Fruit Loops and Spiderwebs Shawl - Crochet Shawl Pattern
Reminiscent of the bright colors and shapes of the children’s cereal and also of the webby tendrils created by our arachnid friends, this shawl combines buttonhole shaping and mesh stitches for a modern-bohemian aesthetic.
The large, open shape of the finished shawl is perfect as a transitional layer: choose lighter shades for a springtime accessory or more moody shades for fall and winter. Throw it on with a jean jacket, cardigan, or let it dress up a simple tee or blouse.
Choose your favorite three colors for this project: a light, medium, and dark shade will look best.
This pattern has been tech edited and tested. Stitch counts are provided for every row, and notes on how to follow the pattern with abbreviations and terminology are included.
This is the sister pattern to the winterbird shawl.
