Exciting New Crochet Shawl: 3 Balls of Yarn Only

Crochet Shawl Pattern

Learn to Make This Crochet Shawl

Last week, I showed you my shawl. I didn’t tell you the pattern because I had detected two errors within the pattern. I reached out to Red Heart and they quickly realized my findings were accurate. With that, they did the corrections and added the omissions into the article.

The Top Down Shawl pattern has been corrected. Here is the new pattern link for it. Top-Down Shawl Crochet Pattern

I really enjoyed this pattern and it was really easy. I used Red Heart Boutiques Unforgettable. The colour I used was called Echo. If you are looking for a sharp looking shawl, this may just the pattern you need.

By the way, I substituted the border fringe by slip stitch Red Heart Sashay into the final edge. I slipped stitched the sashay into every other gap space and grabbed the Sashay by every 3rd hole in the edge of the Sashay. Turned out pretty snazzy I think.

    Beautiful Shawl Mikey! Another project from you I want to try. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Mikey said he used boutique unforgettable which is 3.5 ozs and 279 yd (256 m) per skein (ball). So if you want to substitute another yarn you would need approximately 810 yds or 780 m of comparable yarn (meaning same weight yarn).

    Are you planning on a video tutorial for this?

  8. I think he meant 3 skeins which is the same as a ball of yarn!!! lol

      • sandra says:

        I have skeins that are 7 oz or 11 oz or 14 oz. So which one equals 1 ball?

        Please excuse my ignorance. I just want to understand terminology I’m not familiar with. 🙂

    • Only in Canada!! LOL

      • sandra says:

        I live in The South in the USA and have always bought my yarn by “X” number of skeins that weigh “X” number of ounces – and then the weight of the yarn factored in. Until I started watching Mikey’s videos, I had never heard of the quantity of yarn needed referred to as balls. It’s always good to learn something new.

        Happy Hooking!!! 🙂

      • My mom always called them yarn balls.

      • Teresa Fawcett says:

        i’m canadian too, and always refered to them as balls of yarn, until i became an adult and started using the internet to look for patterns, etc. calling them skeins is still weird for me. i prefer my yarn balls too 🙂

    Hey Mikey, Exactly what do you mean by “3 balls of yarn”? I think in some of your tutorials, you also use the term “ball”. This is confusing to me since I buy yarn in skeins that are marked by ounces, grams, yards & meters on the label. So how much does a “ball” equal?

    • The pattern is posted. I used the same yarn required in the pattern. I just changed the colour.

      • sandra says:

        Thanks Mikey. I see it in the pattern now.~Senior Moment~ 🙂
        Love your tutorial videos. I’ve always had trouble reading patterns. You have taught me so many new stitches and patterns. Christmas gifts are in the works for all the grandkids and great-grandkids! Thanks again.
