This pattern is available for free.

While there are multiple granny square style shawl patterns available, there were none available that were exactly what I wanted (either due to yarn weight or pattern specifics), so I decided to make my own! I hope you enjoy it!


56” (142 cm) wingspan before blocking, 68” (173 cm) wingspan after blocking (but adjustable to your liking by just adding or subtracting rows)


  • 6 skeins of Lion Brand Landscapes (New Aran) in colorway 204 Desert Spring or 882 yards (807 m) of an aran weight yarn of your choice
  • 6.0 mm/US J hook
  • Finishing items: scissors, tapestry needle, blocking pins & mats

Gauge is not important, just crochet until the shawl is the size you want!


  • Blocking is not required, it is up to your personal preference

  • Keep in mind that adjusting the size will also change the required amount of yarn

  • The other pictured example uses a DK weight yarn, King Cole Riot, with the 6.0 mm/US J hook for a lacier feel; this is a great example of how you can customize the pattern to your liking!

  • Pattern testing & the King Cole Riot example were done by the lovely Claire, owner of the blog Mollie & Claire. Thank you Claire!
