A shawl is a large piece of fabric that is generally worn wrapped loosely around the shoulders and arms. It can also be worn wrapped around the neck and head. Recently it’s been popular to wear triangular shawls backwards around the neck astriangle scarves”. Variations on the shawl, or items considered similar to shawls, include shawlettes, stoles, wraps and capelets. One type of shawl is the prayer shawl (or meditation shawl or friendship shawl); the crocheter prays or thinks kind thoughts for the recipient as the shawl is being crafted.

How Big is a Crochet Shawl?

You can make your crochet shawl any size that you want and you will find that crochet shawl patterns have a lot of variation in size. This is actually nice because you can substitute yarns in shawl patterns and it won’t be a big deal if it changes the size a bit. Que disse, most average crochet shawls are between 50and 70across at the widest point. This widest point is sometimes called thewingspan”. The shorter side varies greatly; between 17and 25for an adult-size shawl is a good starting point but this can be very different.

Basic Crochet Shawl Shapes

You can crochet a shawl in almost any shape that you want to, É claro, but the four most common shapes for a crochet shawl are:

1. Rectangle Shawl. The rectangular shawl is a great shawl shape to start with since it is easy to create even as a beginner crocheter. You can turn almost any crochet scarf pattern into a shawl by making it larger.

2. Triangle Shawl. The triangular shape is one of the most popular shawl shapes. It is often worked top down as one solid piece although there are many variations on how it can be constructed.

3. Half Circle Shawl. The half circle shawl is basically a variation on the triangle shape but of course it has softer edges. -, também, is a popular choice.

4. Circle Shawl. The full circle isn’t a common shawl shape but every once in awhile you’ll see a circle shawl and that stands out from the crowd.

Doris Chan’s Chrysanthemum Tea Shawl is an example of a circle-shaped shawl

So to make a very basic crochet shawl you would just choose one of these shapes, determine the stitch pattern that you want to use and then crochet away. Por exemplo, you could crochet a 60wide chain and then do decreasing single crochet rows to create a triangle shaped basic shawl. Or you could start at the bottom of a triangle and increase stitches (see Vashti’show to increase crochet stitches like a pro!”) until you get the size shawl you want.

You can get some ideas for more unusual crochet shawl shapes, like the L-shaped shawl, De CrochetKim.

Enhancing the Basic Crochet Shawl

Some of the most common ways to add on to the basic triangle, rectangle or circle shawl are:

  1. Add fringe; this gives it both decoration and length
  2. Add tassels to the corners; o Easiest Shawl Ever pattern on Crochet Me shpws this

  4. Create a collar
  5. Accessorize it; por exemplo, you can belt a crochet shawl!
  6. Add botões
  7. Decorate with appliques, beads or ribbons
  8. Felting
  9. Make your own shawl pin; learn how here

Crochet Shawl Tips from the Experts

Work Side to Side So You Don’t Run Out of Yarn. Designer LilyGo mentions in her Laura crochet shawl pattern: “Laura is a crescent shaped shawl worked from side to side in one piece, both the body and the edging. With this construction, you don’t have to worry about run out of yarn. Just make sure you weigh your yarn in the beginning and do the other half when halfway through (or a little before, to be safe).”

Play with Math. If you’re skilled at some basic math you can use that to turn almost any gauge swatch you make into a triangular shawl. Kristin Omdahl explains this a little bit in a Crochet Insider interview, saying in part: “Take a gauge swatch and figuring out how to make it 60 inches wide for the long edge of the triangle, and how many stitches you need to decrease to make it 30 inches long when you’re done with the decreases.

Larger Hooks for Lacier Looks. Milobo mentions in the Eva’s Shawl pattern below that: “To get a nice lacy shawl you will need to use a larger hook size than that normally recommended for the weight of yarnplay with different hook sizes until you are happy with the results.This varies depending on your yarn type and stitch pattern but it’s a good rule of thumb to be aware of.

Block your Crochet Shawl. Erica Jakofsky diz: “Did your shawl come out slightly smaller than you anticipated? If it’s made out of a natural fiber you can wet block it to larger dimensions. To do this simply wet your shawl, pat dry (just enough so it’s not dripping), and stretch out on a flat surface. Gently pull and shape your shawl to your satisfaction.You can learn more about blocking shawls and get a full tutorial from designer Lisa Naskrent.
