Bridget Crochet Crescent Shawl inspiration
I love scarves and shawls, and while I have designed a few easy crochet shawl patterns before I started to write It’s a Wrap, I hadn’t created a crescent shaped shawl crochet pattern. Looking for something simple and easy to work up, the idea for Bridget was born.
The idea was to create a crescent shawl crochet pattern that emphasised the crescent shape with simple stitches, but that had an edge with a flourish to add a contrast. Generally speaking I do not put borders onto my crochet shawl patterns, and this was a chance to do something easy and different.
With an easy to remember and work up repeating pattern and a staggered scalloped edge, Bridget is named after Renee Zellwegger in Bridget Jones Diary. This is the big knickers of shawls, comfortable, easy to wear and goes with everything. I loved the book, and the movie and Renee and this easy crescent shaped shawl pattern is the same to me – comfortable and works for everyone. Great with jeans, jumper or a dress and super simple, it’s an easy enough shape for beginners, while the scalloped edge keeps it interesting for more experienced crocheters.
Crochet Crescent Shawl yarn & materials
To make my Bridget crescent shawl pattern I used 1 x 1000m 4ply cake from Crochet UK in Torquay to make my initial version of the design. I loved the boldness of the pinks in this gradient and the way the work out over the crescent shaped shawl. To find out more about the yarn cakes available from Crochet UK, check out the review post here.
To make my second Bridget crochet crescent shawl I used 1 x Sultan Deluxe from Hobbii in Eagle Diamond (no 16). Sultan Deluxe is a 100% Cotton 2 or fingering weight gradient yarn cake from Hobbii. To find out more about this yarn, check out the review post here.
