Chevron Boulevard Shawl

My newest design – the Chevron Boulevard Shawl – is out now in Inside Crochet Magazine Issue 128. It’s such a fun shawl to make, and to wear!

Here you can see the Chevron Boulevard shawl all spread out, so you have a good idea of what it looks like. It’s quite big, 160 x 160cm! Because of the generous size there are many different ways in which you can wear this shawl.

Where to get the pattern

The Inside Crochet Issue 128 went on sale last week, and is available in various UK newspaper agents or online as a digital version. You can also subscribe to Inside Crochet from all over the world!

I am always blown away by the photography and styling in Inside Crochet, and it’s so fun to see your own design captured so beautifully! In the photo above, the Chevron Boulevard shawl is worn wrapped around the neck.

You can also drape the shawl over your shoulders for a more casual look. See how the shawl is light coloured on the left, but a dark teal on the right? That’s because I used a gradient yarn for this shawl, and striped it with a solid yarn.

The yarn I used is Scheepjes Whirl (the gradient yarncake) and Scheepjes Maxi Sugar Rush (a solid cotton yarn). Combining the two doesn’t just create a lovely striped effect, but also adds a solid-and-sheer effect because the Maxi yarn is much thinner. Because we’re using the same size hook throughout, that gives the thinner yarn a more translucent look.
