Crochet Pattern: Fire and Ice Shawl (Make It For Me 2018)

(Multicolor triangular shawl displayed against a blue background.) Free crochet pattern: Fire and Ice Shawl in Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball Metallic yarn by Underground Crafter | This simple, triangular shawl shines in a self-striping, metallic yarn.I’m so excited to share a crochet pattern for a simple, triangular shawl that is transformed into something spectacular with a self-striping, metallic yarn! I named it the Fire and Ice Shawl because of the yarn colors but also because it’s a bold, yet versatile accessory that you can wear as a scarf in cold weather, or as a decorative shawl all year round.

This pattern is part of ELK Studio’s Make It for Me crochet-a-long. I’m participating as a designer for the third consecutive year. If you love to crochet shawls, try the Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette (my 2016 MIFM pattern) and the Beach Stroll Memories Shawl (my 2017 MIFM pattern).

When I signed up for the 2018 Make It For Me, I knew I wanted to make a shawl. Confession time: For years, I struggled to wear my own crocheted goodies. I was crocheting all the time, but I never really wore anything I made. Everything was for gifts, to donate, to sell… (Sound familiar?) Finally, I discovered that triangular shawls really work for me.

I designed the Fire and Ice Shawl using one skein of Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball Metallic yarn. I’ll admit that I wasn’t convinced until I actually made it that an entire shawl could emerge from this one ball of yarn, but it’s true. (I even had about 15% of the ball left, so if your gauge is a little different than mine, you should be able to get a shawl out of it, too.)

I decided to try something new with this shawl, and I began and ended with a rounded tips. I love the result, and I hope you do, too.

    Love it. I don’t make larger items because I tend not to ever get them finished. But this…. this may change my mind. I love the colors. And being done with a J hook, maybe will help me complete it. Thanks for a beautiful pattern.

    This seems like a nice simple shawl to start with. I’ve never made one and never really wear anything I make either. Plus this gives me a reason to buy a shawl in a ball that I’ve been eyeing but couldn’t justify buying yet lol. Thank you for the free pattern. Came here from Moogly hohd fyi
