Free crochet pattern : It’s a Sunny Day Shawl

I am very happy to share the free crochet pattern of my new shawl design : It’s a Sunny Day Shawl. I used Scheepjes Softfun and Softfun Denim for this design: the yarn is very fluffy, refreshing cold in the summer, and warm and cuddly on colder days or evenings. It is available in lots of wonderfull colours, so it was hard to choose 🙂  It is a perfect cotton-acrylic blend, soft, and with some natural stretch in it, and it is very easy washable in the washing machine. I loved worked with this yarn.

You can purchase the yarn for this shawl at the international retailers :

Deramores : Scheepjes Softfun    and  Scheepjes Softfun Denim  

Woolwarehouse : Scheepjes Softfun and Scheepjes Softfun Denim ,

Paradisefibers

For The Netherlands and Belgium, you can find an overview of all the shops here : shops

Info

– Crochet pattern for a large triangular shawl. The entire shawl is worked topdown, this means you start at the center, and your shawl gets wider and wider, by making increases at the sides and in the center.
The size is very easily adjustable.
The body of the shawl is worked with crème, and the stitch pattern is easy to memorise.
The large edging is divided in 2 parts (sizes are also easy adjustable) : the first part has large repetitive shells and the second part lots of small ch-spaces.
By using several different colours the result will be wonderfull.

– Yarn : Scheepjeswol Softfun and Softfun denim / 60% cotton, 40% acrylic, 1 skein = 50gr = 140m / dk weight yarn.
Body of the shawl : Sortfun shade 2426 (crème) : 3 skeins
Edging of the shawl : Sortfun denim : 1 skein shade 503 (fuchsia), 1 skein shade 500 (turquoise), 1 skein shade 504 (rose) and 0,5 skein shade 501 (dark jeans blue).
You need 900 m of yarn for the entire shawl.

– Crochet hook : 4 mm

– Used stitches : magic ring, chain (ch), slipstitch (slst), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), work 2 double crochet together (2dctog), cluster (CL), picot (p), stitch marker (M). I use US crochet terms.
– Cluster : 2dctog + 1ch + 2dctog + 1ch + 2dctog
– picot : work 3ch, followed by 1sc in first out of 3ch.

– Gauge : not crucial.

– You also need : scissors, tapestry needle to weave in ends, ruler, mat and pins for blocking, stitch marker

– Crochet charts : 2 charts are added at the end of the pattern : 1 for the body of the shawl and 1 for the edging. (printing -tip for the charts : change you printer settings to landscape, before printing the charts, your charts will be bigger and clearer).

    Definitely … I will make this….We have some cotton mix yarn that will be nice…..Also have baby cashmere I’d like to try… Thanks for sharing this….

  2. Lori says:

    I made mine with worsted weight #4 yarn in various fall colors. It is warm. This is a versatile piece that can be used as an oversized cowl wrap, sarong, etc…I am going to make it again but this time I will use the DK weight yarns and make two and sew them together at the top to make it a poncho. Love his pattern. Looked difficult but actually very simple. Beautiful.

    Dear Annelies, i love this pattern very much.
    I have a very fine yarn – Baby Alpacca with Silk. There are many colours in my drawers: white, red, blue etc.
    I will try it with this kind of yarn – do you think that it will be good for this?
    Thank you!
    Have a good day!
    Marianne
