How would you describe your go-to style for an afternoon at the playground? If you're ready to switch out that faded sweatshirt for something chic and stylish, then the Sidewalk Shawl is for you! Light and breezy, this comfortable crochet shawl will add instant sophistication to any outfit, even if it's just jeans and a T-shirt. You'll love how the crochet shell stitch is used to create a beautiful and dramatic look, too, while the fringe adds just a bit of drama to the overall look. Just keep in mind this intricate crochet pattern is ideal for those at the intermediate level.

NotesNotes: One pattern repeat consists of a pineapple pattern at its widest and the surrounding ch-spaces and shells. Shawl is worked from lower edge upwards. Work in stitches and ch-spaces indicated only, skip all other stitches and ch-spaces.

I love this pattern! I made my first shawl, and this pattern encourages me to do more than towels and throws.

I really go crazy about large shawls, oversized ponchos. I cannot ignore this Sidewalk Shawl. I can imagine myself wearing this on a chilly day, to the park, to the mall, wherever. It is so chic, so very fashionista. I like the lacey stitches used here, the size of the shawl and the tassles. This is one for my queue. Can't wait to make this beautiful shawl. A lot of moms, aunts and grandmas will surely like this.

I have not learned the art of reading diagrams to crochet yet, but I would so love to learn. Thank goodness the designer has included written directions and a diagram in her instructions. Looks like she took great care and gave very detailed instructions on how to make her lovely sidewalk shawl. This is a lovely pattern.

A stunning shawl that I simply have to make for myself! It looks so good with denims and will look equally good with more formal wear too. Love the color but it wont look good on me so I will have to decide on a color. I will also do a small practice piece to check that I understand the pattern. If not my crochet guru, Filly, will no doubt be able to assist. Yay for Filly!

I'm in love with the boho look of this shawl. It looks so intricate and beautiful! I definitely want to add this to my wardrobe this spring.
