Free Crochet Pattern...Autumn Skies Shawl!

The Autumn Skies Shawl is a gorgeous lacy shawl celebrating the amazing skies of the autumn season. Swathes of bright blue, golden yellow, and shadowy browns look like a setting sun in the cool landscape. The lace stitch is worked up in easy stitches and uses one full yarn cake of Mandala. Want an super long Shawl with more drape? Simple use a second yarn cake and repeat the pattern row!

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links: 


Ch 7
Row 1: In the 5th ch from the hook work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc). Skip a ch, the in the last ch, work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc).
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in each ch 1 space from the previous row (center of each fan). Work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) into the turning chain space.
Repeat row 2 until the shawl is desired size or until you run out of yarn (mine was approximately 24 inches tall from bottom point to top edge).  Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain.

Note: To make your shawlette larger and wider, simply work more rows of the pattern.

  1. What do you think about adding two tassels to this?

  2. I love this pattern and I am making it for a friend. I do have a question, my work at the top keeps curling over. I have ripped it out and started over 3 times and followed your video step by step. In looking at your finished project, I don't see the top turning under. At this point, I just hope it will look OK when I am done, as I really want to give this to her. TIA
