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



Double Crochet Stitch

Chain Stitch

Single crochet Stitch


As all my projects say I never use gauge.

Love the Red & White


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.


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.

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.
