Crochet shawls are made using different yarns and a variety of crocheting styles for either a tight or airy crochet pattern. They are worn over the shoulders or upper body for warmth or accent, and are available in different lengths and colors.
Types of Crochet Shawls
Kinds of Crochet Shawls include the following:
Ambrosia crochet shawls
Ambrosia crochet shawls are made from pure ambrosia yarn, which is a combination of three premium fibers – cashmere, silk, and alpaca.
Cotton crochet shawls
Cotton crochet shawls are made from pure mercerized or pima cotton yarn, which is usually 4-ply, worsted-weight, and absorbent.
Choosing Crochet Shawls (Buying tips)
Buttons: Look for a crochet shawl with a camouflaged button to keep it draped around your shoulders always and prevent it from slipping off.
Color: For beachwear, look for a crochet shawl in a translucent color that allows you to cover up and still show off your tan.
Embellishments: Choose a crochet shawl with tassels or beads to accent a formal blazer or a power suit while still maintaining an elegant look.
