Turquoise Fiesta Shawl – Free pattern!

The Turquoise Fiesta shawl is made up of only one stitch – The Tunisian Full Stitch. It works up quickly and you don’t have to count stitches! The shawl is reversible and looks great on both sides. You can read more about it here.

Skill Level

Beginner – The only tricky bit it to work with two colors. If you need some help with changing colors at the beginning of a reverse pass, here’s a photo tutorial for you.

Materials
  1. Worsted weight yarn in 2 colors – 500 yards (250 yards in each color). You can use any combination of solid / variegated / gradient yarns to make it.
    • I used one skein of Craft Smart Solid (Turquoise) one skein of Craft Smart Ombre (Fiesta).
  2. 8mm Tunisian crochet hook*
  3. Scissors
  4. Tapestry needle to weave in tails
Gauge

Gauge is not important in this project. You can use any yarn with an appropriate hook to make it and the pattern will not change. The size of your shawl will vary depending on your style of crocheting and tension.

Dimensions

After steam blocking – 70” (178 cms) x 34” (87 cms) x 90”(229 cms)

Colors

C1: Turquoise
C2: Fiesta

Instructions

Note: This pattern is written in US terms.

Row 1

FPWith C1, chain 2. Make the foundation row stitches in the back loops of the chain. 
You will have 2 loops on the hook at the end of the FP.
RP Join C2, ch 1, (yo, pull through 2 loops on hook) across until one loop remains on hook.

Row 2

FPWith C2, make a tfs in every space between the stitches of the previous row. End this row by making a stitch in the last stitch of the previous row. The number of loops on your hook will be one more than the previous row.
RP Join C1, ch 1, (yo, pull through 2 loops on hook) across until one loop remains on hook.

Row 3

FPWith C1, make a tfs in every space between the stitches of the previous row EXCEPT for the last one. End this row by making a stitch in the last stitch of the previous row. The number of loops on your hook will be the same as the previous row.
RPJoin C2, ch 1, (yo, pull through 2 loops on hook) across until one loop remains on hook.

Row 4 – one before the last row

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have achieved the desired length of the shawl. My shawl has 140 rows.

Last row

FPUsing the same yarn that you made the RP of the previous row, make a tfs in every space between the stitches of the previous row. Instead of leaving all the loops on the hook, you will create a slip stitch / single crochet stitch every time you pick up a loop on your hook. Cut C1 and C2 and weave in all ends.
RPThere is no reverse pass.
Blocking

I steam blocked my shawl by placing a cotton cloth on the shawl and using a steam iron over it but you are free to choose whatever method you’d like to use.

  1. I have to laugh when I first layer eyes on the shawl I thought it was some expensive yarn. The store that sells this yarn Has raised the price of this yarn Quite a bit So I Think that they have seen your Beautiful Shawl also

  2. A stitch count would be very helpful. What am I missing?

    Wendy says:
    1. Hi Wendy, it is hard to specify exact stitch counts for every row because it is a repeating pattern. I did mention the number of stitches you should expect at every row in the instructions above. If you are still having trouble with it, please reach out to me by email (knitterknotter@gmail.com) and I will be happy to help you out.
