Crochet a Pink Flamingo Shawl


Summer will be here before you know it, and this shawl has a real tropical vibe–it’s perfect for throwing over your shoulders on a summer evening.

Materials: 1 ball pink ombre self-striping yarn / 6 mm hook / finished size: 48” wide x 31” from top to point

Note: Ch 3 at beginning of each row counts as 1 dc.

ch = chain; sp = space; dc = double crochet; sk = skip

To begin: Ch 4, sl st in first ch to make a ring.

Row 1: In ring: (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc), turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, dc in same sp, dc in next dc, ch 1, sk next dc, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch-2 sp (which is the center), ch 1, sk next dc, dc in next dc, 2 dc in last dc, turn.

Row 3: Ch 3, dc in same sp, *ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc, repeat across from * to centre ch-2 sp, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next dc, *ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc, repeat from * across to last dc, 2 dc in last dc, turn.

Repeat this process, with a 2-dc increase at the beginning and the end of each row, along with a (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in each row’s centre ch-2 sp. Continue until you either run out of yarn or reach your desired size. Add a tassel to each corner (as shown in pictures), if desired.
