It’s carnival time when you crochet this joyously colored shawl. It combines basic crochet stitches and a simple beaded edging to create a lightweight four-season wrap. The unique hexagonal shape that wraps your shoulders and stays in place without a shawl pin.

The Yarn and the Pattern
You’ll need about 740 yards [676 meters] of fingering weight (fine weight) yarn in the main color and about 30 yards [27 meters] in a contrasting color. The sample used Dancing Leaf Dyeworks Sock Hop (100% merino superwash wool, 373 yards [341 meters]), 2 skeins in Carnival for main color and leftover sock yarn in Cranberry for CC. You’ll also need some removable stitch markers and 339 size 6 glass seed beads.
I used a size G [4 mm] crochet hook to get gauge. The pattern is writing using American crochet terminology and includes both written and charted instructions.
The pattern was both tested and professionally tech edited. Everyone had a great time making it, and it looks good in many different colors! Start crocheting now!
