Gauge is not critical for this project.

This pattern is made up of plain rows of single crochet starting at one end of the shawl, with increase rows and decrease rows at regular intervals at each end.

The shawl is then bordered with single crochet all the way around, and an edging is crocheted to the bottom edge.


Crescent-shaped shawls like this one are quite popular at the moment since they use a relatively small amount of yarn and yet still look substantial. Their shape gives them a unique versatility that allows them to be worn in different seasons, and in many different styles. Worn long, like a scarf, the curved shape produces a soft ruffle. Place it across the shoulders like a shawl, or wrap it around the neck like a cowl, and the curve helps it stay put. Tuck the ends under, use a pin, tie the ends together, or let it hang straight for many different looks.

I hope you enjoy making and wearing this shawl!

There is a symbol missing from the chart at the end of row three…instead of just a chain stitch, the second last stitch of the row should be a 2dc cluster, just like at the beginning of the row.
