My Sweethearts Shawl is a simple to make project featuring puffy hearts and simple stitches. I have crocheted my Sweethearts Shawl as part of the #HobbiiShadesofRed challenge sponsored by Hobbii.

As part of this fun challenge I was encouraged to find yarn that made me think of love, and warmth and Valentine’s Day. When I browsed the yarns available from Hobbii I had a few colors that called out to me but decided on Cascata yarn in the shade Nachi. #hobbiicascata

Cascata is made from a blend of 61% cotton and 39% acrylic fibers. This blown cake yarn boasts a radiant shine that will add a touch of magic to any project. I love how the strand seems to glow from within. The seamless color transitions were perfect for this project. Nachi slowly moves from vibrant pinks to warm reds, to delicate rose, and even a hint of rich burgundy.

It made crocheting this project easy and quick since I didn’t need to change between different shades of red and weave in multiple ends. Just 4 ends in total for the entire project!

Each Cascata ball contains a generous amount of yarn; 437 yards (400 m). For my Sweethearts Shawl, which measures 17 inches wide X 62 inches long, I only needed 2 balls in total.

Now that Hobbii’s Shades of Red Challenge is complete, I’m happy to share some love with you too by making the pattern to for my Sweethearts Shawl available for free in my post below.

Along with the shawl size I made, I have included a few projects and sizes for you to make with this stitch pattern and yarn. Check the sizes section below for 4 different scarf sizes, 2 more shawl sizes, an adult throw size and an adult afghan size.
