This simple shawl is one of the prettiest in my closet and it’s fairly easy to make! It uses a variety of basic stitches to create an eye-catching wrap that you can wear day or night. It’s also become the most popular crochet shawl on the blog.
Use it as a cover-up, mini blanket, wrap, or gift it as a prayer shawl.
See the full free pattern below, or you may choose to purchase the ad-free printable version from my Etsy shop HERE. I’ve updated the pattern as I’m suggesting some other yarns since the Lion Brand Lowtide was discontinued. Read on!
Up until this point, I really loved both the Santa Monica Bias Wrap and the Wanders Wrap the most of any of the crocheted shawls from the blog. But this Summertide Wrap has to be the current winner. 🙂
What color would you make your wrap? I love this soft pastel, but I can see it in so many fun colors options. I’m a sucker for cream (which you could do with Lion Brand Comfy Cotton) and could also see it as a summer beauty in Lion Brand Mandala!
One of my favorite aspects of this wrap is the DRAPE! It’s flowy, loose, and so comfortable to wear. You won’t get bored with the stitching, but it also isn’t crazy difficult. It’s the perfect mix of a relaxing pattern, but it will still keep your brain slightly involved. LOL!
What Yarn Do I use To Crochet This Shawl?
Originally I used Lion Brand Lowtide Yarn, but it’s been discontinued unfortunately! However, the great thing about this shawl is that you can use ANY worsted weight yarn that you like! Try Lion Brand Jeans for a super soft wrap, or Lion Brand Comfy Cotton for a little more structure and similarity to the Lowtide’s drape.
I wouldn’t even hesitate to try a light #3 yarn on this shawl. Especially for those of you who line in a warm climate.
