Free Crochet Shawl Pattern: Sprout Chains Shawlette

Pattern #1

Sprout Chains Shawlette by Kristin Omdahl from Crochet So Fine

This easy crochet shawl features long chain and solo single crochet stitch patterns for an easy to memorize design. The fringe border is easy to make because the flowers are worked right into the border, even though they look like they were crocheted as separate motifs. The best part about this pattern is that it is truly relaxing and quick; you could work up this simple design in a flash to add to your wardrobe or to give as a shawl to a friend in need.

Irish Crochet Shawl Pattern: Flowers for Eryn Wrap

Pattern #2

Flowers for Eryn Wrap by Tracy St. John

This beautiful Irish shawl was inspired by Tracy’s love of recycling vintage techniques as fresh concepts. The traditionally delicate Irish crochet paired with a robust, slightly fuzzy yarn results in a classic update of this timeless technique. The floral motifs at the center and ends of the lace shawl are set off beautifully by the simplicity of the shell-stitched panels and mesh borders. The length of the wrap is easily adjusted for the just right size shawl. Fall in love with the flowers with this free crochet shawl pattern.

Easy Crochet Shawl Pattern: Waffle Lattice Shawl

Pattern #3

Waffle Lattice Shawl by Elin Nybø

Composed of nothing but crochet chains attached in a lattice pattern, this easy crochet shawl pattern can be completed in an afternoon. The pattern is worked from base to mesh, finished with slip stitches, then lightly felted for a fuzzy texture. This light and airy design would also be a wonderfully simplistic pattern for prayer shawls. You’ll love experimenting with creative ways to wear this striking design.

Lace Shawl Patterns to Crochet: Chanson En Crochet

Pattern #4

Chanson En Crochet By Mari Lynn Patrick from Wrap Style

Mari began this dainty shawl with a simple crochet chain, forming the neck edge. Adding some fun and unusual crochet stitches in bands give the lace a graceful form. Each stitch is clearly explained so more novice crocheters aren’t intimidated by the changing stitches. The increases that shape the lace shawl are worked as an integral part of each stitch pattern, so the circumference grows with each pattern band. A row of picots around the neck and lower edgings and a vintage button add the finishing touches to this beautiful shawl.

Free Crochet Prayer Shawl Patterns: Crochet a Hug

Pattern #5

Crochet a Hug by Marcy Smith

Drawing on the tradition of crochet prayer shawl patterns, this lace design features a meditative stitch pattern based on a trinity count. Simple and easy, this shawl can be worked as a solid color or with striping as featured in the original project. Its bulkiness allows you to work it up fast, for folks in need of immediate comfort. This pattern can also be easily sized up for an afghan, or down for a scarf, making it the perfect versatile pattern to keep around.
