We’re featuring a new free pattern every Tuesday for 12 weeks. This week’s free crochet pattern is the Placid Shawl.

The Placid Shawl is a teal colored shawl made of square  motifs, joined into a triangular shape. A model shows the shawl with its wingspan spread out.

As the weather starts to chill, you’ll need a cozy shawl to wrap up in for holiday parties and festive get-togethers. The Placid Shawl is the perfect project for wrapping in warmth this holiday season. Start it now so it will be ready for gifting come giving season.

We’re celebrating the launch of WeCrochet and the spirit of gift-giving season by giving away one free pattern each Tuesday in the lead up to the holidays. These projects are perfect for giving away as gifts (or keeping yourself sain during the busy hustle and bustle). Each week the pattern will be a bit smaller and easier to complete in time for the holidays. Welcome to the 12 Weeks of Gifting!

You will love all the projects featured in 12 Weeks of Gifting ! From afghans to throws, shawls, accessories, and other small gifts; you’re sure to find just what you’re looking for as you make gifts this season!
