"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." - Sarah @ Ned & Mimi
"This shawl uses a dk weight 3 yarn. Specifically Luna by Premier Yarns. The main stitch used in this pattern is called the Y-stitch. This stitch is what makes this a lacy shawl design." - Janet @ Simply Hooked by Janet
"The Reverie Shawl will keep you warm and cozy as the temperatures start to dip. This free crochet pattern uses a cotton blend yarn and is worked from the bottom up. Easy repeats make The Reverie Shawl the perfect project during binge sessions." - Cindy @ North East Mama

"Though this crochet shawl pattern might look intricate and complicated, it’s actually super simple! The tapestry crochet motifs are made with half double crochets, and only involve using two colors at a time that you switch between. It is made with a basic crochet triangle scarf pattern, that is made more intricate with the color work patterns. This makes a great advanced beginner tapestry crochet pattern, and it is a great sampler to practice your skills!" - Claire @ E'Claire Makery
"The Summer Shawlette is a lightweight, triangle ‘mini-shawl’; perfect for pairing with a crisp white shirt. The zig-zag stitch pattern adds a modern twist to a traditional lace crochet shawl." - Sarah @ Ned & Mimi
"Vintage Peach is a light and airy One Skein Crochet Triangle Shawl. The pattern is simplicity at its best! Once you have the first few rows established, it is basically a one-row repeat pattern. When you have completed your shawl, it is the essential blocking that turns it into this beautiful delicate creation! Add a touch of cream for the edging, and you have a Vintage inspired crochet accessory to be proud of!" - Carmen @ Annie Design Crochet

"This shawl is a take on the ever popular corner to corner (c2c) crochet technique and it’s so simple to make this soft lace-look with only a few stitches. The most important part of c2c is to know what to do when you turn in order to make the new extra ‘square’, the rest is a doddle!" - Hannah @ HanJan Crochet
"This light and lace shawl is worked from the top down, and you can easily adapt the pattern to any size. You can wear this design all year round.

"The Mehr shawl is made using the beautiful Scheepjes Stardust yarn and the delicate lace pattern gives it a lovely drape.

"This pattern works up quickly because I used a really large hook. The chunky yarn, while fluffy, is still airy and light enough for spring and summer use.
