What’s a Crochet Along?

Essentially, a crochet along is an online party for crocheters around the world!

We’ll all work on our Bronwyn Shawls together, starting with sourcing our materials and ending with choosing your border option. The crochet along is hosted on the Furls Crochet blog, and they’ll update the blog post with each week’s clue.

The 4-week agenda looks something like this:

  • Pattern Supplies and Details, March 5: Choosing yarn and making a swatch.
  • Week 1, March 12th: Clue 1 available!
  • Week 2, March 19th: Clue 2 available!
  • Week 3, March 26th: Clue 3 available!

I’ll send an email to the TL Yarn Crafts email list each Tuesday to remind you of new clues! Sign up now so you don’t miss a clue: TL Yarn Crafts email list.

About the Bronwyn Shawl

Ever since the release of my Flatiron Shawl, I’ve been itching to design another asymmetrical triangle wrap. I didn’t quite have the motivation until I got the call from my favorite hook company, Furls Crochet.

I’ve been in love with Furls since I got one of their original hand turned hooks years ago. Now that I had the opportunity to test one of their latest hooks on a new design, I knew it was time to realize the shawl idea I’ve been dreaming about.

The Bronwyn Shawl guides makers through an array of crochet techniques that are both fun and meditative. It starts in the corner with just a few stitches and grows with a series of strategically placed increases. Then comes the colorwork and mesh stitches.

A third color is introduced to add dimension to the overall design. Next comes a sea of texture and the design is finished off with a choice between two border designs: an applied crochet I-cord (with video tutorial) or a playful bobble stitch.

Choosing Your Yarn

Choosing the right yarn for your Bronwyn Shawl is crucial to the overall feel of the finished piece. I chose We Are Knitters The Baby Wool for the original sample. The 100% alpaca fiber has amazing drape and measures as a worsted weight yarn. You can pick up all the yarn you need from the We Are Knitters website.

If you’re looking for yarn alternatives, my suggestion is a sumptuous DK weight Merino wool or Merino/Nylon blend. Merino and alpaca have very different qualities but both produce an amazing fabric. I recommend DK Merino over worsted to help you meet gauge and to get a similar overall size using similar yardage.

Prefer to work with an acrylic based yarn for this project? Start with a DK weight and be sure to CHECK YOUR GAUGE! Checking your gauge will help you conserve yardage and still get the overall essence of the Bronwyn Shawl. Change your hook size or yarn as needed.

    Hi Toni! I absolutely love this shawl and would like to do the CAL (my first one!). However, I live in Thailand and it’s very complicated/expensive to get yarn here. Unfortunately, we are knitters does not ship here! You mention some alternatives, can you recommend any good brands? I’m still a little new at buying yarn (especially off the internet) so would be good to get some advice. Also – what would you think about using coton? It’s very hot here, so I wondering if that’s a good alternative or that would completely change the feel of the shawl. Thanks in advance 🙂

    Excited to follow along. I’m going to use the We Are Knitters Baby Alpaca (because I’ve never crocheted with alpaca before), but the Mustard color just doesn’t sit well with me so I changed it to Dark Turquoise. It’s all good.

      I’m so excited that you’re joining the CAL, Kelley! I bet the turquoise will be absolutely lovely in your shawl. I can’t wait to see it! Please share it with me on Instagram or in my Facebook group, TLYCMakers 🙂

    Thank you for providing this pattern for free as this months CAL. I can’t wait to get all wrapped up. Quick question: I am just starting this project with the suggested yarn. Is the gauge that is posted correct, or is there possibly a typo in the number of rows? I am a pretty tight crocheter and I can only get about 12 rows in 4 inches.

      Hi Heather! I’m so glad you’re joining the CAL! My gauge in single crochet was 21 rows with a 5.5mm crochet hook. But yours may vary and that’s ok. Make adjustments as you need throughout the shawl to get things to a size you’re happy with. Happy crocheting!
