Hi Everyone! Today, I’ve got a highly anticipated project for you, the Beachy Crochet Shawl!! I made this shawl for a photo shoot I had and you all have been dying for a tutorial since I started sharing some of the photos 😉 My photos were done by the amazing Alyssa from Blyss Photography. If you are in the L.A. area you have to check her out!
T-shirt or home dec style yarn (The yarn I used http://amzn.to/2r5aiVe) I needed 2 balls of the Bernat Home Dec yarn but didn’t use it all up.
I wanted to have some crochet represented in my photos in a really natural way, so I made this easy shawl to add a pop of color. I knew it would be on the beach, so I was hoping it would turn out cute, and it did!

Body of the Shawl
Ch 136 (you may modify this, just make sure your foundation chain is a multiple of 2)
In 4th chain from hook, place double crochet (dc).
Ch 1 and skip 1 foundation chain and then place another dc.
Continue this pattern until the end of the row. Make sure there is a dc in the last stitch.
ch 3 and turn work
dc in the first ch 1 space (the hole), ch 1 and dc in the next ch 1 space and repeat. Finish with a dc in the top of the turning chain from the previous row.
ch 3 and turn work
dc in the first ch 1 space, ch 1, dc in ch 1 space and repeat to the end of the row.
Repeat the pattern for 16 rows or desired width.
Once you finish the last row, sc up the left side of the shawl to create the border. Be sure to put 3 stitches in the corners. If you have too many stitches, it will ruffle and too few will stretch.
No need to put a border on the last row you crocheted.
Cut strips for fringe to 24 inches (or desired size)
Fold in half, put the loop at the halfway point through the edge without the border. Put the loop where ever you think it looks best, pull the 2 strands through the loop and pull to tighten.
Use sharp fabric scissors to cut straight edge of fringe if desired. Or leave it raw like I did for a casual beachy look.
