Crochet this easy Jolene Shawl with Jeans yarn and my free pattern – I think you’re going to love wearing it almost as much as you love making it!
Read below to find out a bit more about this pattern!
Other Shawl patterns I LOVE! (and you should too!)
I made this Jolene Shawl with easy double crochets and chain stitches to create a window effect is the softest denim-inspired yarn. It’s got all my favorite things!
I love that this design is easily worn as a scarf tied around the neck or as a shawl around the shoulders – I especially love it tied at the chest! It’s such an easy layer to grab on your way out the door for those days when it’s chilly in the morning but too warm for a sweater in the afternoon.
The color changes in the pattern give a sort of faded effect, especially when using 3 color variations within the same family. Using 3 tones of denim blue were an easy way to give the pattern a great cohesive look with easy fade detail. Imagine all the color possibilities! You could do 3 shades of the same color (all greys would be stunning, or fade from black to white) or choose three totally unrelated but coordinating colors to create your own creative palette!
I used Lion Brand’s Jeans Yarn because it’s a tried and true favorite! You can’t go wrong with any of the color combination possibilities in the lineup because they were all made to go together in a blissful mix & match fashion.
I loved using this yarn because it’s the softest acrylic yarn I’ve found and the drape is so easy. I didn’t have my steamer with me and this baby draped without even blocking! Jeans is one of those yarns that’s grossly underrated in my opinion, it’s one of the best big box store yarns on the market and I highly recommend you try it if you haven’t already!
