Beginner Crochet Free Pattern - Shawl

Updated on June 20, 2013

Being Single, I never get any gift on Valentine's day. To make me happy, I gift myself something every year and this year it was a crochet Shawl.

Materials Required:

J/10 6 mm Crochet Hook

Caron International One Pound: Red

Red Heart super Saver: White

Tapestry Needle

Scissors

Stitches:

Double Crochet Stitch

Chain Stitch

Single crochet Stitch

Gauge:

As all my projects say I never use gauge.


Love the Red & White

Pattern

Ch 185 (You can chain as many as you want. Depends on how long / short you want the shawl to be)

Foundation Row: Dc in the 3rd chain from the hook. Dc in each ch across and turn

Row 1-18: Ch 2 (counts as first Dc), Dc in each chain across and turn.

You can repeat row 1 as many times as you want. It depends on how wide / narrow you want your shawl to be. I wanted it to be more wider than what it is, but as I was using a scrap yarn from my Mario project, I could only make it about 18 lines.

Fasten off once you have the desired width.

Embroidery:

With White, use embroidery chain stitch as you want on the shawl (There is no specific pattern that I use to embroider on the shawl). Use crochet hook instead of the tapestry needle. Place the wool under the shawl and pull up a loop with the crochet hook. Insert the hook a little further away and pull up another loop. Repeat this till you have the embroidery pattern.

Tassels

Pattern:

Using the left over white yarn from the Mario Project, I made the tassels.

Step 1: Cut 2 strands of yarn of the desired length (Should be twice as long as the length of the actual tassel required)

Step 2: Gather the strands and fold them in half.

Step 3: Insert the hook in the stitch where you want to place the tassel

Step 4: Insert the hook in the middle of the folded strands and pull all the strands through the stitch.

Step 5: Wrap the loose ends of the yarn and pull them through the loop formed. (One Tassel Made)

Repeat Step 1 – 5 (18 times, one for each row)

To make it neat pull of the tassels firm and trim off the edges to have a straight edging.
