The Blush Bobble Shawl is a beautiful transitional shawl for fall. The texture and colors brightens up this wrap, while the fiber makes this shawl cozy to wear on chilly days. The bobbles give this shawl a playful and whimsical look, that makes this Blush Bobble shawl a beautiful piece that will be the focus of any outfit!
I’ve had this idea for a shawl with the bobbles for over a year. Every season when I planned out the patterns for the season, I included this design in the line-up. However every time I just never got around to making it.
If you follow me on Instagram than you will know that I dyed yarn with avocados this summer. I knew I didn’t want to just let this beautiful yarn sit in my stash for months (or years!) so I began brainstorming ideas for the perfect project for this yarn. I remembered this bobble shawl design I had envisioned in my head and I knew that it would be the perfect project for this yarn!
I have to admit, this project really was perfect for this yarn ;). I knew I was going to love it, but I just didn’t realize how well it would turn out until I finished.
This shawl was such a delight to make! It was so satisfying to see it grow larger and larger with every row! This was also my first time making an asymmetrical shawl, and I have to admit it will not be my last!
The yarn I used for the Blush Bobble Shawl is Southern Blooms Blanket and it was quickly become one of my favorite DK weight yarns! It is so soft and it is a delight to work with! For the pink hues that I dyed, I used the Bare colorway, but I also used the Bare for the bobbles as well.

- 565 total yards of DK weight (3) yarn. 500 yards for the main color(s) (see note #3), 65 yards for the contrasting color. I used US J/6.00mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- The pattern is worked in US crochet terms.
- This shawl is worked from one corner and is increased on one side.
- I used three different hues of blush yarn, and I have included the color changes in the pattern if you would like to follow the same color changes. However, I think this shawl would look beautiful with just two colors.

Rows 11-19: Repeat rows 7-8. Remember to keep increasing on the one side and this will cause the final st count for each row to increase by 1.
Row 20: Repeat row 10. NOTE because the number of stitches is constantly changing, it is impossible to always have 2 scs on both sides of the row. With each bobble row, start with 3 sc and continue working 3 scs in between every bobble until the end.
