Ombre Shawl ... Free Crochet Pattern

This is definitely not your granny’s shawl! The gorgeous stitch texture and modern striping helps this shawl pair just as easily with your favorite pair of jeans as it does over a little black dress, and it can be easily customized to any size you like. You can follow the basic shawl crochet pattern below and customize your colors and striping to fit your taste or you can follow my striping pattern included at the end of this post. Enjoy!
