- Yarn of your choice (select a color that complements your wardrobe)
- Crochet hook appropriate for your chosen yarn
- Stitch markers (optional)
- Yarn needle for weaving in ends
Step 1: Foundation Chain
- Begin by making a foundation chain. The length of your chain will determine the width of the shawl at its widest point. A typical starting chain might be around 4 feet (120 cm) long for a standard-sized shawl.
Step 2: Row 1
- Starting from the fourth chain from your hook (to create a turning chain), work 3 double crochets (dc) into the same chain.
- Chain 2, skip 2 chains, and work 4 dc into the next chain. Repeat from * to * across the row.
- At the end of the row, you should have a series of 4 dc clusters with chain-2 spaces in between.
- Chain 3 and turn your work.
Step 3: Subsequent Rows
- In this and all subsequent rows, start by working 3 dc into the first chain-2 space.
- Chain 2, work 4 dc into the next chain-2 space. Repeat from * to * across the row.
- At the end of each row, chain 3 and turn your work.
Step 4: Repeat
- Continue repeating Step 3 until your shawl reaches your desired length. You can make it as long or short as you like.
- Remember to keep the same pattern by working 4 dc clusters with chain-2 spaces in between.
Step 5: Edging (Optional)
- To add an elegant touch to your shawl, you can add an edging of your choice. A simple scalloped or picot edge works well.
- Finish off your work by weaving in any loose ends and blocking your shawl to shape it.
