Crochet lace shawls and wraps are more popular than ever. One of the wonderful things about crochet lace is the speed. Once you get your foundational rows complete, the inches just fly by!

Since crochet lace has open spaces, you will use less yarn. Therefore, crochet lace is very budget friendly. Since the shawl only uses 2 skeins of yarn, splurge on the better yarn so you have just the right amount of drape, color, and softness that you prefer.

Crochet Shawl Pattern Journey

If you have been following me, you will know that I am on a quest to make a beautiful shawl for the amazing women in my family. This Lacy Lindsey Crochet Shawl is the fourth one.

While all the patterns are on this website, I have saved you the trouble of searching for each one. You will find photos below with links for you. I hope this inspires you to make one for yourself or to give as a cherished gift to someone special.

Views of the Lacy Lindsey Crochet Shawl

I am so happy to be able to share this new shawl with you. As I look back at the beautiful shawls that are included in this quest, they remind me so much of the beautiful women that they have been made for.

These have not been gifted to them yet. I want to do it all at once when we are together, and I want to make it something special.

Back View

This is the back view with the shawl just laying over the shoulders. As you can see, once you get the pattern started, it repeats until you reach the desired length.

Front View

There are a variety of ways to wrap the lacy shawl around your body. Here are two ideas on how you might choose to wear the shawl.

In this first view, the shawl is wrapped around the body and held in place by a beautiful ruby colored brooch.

I love how the edge of the shawl drapes around the neck. This would look wonderful paired with everyday jeans.

In this second view, the shawl is draped over the shoulders and the brooch is holding the lacy shawl in place in the front.

This not only helps keep the shawl in place, the look of a collar is achieved using this method. Look dressed up and elegant with little effort.

Skill Level

Once started, this crochet pattern works up like a dream. It just takes a bit to set it up. Therefore, it is probably almost an intermediate pattern.

You need to be able to crochet a chain stitch, single crochet, and double crochet stitch. However, once you master the initial row, you will be able to complete the entire pattern.

Repetitive Crochet Pattern

Once I figured out what this pattern would be, it was a pleasure to make. Those patterns that can be made while watching movies with my family are always welcome in my world. The pattern repeats the second row throughout until the desired length is reached.

Finished Size

Laying flat, this shawl measures 18 inches wide X 51 inches long

Yarn Used

Caron Simply Soft 2 skeins of Soft Blue. Each skein is 315 yards and since I used 2 skeins, this crochet pattern will use 630 yards of yarn. This yarn is soft, and according to the package directions, it is also washable and dryable.

Pattern Alteration

This pattern can be altered to any width or length that you require. The pattern is worked in multiples of 8 + 17. Since this pattern is worked the width of the pattern, to adjust the length of the pattern, just add or decrease the rows.

Row two is the row that is repeated throughout this crochet pattern. I thought since I had one person with a few questions, that there may be more folks. Here are the beginning stitches of row 2.

I’m loving working this shawl! Your instructions are clear and easy to follow! I am in a prayer shawl ministry and your beautiful patterns are my “go to” choices! I have a question about finishing the starting edge to match the working edge? Do you have any suggestions on how I could do an edging? Thank you so much..God Bless!

Hi Gail, Thank you so much. It warms my heart to hear this. I have been thinking about this a few days, I'm thinking that if you go back once the shawl is done, joining the yarn and working the same stitches worked in each row it would work. Just make sure to reduce the number of rows to you have enough yarn to work this last row. Hope this helps. Vicky

Hey, I am using this pattern to make a baptismal blanket to donate to one of the churches in my town. I love the pattern and have it down pat. What I was wondering is if there is a way to square it off when I reach the desired size. I want the top end to be flat so I can add a border to it. How would you go about that? Thanks!


Friday 1st of November 2019

Great Idea. I might just have to try that and see what I can come up with. Maybe do a single crochet all the way around the blanket first, then add a pretty border. I would love to see how it turns out. Vicky

I was so excited to do this pattern but l am so lost. I wish you would have done the video a little slower so l could follow along. I must of rewind it about 24 times and still, l can't see what stitch you are going in. What confuses me is the start of row 2...I wish l could see and understand what you are doing... It is a beautiful shawl. Your Truly Laurie B
