Crescent Web Shawl
When you think of Halloween what are a few of the things that come to mind first?
One thing that comes to mind for me when thinking about Halloween is a spider web.
I had 2 colors of hand dyed yarn that I paired up that I needed the perfect pattern for. With the one color being variegated in color I knew that a lacy design may look best for that.
So with these fun Halloween colors I finally brainstormed up a lacy crochet shawl design perfect for a Halloween theme.
After a few attempts at stitch combinations I finally landed on this set of stitches to create this awesome lacy web-like crochet crescent shawl.
About this crochet crescent shawl pattern
I believe that this crochet crescent shawl pattern would look fabulous in many different yarns and colors.
The lacy stitches will look great with any variegated, speckled or solid color yarn. You do not need to keep it a Halloween them shawl. Try white, gray or blues and make it into a Winter themed crescent shawl.
The specific yarn used for this shawl is from Thread Head Fiber Arts. 2 skeins of Twist Sock #1 fingering weight base were used but any sock base would work great for this.
1 skein (335 yards) are used for color A which is called Scarecrow. 1 skein (315 yards) are used for color B which is called Ochre.
But you can totally crochet this pattern using a weight #2 or weight #3 yarn as well. 1 tester used Lion Brand Mandala yarn which is a DK weight yarn and the results were amazing.
If substituting a different yarn, adjust hook size to achieve the drape you like with your chosen yarn.

This crochet shawl pattern is considered an Intermediate level pattern.
Stitches and techniques used include single crochet, double crochet, chains, following instructions for a special increase stitch, adding a new color to start a row.
This pattern beings with 8 setup rows and is then a 2-row repeat. But the row instructions themselves are a bit long so they should be followed carefully.
This shawl will look best when it is wet blocked or steam blocked. I opted to give mine a steam block because I felt that a full water block would stretch the stitches more than I wanted
