The TERESA SHAWL is a collaboration project with Teresa, the owner of Fuzzy What Knots.

This shawl pattern is reversible with 2 beautiful pattern designs on both sides. Two border and edging pattern options were included --- the Pompom Stitch and the Fringe. Either option provides a great-looking finishing touch. You can’t go wrong either way!

3DC-CL – 3 Double Crochet Cluster – Yarn over, insert hook in a st/sp, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook, (yarn over, insert hook in the same st/sp, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook) 2 times, yarn over, pull through all 4 loops on hook.

Pompom Edging Stitch (Pom St) – Ch 3, 3DC-cl in the 3rd ch from the hook (1st cluster just made), ch 3, 3DC-cl in the 3rd ch from the hook (2nd cluster just made). To form the pompom, fold the clusters and sl st to where the 1st cluster begins. Helpful video (not mine).


  1. Read the pattern carefully before starting.
  2. The beginning ch 3 counts as 1 DC, while ch 1 does not count as a st.
  3. Stitch markers are optional but recommended. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the row and move as work progresses.
  4. Asterisks * * indicates pattern repeats. You need to repeat instructions between asterisks as many times as directed or repeat at specified locations.
  5. Parentheses ( ) are used to work instructions within parentheses as many times as directed or work a group of stitches all in the same stitch or space.
