I’m one of those people that just can’t wait to pack up my winter sweaters as soon as the calendar says spring. But in my haste, I always forget that there will be a few surprisingly chilly days as we transition to warmer weather. Over the years, I’ve learned how important it is to keep a layer of warmth with me at all times. The Daydream Shawl was inspired by those unpredictable days when you might need a little something extra to keep the chill away.

In designing the Daydream Shawl, I wanted to mimic the lovely knit-look texture I’ve been seeing in some of my favorite clothing stores. Instead of traditional crochet, I decided to use Tunisian crochet (TC) to build the stitch pattern I envisioned. The unique construction of TC allowed me to play around with dozens of stitches until I landed on the one that brought out the simple but eye-catching vibe I was going for.

Now, we all know I’m a sucker for Lion Brand yarns. So many of my previous JOANN collaborations have included these staple yarns, including my Sweater Weather Cardi, Patchwork Kimono, and the Sweet Gingham Baby Blanket. But why, oh why, did I never do myself the favor of working with Lion Brand Heartland? The world may never know. But I’ve finally given Heartland a try and there’s no going back! 

Not only is Lion Brand Heartland fantastically soft for a 100% acrylic yarn, but the entire color palette of earthy tones really speaks to me. For the Daydream Shawl, I used just over 3 balls of the Grand Canyon colorway. The heathered stone color is sure to match every outfit in my closet each season!

After making my first Daydream Shawl, I got so much inspiration to go stash diving and make this project in yarns that I already had on hand. If you want to use stash yarn for your project, be sure to make a gauge swatch and adjust your hook size as needed. Not all worsted weight yarns are made equally. You can also work this pattern in different yarn weights, colors, and striping patterns. It’s so versatile!

The Daydream Shawl is constructed with Tunisian crochet stitches from the bottom up. Increases at the beginning and end of each row make for a shallow and wide shawl. A combination of Tunisian simple stitch decreases and yarn overs produces a knit-like textured fabric that maintains a light airiness.  If you’re ready to make your own Daydream Shawl, keep scrolling for the FREE pattern, or pick up a PDF copy from TLYarnCrafts.com.

FINISHING

Step 1: Loosely complete slip stitch bind off. (Learn the Tunisian crochet slip stitch bind off here!)

Step 2: Steam block as needed to achieve a triangle shape in the pattern dimensions. I steamed my full sized shawl three times, stretching the shawl and repositioning the blocking pins as needed. (Find my favorite steamer for blocking here!)

    I just purchased a kit for the Habitat Cardigan in Lion Brand Grand Canyon. I love this yarn! 💖. I’ve never done Tunisian Crochet, but just checked out your tutorial and it looks super easy! Thank you for that! I’m going to give this shawl a go here, real soon 😊

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Hi Alanna – I’m so glad Tunisian crochet looks approachable to you! I think you’ll have a lot of fun with it. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  2. AvatarTaylor O’Shea says

    Toni – love this piece and started it last night. I watched your video and recognize that it will be an odd shape until blocked. On the left side of my piece it curves up like a wave. I even tried starting over a few times and it happens every time. Is that normal? The right side seems completely straight. Thanks is advance.

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Hi Taylor – I’m so excited to hear that you’ve started your shawl already! I did mention in the notes that the left side of your project will fan out a bit more than the right side. So you’re on the right track. Keep going! 😀

    • AvatarElisia Johnson says

      Hi Toni,

      Tried to start this pattern last night but I continue to get stuck on row 3. I can’t identify which stitches I am supposed to pick up. I always end up with the wrong ones and wrong amount on my hook. Do you have have any pictures that could point out what I am supposed to pick up? Thx

      • Toni L.Toni L. says

        Hi Elisia! There is a video tutorial for this pattern in the blog post. That might help. There is also a helpful photo tutorial for this in the paid PDF version of the pattern.

  3. AvatarJudy says

    The shawl is beautiful, and the video is FANTASTIC! Clear and to the point, and you even showed us how to block this particular project. You’re a great teacher. Thank you for the pattern and the tutorial.

