Free Crochet Pattern Falcon Shawl

Yeah, here it is, my latest pattern! I hereby introduce the Falcon Shawl to you. I did not only make written instructions of this pattern, but I also made a YouTube video of the pattern. This way, you can crochet along with me. That took me many hours to make, but when you’re less experienced in crochet, it makes it so much easier to understand the pattern.

When I was designing this scarf, I was on vacation in the Czech Republic and I was sitting on the balcony of the apartment. There was a family of falcons flying around and that was so impressive to watch. Especially for a bird lover like me. That is why I decided the name of this shawl, should be the Falcon Shawl.

Because I didn’t want a straight edge in this shawl, I came up with a small ridge that you crochet as you go. This way the color gradient is nicely maintained.

Below you will find all the information you need to crochet this shawl, including the video and the written instructions.
