Lazy Sunday Stripes Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern

Who doesn’t need a relaxing project for a lazy Sunday afternoon? This asymmetric wrap is just what you need to let the variegated yarn do all the hard work for you. Just sit back and enjoy an easy crochet project with a stunning result.



  • 3 x Scheepjes Invicta Color (974)
  • 4.0mm (US G/6) hook

Scheepjes Invicta Color was a classic variegated sock yarn with a 75% wool / 25% polyamide blend. This specific yarn is no longer available. A great replacement yarn is Scheepjes Our Tribe.

Scheepjes Our Tribe is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Love Crafts (USA), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) or your favorite Scheepjes Stockist.

Gauge and Size

Gauge is not essential for this project and it’s not needed to make a gauge swatch. If your gauge is similar to mine your final wrap will be approximately 200cm wide and 90cm at its widest point.


This pattern uses US crochet terms. If you are more familiar with UK crochet terms, please see this conversion table for the most common terms.

  • ch – chain
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • tr – treble crochet
  • bobble – tr5tog: 5 treble crochet stitches worked together
  • st(s) – stitch(es)
  • RS – right side
  • WS – wrong side
