Omna Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern

February 6, 2019

Cosy, squishy and huge, this free pattern for a crochet shawl makes a lovely crochet blanket scarf to add style to your winter outfits. Wear it as a wrap around your shoulders, or as a cosy scarf to drape around your neck to keep those cold winds at bay.

Omna Shawl – Omna is the Irish word for Oak tree. On the day we took these pictures, I remember looking around at the beautiful trees and seeing oak leaves on the ground.

The pattern is an easy design. The first few rows require concentration, but I have included step by step photos to help the process. I used 2 balls of King Cole Curiosity yarn to make my shawl, but any DK weight yarn would work as well. Gradient cake yarns makes a gorgeous wrap, and only a few threads to weave in! I included the multiples for the pattern, so you can make your shawl any width you choose.

You can find the free pattern below, and **You can purchase an INEXPENSIVE PDF with 6 pages, of the Omna Shawl pattern on Ravelry

    I am finishing up my shawl and I love this pattern so much. I really want to make one as a throw blanket for my couch. I know that it says the pattern repeat is 16+4. But I want to be sure that my foundation chain is correct. Do you have any idea of how many chains I should start with to make a throw? Thank you!!

      Hi Kayte! Thank you! The pattern would make a lovely throw. The amount of stitches would depend on a few factors – the weight of yarn you are using, and the width you want. My suggestion is – to make a small swatch first and use that to find your final measurement. It will be worth it:) Using the yarn and hook for your throw, chain 36 (2 pattern repeats + 4) and crochet approx 10 rows. Lay your swatch out carefully (make sure it is flat and not twisted), measure the width (you will have 2 repeats) and use that to give you an approx. measurement. Eg. if your measurement is 10in, you will know that 1 pattern repeat will be 5in. If you want a throw 50in wide, you will need to make a starting chain of 16 chain [+ 4] x 10 = 160 chain. Hope that makes sense!
