Halo Shawl – Free Crochet Shawl Pattern

January 17, 2019

Introducing Halo Shawl, a free crochet shawl pattern for you today! It is a versatile fun pattern, written for DK weight yarn. Less than 500m of yarn will make this cosy warm shawl to wrap around your neck. Beginner friendly design, using basic stitches to create an open lace pattern. A quick make, perfect for gifting!

Pattern is written for both US and UK crochet terms – scroll down to find both versions

*I used 2 skeins of a gorgeous yarn from Knitcrate that I received in my monthly subscription box. It is a bouncy, soft yarn with a distinctive halo and sheen (hence the name – Halo Shawl)

You can also use any weight yarn in your stash, just use the hook size that suits your tension. The pattern is very versatile and suitable for a beginner. Only basic stitches are used in this pattern, but some concentration is required until the row increases are established.

Materials

Audine Wools by Knitcrate, 50% Alpaca/30% Merino/20% Nylon, 100g/215m/236yds

2 skeins in Blush

5mm Crochet Hook (or size that fits your tension)

You can use any DK weight yarn to achieve a similar effect

Measurements

Notes

  • Shawl is a triangle creating a wing span with a width of approx. 76”
  • The main body is worked in one piece from bottom-up, increasing on each side until a shallow wide triangle is made.
  • The shawl can be made larger or smaller by working more or fewer pattern repeats. This will alter the amount of yarn required.
  • You can use any weight yarn and matching hook to achieve a similar effect. Go up a hook size if you crochet on the tight side
  • Includes written instructions. Pattern written in US and UK crochet terms
  • Blocking is important as it will help open up the stitches of the pattern
  • Gauge is not important

Weave in all loose ends. Lay project out to finished size and pull gently into shape. Pin in place and spray lightly with water and leave to dry. You can wet block shawl if desired – check your yarn fiber instructions. Add tassels if you wish.

Tassel Instructions

Make 3 tassels as follows:

Using a book approx. 4-6” in width, cut a 12” length of yarn and lay across top of book – this will be used to tie top of tassel. Wrap yarn around book about 16 – 20 times (depending on thickness required). Using the 12” tie, knot top of tassel tightly. Cut tassel at opposite end. Wrap another length of yarn around tassel 1” from top approx. 5 times and knot ends together. Trim if needed and sew securely to 3 corners of shawl.

    I am confused on the US terms. Row 1: are all those stitches in the 5th chain, and all 4 remaining stitches?

      Hi Ann. All the stitches go into the 5th ch, leaving the remaining 4ch unworked. Try it and see – you should have 1tr, 1dc, 2ch, 1dc, 1tr in first row. (1 of the trebles = 4ch) Feel free to email me ([email protected])if I can help further!

      Hi Deb. At the end of each row in a pattern you see the total amount of stitches used in that row. It helps to keep you on track for the first few rows. For example, at the end of row one you see 2tr, 2dc. That means you should have 2 trebles and 2 double crochets in that row. Hope that helps!

    Hi Carmen,
    I have tried starting this shawl a couple of times now, but it is just not working out. I don’t understand the written instructions.
    Would it be possible to have a chart?
    Thank you.
    Sheena.
