Edit April 9, 2021:
I have a video tutorial! it was linked at the bottom of this post.
I could not think up of a name for this shawl. I made this shawl for my church. Most of stash now comes from the free yarn that is given away at my church, so I thought it would be a good ideal to make a shawl for their prayer shawl program.
So now onto the pattern. I have many vintage craft magazines and I came across a picture of this cute pattern. Except when I read the pattern, it did not made sense. There is no way the instructions was going to make the bow pattern in the picture.
So I figured out how to make the pattern and now here is the instructions for my shawl.
16 ounces Worst Weight Yarn
Size J hook
Row 1: Chain 67, sc in the second chain from hook, sc in remaining chains across. You have 66 sc.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc) skip a sc, dc in the next 2 sc * ch 4, skip 3 sc, dc in the next 3 sc* repeat to the last 3 sc, dc in each of the last 3 sc, ch 3, turn
Row 3: Skip a dc, dc in the next 5 dc, * ch 3, skip the ch 4's and dc in each of the three dc* repeat until the end, ch 3, turn (remember turning chain counts as a dc)
Row 4: Skip first dc, dc in the next 2 dc * ch 3, sc AROUND the ch 4 space and ch 3 space from the previous two rows, ch 3, dc in the next 3 dc* repeat until the last 3 dc, dc in the last 3 dc's, ch 3, turn
|Start of Row 4.|

A lovely shawl - I'll be adding it to my ever-longer WIP file :)ReplyDelete
Very lovely shawl - it looks so lightweight - RhonddaReplyDelete
Lovely shawl. Beautiful pattern, thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful pattern! Thanks for sharing it!ReplyDelete
Cute shawl! I like the stitch!ReplyDelete
Navy Wifey Peters @ Submarine Sunday Link Party
The shawl is lovely, and I really like the colour you have used :)ReplyDelete
What does it mean to Sc 'around' the ch 4?ReplyDelete
You are not only just crocheting around the ch 4 , but the chain 3 from the previous rows, this is what creates the bow.ReplyDelete
Trying this pattern, but alittle confused. Row 3 says dc in 5dc from row 2. But there is only 3dc in previous row. Please help.ReplyDelete
At the end of row 2, you should have 6 dc at the end.ReplyDelete
Is there a gauge for the size crochet hook you've given? I'd like to make mine a little bit wider, but don't want to screw up the pattern.ReplyDelete
Sorry, I did not get a gauge for this. I feel for scarves/ shawls gauge is not that critical. But if you did want to make it larger you could add more chains dividable by 6.Delete
Will start on this next week. Saw the date you posted this & have to make it. My birthday! LOLReplyDelete
I'm sorry, but I don't understand when you say to crochet 'AROUND' the chain 4. How do you crochet AROUND' something? Help please. This is a beautiful pattern and I really want to understand so I can make it.ReplyDelete
You are going to insert your hook two rows down under the chain 4 space, that is what creates the bow in the pattern.Delete
This is beautiful! A must try. Thank you/ReplyDelete
will this fit the bigger personReplyDelete
will this fit the bigger person?
If you feel you need to make this bigger, make it wider by adding chains dividable by 6.Delete
I like this pattern. Purple definitely works with it.ReplyDelete
Our church group has a minimum and maximum size for prayer shawls...long enough to cover most of the back and no longer than 60 inches in length. It would be helpful to know the finished dimensions of this shawl. It's beautiful and I would love to make it.ReplyDelete
Unfortunately, I don't have the exact dimensions, but you make the length until it reaches 60 inches, and if you need to adjust the width, either add, or take away a number dividable by 6.Delete
has anyone done a drawing of this chart pattern? those help me understand a pattern much better than the written instructions!ReplyDelete
I love this pattern. I made three shawls for my sister's Karios Outside group. The pattern was easy to follow and quick to make. Thank You for a great patternReplyDelete
In Round 6, the instructions say to "skip dc, dc in the next 2 dc, 3 dc in the ch 3 space, *ch 4 skip 3 dc...." I have a sc after the ch 3 sp with another ch 3 after it. Can you help me? There are no 3 dc to skip--there is a sc and another ch3 sp. What am I doing wrong?ReplyDelete
My best guess is that you make a mistake in round 5 (or forgot to do round 5?) In round 5 you ch 3 and skip the ch 3, sc, and ch 3. Hope this helps.Delete
Julie, I'm having the same problem, row 5 doesn't give me what is needed for row 6. What am I doing wrong? Can you provide a better close up of the picture?Delete
I did find a typo in row 6 that might of been confusing.Delete
Just starting this pattern, Round 3: dc in the next 5 dc---I don't have 5 dc in row 2. What am I missing ? DianaReplyDelete
You should have 6 dc at the end of round 2.If you only have 3 dc, then your foundation row is off by 3.Delete
In row 10 it says single crochet not double crochet.ReplyDelete
Thanks for this pattern. It makes a warm & cuddly shawl. There seem to be missing a ch3, turn at the end of row 7ReplyDelete
Love this pattern! I'm in the process of finishing off by adding a row of sc around the entire shawl. It's for my prayer shawl ministry but I really wish I could keep it. I'm adding it to my permanent pattern file. Thanks so much!ReplyDelete
Here are some suggestions to the pattern for clarification: Round 5: Skip a dc, dc in next 5 dc, *ch 3, skip (ch 3, sc, ch 3), dc in each 3 dc* repeat until the end, ch 3, turn. Row 7 should end as: ...dc in last 3 dc’s, ch 3, turn. Row 9 should end: ...dc in last 3 dc’s, ch 3, turn. Row 10: Skip a dc, dc in the next 2 dc .....ReplyDelete
Beautiful pattern. Sometimes it is like trying to communicate with a pattern writer that goes badly. I find myself liking the outcome but the path is not clear. I love the pattern for the shawl and you did a great job writing directions you and others could follow.ReplyDelete
