The Endless Summer Shawlette is a summer shawl crochet pattern. Make your version in a super fine weight yarn and it will be light enough to pack into your purse. Or, choose a different yarn weight to modify the pattern for different seasons.

Back in 2014, the folks at Prime Publishing were launching I Like Crochet. I designed a series of seasonal crochet triangle shawl patterns for them, and this was the summer shawl.
One of the things I love about crocheting with super fine weight yarns is that you don’t have as much of a need for edgings as your turning chains are just so much smaller than with other yarn weights.
Because of that, this pattern doesn’t have an edging along the straight side, and uses a two-row decorative edging on the angled edge.
I love light summer shawls that can be rolled up and put into your purse or bag for the day. If you feel the same, you may also enjoy my Picnic Basket Shawl.
