Victoria Lacy Shawl is Versatile

I used my dress form to show off this Victoria Lacy Shawl in a variety of different looks. In one of the photos, you will notice a beautiful cameo pin that adds beauty to this already beautiful shawl. I think anyone would feel pretty wearing this soft and stylish shawl. I hope these pictures give you some ideas on how to style this shawl.

In the picture below, the Victoria Lacy Shawl is wrapped around the shoulders. I like this look just as much as when it is hanging down and draping over the shoulders. I might add a pin on the shoulder to not only keep it in place, but to add a bit more beauty to the look.

This next picture shows the shawl is just draped over the shoulders. This is a close-up so you can see the stitches a bit better too.

Accent with a Pretty Pin

This beautiful cameo brooch is so pretty with this lacy shawl. It has the same color tones and I just love the style it adds.  I also like that I don’t have to continually pull and adjust the shawl, the pin keeps it in place nicely.

I tried to show you the generous size of this lacy shawl. It is folded in half and folded over a bit more to get this look.  The finished size of the shawl is approximately 14 inches wide by 64 inches long.

Cancer Prayer Shawl

Since designing this lacy crochet shawl pattern, I myself have been diagnosed with breast cancer. While my cancer was caught with a routine mammogram, it is still quite the medical ordeal, and I will deal with it for the rest of my life.

Remember to do the monthly checks. Get your mammogram done. Please make sure to take the time to get your regular medical check-ups done. Lastly, help a friend and remind them to get their check-up done. Stay healthy!

Update. It has been a year now since my cancer diagnosis. Thank you to all who have reached out to see how I am doing. Things are back to normal and I am cancer free. I still go to the doctor for check-ups, but all is good again.

Crochet for Those in Need

Those of us that have the talent to make beautiful things with our hands have the ability to uplift someone going through a tough time. Never did I think that the Victoria Lacy Shawl would take on so much more meaning. I hope that this shawl pattern will help support someone. If you know how to crochet, I challenge you to make at least one for a person in need.

Skill Level:

I would rank this crochet pattern a one or two levels just beyond beginner. I would recommend that you can complete a chain stitch, single crochet, and double stitch. Also, reading a pattern is a plus. There are video tutorials to help with the crochet pattern too.

It might seem like this would be a hard pattern; however, it is a wonderful repeating pattern. Once you get going a few rows, it is repetitive; therefore, it is very easy to work and the results are beautiful.

When I was designing this pattern, I must have started over at least 15 times before I could get it to look good on the ends and throughout. I am glad I kept trying though because I really love the look and feel of this lacy shawl.

Weekend or two Crochet Project

This Victoria 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.

Directions: Victoria Lacy Shawl

Finished Size: approximately 12 inches wide by 64 inches long.


2 Skeins yarn 6oz – Caron Simply Soft-Soft Pink

Total yarn used is just under 630 yards.

Size H (5mm) crochet hook

Yarn Needle



CH = Chain

DC = Double Crochet

SC = Single Crochet

ST = Stitches

SP = Space


Chain 82

Row 1:

SC in 2nd CH from Hook *CH 4, Skip the next 3 ST (SC, CH 3, 3DC) in the next CH, Skip the next 3 CH, SC in the next CH. Repeat from * ending with a SC in the last ST.

Complete Row 2, 2 Different Ways

(I have made this pattern with 2DC and with 3DC using the same foundational chain stitches). I have two videos below one showing the 2DC and one showing the 3 DC. No matter which one  you choose, they are both beautiful.

Row 2:

CH 5, SC, in the first CH 3 SP. In the same SP, (CH 3, 2 DC) or you could (CH 3, 3 DC). SC in the next CH 4 SP, *CH 4, (SC, CH 3, 2 DC) or you could (SC, CH 3, 3 DC) in the next CH 3 SP, SC in the next CH 4 SP. Repeat from the * until the last CH 4 SP – end with a SC. Turn

Repeating Row

Repeat row 2 until the desired length. this does not have a special border, as it is just beautiful and lacy just the way it is. Also, it is also much easier not to add a border, but you are welcome to add a border if you wish.


Cut yarn and pull through the last ST leaving about a ten inch tail. I like to use a yarn needle to weave in the end going in a variety of directions back and forth until it feels a bit secure. Then I cut the excess yarn. Make sure to go back to the starting row yarn and weave that in too.


The Caron Yarn is machine washable and dryable; however, I would probably wash by hand if you had to just to keep the shape. I have washed handmade crochet items in my wash in the past only to get something hooked on the agitator and ruin the item.

