FREE Crochet Shawl Pattern By Marly Bird

To start off 2018 I designed a crochet shawl pattern, the Lime Verbena Shawl. Worked up in one of Red Heart’s new yarns with a easy stitch pattern I am sure that you will love this cozy shawl for your cold winter months.

Hopscotch Yarn has been discontinued:

Since the release of this pattern the amazing Hopscotch has been discontinued. However, here are some other yarns that would look GREAT in this pattern:

Brava Tweed Worsted – WeCrochet
Chroma Twist Worsted – WeCrochet
Heatherly Worsted – WeCrochet
