Cosmopolitan Shawl

Wrap yourself in texture!

A crochet wrap like no other

The design

Wrap yourself in texture with this eye-catching, textured crochet shawl!

The dense nature of the alpine stitch creates a thicker fabric that will keep you warm, while the faux-knit bands allow the shawl to fold perfectly into shape every time you wear it.

With a wingspan of almost 70″, you can wear it around your neck like a scarf, or resting around your shoulders to really show off all the details!

The pattern

This crochet triangle shawl is worked in turned rows, starting at the center and adding increases at the corners to further expand the shape. The fun and relaxing alpine stitch pattern is interlocked with wide, faux-knit bands made up of a combination of stitches that will keep your interest piqued. You’ll even learn a new stitch or two with the help of my photo-tutorials! For best results, this shawl needs to be blocked.
