Learn to crochet this quick and easy crochet summer shawl. This pattern is accompanied with a step by step video tutorial so please scroll down to view.
This easy to follow crochet summer shawl is beginner friendly and constructed in a rectangle shaping which means there is no increasing whatsoever.
I can’t express to you enough how much I loved making this shawl. The pattern is a 6 row repeat but believe me when I say it is pretty easy to follow. After a few rows you really won’t need to follow the written pattern at all as it’s pretty easy and repetitive to follow and pretty much eyeball.
The pattern uses a cotton yarn because I wanted something that was perfect for spring and summer but you can definitely change things up by using a different fibre such as wool or acrylic for the cooler months. Oh my goodness can you imagine this shawl wrapped around your shoulders in the colder months later in the year and using a beautiful warm autumnal color!

So the yarn I used for this shawl was Rico Design Creative Cotton Dk in the shade 002. It is a weight 3 or Dk cotton yarn that is both soft yet hard wearing. It comes in array of colors so I’m sure there is something for everyone.
The crochet summer shawl measures approximately 80 ” by 16″. For more length simply add more foundation chains but keep in mind your stitch multiple should be 11+5. For a bigger width you will do more repeats of the stitch pattern but you must end on row 7.
This crochet shawl is rectangular in shape. You will be making a very long chain and then crocheting a certain number of stitch pattern repeats to get to your preferred width.
GAUGE: not very important for this pattern.

This a great basic which could be done in so many fibers, patterns could also prove to be very interesting indeed. Just lovely…. shawl book ice tea it is Summer after all…
I love this pattern. I had to watch the video for row 6. You forgot to put the ch3 before the 4 trebles. 😊. Just thought I would let you know, just in case someone else has a problem with it.
Thank you so much for the summer shawl.
I really love it can’t wait to start. I’m on something now but that is next.
Have A Blessed Day 🙏🏻
Row 6 is not worded like the video demo shows. Wording says to skip the 3 chains after group of 3 double crochet but video show 3 chains before 4 triple crochet. Confused.
I found an error in the pattern and am surprised no one has commented on it. Row 6 is missing a chain 3 before the trebles. I assume it is missing because looking at your finished piece, I can see it’s there. Hope this helps some people. Maybe update the pattern to show this. Could be confusing for a beginner. Fortunately I’m a very advanced crocheter and was able to figure it out. Many will not see it though.
Would it work if I started with a dc foundation chain instead of the just chain? Thanks, Jak
I’m a beginner but I think you need the chain as foundation for double crochet.
Oh how I love how this looks. I decided to make mine little longer so followed your instructions and ended up row 2 with triple crochet instead of doubles. Don’t know how to proceed. I’m kind of a beginner. If anyone knows, pls advise.
Did you stop at row two? Or have you completed the entire thing?
I believe I read you need to end on last row, row 7 I believe. I have started this yet but read quickly through the instructions.
This was such an easy pattern and I was able to crochet it up in no time. I have to say the design is very forgiving to beginners like myself. I made lots of mistakes, but they are not noticeable at all. I made a rookie error and used three different colours of yarn, and I don’t love my choice. However, I am determined to make another in a solid colour. Thanks for the brilliant tutorial.
Yes, this is such a lovely pattern to crochet!! Thank you so much, Carrie, for your design genius! As others stated, there is the omission of the first ch3 before the treble crochet on row 6, but patterns (and humans) have errors at times. The ch 3 is so well established from the previous rows by that point that reading our crochet will show us it belongs there. I used Lions Brand 24/7 worsted in the color Orchid, which I’m throughly enjoying. The yarn does feel more like a sport weight, though, so I really didn’t need to shorten it in my attempt to compensate for the difference I imagined. My shawl is measuring 68/70″ as a result. I love the geometry of the pattern, the ease of memorization, and just the way lace works up so efficiently and prevents boredom. The resulting fabric has me thinking of Celtic designs I’ve seen. Was that intentional?
