Partnering with my favorite brands is definitely a perk of being a crochet designer. I originally designed the Bronwyn Shawl when Furls Crochet connected with me about a crochet-along. During the process, I learned much more about their company and their hooks. I even had a chance to try out the Rose Gold Odyssey hook for the first time. I’ve had an on-again-off-again relationship with these hooks. But after using it for the entire Bronwyn Shawl, I know it’s true love. Learn more about Furls hooks and pick up a few for yourself!

The crochet-along itself was a huge success. Hundreds of makers from around the world shared their shawl progress on Facebook and Instagram. Each one was unique and a journey of its own. Here just a few Bronwyn Shawls that I swooned over from Instagram (click photos for original source):

The fun of the Bronwyn Shawl starts from the very beginning. Since this is such a large project, picking a great yarn is imperative. The original Bronwyn Shawl is made with We Are Knitters The Baby Alpaca, which is a worsted weight 100% alpaca yarn. The drape and softness of this yarn make it a luxurious choice for such a big project.

The second Bronwyn Shawl I made uses Malabrigo Arroyo, which is a sport weight (a little heavier than fingering, a little lighter than DK) 100% superwash merino wool. I used about the same yardage, so my shawl is just a touch smaller than the original. But the drape and impact are just the same. Take some time to thoughtfully pick your yarn for this project to elevate your crochet experience.

The Bronwyn Shawl is an asymmetrical triangle shawl that begins with just 5 chain stitches and grows through the use of strategically placed increases and decreases. The pattern is broken into sections, starting with a sea of single crochet stitches. Rows of colorwork and mesh eventually give way to a swath of texture, and the journey concludes with your choice of 2 finishing borders.

    Thank you so much for this pattern Toni! I’ve just finished my flat iron shawl and am so addicted that I’m now doing a Bronwyn for my mum. Can I use fingering weight yarn for this?

      Hi Deborah! I ADORE your Flatiron so much! Can’t wait to see your Bronwyn. You can certainly make it with fingering, you just might want to increase the number of repeats in each section.
