Free Crochet Pattern...Philomena Shawlette!


The Philomena Shawlette is perfect for this time of year when you need a little something to wrap around you.  An elegant wrap with a lacy drape, this shawlette is perfect for dress or casual days alike.  Optional tassels finish it beautifully.




Philomena Shawlette
By Jennifer Dickerson

Materials:
  • J (6.0 mm) Crochet Hook
  • 1 skein Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable ("Echo" colorway shown)
  • Tapestry Needle (for weaving in ends) 



Sizing (as shown):
  • 40 inches across top edge
  • 26 inches across bottom edge
  • 9 inches tall
  • Each tassel is 3 inches tall


Note: this shawlette can be customized, the measurements provided are to give you an idea of the shawlette shown.  If you want yours to be longer, just keep going!  Some people like a smaller shawl without all the bulk, while others like a longer shawl with lots of drape...just work it until you get the size you like!  See diagram below to get an idea of sizing too:


Instructions:

Row 1: ch 94.  In 4th chain from hook (dc, ch 1, dc) all in the same chain.  *Skip two chains, and in the next chain, work (dc, ch 1, dc) all in the same chain.  Repeat from * to end.

Row 2: Turn, ch 3 and work (dc, ch 1, dc) in each of the chain 1 spaces from the previous row (center of each "V").  At the end of the row, finish with a (dc, ch 1, dc) in the last space (ch 3 turning space).

Repeat row 2 until shawlette measures 9 inches in height, or until desired size.



Finishing and Assembly:
Fasten off and weave in all ends.  If you like, you can add a tassel with the same yarn at either end along the top (wider) edge.  See diagram above.  If you've never made a tassel, please visit this photo/video tutorial to learn how:

  2. Very pretty, would make a nice Prayer Shawl. Like the flat bottom as the pointed bottom on a shawl gets in the way for wheel chair patients. Will give it a try. Thank your for sharing and look forward to the video.

  3. Lovely!! One question though. Does one decrease a stitch at the beginning and ending of each row after Row 1 to create the slanted sides? Thanks !

    1. Thank for your question...it is worked from the bottom up, so it increases with each row...hope that helps!

  6. I just wanted to say that I made 2 of these at the weekend and they turned out beautifully and were so quick and easy to do. For one I actually used a knobbly yarn which had proved difficult to work with and it was just the perfect pattern for using up this yarn. Thank you for all the wonderful patterns which you so generously share at no charge, I for one appreciate it very much!

  7. I very much like this shawlette and want to make one my own. I am struggling with the size. The size of 40 inches across top edge
    and 26 inches across bottom edge given is it for the shawlette which goes around the neck and has the tassels showing on each side (as on the picture below the instructions) or is this size for the shawlette going around the neck only? Many thanks for a response in advance.

    1. I hope I am answering you question correctly...the shawl is worn with the narrower part at the bottom and the wider part around the neck. The tassels are attached to the widest points. If you'd like your shawl to be longer/wider, just work more rows, I hope that helps!

    2. Thanks much for your explanation, it helped much. I just need to do some more rows and then I should be fine. I love the shawlette, thanks.
