Ombre Shawl

Ombre Shawl

Varying widths of off white, grey and black come together to work up this Ombre Shawl, producing a gorgeous blend of color. As the designer says, "this is definitely not your granny’s shawl! The gorgeous stitch texture and modern striping help this shawl pair just as easily with your favorite pair of jeans as it does over a little black dress, and it can be easily customized to any size you like." This shawl is perfect for summer nights, when the temperatures drop without the sun, and can easily be worn into the fall as a light layering piece. If neutral shades aren't your style, work this crochet shawl up with shades of your favorite color, or mix and match hues to create a shawl that's uniquely you.

I just love the look of this Ombre shawl! And in winter it is going to look just stunning with one of the more formal outfits I have for client meetings. And it is going to be super cozy and warm too, It also just so happens that I already have the perfect yarns for it so I am good to go!

I would totally make this using my favorite Lion Brand Mandala yarn. Takes the guess work out of picking the colors. This very modern and artsy looking shawl is actually started in a corner and increased out so that you get a diagonal stripe I am really going to have to try this for myself. I have been admiring this type of technique for some time now. Thanks for the pattern!

Usually to get an Ombre effect you would use a purchased yarn with the Ombre pattern built in, however sometimes they are not the color choices you desire. This Ombre Shawl pattern gives the stripping sequence, row by row and color by color. You choose your own Ombre colors. I love it.

This pattern is definitely going on my to do list! I love the color scheme and the pattern itself looks so interesting! My sisters birthday is coming up soon and this would be the perfect gift for her she loves these colors and is always because of her Fiber Myalgia. I cannot wait to get this project going.

The link for the Ombre Shawl pattern goes to the Petals To Picots blog. There are pictures of both the front and the back of the shawl posted for us to see how the shawl looks in its entirety. For those that crochet by diagrams, there is also one posted there. I am just learning how to follow a diagram and now how a new appreciation for those that also include this with their pattern.

Wow, I love the look of this Ombre Shawl. The colors go so good together and the pattern is so well written and easy to follow. If you can single crochet and chain one, you can make this one. I like the look the two stitches make and this pattern is some what of a corner to corner type of design, but not. I'm looking forward to making this beautiful shawl that will be great for this fall here in Michigan. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
