Easy Crochet Shawl Pattern PDF (Perfect Pockets Shawl)
I love the idea of having some pockets in your shawl. It makes for a very comfy and casual look. Thank you for checking out my Perfect Pockets Shawl.
This crochet shawl pattern is rated as EASY -- suitable for a confident beginner. It uses standard US English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains step-by-step how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience (and a very nice and functional shawl).
This shawl is worked in back-and-forth-rows utilizing hdc stitches and wrapped double crochet stitches. Detailed instructions with photos are given for the wrapped double crochet stitches (just in case you are not familiar with them -- they are not difficult), and for adding the fringe. The pockets are attached via whip stitch.
I provide a gauge for this shawl and guidelines for increasing the size, if you are tall. The model in the photo is 5' 8".

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.
It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.
As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).
It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).
When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!
Home is now Toronto in Canada.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
