How to crochet the Haylee Rectangle Shawl, an easy, cozy rectangle shawl worked in simple half double crochet stitches. 3 sizes included, but it’s so easy to customize the size!

Haylee is a beginner friendly series, and this shawl is a great project to pair with watching your favorite TV show or movie. You don’t even have to count rows if you don’t want to! You can use a soft tape measure to measure as you go, and stop at the width and length desired, though I will be providing row counts for each size in the written pattern.

Now, I’ve used Emma’s Yarn Washable Worsted for my shawl, but you can use any worsted weight yarn from your stash – pick your favorite! If the finished size is essential to you, then check your gauge, but if not, then just start crocheting. Some of my other favorite worsted weight yarns for shawls, especially against the wind, are going to be Lion Brand Wool Ease and WeCrochet Swish.

Video tutorial included.

Material Notes:
Yarn Alternatives: Lion Brand Wool Ease, WeCrochet Swish, Berroco Vintage; Non-Wool: WeCrochet Brava, Lion Brand Heartland, Lion Brand Basic Stitch

Why switch to a smaller crochet hook for the border? In my experience, a change in tension causes ruffles in the border, especially seen on the sides. My quick fix is to simply go down a hook size. You can also continue with the same hook you’ve been working with, and just block the finished shawl.

I like to use locking stitch markers to help me keep track of the number of rows I’ve worked. I place them every 50 rows.

Time Spent:
I worked up the 15” by 60” size in about 11 and a half hours.

3 Women’s sizes included. These sizes are average adult sizes. It really all depends on your preferences, like if you like to wear it more like a scarf or wrap around your shoulders and arms, and how much overhang you like on your shawl.

Gauge (not essential) with H8/5mm Hook:
16 HDC by 12 Rows = 4 1/8”

A really easy way to check your shawl is to measure after about 6 rows. This will be the finished width of your shawl (unless you add a border). It’s so easy to work up until you reach the length that you like, and you don’t even need to count your rows - you can measure as you go with a tape measure.

Abbreviations (US Terms):

  • DC - Double Crochet
  • SC - Single Crochet
