You’re in for a treat today. We have a SUPER fun crochet pattern for ya – Lilith by Kristina Smiley. It’s such a great pattern for using speckled or variegated yarns (try pairing one of those with a solid) and works up pretty quickly since it’s made in DK weight yarn.
Look at those fun stripes! You can follow the exact striping sequence we did or just wing it and change colors as you wish, pulling the yarn up the side as you go to avoid having to weave in a bajillion tails.
Notes From the Designer:
•An asymmetric right leaning triangle that grows as you go!
•Shawl is crocheted with a 2 row repeating pattern making it a perfect project for binge watching your favorite tv series episodes.
•Sample is worked with alternating stripes of two colors, but you can use solids or keep it simple with just one color, whatever you wish. Just be sure to alternate skeins if using hand-dyed yarn to keep your colors from pooling.
My inspiration for this design (and name) is a character from the book I am currently reading. The character, Lilith, starts off in the background as a small character, but grows bolder and more confident as her story develops. Like the character, this shawl grows as you crochet and continue adding more yarn. Have a ton of fun with your shawl and be sure to link your finished shawls to the pattern Ravelry page so we can enjoy them too!
The sample was made in our Alpaca Silk Dk yarn – so draping and soft and buttery with the softest glow. Colors are Mystic Topaz (3 skeins) and Restless (1 skein).
Anyways. Enough blabbering, eh?
