This one-skein crochet shawl pattern uses self-striping yarn to make colorwork easy. This rectangular shawl can also be worn as a scarf in transitional weather. Since it’s a one-skein crochet shawl pattern, you won’t have many ends to weave in which means you can wear this project as soon as it’s finished. This is an intermediate level pattern, but there are only two rows to repeat. Once you get the stitch pattern down, you will find it a relatively mindless and straightforward crochet project.
