Koi Shawl | Free Crochet Pattern


Designed in collaboration with Koi Fish Fibers, this shawl features gorgeous hand-dyed yarn, a simple stitch pattern, and a beautiful fade. This shawl is the perfect mindless project for any day, and is a joy to create.

  • Size 4.00 mm crochet hook

  • Scissors

  • Yarn needle

  • Ruler to check gauge if desired

Gauge:

It is not necessary to achieve a certain gauge for this pattern. However, if you’re limited on yarn or want the same dimensions as the sample, I suggest checking.
