Crochet your own eye-catching lace shawl with this free pattern.
Spill is a shawl worked in rows in a gradient yarn, with short rows used to create a gradual, off-center color change. Crochet it with a long color-shifting yarn, or use a few different colors to create asymmetrical stripes.
The finished shawl is a crescent shape that measures about 48” (122 cm) along the inside curve and about 14” (35.5 cm) deep in the center.

The shawl pictured was made with handspun merino wool yarn. I spun the dyed braid from end to end very fine, then chain-plied it. The spinning seemed to take forever and it was only 4 ounces, but the result was so worth it.

I’ve created a separate post discussing the conception and construction of this shawl in more detail. You can read all about it here: The Making of the Spill Crochet Shawl.
The information is not needed to complete the shawl. However, if you’d like more details about my design process for this project and how I determined the stitch counts for each row (or are wondering how to enlarge it while keeping the increases consistent), you may find it interesting.
