One Skein Crochet Shawl Copper Beech – Free Pattern

July 13, 2019
one skein crochet free pattern copper beech

I have a new one skein crochet shawl pattern for you! Perfect for that precious skein of Indie Dyed yarn you have been saving. The easy beginner shawl pattern is a narrow,  asymmetric design that can be draped as a shawl or wound around the neck as a scarf.  Perfect for adding a pop of colour to any outfit. If you enjoy one skein projects, you could also check out Flora Shawl

I used a gorgeous skein of yarn from HeyJay Hand Dyed Yarns

A skein of 85% Superwash Bluefaced Leicester Wool and 15% Donegal Nep (flecks of nylon that resist the dye making for interesting tweedy nubbly bits). I was curious to see how the colour would look worked up in crochet, and swatched many different stitches until I decided to keep it simple, and let the yarn be the star! It reminds me of beautiful beech trees changing their colours in Autumn.

Notes

  • In US crochet terms with UK translations given
  • Shawl starts at one end. Working in rows, increasing by 2 sts each row on one side only, and decreasing by 1 st on the other side, until desired size is reached
  • Gauge is not important
  • Ch 3 at the beginning of an even row counts as 1 dc always
  • On decrease side, ch 2 plus 1 dc in next st, counts as dc2tog always (equals 1 dc)
  • You do not work into the ch 2 on the next row

Special Stitches

Double crochet 2 together (dc2tog): (Yo, insert hook in next st, draw up a loop, yo, draw through 2 loops on hook) 2 times, yo, draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Picot – ch 3, sl st in 3rd ch from hook

Chart

Edging

Join yarn to beg chain at starting point of shawl. Working up decrease side, you will work in each row end

Row 1: Ch 1, 2 sc, picot (ch 3, sl st in 3rd ch from hook), 2 sc in beg ch, * sl st in next row end, [2 sc, picot, 2 sc] in next row end; rep from * around 2 bottom sides of shawl, leaving top side unworked. Fasten off and weave in yarn.

Finishing

Weave in all loose ends. Soak your shawl in lukewarm water and gently wring in a towel. Lay project out to finished size and pull gently into shape. Pin in place and leave to dry. Take your time pinning finished shawl…….it will make a huge difference to the finished piece!

    Hello,
    Please could you suggest how to count how much yarn is needed for the border? I have one beautiful hand-dyed yarn and this shawl seems gorgeous, hope I will start crocheting soon. Thank you for sharing 🙂

      Hi! I don’t have an exact yardage (I must make another and check) but I left about an egg size small of yarn for the border. Hope that helps!

        Hello Carmen,
        thank you for your quick response 🙂 I have already started to make my own shawl. I love the pattern, it is so pleasing to follow 😉 Hope in some days (or probably weeks in my case, because I am a slow crocheter) I will reply with my finished shawl as well. Thank you 🙂

    Thanks for your beautiful copper beech pattern. I was wondering if you have a tutorial for this particular pattern. I found your tutorial on YouTube for another shawl and you were easy to follow. For some reason I crochet better while watching a tutorial. Again thank you, Faye

    Am I missing something? How does the pattern decrease at the end of the shawl?

      Hi! The pattern will have a natural decrease in the shape as it grows. One side gently decreases as the other side increases at an angle, which gives you the shape you can see in the pictures. Blocking at the end, also helps the shape:)
