Shell and Lace Shawl

ShellAndLaceShawl

Crocheting with homespun or bouclé or other knobby style yarn can be frustrating. This shawl does not require finding chain stitches. It is made starting from the neck working out, so can be made as small or large as you like. The lacy pattern keeps the shawl light even with a heavier yarn.

This pattern was designed to be easy for homespun or bouclé style yarns, but it can be made with just about any yarn. Make it in a solid color or with as many color changes as you like.

The example is made in Jo-Ann Sensations Breeze yarn.

Size: This shawl can be made any size. Five sizes are provided with yarn requirements.

Repeat rows 11-16 until shawl is desired size. Finish off and weave in end.

The shawl can be made in a solid color or can be made with any number of color changes. The best way to make a color change is to finish all but the very last pull through of the two loops of the last stitch of a row. Cut yarn with a few inches of tail and join with new color next to stitch. Pull new color through last two loops. Weave in ends.

  1. This is beautiful.

    • this is beautifull would love to see it made up on a utube video.

      • Hi,I made 2 of those,they are beautiful and easy to do.I used bernat baby yarn and did it with 9 ounces.good luck

        • I don’t understand instructions. When it says dc in first st, do they mean the first st you made in chain or the first st nearest to hook? You can tell I’m very new to this though I’ve been knitting for 40 years.
          Thanks for helping a total stranger,
          Toni

          • That is usually meaning the last stitch of the previous row before you make some chains and turned the work. After you turn your work, the last stitch of the previous row becomes the first stitch you can work into for your current row.

  2. Lovely! Lovely! Lovely! Will make a beautiful Christmas gift. (I also posted about it on my Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/373467429400692/ — hope that was okay. ;-)

  3. Thanks for another great pattern. I can’t wait to get started.

  4. I have been looking for crochet patterns for this yarn as I love their colors,content and price. I have several skeins and have tried several patterns but most were hard to work with due to the boucle yarn. Thank you so much for this beautiful pattern. Have already started it and it looks great:)

  5. Beautiful! Thank you for the pattern.

    Sharon

  6. thank you for the pattern will be excited to make it.

  7. Can not wait to start this beautiful shawl. Thank you for sharing this pattern.

  8. So very beautiful. Thank’s for sharing.

  9. Can this pattern be made with a lightweight/sock/fingering yarn?

  10. I got 40 balls of Ironstone yarn in a closeout with all it’s knobby bumps. Finally I found a pattern to use up this yarn. Thank you Mama. Can’t wait to start!

  11. Lovely.. I needed a new shawl pattern to make a shawl as a gift. Thank you for sharing.

  12. am looking forward to trying this pattern. It looks lovely.

  13. I will try this pattern. I will let you know how successful I was. Thanks

  14. Thank you very much for lovely shawl pattern. I shall definitely make it

  15. This shawl is beautiful! Thank you for sharing it. Can’t wait to make it.

  16. Hi,
    Can’t wait to try this lovely lacy shawl… I’ve been crocheting for years now, but never made a shawl.. when I complete it, I will then really be a HAPPY HOOKER!!!
    Thanks so, so much.
    sincerely,
    shirley

  17. Thank you! So glad I’m not the only one that doesn’t enjoy working with Homespun or boucle’ yarn. I love shawls & this is a lovely one! Love the color, too!

  18. Where can you get that color yarn. I looked at Jo Ann Sensations Breeze but couldn’t find it. :(

    • Unfortunately, it has been discontinued. I looked on Ravelry and everyone that has any is holding on to it and not offering it for sale or trade. I also did not find any from alternate venders on Amazon. We can hope Jo-Anns will bring it back since it is so popular.

  19. How can I adapt this for a child? I hsve 5 abd 7 year old granddaughters and I know they would absolutely love this shawl!

    • What is great is that you don’t have to adapt it to make it any size you like. It grows from the center top out as you make it, so once it is the right size you just stop.

  20. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely patterns!

  21. Just a wonderful pattern. It is like it has been created just for my daughter’s Christmas present. Thanks so much for sharing.

  22. Had to make 5 wraps for my coworkers. this was #4. loved it so much i used the same pattern for #5. Made it with black yarn and a taupe. looked great. also, very easy to pick up the pattern. thanks.

