The jade shawl is my new one skein crochet shawl pattern. I love the jewel tones on this shawl. It is perfect for dressing up your summer outfits and adding a pop of color. It is light and airy and perfect for the warmer weather.
With all the rain that we have been getting this spring, I must admit taking pictures is a serious pain. Photographing this light-colored shawl was a nightmare. I am still not convinced I did a decent job.
Well, with the weather being so unreliable, I had to post what I got or risk not publishing anything on my blog for weeks. So I chose the former.
This is my first time using the Lion Brand Shawl in a Cake yarn. The yarn is marked worsted weight but is quite thin. They recommend a big hook for this yarn to make it easy to unravel just in case you make a mistake.
I was able to complete a shawl with just one skein and I had some yarn left over. So it lives up to its name, Shawl in Cake and is perfect one skein crochet shawl lovers.
It is a machine washable cotton and acrylic blend yarn that is perfect for hot days.
Honestly, I was expecting a little more stitch definition from this yarn. The fuzzy nature of the yarn makes it hard for the stitches to stand out. What it lacks in stitch definition, it makes up with its beautiful colors and light and airy feel.
I used Shawl in a Cake yarn from Lion Brand for this free crochet shawl pattern for beginners. It was my first time trying this yarn and I must say I love the shades it has it has to offer. It has a lush feel to it that makes me feel like a yarn snob, lol!

Each time you work a V-st/V Puff-st row the number of V’s go up by one from the previous V-st/V Puff-st row. That is if there were 5 V-st in the previous row, there will be 6 V-puff st in the next row.
The number of dc and sc stitches go up by 3 from the previous dc or sc row respectively. That is, if your last dc row had 10 dc, your next dc row will have 13 dc.
