Semi-Circle Crochet Shawl Pattern – Apricot Rose

April 3, 2020

One cake of your favourite gradient yarn is all that is needed to make this Pattern for a Semi-circle Crochet Shawl. It perfectly drapes around your neck and shoulders and is an easy relaxing pattern using basic stitches. The half-circle shape of this crochet shawl is very versatile, and the open lace stitches make the design light and easy to wear.

This light and the lacy shawl is worked from the top down, and you can easily adapt the pattern to any size. You can wear this design all year round. It is perfect for adding a bright pop of colour with your Spring outfits, and for draping around your shoulders on a Summer evening. You can also style this shape of shawl beautifully with a shawl pin worn to the side.

The pattern looks so lovely in a gradient cake yarn but 2 skeins of any fingering weight yarn from your stash would also look beautiful – you can get creative with the way you use the colours! The pattern will work with any weight yarn and matching crochet hook. Once you have the pattern repeat established, you can stop when your shawl is big enough, or you run out of yarn.

I have included a picture tutorial to help you with the first 8 rows, and a handy chart with stitch counts for the amount of double crochet stitches in each wedge of the shawl.

Instructions to make this Semi Circle Crochet Shawl are free on this page, or you can purchase an inexpensive PDF copy of the pattern. Your support is always appreciated and it helps me provide more free patterns! This pattern is in US Crochet terms.

Notes (read carefully)

  •  Pattern is given in US crochet terms, and you can find UK terms in Abbreviations
  • Shawl is worked back and forth in rows, beginning at centre back neck.
  • Beginning ch 2 does not count as a stitch
  • The shawl is made up of 7 wedges each separated by a ch-1 space (even rows) or a PS (odd rows)
  • Place a stitch marker in the ch-1 that divides each wedge in even rows in the beginning (so you won’t miss it!)
  • Gauge is not important. To achieve a light drape tension, I suggest make a swatch of the first 5 rows and see what hook size works best for you.
  • I have included some tips in the first 8 rows to help stitch placement. Once you have the 2-row pattern repeat established, the shawl will work up quickly!
  • You can make the shawl smaller or larger by omitting or adding more rows
  • Make sure when you are skipping the Puff Stitch, you also skip the ch-1 to close.

Special Stitches

  • Puff Stitch (PS): YO and insert hook in indicated stitch and pull up a loop to the height of a hdc, (yo and insert hook in same st and pull up a loop) 4 times in total, yo and pull through all 11 loops, ch 1 to close.

    Such a beautiful shawl. I love the colours of thy yarn, very fresh and spring. I still have a few gradient cakes so maybe I’ll cast on this pattern. Thank you for sharing it :-).
    Have a lovely Sunday.
