Easy Summer Shawl Crochet Pattern: The Summer Mint Shawl

Sharing is caring!

Are you looking for a pattern so you can crochet a simple lightweight summer shawl? Looking for an easy summer shawl crochet pattern that is beginner friendly? We’ve got just the thing: a beginner-friendly shawl pattern that’s easy to customize for size and perfect for new crocheters wanting to dip their hooks into shawl patterns but want to go easy.

What’s great about this pattern is that you can adjust the size of the shawl by changing the number of times you repeat the 5 row repeat. Each 5 row repeat adds 3.5 inches in width and 2 inches in height, so you can make the shawl as big or as small as you like. The pattern as written includes 14 repeats and results in a finished size of 54 inches wide and 34 inches tall.

The Summer Mint Crochet Shawl

Even if you’re new to crochet, this pattern is easy to follow. You’ll only need to know a few basic stitches, including chain, double crochet, half double crochet, and triple crochet.

To get the best results, we recommend using Lion Brand Truboo yarn. It offers a lovely drape and doesn’t require blocking once you’re finished. Of course, you can use any yarn you like, but keep in mind that it may require blocking after you are done and the drape of the finished shawl may be different.

So why not give this easy summer shawl crochet pattern a try? It’s a fun and rewarding project that you’ll be proud to wear and show off!

Notes:

  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
  • The turning chains at the start of each row do not count as a stitch.
  • Blocking is not necessary if using the Lion Brand Truboo yarn. Other yarn types might require blocking.
  • If you use Truboo Sparkle, remember to double check yardage because the Sparkle has less yardage than the regular Truboo.

The finished size as the pattern is written is 54 inches (137 cm) across the top by 34 inches (86 cm) down the middle from the top to the bottom middle point.
