Crochet Shawl Pattern (Oasis Wave)

With repeating rows and no colour changes (the 4ply yarn does all the work for us :)) my crochet shawl is an easy pattern.

I’ve written the pattern in US and UK crochet terms.

Suitable for confident beginners, if you’ve been crocheting for a while, you’ll enjoy making this crochet wrap too.

The lacy stitch adds interest and the way the colours change draw the eye.

Design Inspiration

I wanted to design a shawl that celebrates nature and the colours of the yarn inspired this design. 

I had in my mind a lacy shawl and the stitch I experimented with reminded me of flowers growing over a trellis.

The different hues of blue reminded me of water, the greens of flourishing plants/shrubs and the orange glimpses of the setting sun. 

The way the colour changes reminded me of waves … and so the Oasis Wave Crochet Shawl came into existence.

How the pattern is worked

Multiples of 6.

This is a rectangle shawl worked in rows from side to side.

I’ve used a modified triangle mesh stitch (I’ve changed one of the stitches).

This crochet stitch is achieved using double crochet (US single crochet), chains and double treble crochet (US treble crochet).

I’ve worked four rows of triangle mesh followed by 3 rows of double crochet (US single crochet).

These rows are repeated a total of 8 times.

Rows 1 – 8 set the pattern and rows 9 – 15 form the repeating pattern.

This pattern is very adaptable. 

To adjust for a lightweight and lacy scarf, chain a multiple of 6 (+2) to a width of approximately 6 – 8”/15 – 20 cm and crochet to your desired length (a regular scarf length is approximately 60”/152.5 cm).

If you wanted to make a longer shawl, just repeat rows 9 – 15 until you reach your desired size.

It is a durable sock yarn but works equally well for shawls and wraps and looks beautiful with the combination of stitches in this free crochet shawl pattern.

Pattern Notes

  • A larger hook is used than that recommended for the yarn.  This makes the gauge slightly larger giving spaces between stitches for the air to flow through
  • Chain 1 does not count as a stitch
  • Use stitches from the previous row to guide you for the mesh pattern: double treble crochet stitches (US treble crochet) are worked in double crochet stitches (US single crochet) from the previous row; double crochet stitches are worked in double treble crochet stitches from the previous row
  • Blocking will open up the stitches
  • Tension/gauge is not critical for this project
