Easy Crochet Shawl Pattern

The holidays are approaching which can mean many things: family gatherings, opening presents with loved ones, delicious food and of course crocheting. If there’s anything better than sitting next to a warm fire on a winter night while creating something handmade, I am not sure what that is.

Crocheting a Mrs. Claus shawl is a great way to get in the Christmas spirit too. Not only does it have an adorable design, but it’s also easy and fun to crochet. You might be surprised at just how quick and simple this project really is.

Crochet Pattern Notes

Shawl is worked from side-to-side first and the crochet border is added to one side after the main part of the shawl is complete.

Turn at the end of each row.

In the first half of the shawl, the stitches increase by 1 stitch for each row.

In the second half of the shawl, the stitches decrease by 1 stitch for each row.

The lacy border consists of 3 rows of crochet.

There are video tutorials below the written directions on how to crochet the Mrs. Claus Shawl.

This crochet pattern uses the double crochet 2 together. If this is new to you, here is more information.

While this pattern uses a lacy fingering weight yarn, it would be wonderful worked with worsted weight yarn. I have made another shawl similar to this one, Journey Through the Stones.

Double Crochet Two Together (DC2Tog)

This decreases the double crochet stitches by one double crochet stitch each time this is worked.

Yarn over, insert hook into next stitch and pull up a loop. There will be three loops on the crochet hook. Yarn over, pull through two loops on the hook. There should now be just two loops left on the hook.

Yarn over and insert the hook into the next stitch and pull up a loop. There will be four loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through two loops. There should now be just three loops on the hook. Lastly yarn over and pull through the remaining three loops.

Here is a video tutorial on DC2Tog