  1. It is lovely. I am trying to understand directions. You say to repeat row 3, however you only give directions for row 1 and 2. Thanks in advance. Kvh

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. It is a typo. It Can be 2DC or 3DC, I have made it both ways now. I hope you make a lovely shawl for yourself or one to give. Enjoy.

    1. I would add 8 stitches. This would allow you to complete one set of stitches: CH 4, (SC and 3 CH), 2 DC and SC Hope that helps. I would love to see your work after you complete it. You are welcome to post it back in the comments.

      1. You are off camera and then too close and it was too fast but I love the shawl. Could you redo this video?

  2. Hi! I managed to understand the pattern, video I mean. Looks like it will take a while for me to learn how to read one. Looking forward to make this for a friend. Thank you again for sharing this. x

  3. Dear Pattern princess1. Thank you for this beautiful pattern but I had a problem with this. After finishing 1 ball of yarn I found the width and length to be confusing. It does not look like the pattern in your diagram re width and length. Also in the second row the repeat is from the asterisk but in the video you seem to start from the 5 ch….and at the end you say do a the 4ch. Sorry if I am missing something, I would love to get a clearer idea of the pattern and perhaps a closer picture of the finished shawl. I really love this pattern and am so keen to continue. Thank you.

    1. I have made step-by-step photos to help you understand the pattern more. They are at the very bottom of the post. Hope you do continue. I am working on another one right now. The stitch really does work up to be a beautiful shawl.

  4. Hi I am confused with the instructions. 82 start doesn’t give the required width as it is way too long. Also Row 2 starts with 5 ch and continues till the end. In your instructions it says to repeat from* but from your video it seems to be from the beginning 5ch and then goes on to say at the end go into the 4 ch.and turn. Please clarify as I really love this shawl. Perhaps a close up of the finished shawl might help. Thank you

    1. I have made step-by-step photos to help you understand the pattern more. The Width should be approximately 14-15 inches. It looks like it will be long based on the length of the chain; however, when the stitches are worked, it seems to work out to the correct size.

        1. Glad you stopped back. I just uploaded a second video to help show the pattern. There are now also step-by-step pictures of the pattern near the bottom of the blog post. When you get yours done, I would love it if you posted a picture. I am rooting for you…

  5. The wrap is beautiful, and you have gone over and above to make your pattern understood! More power to you in this and future endeavors:-) Rachel D.

    1. Your kind words mean to much to me. I will keep working on writing good patterns that are easily understood. So glad that you took the time to comment and let me know my efforts are appreciated. I hope you enjoy making and wearing your own shawl.

  6. Hi, thank you, this pattern is beautiful. What are the multiples for the chain if I wanted a smaller scarf? I love the stitch.

    1. I would add 8 stitches. This would allow you to complete one set of stitches: CH 4, (SC and 3 CH), 2 DC and SC Hope that helps. I would love to see your work after you complete it. You are welcome to post it back in the comments.

  7. Love love love this pattern, so pretty and easy. I’m a you tube taught lefthanded crocheter and found your video (the first one) really easy to follow. Thank you

    1. Wow! Thank you so much. I am new to making crochet video tutorials. Your comment means to much to me. I am so glad that this helped you. I think this pattern is easy to do and so beautiful. I have posted another lacy wrap pattern and I am working on two other patterns right now. thanks for sharing with me.

  8. Beautiful shawl, but I’m confused. The instructions say 2 DC, The the photos show 3 DC. Also, I used the exact yarn and crochet hook, but mine measures 24 inches. Lol
    Is it 2 or 3 DC ? Thanks.

  9. It is a very lovely shawl, the instructions are easy to understand but I also am confused because the first set of printed instructions states 2dc, then in your first video you make 3dc, then in your second video you make 2dc, plus the step by step pictures are different again. I have bought the wool and am anxious to start—Help- please clarify!

  10. I love this pattern. I can tell by your responses to comments that you are a very nice lady and you are so patient. We all should be grateful you are taking time out to show us and help us by sharing your talents.
    I for one, am very grateful and have put this project on my to-do list. Thank you again ?

  11. Hello, love your pattern its beautiful! With that said im confused. Your written pattern says ch3, 3dc. But your first video says 2dc, and then the secound video says 3dc then I read through the comments and saw someone else adk the same question and you says its 2dc. So my question is, is it 2 or 3 dc?

