Analeigh Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

With Spring in sight, and hopefully fast approaching, I get in the Spring cleaning mood, and I don’t mean actual cleaning…. I mean some yarn stash cleaning! As part of the One Skein Makes Blog Hop I am so excited to share the Analeigh Shawl which can be made with 1 cake of Lion Brand Mandala yarn! So lets get some Spring cleaning done on our stash and make something beautiful with that cake!

Easy Beauty

The Analeigh Shawl is made by using only double crochet stitches with different variations for added texture and detail.

The pattern is worked from the top down, gradually getting bigger as you go. The pattern uses easy repeats so you can continue to grow until your desired size, or make it smaller for a more of a cowl scarf look.

Since I designed this for the One Skein Makes Blog Hop, I took a good look at my stash to see what’s been hanging around for a while. I have a few cakes of Mandala, and though, I’m likely not the only one! The light weight and beautiful colours and variations of *Mandala definitely confirmed my thoughts that this is the perfect yarn for a one-cake shawl!

The Tester Pictures

I know I say this all the time…. but seriously, my testers are amazing! Their Analeigh Shawls turned out beautifully! I’d also like to take this opportunity to give them a special shout-out, not just the testers for this pattern, but for the others as well. They work so hard and do so much to help ensure that TTLYC patterns are easy to follow and read. We do our very best to bring you the best, and their efforts are invaluable!

Most of the testers used Lion Bran Mandala, and one used hand-dyed yarn. The Mandala colourways used were: Genie, Spirit, Unicorn, and Mandala Sparkle in Nova .

    Dear Ashley, Thank you for sharing this pattern. I love it.

    I am having challenges with row 6. Maybe I am reading the pattern wrong. I am on my third try. I come out with a different number of forks on each side. By Row 8 everything is off.

    I am an experienced crocheter and knitter.(60yrs). Mary Ivie. 703-887-7586

      Hello,
      It’s hard to suggest what may be happening without more info, but the video tutorial goes over row 6 step by step. That should help.
