From Cold Weather Crochet: "The way this yarn is made results in a wonderful bounce that really makes the crochet cables three- dimensional. Striped shawls are visually appealing but adding solid-colored cables to the majority of the body makes a perfect combination."
There’s nothing quite like being able to accessorize with something you made by hand, can cuddle into, and look extremely chic at the same time. Use this free crochet pattern to learn how to crochet a shawl complete with stunning stripes and a unique design. This crochet pattern can be crocheted with or without stripes, allowing you to customize the stunning shawl pattern to crochet for your very own wardrobe. Perfect for jazzing up a plain tee and keeping you toasty while hanging out during a chilly or winter day, this free shawl pattern will have you yearning for more yarn wear.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I really like the pattern. I have a few projects under my belt and I believe that I can pull this off. Hardest decision, what color?

Although the finished shawl is quite impressive, I do not think I could read this pattern for any length of time before going bonkers. Wow, that is a long, long pattern to read, row by row! That is something that I steer clear of. No offense to the designer. But you must have a ton of patience.

If I didn't know better, I would say this Cabled Shawl Crochet Pattern is actually knitted. I love the texture and the color choices for this article of clothing. However with this project being labeled as intermediate (more live advanced) I don't think I will be adding this to my wardrobe.

I believe some of the pattern is missing. Under "Striped Pattern" Direction is given for row 1 and all odd-numbered rows. what about row and so on??

yes, I am seeing the same thing. Where are the instructions for the even numbered rows on the striped section? From the looks of it, it repeats the same as odd, but I can't be sure. There also appears to be a border, which isn't included in the instructions.

This shawl is absolutely gorgeous! The colors are also pretty amazing. I wouldn't change a thing. Now, if only I can convince my friend to make it for me because it looks like it might take some time to complete.

I'm in love with this pattern!! Gorgeous colors, gorgeous cut, just absolutely beautiful. I feel like I should be walking around the Irish countryside in this shawl!
