Hey, beautiful. Oh my WORD. We have a new pattern for you and I’m positively gushing and drooling over this one.
It’s called Jazzy Barista by the amazing designer: Kristina Smiley
She designs many of our patterns for us and is truly remarkable. She has a knack for making patterns simple and delightful and easy to follow.
This beautiful crochet triangle shawl pattern is a pleasure to work up. It features adorable tassels which are all the rage right now. It truly makes me want to grab a novel, rush to the nearest coffee shop, snuggle in and read for hours. How does it make you feel?
There are solid panels and lacy panels. For a fun look, we opted for speckled yarn. This is a joy to dye up and we love how much our customers love these speckled shades! As we have thousands of formulas (no joke), colors come and go so these may or not be in stock when you click over. However, you can always request shades by writing us on the Contact Form here if you like! Just let us know exact yarn colorway and yarn base and our happy team will assist you as best as we can.
We used Woodland Song and Freshly Ground, both dyed onto our Dewy Dk yarn. I chose our Dewy Dk as it’s buttery soft and has a major SQUISH factor. You’ll just wanna squeeze and squish it all day, ‘er day. It’s a blend of superwash merino wool (can be machine-washed but I truly recommend hand-washing all of our yarns for longevity of your beautiful, hand-crocheted project), nylon for longevity and strength and a touch of silk for the hintiest hint of glow. All of our yarns are custom spun with high-quality fibers, just for our company and hand-dyed here locally in North Carolina. All of our DK yarn is here.
I know what you’re thinking… what if I want to substitute another yarn? The simplest way is to use another DK weight yarn. Ours is about 250 yards per 4 oz/115 g skein.
Now, truly, worsted weight yarn will work as well. If you’re buying your yarn in a larger craft store, worsted weight is often denoted with a number 4 weight.
If you feel comfortable with crochet, you can absolutely use other yarn weights. Try sport weight, keep everything else the same (hook size, etc) and you will have a gorgeous shawl as well. It may be a bit more drapey/light/airy.
Try fingering weight and lowering the hook a size or two and you’ll have a very lovely drapey shawl.
You can hold lace weight or fingering weight double, stick with the same hook size as required in the pattern and stitch away! So many options.
My motto is, as long as you like the look of it, you’re golden. Stitch away, my love!
There are so many ways to wear this beautiful crocheted shawl pattern. Since it’s a triangle shawl, my favorite way is to put the point in front and wrap the ends around my neck. Those little tassels really look adorable hanging off the front!
See what I mean? Just wearing this thing made me so happy! 🙂
