I’m excited to be participating in ELK Studio’s Make It For Me Event for the fourth year in a row! The Promenade Shawl crochet pattern is a one-skein triangular shawl that works up easily with simple stitches. Wear it as a scarf in cold weather and as a shawl in warm weather. No need to measure your gauge and it’s easy to customize the size. What more can you ask for?

Kathy from ELK Studio has her Make It For Me Event going on again this year. After all that holiday crafting, you need some “crochet for me” time, right?
It’s no secret that my favorite crochet projects to make for me are triangular shawls. If you’ve met me in real life, you may have even seen me wearing one! That’s why I’ve always designed shawls for the Make It For Me Event. In 2016, it was the Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette…
In 2017, it was the Beach Stroll Memories Shawl…
And, in 2018, it was the Fire and Ice Shawl.
I wanted something portable, so I made this a one-skein project in Red Heart It’s a Wrap yarn. It’s a yarn with 3 color changes to make color-blocking easy. I worked the main body of the shawl with the granny stitch and then for the border, I decided to use another favorite stitch pattern: the v-stitch.
This is an easy-to-customize pattern since you can just repeat Row 3 until you reach the size that you want. Use any weight of yarn you like with a hook that is 1-3 sizes larger than what is recommended. Try out the stitches until you like the drape. Make your Promenade Shawl with stripes, solids, or color-blocking — make it yours!
And, why the Promenade Shawl, you ask? The Brooklyn Promenade is a favorite place to take a little stroll during lunchtime when I’m at work, and, in my humble opinion, it has the best view of the Manhattan skyline. What do you think?
I love that the yarn is lightweight enough that I can wear my Promenade Shawl as a scarf inside of my coat if I want, or on the outside. You choose what works best for you. And, the cotton blend yarn makes it breathable enough to wear as a shawl in warmer weather, too.
