Crochet Shawl Pattern Journey

I am on a quest to make a beautiful shawl for the amazing women in my family. I have made one for me too. There are a few shawls that I have already made and have posted those patterns you.  To make it easy for you to find them, I have provided the links for you below. They are on the patternprincess website though.  If you make one of your own, I would love for you to post your handiwork in the comments. I love it when I can help people create their own.

Views of the Beautiful Occasions Evening Shawl

A few months ago, I purchased a dress form. I think it is one of the best things I could have purchased. It is so nice to help show pictures of some examples of how the shawl could be worn. This also helps me take pictures of the shawl for closeups and different views.

Back View

The shawl is just laying over the shoulders. The lattice work on the back view is so nice. This really is an easy crochet pattern once you get started.

Wrapped Around body

Because this shawl was made a bit longer, it is easier to wrap around your body. This would be wrapped and tied in front; however, this view shows the wrap just draped around the body.

Side Views

Here are a number of different side views. I just love how the scalloped edge enhances the drape of the shawl. If you are interested in the pin I used, here is where you can get one that looks like the one in the picture.

Skill Level

I would rank this crochet pattern a one or two levels just beyond beginner. You certainly need to be able to do a chain, single crochet, double stitch, and read a pattern to be able to accomplish this. However, once a crocheter gets the hang of this pattern though, it is very easy to work and the results are beautiful.

Video of Crochet Pattern

If you are a person that would rather see a video of the stitches being done, I have a video link near the bottom. Note: this pattern is a bit wider and longer than the Victoria Lacy Shawl Crochet Pattern, but the stitches are the same except for the lacy edge. If you want to see the pattern video from the beginning, go to my you tube channel as it is there as the Victoria Lacy Shawl. I would love it if you would subscribe to my you tube channel-you would then be notified of any new crochet tutorials that are added.

Weekend or two Crochet Project

This Lacy Shawl is a pattern that goes quickly. If you need a gift for someone, that would make such a lovely gift. The shawl looks complicated to complete, but it is just two rows of setting up and the pattern repeats until your desired length. The border is crocheted as you complete each row. Saves time.

Finished Size

Laying flat, this shawl measures 20 inches wide X 68 inches long.

Yarn Used

Caron Simply Soft 3 skeins in off white. Each skein is approximately 315 yards and I used the entire 3 skeins or 945 yards of yarn. This is not only a soft yarn, it is washable and dryable. This is a nice feature especially since this is something that you would wear and it could get dirt on it.

Pattern Alteration

The pattern can be altered to any width or length that you desire. The width can be adjusted by adding or decreasing 8 plus 2 stitches for the foundational row of chain stitches. Along with changing the width of the pattern, you can make the shawl the length that works for you. While I used 3 full skeins of yarn, you may want yours shorter and only use 2 skeins. Be creative and make it a style that you want to use as a fashion staple.

    1. You are most welcome. Thank you so much for the compliment. I am trying to continue to improve my instructions as I get more experience and feedback. It means a lot. Glad to be sharing.

  1. Your shawl pattern is no doubt a gorgeous one BUT for the life of me i can’t follow the second row… i want to make this into my prayer shawl pattern that i do for homebound church members and cancer patients, PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND how to do ROW TWO. If possible to do a video demo for two rows . THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH.

  2. Love this pattern. I was hoping you would show how to do the border. It is so lovely. How you give direction for that soon. Thank you so much.

    1. The border is done as you complete each row. It is written in the pattern and the video shows this step as well. Take another look. Email me if you still have questions, and I will do my best to help you. Vicky

  3. Definitely a magnificent design, but easy? I read every word, follow a pattern word for word, but the reviews scare me. First, I’ll bookmark this pattern to visit the video when I can give your gorgeous design my best shot! Thank YOU!
