Moss stitch shawl

Purchase this pattern at:

Last fall I was browsing in the Lion Brand Yarn Outlet when I came across a marked-down bin of Lion Brand Mandala Wool Blend in the discontinued colorway “Hades.” I fell in love with the blues and purples and bought several cakes. I used most of them to crochet pocket scarves as Christmas gifts, but set aside two to crochet this light, season-spanning shawl for myself.

This shawl is worked end to end, starting with a ribbed border, working the body of the shawl in moss stitch, and ending by repeating the border. Working moss stitch with a weight 3 yarn such as Lion Brand Mandala creates a smooth, lightweight fabric with a lovely drape.

Moss stitch is a very easy, beginner-friendly stitch. This pattern is so simple and mindless that it’s a great project to do while binge-watching your favorite show.

The pattern can also be adapted easily to use a weight 4 yarn, if desired. Weight 4 yarn will require fewer rows and stitches per row.

You are free to gift, donate or sell for profit any items you make from this pattern. I ask only that if you sell items made from any of my patterns, as a courtesy you reference as the pattern’s source.
