Hello friends! Today I have a Juliette Shawl for you – an easy crochet shawl pattern, so get ready for lovely color changes and a bunch of cute stitches! I love simple designs, because they work up quickly and are very fun to make. This shawl uses very basic stitches and techniques, but adds some texture by playing with back post stitches and openwork.

Juliette is a friend of the family and she inspired this design. At first I was hesitant about choosing wool blend for this project, because I was worried it could turn out too heavy or scratchy. I can assure you now that it’s nothing of the above! Light and airy structure plays just lovely with delicate fuzziness of this yarn, and I think it’s actually lighter than any cotton crochet shawl I’ve made.

About the colorway

I fell in love with this colorway immediately, because it reminds me of delicate spring flowers. Dark burgundy, pinks and beige go very well together, but they are not your typical pink color palette.

When using ombre yarn cakes, be sure to think over which end you want to start with, because it impacts the final result so much! I decided to start with burgundy, so I can put more focus on bright shades. I also incorporated color changes into my design, such as openwork in specific places – it makes a great demarcation lines between darker hues and melange of lighter yarns!

before you start

Before you start, a couple of important things:

  • start from the top center of the Juliette Shawl.
  • we are turning the work over after each row.
  • 3 chains at the beginning of the row work as 1 dc (learn more about turning chain here!) and are included as such in the overall stitch count for the row (if given).

Let’s begin!

START:

magic ring

ROW 1:

chain 3, 2 dc, 2 ch, 3 dc

ROW 2 – ALL DOUBLE CROCHETS:

start of the row formula: chain 3, 1 dc inc

1 dc in each stitch until you reach the middle (in this row it’s 4 dc)

middle of the row formula: *2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc* all into chain space

1 dc in each stitch until you reach the last two stitches (in this row it’s 4 dc)

end of the row formula: 1 dc inc, 1 dc.

ROWS 3-10 – ALL DOUBLE CROCHETS:

proceed as in row 2.

ROW 11 – BACK POST + HOLES:

IMPORTANT! In this row we DON’T add stitches on the edges! Middle of the row formula stays the same, though. All double crochet stitches are BACK POST stitches, abbreviated to: bp dc.

chain 4, skip one

*1 bp dc, 1 ch, skip one* repeat until you reach the middle

middle of the row formula: *2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc* all into chain space

*1 ch, skip one, 1 bp dc* repeat until the end of the row, your last stitch should be 1 bp dc.
