Free Crochet Shawl- Blossom Shawl

Posted on January 21, 2021 by Lorene Eppolite

 

The Blossom Shawl is a delicate and light crochet shawl worked using a variety of stitches to add detail, interest and give a stunning result. The shawl is worked in straight rows for main and then a subtle decrease is used towards the end of the shawl to help it drape effortlessly and make it comfy and easy to wear with any outfit.

PART ONE

To begin with, we are going to work a herringbone stitch section to get us going on the shawl. Within this section, there is a two row pattern repeat for you to relax and enjoy, followed by a new set of fun stitch placements to take you up to the end of this section. Just make sure to keep track of your colour changes and carry your yarn within the stitches as much as possible to give you less ends to weave at the end!

Row 1 (ws): Using A, Foundation htr 60 [60]

Row 2: (rs): ch2, *tr in next 2, ch1, skip 1, HBtr in next 3, ch1, skip 1, tr in next 2, ch1, skip 1, HBtr in next 2, ch1, skip 1, tr in next 2, rep from * across to end [60]

PART TWO

Now that you’ve completed part one, the beginning of part two will be a breeze. Starting off with a new two row repeat that you already learned in part one, then going back to the original two row repeat, you will fly through the start of this one. If you find that your different shawl sections are not the same width yet then feel free to give them a little bit of a light block as you go, it works wonders! 

Rows 9 and 10 become Pattern Two. 

Rows 31-40: Repeat Pattern Two 

Row 41: Repeat Row 9 

Rows 42-47: Repeat Pattern One 

PART THREE

Part three sees us repeating aspects of the shawl that are already familiar with us but perhaps not in the order or colours you might expect! So make sure to check before switching yarn colour or stitch pattern. At the end of this part, we’ll be ready to start our decrease section and shape our shawl. 

Row 48: Repeat Row 2, change to C

Row 49: ch1, htr in each st and ch-sp across, change to B [60]

Row 78: Rep Row 76, change to B

Row 79: Rep Row 75, change to A

Row 80: ch1, htr in each st and ch-sp across [60]

 

PART FOUR

We are ready for the final part of the CAL and to finish our shawl. This part includes a six row repeat that decreases each even row by two stitches. The final few rows will decrease to just two stitches, leaving you to fasten off, weave in those ends and block the final shawl. I can’t recommend blocking the shawl enough, it will really pull the stitches out and show them in all their glory.

Row 81: ch2, *HBtr in next, ch1, skip 1, HBtr in next, rep from * across to end

Row 82: htr3tog, ch1, skip 1, HBhtr in ch1-sp, *ch2, skip 2, HBhtr in ch1-sp, rep from * to last st, HBhtr in last st [58]

Row 83: ch2, *HBtr in next, ch1, skip 1, HBtr in next, rep from * across to last st, HBtr in last st [58]

Row 84: htr3tog, *ch2, skip 2, HBhtr in ch1-sp, rep from * to last st, HBhtr in last st [56]

Row 85: ch2, *HBtr in next, ch1, skip 1, HBtr in next, rep from * across to last 2sts, HBtr in last 2 sts [56]

Row 86: htr3tog, HBhtr in ch1-sp, *ch2, skip 2, HBhtr in ch1-sp, rep from * to last st, HBhtr in last st [54]

Rows 81-86 form the decrease pattern - Pattern Three. Every even row decreases by 2 sts.

Rows 87- 135: Repeat Pattern Three [6]

Row 136: Rep Row 81

Row 137: htr3tog, ch1, skip 1, HBhtr in ch1-sp, HBhtr in last st [4]

Row 138: ch2, *HBtr in next, ch1, skip 1, HBtr in next 2 sts [4]

Row 139: htr3tog, HBhtr in last [2]

Fasten off.

Weave in all ends and block lightly to complete.
