Granny Style Shawl Or Cowl Crochet Pattern

I am a huge fan of ‘granny’ style crochet, probably because that’s what my Mum introduced me to crochet with. This simple crochet pattern is great for beginners and easily adaptable for weight and size.

I used several leftover chunky yarn oddments, approx 400g, to make this shawl that can also be worn as a cosy cowl. It was also a great excuse to trial the KnitPro Symfonie 12mm Wooden Crochet Hook available here

To start

Made four chain stitches, then use a slip stitch to make a circle.

Row One

Chain three and then work three treble into the circle. Chain two and then work a further four trebles into the circle.

Row Two

Turn and chain three then work three treble into the space between the last two trebles from the previous row. Work three trebles into the space, from the previous row, that will form the ‘corner’ of your shawl. Chain two and then work a further three chains into the same space. Work four trebles into the last space between the trebles of the previous row. Mirroring your work on the other side of the triangle.

Row Three

Turn and chain three then work TWO treble into the space between the last two trebles from the previous row. Work three trebles into the next space. Work three trebles into the space that will form the ‘corner’ of your shawl. Chain two and then work a further three chains into the same space. Work three trebles into the next space. Work THREE trebles into the last space between the trebles of the previous row. Mirroring your work on the other side of the triangle.

Repeat method used in row three, working three treble into each space created in the previous row, until the shawl in the required size.

Edging

I used a simple shell edging to finish. Work five double trebles into the first space. One double crochet into the next space, repeat.

 Note this is a UK pattern
