Neutral-colored Lion Brand Yarns
To achieve the boho-rustic look, it is best to stick with yarns with white or neutral colors. You can make the exact shawl in the pattern by using the yarns suggested by the designer: the Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend and the Lion Brand Re-Tweed Yarn.
Most of the crochet shawl is made using the lightweight Comfy Cotton Blend. Since this yarn is made with 50% cotton and 50% polyester, it is the perfect yarn for summer garments, shawls, tops, and home decors.
If you do not enjoy weaving in ends whenever they run out of yarn, you will be glad to know that the Comfy Cotton Blend comes in a 200 grams cake! Now, you won’t have to worry about using multiple skeins of yarn when working on bigger projects.
To add more of the boho look, the designer also used the Lion Brand Re-Tweed Yarn. The nubby texture from its tweed flecks helps to add more texture to this boho-inspired shawl.
The mix of these two yarns, along with the different stitches and textures, definitely added more charm to this crochet boho shawl. Are you ready to know more about how to work on this crochet boho shawl pattern?
How to make the Fringe in the Crochet Boho Shawl Pattern
Creating a crochet project using this crochet boho shawl pattern is not as hard as it looks especially if you’re an advanced beginner crocheter. Even the fringes are so easy to make as long as you know how to make the loop stitches!
Since the shawl is not reversible, you can easily differentiate the wrong side from the right side. One way to tell them apart is by checking the bobbles and the fringes, which should always be on the right side.
Unlike DIY projects that require fringe, the fringes in this shawl are built-in and not added one by one. To create the fringes, all you have to do is crochet loop stitches then cut them when you have completed the shawl.
Depending on how you want your shawl to look like, you can cut the loops in different lengths or measure it and cut every fringe with the same length.
To better understand how to work on this crochet boho shawl pattern, the designer made a video that anyone can easily follow.