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Thanks so much, Judy! I’m glad the video was so helpful. I’m hoping to offer many more as I release more free patterns 🙂

  4. AvatarCecilia says

    I love this shawl and am in the middle of working on it. It’s my first tunisian crochet pattern, and I realized as I was working it would make a lovely blanket. How would I adapt it to make a square/rectangle? I haven’t quite figured out what part of the pattern causes it to expand yet. The TSS at either end?

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Hi Cecilia! Isn’t the texture on this shawl just wonderful?! To make this stitch pattern without the increases, you would start with an odd number of stitches, then (yo, tss2tog) across to the last stitch, and tss that last stitch. Easy peasy!

  5. AvatarLarissa Da Silva says

    I’m at the point of the slip stitch bind off… do I also do the yarn overs from the pervious row or do I ignore those and only do the vertical bars? I’m a bit confused. Thanks

  6. AvatarNaDine says

    Thank you so much for this pattern. Your instructions are great! I started it on Saturday and finishing on Monday using 3 skeins of LionBrand Basic Stitch anti-pilling yarn. It is beautiful and really goes quickly.

  7. AvatarErin wilson says

    Can’t wait to get started on this. However, I do not have a hand held steamer like you do. However, I do have an iron with a steam setting. Would that work? Or could I do what I normally do when I finish a woven piece? Which is run it through my washer on a rinse/spin cycle then pin on my blocking board to dry.

  8. AvatarKaren Levy says

    Hi Toni,
    I just finished the daydream shawl. Would this yarn work to soak in a warm water bath before blocking or is steam best?
    I love your patterns and tutorials!

  9. AvatarShelley T says

    Love this shawl, but LionBrand is out of most colors and the kit price has gone up $10… May have to wait out the pandemic crochet explosion til they shear more acrylic sheep! Thank you for being a bright light during this dim time btw 💕

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Hi Shelley! If you remove the extra notions from the kit, it brings the price down to $19.47. And if you can’t find the Heartland colors you need on Lion Brand’s Website, you can find Heartland at JOANN.com and JOANN stores for a pretty reasonable price. I saw the website has 25 color options.

  10. AvatarMarcia W. says

    Hi. I love the way you blocked the shawl. You made it so simple, and you convinced me that blocking is necessary. Thank you.

  11. AvatarStephanie says

    Hello, Any suggestions for a substitute yarn? I live in Canada and cannot find LB Heartland in stock anywhere and international from Lion Brand.com costs more than the yarn itself 🙁

    Thanks!

  12. AvatarMelody says

    Hi, Toni. Last week I was diagnosed with acute leukemia and immediately entered the hospital for treatment. I have a 5 year old at home and being away from him has me an emotional train wreck so I’ve been looking for something to keep me busy and occupy my mind during a very long hospital stay, and I ran across your site. Yay! I’ve always been an artsy craftsy type and am planning to give Tunisian crochet a try, with help from your tutorials. I’ve tried to find the instructions for the Daydream shawl but am not seeing them for free. I’d love to have them, if it’s possible. Thanks for your helpful site.

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Hi! The free version of the pattern is available to view at the bottom of the blog post. If you’d like a PDF version to download and/or print, you can find it for purchase on my website, TLYarnCrafts.com.

  13. AvatarMeg says

    Hi Toni, I have 3 different colors of Heartland yarn that I was going to use for a different project, but I really like this shawl and would like to use the yarn for this pattern instead. It would be my first Tunisian Crochet project… Can I just switch colors whenever I want? It is that simple? Probably a dumb questions but I am quickly learning that crochet has some nuances to it 🙂 Thanks!!

  14. AvatarMaria says

    Hi Toni,
    I am making the daydream shawl. Already made your poncho for myself and my sister..we love them! Just wondering if you have any idea how many stitches you had in the last row before binding off? Thanks so much! Love your work❤️👍🤗

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Hi Maria, beginning in Row 2, I add 4 stitches each row. My finished sample had 50 rows, which means I had 201 stitches on my last row. Hope that helps!
