The colours and pattern in this Summer Day Shawl reminds me of clouds moving across a beautiful blue sky!
Not only do the colours and stitches remind me of lazy summer afternoons, but it is also worked in a light weight yarn making it the perfect accessory for those warmer days and evenings.

For this shawl I have used two of the Caron Skinny Cakes by Yarnspirations. They are 100% acrylic and light weight. So if you would like to substitute this yarn for another, I would find something similar.
The pattern is worked in rows lengthwise. The first row of single crochet stitches can be a challenge as you will work into a long foundation chain. If this seems daunting to you, you may wish to begin with a row of foundation single crochet stitches instead of the chain and first row of single crochet.
For this pattern you will also need a 4 mm crochet hook. I will be using a wooden streamline hook in Ebony by Furls Crochet.

To make tassels, cut 5.5-6 inch lengths of yarn. I used four strands of yarn for each tassel. Place tassels along the two ends of the throw beginning in the first stitch and then continuing in every second stitch. Once all tassels are attached, trim tassels to make an even fringe.
