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

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.This year, I decided to go for something a little bit different. I wanted something REALLY relaxing for that post-holiday stress crash, so I decided on the granny stitch, one of my favorites.

Promenade Shawl, free crochet pattern in Red Heart It's a Wrap yarn by Underground CrafterI 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.

Promenade Shawl, free crochet pattern in Red Heart It's a Wrap yarn by Underground CrafterThis 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!

Promenade Shawl, free crochet pattern in Red Heart It's a Wrap yarn by Underground CrafterAnd, 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?

Promenade Shawl, free crochet pattern in Red Heart It's a Wrap yarn by Underground CrafterI 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.

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.

(Multicolor triangular shawl edging details.) 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 wear them under my coat as scarves and then throughout the day as decorative accessories. 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.)

(Multicolor triangular shawl - detail of rounded tip.) 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 love the way the color transformed as I crocheted, and also how the metallic looks in the finished shawl. 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.

Another thing that happens in January (at least in New York City) is that it gets cold and I occasionally entertain fantasies about the awesomeness of summer. (Don’t talk to me about that topic in August, though, because by then I’m exhausted by the oppressive humidity.)

The colors really reminded me of taking a stroll on the beach, and that’s how I came up with the name for this shawl.

You can choose your striping sequence, you can decide how long to make each panel, and you can stop at any point (or continue on) to make the panels smaller or larger. I used the same striping sequence for the outer panels and reversed it for the middle panel to keep things interesting.

Free pattern: Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette (Make it for Me!)

Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter in Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic. I’m so excited to share my pattern for the Make it for Me! Crochet-a-Long with ELK Studio.

This post contains affiliate links. Yarn for the sample was generously provided by Bonita Yarns.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, one of my goals for 2016 I want to be more adventurous with color in projects that I crochet for myself. I usually stick to my favorite colors (purples and blues), so when I received these skeins from Bonita Yarns, I knew they would be perfect for this crochet-a-long.

Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter in Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic.I love making shawlettes for myself because I can wear them as scarves under my coat in the cold, and then use them as accessories over my clothes while I’m out. Being a native New Yorker, I have a lot of black in my wardrobe, so the Over the Rainbow colorway in Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic seemed like a great way to bring a little sunshine with me wherever I go.
