One garment you didn’t know you needed until now? The Wanderlust Shawl! This shawl is warm, it has pockets, and is perfect to wear over your favorite top. It’s a quick one to crochet, too!
The Wanderlust Shawl
This pocketed shawl crochet pattern is lightweight but substantial enough to offer extra warmth whether you’re poking around the house, headed to the supermarket, or gallivanting across the country. Because I love to travel, and because I’ll be taking this shawl with me everywhere we go, I decided to name it The Wanderlust Shawl. Did I mention it has pockets?! 😀
This shawl almost feels like a poncho with the warmth it provides. The open stitch work means that this works up quickly and the drape is to die for! I love how it stays on your shoulders rather than constantly falling down. So sleek and so chic!
From the front it almost looks as if it is a slouchy sweater and in the back it is just long enough to cover the waistline. I’m drooling over this yarn choice.
For this shawl pattern we are using Twill yarn from WeCrochet, the sister site to Knit Picks. This yarn is a gorgeous worsted weight, 100% Superwash Merino Wool. The sheen of this yarn is perfection and it feels so soft against your skin. It is bouncy, amazingly soft, and it is machine washable! We are pairing this yummy yarn with a 7mm crochet hook to create nice, open stitches that have a beautiful squish factor.
