Free and Paid Crochet Summer Shawls for You to Make Pin

Variety of Techniques, Stitches, and Construction Methods

Shawls aren’t made in one way and there’s no right or wrong way to go about them. The construction methods include rectangular (equal opposite sides), triangular (with three points), and asymmetric (all sorts of shapes!). Crocheters can whip them up with lacier stitches and more spaces in between or as a solid fabric.

The main point is to have fun with it. You can use a cake to make a gorgeous variegated shawl or even small bits and bobs for a good ol’ stashbusting project. In this list, I’ve included a little bit of everything so you can get your creative gears turning as well.
