The Journey Shawl is a lightweight, asymmetrical accessory filled with beginner Tunisian crochet stitches and eye-catching colorwork. It starts off simple, with 1 color going 1 direction. Then, 1 by 1, a new line is created off the previous, gradually growing into a more complex design of 12 vertical and diagonal lines.

The pattern offers easy to follow, row-by-row instructions and charts for 3 colors, but since the pattern specifies how much yarn you need PER stripe you could use up to 12 different colors! (Great for getting rid of those scraps!)


When I looked at the finished piece, it reminded me of the walk of life. Like, if colors represented options and directions represented choices this is what life would look like laid out. Starting off simple and innocent, gradually changing and growing after each experience, evolving into something so much more beautiful and complex with time.


Wingspan (after blocking): 57"

Depth (after blocking): 24"


YARN: @YarnLadyandCo was generous enough to gift me this gorgeous hand dyed yarn! It's 75% Superwash merino and 25% nylon and I used the colors Sap (yellow), Cabin in the Woods (red), and (white).

Although I highly recommend using her yarn to make your own Journey Shawl (you can check out her Etsy shop here), any dk weight should work up great!

Great options include:

You'll need approximately:

Color A (CA) Red: 246 yards (3.9 oz)

Color B (CB) Yellow: 316 yards (5 oz)

Color C (CC) White: 255 yards (2.71 oz)
