Last Updated on May 27, 2023

Do know how it is when you have that perfect yarn lying in your stash, and you just wait for the right pattern to come along?

I came up with the Flowers for Simone crochet lace shawl pattern, after I got a beautiful yarn cake from my friend (Simone), and it took me several months to come up with the perfect design for this yarn.

Scroll down for the written pattern and video tutorial.

How Do You Crochet a Lace Shawl?

Crocheting a shawl can be made in several ways. The easiest way is to make a long rectangle, using a lacy crochet stitch. Just start with a long chain to create the width of the shawl, and keep crocheting until reaching the desired length.

You can also crochet a triangle shawl worked from the middle out, or work an asymmetrical shawl that is made by crocheting from one side to the other.

When using lace stitches, you will always get an impressive shawl. And there are a lot of beautiful shawl crochet patterns on the web to choose from.

I used the side to side method to design the Sashay Asymmetrical Shawl.

How To Crochet a Lace Triangle Shawl?

When I started working on this crochet lace shawl pattern, I wanted to create an asymmetrical lace triangle shawl pattern. I like the look of the shawl being narrow on one side, and wider on the other.

To create an asymmetric triangle shawl, the crochet shawl starts at one end and is worked in rows from side to side.

While increasing each row on one side of the shawl, you are decreasing 4 stitches every 6 rows on the other side creating “steps”- like rows and a subtle increase for the triangle.

About the Flowers for Simone Shawl – a Romantic Lacy shawl crochet pattern

As I mentioned before, I made this lacy crochet shawl from one beautiful yarn cake I got from a dear friend named Simone. So all you need for this shawl is one Fingering (#1) weight yarn cake for this one skein lace shawl crochet pattern.

I wanted this design to be special and decided to use the beautiful Flower Lace Stitch to create a romantic shawl crochet pattern.

Combining the Lacy flower crochet stitch with the beautiful gradient yarn, creating a stunning lightweight crochet shawl, that is also perfect for summer!

What Weight Yarn Should I Use For a Shawl?

This question depends on the pattern you are using.

While making a lightweight crochet shawl, you would want to use either Lace (#0), Fingering (#1) or Sport (#2) weight yarns, to keep the beautiful lacy texture.

If you want to make a warm crochet shawl, then use a thicker yarn. This way your shawl would also work up faster.

Notes

  • The shawl starts at one end and is worked from side to side. It is worked in rows, increasing each row on one side of the shawl and decreasing 4 sts every 6 rows on the other side creating “steps”.
  • The last two rows of a step are the same as the first two rows of the next step.
  • The shawl is worked with a 3.5mm hook, but the edging is worked with a 3.0mm.
  • You can make the shawl as big as you’d like by repeating the main pattern.
  • The markers at the beginning of the rows help indicate the top of the beginning chain. This is optional of course.
  • There’s a stitch count table at the end of the written instructions. Each [1puff, ch2, 1puff, ch2, 1puff] is referred to as a flower, and each [1puff, ch2, 1dc] is referred to as half a flower. The easiest way to make sure your stitch count is correct, is to count your flowers.
  • You can find a photo tutorial for the Lace Flower Crochet Stitch.
  • If you prefer a chart, you can find it in the premium PDF version on Ravelry and Etsy.

  1. What was the name of the yarn cake you used?

    1. Hi Marti!
      I used a yarn cake I got as a gift, the yarn is called Lola Farbverlaufsgarn 4-fach.
      This is the manufacturer’s website, I don’t know the specific colorway I used, but this one looks the closest to what I had:

      I hope it helps 🙂