  23. Would love to make this pattern as a baby blanket, but have no idea how many chains for the foundation row. Have you adapted this pattern to make an afghan/blanket? Love your patterns!

  24. What do you mean “shell in ring”? Thanks! Do you or could you show this in video? I will try to find it on YouTube as well.

    • Shell in ring, meaning work a shell stitch (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in the ring formed by joining the first few chains in a ring.

      I haven’t made a video of this one yet, but I could may in the future.

  25. I may sound like a dummy but Im confused on row 6 where it says do shell on the next space one spaces I don’t see non unless I followed row 5 wrong but I did it a few times over……HELP needed in San Diego Ca
    Thank you

    • The last instruction on row 5 is – (shell, ch 1, dc) in ch-4 sp.
      The shell has a chain-1 space and then there is a chain-1 space right after it and then a dc.
      The first instructions of row 6 are – Ch 4, turn. 2 dc in ch-1 sp, shell in next ch-1 sp.
      So coming back from the end of row 5 to make row 6, the 2 dc are made in the ch-1 space between the dc and the shell of row 5. Then a shell is made in the ch-1 space of the shell in row 5.

  26. This is nice. Are you not going to make a sampler video for this? Thank you.

    • At your request I will add it to my to-do list and let you know when it is done. I have had to put my video making on hold due to having a splint on my right middle finger.

      • The one just shown on Starting Chair facebook. Would you please send a link, instructions or something for the edging. I looks like it is kind of ruffled and it is part of what makes the one just shown so delicate and pretty. Looks like you used a larger needle than what the pattern calls for also. Thanks

        • I didn’t make the one pictured on Starting Chain, so I just have to guess. I think it just looks different because she used a different yarn than what I used for the pattern.

  27. Christine Tomasic

    Great pattern….I’d like to use some sock yarn to make this….what size crochet hook do you think I should use and should I double it? If I do what size hook should I use with that? Thanks for sharing such a gem of a pattern!!!

    Peace & Blessings

    Christine

    • As far as single or doubling the yarn, that is up to how you want it to look and how heavy you want it to be. For single, the hook recommended by the yarn is probably best.

  28. Is the shawl pattern shown in RedHeart Soft in “Icy Pond” & “Waterscape” color scheme?” If so, how many rows on the edging were crocheted in the contrasting color?

    Thanks,
    Judy Thomas

  29. Margie Esselstein

    Heather, I found this shawl named, “Shelly and Lace” in a blue multi and brown multi trim on Facebook. It gave your name and could be found on Ravelry. It said it was done in Red Heart Soft–Icy Pond and Waterscape. My daughter-in-law loved it, but you say it wasn’t yours. Help!

  30. A beautiful, feminine shawl with superior workmanship. Think I will do this in a solid, light weight cotton. Thanks so much for sharing SMILE

  31. Thank you for this pattern. I happen to have purchased some Breeze on clearance at Joanne’s last year so I’m very happy to have found your pattern. Do you have any advice on blocking this yarn? (I have used some for another project also)
    Thanks again.

    • I didn’t block when I used it because I liked how it looked. Because of it’s sort of “crisp” texture, I don’t know if blocking would change it much.

  32. I’m using cotton yarn to make it extra soft for my mother. But I’m worried about washing the shawl in the washer. In joining the yarns, I did a double crochet and drew in the new ball of yarn through the top loop. I weaved the loose ends into the pattern and feel that they may not hold up. Any suggestions?

    Thanks….its a perfect patteren for my mom.

    • I would recommend hand washing with cotton yarn. I only machine wash the toughest acrylics and then use a knot for yarn joins. Maybe some others will also share opinions on this subject.

  33. This is beautiful and I started on today. Beautiful pattern

  34. Hello Miss. Mama: I started making this and when you hold it up it does not look like a triangle. Or will it keep going more like a bell shape. I have made so many triangle ones where the shawl is straight on top. Please help since I love this pattern to make for myself.

  35. Hello I started the shawl in yellow. I tried to send a picture but, it came back. After starting it quietly this morning, I am glad to say it is coming out right. Thank you so much for helping me Miss. Mama. You have pretty patterns.

