch-1 sps.
