Romantic Lacy Shawl Crochet Pattern – Seamróg

March 15, 2019
crochet shawl free pattern

A Free pattern for a romantic lacy crochet shawl that is so easy to make! A very wearable triangle shawl made in beautiful gradient yarn from Hobbii Yarns. They kindly gifted me a ball of Dolce Cashmere in Rainbow, and I loved using it to crochet this triangle shawl. The yarn is so soft and feels like butter as you work it…….the fibre content is wool and cashmere!

The weather recently has been very windy, so taking pictures was getting frustrating, so I decided to embrace the wind. Hence – the images of Seamróg Shawl billowing in the Irish countryside. I actually like them and I hope you do as well. You can find all details on how to make this romantic lacy crochet shawl pattern below.

I am releasing this pattern for St. Patrick’s day, our national holiday in Ireland which is of course, always associated with the Shamrock!  The Irish word for shamrock is Seamróg

 seamróg [SHAM-rohgg], a shamrock

800 – 1000m of your favourite gradient yarn is all that is needed to make this light and lacy triangle shawl. A wide wingspan to curl around your neck and shoulders. An easy/intermediate make using sc, dc, puff stitches and chains, that will keep your interest as you crochet.

You can find the free pattern below, and **You can purchase an INEXPENSIVE PDF of the Seamróg Shawl pattern on Ravelry

This formatted PDF includes the step-by-step pictures and is a total of 6 pages including the cover page.

Materials

  • 4mm hook
  • 1 skein Hobbii Dolce Cashmere: 65% superwash virgin wool, 25% polyamide, 10% cashmere/770m (842 yds)/ 200g
  • Marker for centre stitch
  • You can use any fingering/4 ply weight yarn of your choice to make this shawl. You will need approx. 800m – 1000m of yarn to make a shawl as large as I made mine. But you can stop at the size you require.
  • You could also use a heavier weight yarn and matching hook, and stop when your shawl is large enough.

Skill Level

This is an easy/intermediate level pattern. You must be familiar with basic crochet stitches and techniques. Directions written so that they are easy to read and follow. I have included some tips, and photos of the first 6 rows to guide you. Please read Special Stitches and Notes before you start. Once you have the repeat pattern established, enjoy making this fast, relaxing pattern!

Notes

  • Pattern is a triangle shawl worked top-down
  • 4-row repeat pattern
  • At the end of rows 1 – 6, you will see a stitch count in italics for that row. I included how many ch-3 and ch-4 spaces were in the row also. This will help you keep track until you are familiar with the pattern
  • I suggest you place a marker in the centre sc and centre ch-3 until you are familiar with the pattern
  • Ch 7 at the beginning of a row counts as 1 dc and ch 4
  • Ch 3 at the beginning of a row counts as 1 dc
  • Read instructions for Puff Stitch carefully. There is an extra yarn over (YO) at the end of the stitch
  • Gauge is not important

    This is a beautiful shawl – such a pretty combination of stitches and colors. I love how you ’embraced the wind’ and photographed the shawl in motion – great idea and effect!. . And to have Ireland in the background – added bonus!
