Crochet Pattern: Peacock Stitch Shawlette

Peacock Stitch Shawlette, free broomstick lace #crochet pattern by Marie Segares @ucrafterI love playing with different crochet techniques, like broomstick lace. Back in the day, broomstick lace was also known as the peacock stitch. I had some lovely Cascade Yarns Casablanca in Peacock leftover after making the Rippling Peacock Scarf, and I decided to combine the peacock stitch with this peacock colorway to design the Peacock Stitch Shawlette. (That’s a lot of Ps, but I think you’ll find that it’s all worth it!)

This post contains affiliate links. The yarn for the sample was generously provided by Cascade.

This triangular shawlette is crocheted from corner to corner with alternating rows of broomstick lace and standard crochet. It’s a great transitional weather shawlette that can also be worn as a scarf. The Peacock Stitch Shawlette is also wonderful for keeping your shoulders warm in air conditioning.

Peacock Stitch Shawlette, free broomstick lace #crochet pattern by Marie Segares @ucrafterIf you’re new to broomstick lace, I have a beginner tutorial at the end of the pattern for Quadrilateral: A broomstick lace shawl. (Please note that the tutorial uses 5 loop broomstick lace spaces, while this pattern uses 3 loop spaces.)

This pattern was originally published on Stitch and Unwind.

Crochet Pattern: Rippling Peacock Scarf

Rippling Peacock Scarf, free crochet pattern by Underground Crafter

I love ripple patterns. There’s something amazing about the way the peaks and valleys materialize right off the hook.
There’s also something about ripples and stripes. The color changes highlight the peaks and valleys, so naturally, stripes and ripples pair well. Until, of course, you get to the ends. No one likes weaving in ends, and color changes mean more ends to weave in. But with Cascade Casablanca, you can let the yarn do the striping for you.

This post contains affiliate linksThe yarn for the sample was generously provided by Cascade.

Rippling Peacock Scarf, free crochet pattern by Underground Crafter

This stitch pattern isn’t just your standard ripple, though. There’s also texture because of the popcorn stitches, and a little eyelet action to give it a nice drape.

Rippling Peacock Scarf, free crochet pattern by Underground Crafter

The yarn has a great texture and feel, too, because it is a wool/mohair/silk blend. The colors remind me of spring, which is always welcome during the dark days of winter.

And, as you can see, it’s wide enough for full neck coverage, and long enough for an extra wrap around.
