CROCHET KARA SHAWL FREE PATTERN
I’m so excited to show you my newest shawl design, the Crochet Kara Shawl!
This shawl is fancy & comfortable– ready to be worn everyday. I love the versatility shawls have – they can be worn in so many different ways and paired with lots of different outfits. I used a fun new yarn set from Delicious Yarns that I think you’re going to want to try!
I used only 2 colors of the new Pairings yarn set from Delicious Yarns and worked in some striping that gives a modern look moving from one color to the other. This technique would look beautiful with a solid yarn as well. I can’t wait to see what color combinations you make, I’m sure they’ll all be beautiful!
Pairings is a new yarn set from Delicious Yarns dyed in the most upbeat color palettes. All Pairings are dyed in a luscious 100% superwash merino base and come in three different weights Fingering (shown here), Sport and Worsted! I have attached the available color combinations below so that you can take a look!
All Delicious Yarns are hand dyed in California and I’m sure that if you browse their website you will find your favorite yarn! If you subscribe to the Delicious Yarn Newsletter you will receive two free patterns when you signup, plus a sweet surprise within a few weeks of signing up!
