The Hot Chili crochet pattern by Carmen Heffernan is a bright and colorful garment perfect for summer weather. With Scheppel-Wolle Zauberball fingering yarn and a 4.5 mm crochet hook, you’ll create this piece with ease.

The author chose a vibrant red and pink colorway. But the fact is, this design would look just as good in any other shade combination. You can stick with fingering weight or go for DK or worsted yarn if you want to achieve a chunkier result.

For a beautifully draped shawl, use a larger crochet hook than recommended. This will make spaces between stitches bigger, emphasizing the look of the V-stitch and shell pattern. On one side, the decreases are visible, forming “teeth” on the edge of the shawl to create a distinct effect.

Whether worn over your shoulders on balmy summer nights or folded up and bout for a scarf, this shawl is bound to be a hit.
