I made this simple little shawl after looking at the Dragonfly Shawl and being too lazy to do that one!

Materials List

G hook

fingering weight or sock yarn - at least one skein, but if you want to make it bigger, you will need more yarn

yarn needle

pins and a surface for blocking - I used large push pins and did it on my wooden deck

Finished Size

it's up to you!


not important


This pattern is written by a lazy person, so your going to have to use your noggin to work it out. It is more of a sketch than an all out pattern. Good luck! I know you can do it! (I am also a very friendly person who is more than willing to answer questions and help you along.)

 If you would like to buy the full version of this pattern - complete with charts!  I changed the name to Shawlette de Veronique and it is available in my Ravelry store http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/shawlette-de-veronique

The Pattern

Logwood Shawlette

abbreviations :

ch = chain

ch 2 sp = chain 2 space

slst = slip stitch

dc = double crochet


special stitches :

Shell = 2dc, ch3, 2dc

v = 1dc, ch1, 1dc

V = 1dc, ch3, 1dc


To begin :

ch 6, join in a circle with a slst,

ch 5, (dc in ring, ch 2) x 5

For the rest of the shawl :

start each row with the following : ch 5, 3dc in ch 2 sp, ch 3

end each row with the following : ch 3, 3dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, dc in same ch 2 sp

the very middle of each row will always be a Shell

the main idea for this shawl is based on repeating a 5 row pattern of increase :

1. V, ch 3, shell, ch 3, V

2. v in ch 3 sp, V in V, v in ch 3 sp, ch 3, shell in shell, ch 3, v in ch 3 sp, V in V

3. v in v, ch 1, V in V, ch 1, v in v, ch 3, shell in shell, ch 3 v, ch 1, V, ch 1, v

4. v, ch 2, V, ch2, v, ch 3, shell, ch 3, v, ch 2, V, ch 2, v

5. V, ch3, shell, ch 3, V, ch 3, shell, ch 3, V, ch 3, shell, ch 3, V


continue on repeating this pattern and you will end up with a very ruffly shawl

I didn't want it to be so ruffly, so I started doing treble crochet instead of double after a while

block it out with pins to open up the lace and achieve the best drape

Here is a picture of the shawl before blocking

Oh, totally WOW! I'm a sucker for shawls and this is one of the best I've seen. I ordered a dragon shawl pattern off of etsy (the only one I've ever bought) and it's beautiful but I got bogged down and gave up. Now this one, I'm putting on my list to make for ME! Thanks so much for posting it.

Hugs and blessings,

Beautiful, very well done.

It's on par with it's knitted counterparts.

Hi Chris,

I am glad you like the shawl. I'm not sure what you mean about writing it out, as I thought that is what I did above. You are welcome to make a copy and share it with friends, but I ask that you give me full credit for the design. If you mean write it out row by row and then call it your own, I would not be okay with that. I am planning writing it out and making a chart for it someday so I can sell it on Ravelry. Of course you are welcome to write it out row by row, as long as you still give me credit for the design. I hope this message sounds as friendly as I mean it to. :) -Sarah