    Betty
    Old Lady from Lytle

  36. I would recommend for everyone to make this pattern. It is so beautiful, the design is just great!

  37. do you by any chance have a pattern for a navajo afaghan

  38. Yes please ! A video would be great !

    • I will add it to my list. I don’t have a good setup for videos right now, so haven’t been making videos lately, but if I do get a setup I’m satisfied with, I’ll put this one on my to-do list.

  39. Thank you for sharing your wonderful pattern!

  40. Can you send me a video tutorial on to finish off the corner to corner shawl

  41. Can we do edging to this shawl. Please give the pattern for the same

  42. Hi I’m stuck. Please advise where there are double asterisks. Thank you

    • First there will be a series of instructions between ** like this: “**shell in ch-1 sp of shell, dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3, sc in ch-5 sp, ch 3, dc in ch-3 sp**”
      Then you will see an instruction “repeat between ** to the center” which means to repeat the instructions between the first two sets of asterisks until you reach the center you have marked.
      Then you will see an instruction”repeat between ** to the end” which means to repeat the instructions between the first two sets of asterisks until you reach the end of the row.

  43. Thank you so much :) for that. I figured it out and made it to row 14 correctly :-). I appreciate your assistance. And adore the results of this pattern. Thank you again :).

  44. Is this pattern suitable for mohair yarn?
    Thanks!

  45. Thank you for allowing people to use your patterns. I knit items for the church and was looking for a baby blanket to knit. I found one on your website. I thank you very much
    Sincerely
    Amelia

  46. Thank you so much for this pattern! I’m starting my second shawl now that I’ve gotten the hang of it lol. It’s just beautiful, I love it! And thanks for your tips on how to do a blanket or whatever without using a starting chain, I just love that! So creative! Lol. I usecar on brand yarns app the time and also Bernard baby which is super bulky, would love to find some nice and pretty yet keeps you interested but doesn’t take weeks or months to complete projects for those yarns . Thanks for all you do :)

  47. I made one with #10 thread h hook with two strands held together. Scraps I had of variegated and solids. Aunt Lydia’s Crochet thread posted my pic on their facebook page at this link
    https://www.facebook.com/AuntLydiasCrochetThread/
    This shawl is beautiful made with any yarn or thread. Thank you for the wonderful pattern!!!

  48. Margaret Schools

    Just recently discovered this beautiful shawl and wanted to make it for my Prayer Shawl ministry at church. Question ??
    on row 6, second line (shell in each of the three ch-1-sps). I am assuming the first ch-1 is the center shell, are the other 2 ch-1 sps following that? Can’t seem to get this right. Help please and thanks so much.

    • On row 5 you have this: (shell, ch 1, shell) in ch-1 sp of shell. There is a ch-1 in the center of these two shells separated by a ch-1 space. These are the three ch-1 spaces that shells are made in on row 6.

  49. Margaret Schools

    Thanks so much for the help. After pulling it out three times, I think I may finally have it right.

  50. How can I make this without the taper just a straight line ? I really want to try this ?

    • I can write it up that way. Do you want it to be written for use with textured yarn (so using my no beginning chain technique) or with a regular starting chain?

      • This is a version for a regular beginning chain.

        Chain multiples of 12 plus 5.

        Row 1: 2 dc in 5th chain from hook, ch 3, skip next 3 ch, sc in next ch, ch 5, skip next 3 ch, sc in next ch, ch 3, skip next 3 ch, ** shell in next ch, ch 3, skip next 3 ch, sc in next ch, ch 5, skip next 3 ch, sc in next ch, ch 3, skip next 3 ch. Repeat from ** across, ending with (2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in last ch.

        Row 2: Ch 4, turn, 2 dc in ch-1 sp, dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3, sc in ch-5 sp, ch 3, dc in ch-3 sp, **shell in ch-1 sp of shell, dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3, sc in ch-5 sp, ch 3, dc in ch-3 sp** repeat between ** to the end, (2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in ch-4 sp.

        Row 3: Ch 4, turn, 2 dc in ch-1 sp, ch 3, sc in ch-3 sp, ch 5, sc in next ch-3 sp, ch 3, , **shell in ch-1 sp of shell, ch 3, sc in ch-3 sp, ch 5, sc in next ch-3 sp, ch 3** repeat between ** to the end, (2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in ch-4 sp.

