There are times when I teach how to do a knit pattern on my YouTube channel and I think to myself, ‘hmmm, I should do something like this in crochet!’ Well, that is how this pattern started. I was teaching how to make the Brighten My Day shawl pattern and I knew that the new yarn by Red Heart, Hopscotch, would be GREAT and easily made into a similar shawl. So that is what I did. 
Anyway, below you will find the pattern, pictures of the sample shawl I made, and I a step-by-step video tutorial is coming soon. By the way, have you subscribed to my YouTube Channel yet?
So there you have it, now you know how this pattern came to be part of the many free patterns offered here at MarlyBird.com. I hope you find the pattern easy, the video helpful, and the finished product to your liking. Please share with me the shawl you make with this pattern, as I would love to see them. Tag me on social media #MarlyBird.

Lime Verbena Shawl [Free Pattern] Gauge

GAUGE is the measurement of the stitches and rows after you crochet them. Getting gauge means that you are getting the same numbers per inch as written in the pattern.
Hopscotch yarn: 3.25 sts per inch (per 2.54 cm) in single crochet. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
