Now that Spring is here I find myself always layering. Here on the west coast the weather can change from one hour to the next and you never really know what you’re in for. I was looking for something I could use for an outer layer that is still light, but will give a bit of coverage and a lot of style. I decided a shawl would do the trick, and was aiming for something modern, that could be worn a few different ways. I am very excited to share with you today the Riverside Shawl free pattern!

Light And Airy
The Riverside Shawl is the perfect light layer for those spring and summer days that only require a bit of coverage. The design is slightly oversized and can be worn in multiple ways to compliment any outfit.
The pattern is worked worked from the bottom tip up, making it so easy to customize the size.
Using a lightweight yarn gives it beautiful drape and airy coverage.
The Tester Pictures
My testers flew through this test, and as always, were awesome!
Some of the yarns they used included: Cygnet Yarns Premier DK Wool, Loops and Threads Joy DK, and Caron Skinny Cakes.
I chose the gorgeous Cotlin Reflection yarn, kindly provided by *WeCrochet for this event. CotLin cool and lightweight Tanguis cotton and summer linen blend. It worked up absolutely perfect for the Riverside Shawl and had the prefect drape I was going for! The Reflections line had the most stunning colours too!
