Cloverleaf v-stitch shawl inspiration
Cloverleaf is an easy v-stitch corner to corner shawl pattern and the second project inspired by a recent poll of my email list. This easy v-stitch corner to corner shawl is possibly my current favourite of the projects, firstly because it is green, secondly because it is a very easy pattern to follow, making it a great Netflix project!
Cloverleaf shawl yarn and materials
To make my Cloverleaf v-stitch corner to corner shawl I used a gradient cake from Crochet UK in the new ‘block gradient’ version. This simply means that the cake colours are wound to achieve even distribution of all the colours. As soon as I heard about this I had to try it and this easy v-stitch shawl pattern is my first attempt at using it. I chose the colour Warwick in a 1250m 4ply cake, and my trusty 4mm crochet hook. I was lucky enough to be chosen by Mel from Crochet UK to test the first versions for this version of the cake. I loved it and immediately pounced on Warwick and a xxx cake made using this wrap.

The Cloverleaf pattern is also easy to adjust and can be used to create a scarf, simply by starting to decrease earlier and using less yarn. This could also become a v-stitch corner to corner super scarf by using Aran or Bulky weight yarn and the appropriate hook!
