The Kembleford Shawl crochet pattern is an easy two-row stitch pattern that makes for mindless-yet-engaging crochet. Worked from side to side, the easy cluster-stitch pattern creates a lacy wrap for all seasons. The trapezoidal shape hugs the shoulders and drapes elegantly around the body.
When you want to dress with aplomb, the lacy Kembleford Shawl is your go-to accessory.

The Father Brown Stories by G.K. Chesterton were the inspiration for the name of the shawl.
Tonal fingering weight yarn with long color changes creates the beautiful color work, with no effort on your part!
The yarn used in the sample is KnitPicks Chroma Fingering Weight in color Vermont. Chroma Fingering is a blend of 70% superwash wool and 30% nylon. It comes in balls of 3.5 oz [100 g], 396 yd [362 m]). It took 2 balls to make the 50″ [127 cm] long shawl. If you want a longer shawl, buy a third ball.
The downloadable pdf pattern has both text and charted instructions. It uses American crochet terminology and has been test-stitched and professionally tech-edited.
The stitch pattern itself, while unusual, is easy to learn. You won’t need to keep referring to the pattern once you understand it.
