Make this 8-hour cabana crochet shawl in a day. Recently, I had the chance to spend a whole day on the couch at home, watch Netflix and crochet.. This beautiful shawl is the result of that day.

Comfy Cotton Blend Yarn
This scarf is made using one skein of Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend Yarn. The color is whipped cream. It is a soft yarn that flows nicely with this particular pattern.
Recently, there have been a lot of yarn sales and when this one was on sale, I had no idea on what to make with this, but just knew that I had to get some of this into my yarn stash.
So glad I took advantage of the sale, as I just love how this crochet project turned out with it. To be honest, the hardest part of crocheting this beautiful scarf is finding the beginning of the yarn! I swear it took me 20 minutes. Hopefully, you will have better luck with that.
Luxurious Feeling Crochet Shawl Perfect for Relaxing
Just image wearing this crochet shawl walking on a beach somewhere or lounging in a cabana.
There is a light breeze rustling through the light curtains that are fluttering. The weather is just perfect and your relaxing.
A light and flowing shawl is just the perfect accessory. Handmade by you – even better.
This scarf is worked from one corner to the opposite side. In an asymmetrical shawl, the stitches are added to one side.
Video Tutorial of this Beginner Shawl Pattern
Below the written pattern, there are two video tutorial links. Because I did rows 1-12 in full, it took two videos. Part 1 of 2 shows rows 1-3. Part 2 of 2 shows rows 4-12.
Easy. Great crochet pattern for a first shawl. You should be familiar with the chain stitch and double crochet. If you are new to crochet, you can find crochet tutorials here.
15 double crochet per 4 inches. After 12 rows, the triangle size is approximately 6 1/2 inches wide X 7 1/5 inches long. However, gauge is not crucial for this project. Additionally, changes in yarn or crochet hook may affect the finished size.
Finished size: 37 inches long X 36 inches wide. this can be adjusted by adding or decreasing rows. The shawl is made with one skein of yarn. I was able to crochet 60 rows from the yarn that I used.

Hello. Thanks for this so nice and easy pattern to do ! It's going up quickly ! I have 2 comments about the written explanations : - on row 7 : I don't think we do '(DC CH 1, DC) in last ST.' at the end of the row, the increasing has been done at the begining of row. - on row 9 : it's 'CH 3, 2 DC in the same ST', the '2' is missing ! Your very well done video helped me to find why I didn't managed to arrive at 19 Dc at the end of the row !! Thanks for your great work and beautiful patterns !

It is amazing how many times I can read and re-read this and work the stitches and not catch those pesky mistakes. Thanks again. Enjoy your shawl.
