Unforgettable Lunar Crossings Shawl Free Crochet Pattern

The Lunar Crossings Shawl can be made in any colorway of Red Heart Unforgettable to get a gorgeous triangle shawl. For this one, I used the color Gossamer which has such lovely purple, lime and aqua throughout.

Technique: Regular Crochet

This weekend, I decided to stitch up a new version of my Lunar Crossings Shawl. Red Heart had recently sent me some “Unforgettable” yarn in the colorway Gossamer and I was excited to try it out.

Special Instructions

I originally made the Lunar Crossings Shawl in a finer weight. When I received this yarn, I wanted to try it out in the heavier weight yarn of Red Heart Unforgettable. Please follow the instructions below to make this variation to the original pattern which is also linked below.

To make this version, I used three full skeins of Unforgettable and an I-9 (5.5mm) hook. I had just enough to make a tassel for the bottom. I used every bit of the three skeins of delicious color and softness.

Thank you to Red Heart Yarns for providing yarn support for this project.

This pattern is based on my Lunar Crossings series. Click on one of the photos below to see the others.

Materials

Gauge

You want a nice lace with a nice drape. The project starts at the point and grows out, so trying to work to a particular gauge isn’t crucial.

Special Stitches

Long Single Crochet (long sc): Insert hook under the ch-6 sp from the row below, yarn over, pull loop through, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook. You will be joining together the ch-6 sp and the ch-4 sp above it.

Shell (sh): In same chain space, [dc, ch 1] 3 times, dc.

Fan (fan): In same chain space, [dc, ch 1] 7 times, dc.

V-Stitch (v-st): [Dc, ch 2, dc] in same chain space.

Cluster (cl): Yo, insert hook in sp indicated, yo, pull lp through, yo, pull through 2 lps on hook, [yo, insert hook in same ssp, yo, pull lp through, yo, pull through 2 lps on hook] twice, yo, pull through 4 lps on hook.

Note

Project is made from the point with increasing on each row. It is a standard triangle shape. It can be made in any yarn type or weight, with appropriate hook. Work any number of rows for the size desired.

A gradient yarn cake is used which means that the color changes you see are made with the yarn itself. If you prefer to substitute yarn, you can use whatever color(s) you like and change colors as you desire, or alternatively, use one solid color throughout.

Some row instructions will include a stitch count. On those rows, everything after the colon is a stitch count, not an instruction.
