The Summer Sunset Shawl is an easy, rectangular crochet shawl pattern with the cutest pompom edging!
This free pattern is written for one size and uses a lightweight #2/sport yarn with a gorgeous gradient. A solid colour would look great too.
The shawl body has a simple two row repeat, so once you have worked the first couple of rows, it’s easy peasy after that 🙂
The orange and purple hues reminded me of only one thing – a summer sunset, making this pretty easy to find a name for this pattern!
Crochet Wrap Sizing
This crochet shawl pattern is written for one size, and measures approx. 17.5″ x 60″ / 152cm x 45cm.
Use a #1/Fingering or #2/Sport weight yarn in a cotton or cotton blend for a great drape and a breathable fabric – perfect for summer evenings!
For my wrap, I used one skein of Rico Creative Cotton Dégradé in Pink-Orange – a blend of 50% cotton and 50% acrylic.
Crochet Shawl Construction
This wrap is worked from side to side. You first work a pompom row, followed by the shawl body, followed by the second pompom row.
The shawl body features a simple two row repeat, so once you have worked the first few rows, you can stop counting your stitches 🙂
And if you use a yarn cake (as I did), you can simply keep going until you are nearly at the end of your yarn!
Note: the pattern PDF includes a handy stitch diagram of the pompom row and stitch pattern.