        Repeat rows 2 and 3.

        This is a version in my no beginning chain style which is good for textured yarns that are hard to find stitches. Here is another pattern of mine which has this type of beginning: http://stitcheryprojects.com/2012/12/23/no-beginning-chain-asymmetric-shell/

        Here is how to do this pattern as a no beginning chain.

        Instead of a beginning chain, the blanket is begun with a first row of chain and tr spaces.

        Row 1: Ch 3, tr in first ch, (ch 3, tr in last ch sp) until you have made desired number of tr/ch spaces. Make a number of tr/ch spaces that is a multiple of 3 plus 1.

        Do not turn.

        Row 2: Ch 4. Without turning the work, 2 dc in first ch sp, ch 3, sc in next ch sp, ch 5, sc in next ch sp, ch 3, ** shell in next ch sp, ch 3, sc in next ch sp, ch 5, sc in next ch sp, ch 3. Repeat from ** across to the last chain space. (2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in last ch sp.

        Row 3: Ch 4, turn, 2 dc in ch-1 sp, dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3, sc in ch-5 sp, ch 3, dc in ch-3 sp, **shell in ch-1 sp of shell, dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3, sc in ch-5 sp, ch 3, dc in ch-3 sp** repeat between ** to the end, (2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in ch-4 sp.

        Row 4: Ch 4, turn, 2 dc in ch-1 sp, ch 3, sc in ch-3 sp, ch 5, sc in next ch-3 sp, ch 3, , **shell in ch-1 sp of shell, ch 3, sc in ch-3 sp, ch 5, sc in next ch-3 sp, ch 3** repeat between ** to the end, (2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in ch-4 sp.

        Repeat rows 3 and 4.

  51. Is there a chart for this pattern?

  52. I tried to get the chart for this pattern, but get “this website cannot be found”, Can you let me know where I can access the chart?

    Thanks.

  53. My WIP as I’m writing this comment. I hope it’s ok to share your link to others because they love the pattern. Thank you for this pattern and I take the risk to start making a shawl as my friend dares me to make obe outside my comfort zone : Amigurumi. Gonna make more of this. Thank you again, Ma’am.

    • I’d love for you to share the link. I hope you enjoy the pattern.

      • I do! Thinking of making again with different colors. Do you block this one? Been reading lots of comments from other page about blocking and I am new with this. Thank you again.

  54. I don’t understand the second half of row 13? Shouldn’t the second half be the same as the first half? Maybe I’m reading it wrong! Will try again!
    Thanks from South Africa.

    • Beginning of the row:
      Row 13: Ch 4, turn. 2 dc in ch-1 sp, ch 1, dc in sp between dc and shell, shell in ch-1 sp of shell,

      Portion to repeat to the center. This is also repeated from the center to the end.
      **dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3, sc in ch-5 sp, ch 3, dc in ch-3 sp, shell in ch-1 sp of shell**

      Center
      dc in sp between shells, ch 1, shell in ch-1 sp of next shell, ch 1, dc in sp between shells, shell in ch-1 sp of next shell

      End of the row.
      dc in sp between shell and dc, ch 1, (2 dc, ch 1, dc) in ch-4 sp.

      • Im having the same problems in Row 13. Do I crochet a shell in the actual center? I don’t understand dc in sp between shells – after the center shell, there’s a ch-3 space,then a ch-5 space, then a ch-3 space before the next shell. The instructions for the second half of row 13 do not match the first half of row 13. I’ve tried this over and over and I’m stuck.

        • In row 12 there three consecutive shells in the center of the row. You will repeat the ** of row 13 to the first of these three shells at the center. The last shell of the repeat is made in the first of these three shells. The “sp between shells” is referring to the space between the first and second of these three shells. Dc in that space, then ch 1, shell in the second shell, ch 1, and dc in the space between the second and third shell, then shell in the third shell.

  55. I’m having the same problems in Row 13. If I repeat the ** on the other side of center, then I don’t understand what the Center instructions mean?? Tried several times, but I”m stuck. All other rows so far made sense.
