This is my Sunset Crochet Boomerang Shawl and is a free crochet pattern. You will learn how to crochet a shawl in a boomerang shape. Furthermore, it features the beautiful and stylish Caron Cotton Cakes that may be still available at Michael’s Stores.
The Sunset Crochet Boomerang Shawl creates a unique crochet accessory that resembles the shape of a boomerang. It is created by increasing and decreasing on each row. This sounds way more complicated than it is!
Have you ever heard of a boomerang scarf? Basically, it’s just a scarf that resembles the shape and curve of a boomerang. The one downside is that it doesn’t come back to you when thrown!
However, the beautiful asymmetrical shape makes these scarves unique and fun. There are so many ways to wear them, too! The shape lends itself to be worn around your neck or shoulders.
For instructions on how to create a crochet boomerang scarf, please read below.
When buying the Caron Cotton Cakes, I knew I wanted to create something special with them. My first thought was a scarf, but no ordinary scarf. So, I thought a crochet boomerang shawl would be ideal to show off the bright and sunset-like colors in the Caron Cotton Cakes. These cheerful colors remind me of a beautiful sunset on a warm summer evening.
The crochet scarf pattern is easy and makes the project come alive quickly. Furthermore, crocheting with the Caron Cotton Cakes is such a delight as they move so smoothly through my Furls Crochet Hook like no other yarn. It is always a joy to work on a project when the tools are perfect.
Boomerang Shawl Crochet Pattern is Beginner Friendly
If you have never crocheted a scarf before then this pattern will be perfect, especially for a beginner. The scarf has all double crochet stitches and therefore works up very quickly. The pattern is designed to expand outwards in a boomerang-like fashion by using decreases and increases at the beginning and end of the rows.
This crochet boomerang shawl is loosely based on the filet crochet technique. It has alternating rows of open and closed mesh rows. The open mesh consists of creating open spaces using double crochet and chains. The closed mesh rows are plain double crochet stitches worked all across the previous row.
I have many more crochet scarf patterns on my website. See some of the few samples below.
To make it easier to understand, I also included a summary and tutorial video for this pattern. You can find it towards the end of the pattern. That should help clear up any confusion in case they arise.
