Tulip Petal Shawl: Free Crochet Pattern


Hello! Happy June! It's getting really warm here, hot on some days but I still need something to cover my arms up with sometimes. I love reaching for one of my crochet shawls and the Tulip Petal Shawl is one of my absolute favorites to grab because it's oversized and so comfy. Today I'm sharing my free crochet pattern, the Tulip Petal Shawl Scroll down for the free pattern.
I designed the Tulip Petal Shawl for allfreecrochet.com's 10th Birthday celebration. For the original pattern and article, click here. I had so much fun using KT And The Squid's Everyday Collection which is gorgeous and so amazing to work with. I love all of her yarns and this set was as beautiful as her other yarns that I have worked with in the past.




The Tulip Petal Shawl was named after it's shape. The increases help create a gorgeous shawl that is shaped like a tulip. 




This shawl has an easy to remember repeat which makes the Tulip Petal Shawl a very relaxing project to work on and it can easily be worked on while watching a movie. The texture created, resembles knitted fabric but it really is crochet and it's super easy to achieve this look. This shawl is also oversized, so it is very cozy, and the tassels add a nice, whimsical touch.
