Party Punch Shawl, a free Tunisian crochet summer mesh shawl pattern

Let the good times roll when you make the Party Punch Shawl, a free one-skein-wonder crochet pattern designed in collaboration in WeCrochet.

When I was getting back into crochet, I got the impression that crocheters could only make bathing suits and crossbody bags in the summer. My, have things changed. The Party Punch Shawl proves that you can always wear and style a lightweight scarf, even when the weather is warm.

What’s In a Name?

I typically name my patterns after people in my life or places I want to visit. The Party Punch Shawl was a fun experiment in letting my imagination wander. I was inspired by the Peach Melba colorway of WeCrochet’s new Hawthorne fingering weight yarn.

This colorway is truly magical. A creamy white base is heavily speckled with bright orange, pink, and yellow, which made me think of an alcoholic beverage with a very suggestive name. Avoiding the risqué option, I thought of a few other drinks. Of course, drinks make me think about college, and college makes me think about the barrels and barrels of party punch we made.

My personal party punch recipe had lemon, strawberries, and oranges, all of which are represented in the speckles of the Peach Melba colorway. Calling this project the Party Punch Shawl seemed meant to be.

Warning: Wet Blocking Ahead

One of the features that make the Party Punch Shawl so amazing is the drape. Rows and rows of mesh stitches create an airy fabric that you’ll only get to experience when you block the piece. Blocking is a way of relaxing the stitches by letting the piece soak in warm, soapy water, then letting it air dry.

For whatever reason, crocheters are rarely instructed to block their finished pieces. I’m a huge fan of blocking and feel it’s a necessary finishing step to make pieces picture perfect. If you’re new to blocking and want a quick education before diving into the Party Punch Shawl, check out this tutorial video. I’m breaking down all the steps you need to make blocking easy and painless.

The Party Punch Shawl is a boomerang-shaped triangular wrap that begins from one narrow end. By strategically adding increases, the working row begins to grow and the boomerang shape appears. A built-in border of Tunisian knit stitches is also present. This pattern is written for one skein of fingering weight yarn and accounts for skeins with more or less yardage than the original skein used. Substitute any yarn from your stash to make this lightweight summer wrap.

      This is wonderful. Can you suggest any less expensive 5.5mm Tunisian hook with the cord options? I’ve never done Tunisian and starting out with a $100 set might end up as a regret for me. Thank you.

    Hi Toni! It could be my tension and maybe this is resolved with blocking, but I’m seeing the right edge be a bit tighter than the left. Should that be the case? Really loving the pattern so far! Thanks, Christina

    I’m having a difficult time understanding where my stitches go in the repeat of rows 9 & 10. I need to understand where my posts & yo is to know how to count the sk1.

      You’ll be pulling up stitches in the front-left leg of the yarn over, then you yarn over and skip the Tss that’s underneath it. I hope that clears things up.

    I love this shawl and can’t wait to wear it! It is my first time even doing Tunisian Crotchet. I’m at the last 3 rows and having a hard time with the knit stitch. I understand how to do the stitch but unsure how to do it with the yarn overs from the previous row. I’ve searched YouTube and cannot find a video to help! Hoping I can figure it out!

      Hi Lisa! You’ll want to pull up a loop in the space of the yarn over, so it’ll be the open space between the front and back legs.
