The Rainbow crochet Boomerang shawl is an easy 2-row repeat making it perfect for beginners. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to make this shawl style, this is a great pattern to start with. You can mindlessly work away while watching TV or chatting with friends.

The Yarn

The Rainbow Boomerang is crocheted in Felici Worsted Weight Yarn from WeCrochet. There are several bright and fun colours to choose from. It’s super soft, machine washable and self-striping. It’s the perfect yarn for any next-to-skin, everyday accessories, scarves, cowls, hats, or baby clothes.

The Hooks

I used my Furls Odyssey hook for this design. It glides effortlessly with this yarn, and there are so many pretty colours to choose from. The odyssey is quickly becoming one of my favourite hooks, especially when I’m working with a 4.5mm or smaller. I’ve been growing my collection and have these beautiful colours so far.

The pattern is simple and quick but I still included a video tutorial on my YouTube channel. The most important thing to remember with a crochet boomerang shawl is it needs to be blocked. As you work it will curl. This is completely normal. it just needs a good soak and block to finish it off.

What I love about a crochet boomerang shawl is how well it fits. It’s natural shape curves perfectly around your neck, staying in place. I used 2 balls to make my shawl, but if you want it larger as a wrap or just for more coverage, use 3-4 balls.