  12. Hi love the shawl pattern. I also preferred the 3 DC style. I also saw that little error about a sc in the last cm 4 but knew it would be fine and continued as you wrote it. I made it as a prayer shawl for a very sick friend. We are all happy with it. Don’t know how to send pics. But my soft green Carons came out well. Ty

  13. Thank you for sharing this beautiful shawl pattern!! I am wondering if you have tried this with a finer yarn/thread and if so, what was your result and thoughts? Thank you!

  14. Thank you for this pattern. I tried this as a sample, it came out very pretty and quite easy too.i will try making the shawl too.

  15. I just finished a prayer shawl in Bernat Velvet bulky yarn using your Victorian lace pattern. I’m a novice crocheter and it turned out beautifully. I did do a double crochet border on both ends. Thank you for sharing your pattern. I would post a picture but not sure how? Thanks again!

  16. I’m a seasoned crocheter and I had a hard time getting started with this pattern (brain freeze). Once I got it it was so easy and so much fun to make the shawl. Thanks for a lovely pattern. Posting a picture on the Pinterest post.

  17. Thank you so very much for this pattern! The first few rows were difficult, but well worth the effort! The shawl I’m working on is coming out beautifully! I would encourage anyone who is considering making this, to jump in! After a few rows, you will be amazed at the beautiful project you are creating! I’ve posted about it on my blog and on Instagram. Thank you again!

  18. Thanks for the beautiful pattern I was a bit confused at first but have it sorted now and it’s turning out great . I have used a larger hook I will post when finished

  19. Thank you for the beautiful shawl pattern! I can’t wait to make it. I hope you beat the cancer and remain healthy! 3D mammos every year!

    1. Thank you for your kind words Colleen. I just had my first 3D mammogram two weeks ago. First one since all the cancer ordeal. Needless to say, I was nervous! Came back all good. I hope it stays away. Vicky

  20. patternprincess1,
    I am just starting to create your Victoria Lacy Shawl. I have crocheted many various projects for many years. For this project, I am using Caron Simply Soft, in a variegated yarn OCEANA. The colors are dark blue, royal blue, turquoise green. Very majestic deep jeweltones. I like your pattern, it’s one that one could easily pick up, and continue crocheting without re checking the pattern. Also, it looks like a quick project.! I just read your replies of your health, I hope you are doing well now !

    1. Thank you so much for asking! Two weeks ago, I just had my first clear mammogram. However, I have been very careful during this COVID time. My immune system is coming back, but I don’t want to take chances. Your colors sound like it will turn out just lovely. I would love to see if when you finish. So glad you like this pattern. It is one that has beautiful results and you can watch TV at the same time.
      My email is if you happen to send me a photo. Otherwise, you can post on social media and tag me too.
      Stay safe and healthy!

      1. Hi Vicky ! I just saw your reply to my post. Yes, I finished the Victoria Lacy Shawl, earlier on 7/11/20. Just in time to take with me to church the next day. The shawl is intended for a member of my church, who has been recently diagnosed with Stomach Cancer (endstage). I took it so the Pastor and the Congregation could pray over it.
        Like you, during this COVID time, I am also immuno-compromised, due to my various medical conditions. So I totally understand your feelings of being careful of all of these quarantine rules. I have lots of yarn and patterns for several projects to work on to keep me occupied. Glad that your 1st Mammogram after treatment was all clear ! God IS SO GOOD ! P.S. Will try to send a picture thru email, or social media to your email address ) Take Care !!❤

  21. Thank you for your lovely pattern! I’ve already made it once in a lovely pink and am making it again, this time in an ombré. I am in a prayer shawl ministry in my church and this pattern looks so intricate and delicate but actually does up fast and is fun to do!! Again, thank you and many blessings! Gail

  22. I am new t crochet, and I made the scarf. It took me a few attempts to start, but I finished and I’m happy with the end result. Thank you for sharing your pattern!

    1. I am so happy to hear that you didn’t give up. It is good to hear that a person new at crochet can master this too. Enjoy your lovely shawl. Thanks for taking the time to let me know.

    1. I have worked with velvety yarn and I think that the Victoria Lacy Shawl is a bit too lacy to use the velvet yarn with. I think that the slippery yarn would work out in places and have undesirable loops. This pattern I recently finished would be lovely as a baby blanket. I am also working on a mint colored velvet blanket with half double crochet v-stitches that is turning out wonderful too. I hope to have the blanket done and the pattern posted in a few weeks.
