Cherry Blossom Shawl Free Crochet Pattern

The Cherry Blossom shawl is my first design using both hand dyed yarn and fingering (#1) weight yarn! I purchased the beautiful yarn pictured above from Ashleigh and CJ of Handmade Home Fibers, during one of their updates. The names of the yarn were Georgia and Peach Cobbler, and being from the state of Georgia, I was in love already! This yarn is wonderful to work with. It has an amazing drape, even before blocking! The colors were just stunning! I love how the solid color was truly solid and very saturated. There wasn’t any spots of yarn that didn’t have color or color that wasn’t as bright. And the speckles on the other color were my favorite! They worked together perfectly! The Cherry Blossom Shawl is perfectly customizable to your size preferences. You’ll love the workup as much as the finished project!

You can purchase the ad-free, printable, pdf version of the pattern on Ravelry and Etsy!
