When I created the All About That Drape Top, I knew the stitch pattern would also be perfect for a shawl. As soon as I was able, I set about creating this beautiful piece. 

Lacy and textured stitches combine with gorgeous, superfine weight yarn to make a soft and wonderfully drapey shawl that will add warmth and style to any outfit. This project works up quickly, so you may be tempted to make one in every colour! 

How To Crochet The Free Crochet Shawl Pattern – All About That Drape

Finished Sizes:

Instructions given to make a shawl that measures 54” W x 31” H before blocking and 67” W x 34” H after blocking with added notes for making a larger shawl. 

Abbreviations:

RS = Right Side

WS = Wrong Side

Sk = Skip

St = Stitch

Ss = Slip Stitch

Ch = Chain

Sc = Single Crochet

Dc = Double Crochet

Tr = Treble Crochet

Vst = V Stitch (See Notes)

BLO = Back Loop Only

FLO = Front Loop Only

3rd LO = 3rd Loop On

BPDC = Back Post Double Crochet

Materials:

I used Yarn Bee Rainbow Wrapsody, which is 60% cotton, 40% acrylic #1 Superfine weight yarn.

Any yarn of similar weight would work. 

Approximately 918 yds to make the size shown. 

4mm Hook

Stitch Markers

Yarn Needle

Scissors

Measuring Tape

Gauge:

The gauge swatch for this shawl is worked into the pattern. If you are aiming for a shawl the same size as mine, I recommend you try to follow the gauge. If not, the gauge doesn’t really matter too much. Just be sure to use the proper hook size for the yarn you are using so you can achieve a nice drape. 

Notes:

Ch1 at the beginning of a row is never considered a stitch. 

Ch1 between stitches does count as a stitch.

Ch3 at the beginning of a row is considered a dc.

A Vst consists of a (dc, ch1, dc) all in one stitch.

Weave in your ends, and you’re done! Depending on the fiber content of your yarn you may wish to block your project. The yarn I used is 60% cotton/40% acrylic. Wet blocking helped to stretch out the lace, define the stitches, and increase the overall size of my shawl. My shawl was 54” W x 31” H before blocking and 67” W x 34” H after blocking. 

I hope you love your new crochet shawl, and I look forward to seeing all of your beautiful pictures on Ravelry!
