Breath of Life Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern
I love making accessories, but when temps get warm it’s harder to work with yarn. The new Breath of Life shawl is the perfect pattern for spring ro summer because it uses lightweight yarn. This gorgeous shawl will be introduced as a CAL and will run for approx. 3 weeks. I’d love for you to join us! You can find current updates, as well as project photos, in my Facebook group.
The Breath of Life Shawl was originally done as a CAL in my FB group. To get the other parts of the pattern visit the links below.

Apologies but I couldn’t find the pattern on revelry? Also how do you join the cal please?
I apologize. The photos are not ready, so I don’t have finished pics to add the pattern yet. Hopefully in the next couple days!
Sorry but I couldn’t find this pattern anywhere either???
Sorry, it will be ready as soon as I have finished pics to add the pattern. Hopefully in the next couple days!
I have RH It’s A Wrap in Drama that work out nicely for this piece
Is the 3rd loop different from the back loop? I can not figure it out from the pictures. Thanks in advance!
All crochet stitches have 2 loops at the top, which are usually referred to as front and back loops. On a half double crochet if you tilt the 2 top stitches forward there is a 3rd horizontal loop at the back of the stitch. You will be using that one when referring to the 3rd loop. If you need more help let me know and I can get a quick video uploaded for you.
Thank you so much, Kristine! I see the horizontal loop. :)
Oh yay! I’m glad that helped.
