Lavender Blooms Shawl Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Lavender Blooms Shawl
Free Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This triangular shawl gets its name from the bloom shaped cluster of stitches used in the pattern, and from the color of the yarn I used. The shawl is made with two colors, which change at the end of every row, but there is no cutting the yarn. A technique common in Japanese crochet is used to make the color changes work.

Ravelry Link

Size:
Any size you want. The sample is 46” tip to tip and 24” down the center

Yarn:
Two colors of any lace/fingering, sock, sport, or DK yarn that is not too fuzzy or nubby. The sample was made with a fingering weight yarn.
Yardage will vary depending on your yarn and finished size.

Hook:
Use a hook a few sizes larger than recommended for your yarn to achieve a more lacey look. The sample was made with a US 8/H/5.00 mm.

Gauge:
Not so important. Work about 10 rows and take a good look, if you want your stitches to be more lacey, use a bigger hook. If they look too lacey/loose, use a smaller hook.

Other Supplies:
Yarn needle

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
hdc ~ half double crochet
dc ~ double crochet
tr ~ treble crochet

Special Stitches:
cl ~ Double Crochet Cluster: Yo, insert hook into st, yo, pull through st, (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yo, insert hook into same st, yo, pull through st, (4 loops on hook), yo, pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through all remaining loops
blm ~ Bloom: (cl, ch 2, cl, ch 2, cl) all in the same st

Getting Started:

At the end of the rows you need to pull the loop that is on your hook up so that it is long, and remove your hook, then the next row is worked by putting your hook back into the loop from the other color. Be sure to read and follow what the pattern says.
I have made a video showing the first several rows to show how this method works.

    This is the most beautiful shawl I have seen in a long time and even with just a quick glance the directions look succinct. Very good job.

    Your shawl is superb. I’ve discoverd it in the website of “Tangled happy”. Yet, I’ve a question before starting it : the proportions of the 2 colors of yarn ; is it 1 “purple” for 3 “lilac”or 1 for 2? (approximatly, I mean).
    Thanks a lot, your pattern is a great présent!
    Have a nice week!

      If you go with 1 to 2 for the ratio between the colors, that should be fine. (sorry I didn’t list amounts, but they will vary depending on how large you make the shawl)

      You are welcome! The 2 color technique done this way is actually quite old, from what I understand, but it is just not commonly used. At least not in the states. I had seen it alluded to in books in the past, and then learned more about it this summer. It is really nifty!

    Lovely pattern! I do have a question. I don’t wear shawls, but I was thinking of using this pattern to make a little lacy insert for a deep-V neckline. I would use #5 crochet thread. If I use just one single color, would I simply turn on each row instead of using the pull-up-a-loop method?

      It should work, as it is symmetrical. I bet that would be really cute!!

    I have asked you a couple of days ago, to explain row 7. What is a wrap? I am not able to proceed from there. could you please explain the whole instructions for Row 7?

    Yes, i know how to do the rows twice, but I don’t know what the “point:” is that you are talking about. Please. help me with the instructions. I am 89 years old and I can’t read your chart either. so that did n

      Sorry if you asked before, I don’t see the question anywhere. Wrap is another name for a shawl. It means to work to the point of the shawl, the shawl is a triangle, and the point of the shawl is the point of the triangle. You can also watch the video for more help.

      Thank you so much for replying to my email. I guess I didn’t make my question very clear. When you arew doing row 7, and you get to the middle blm, I understand the pattern to read sc in the first spacd 2, do a bloom on the middle of the thirm cluster then sc in the last ch2 space. Is that right? I have wated your vidio over 10 times and still couldn’t understand that 7th row. I think I have it now or do I? I am making these for cancer patients at the hospital hospice case. they are always cold. I know that becasue my husband was in huspose and he was always cold. Thanks for your reply. Blessings to you and yours. Nellie Lewis

        There is a sc at the point of row 6, when you work row 7, you do the repeats until you get to that point, so the last sc of the repeats will be in the sc before the point, you will then place a bloom in the sc at the point, and then you will place a sc in the next sc after the point, then you will start the next set of repeats.

    Is there a reason why you don’t want the chart on Pinterest? It’s a free pattern and your website is under it in big letters, so why not?

    By the way, I got here through Pinterest. I guess you should offer your chart/pattern in another way if you don’t want it to be shared …

      May 11, 2015 at 7:54 am (2 years ago)

      Yes, there is. If the chart is shared on Pinterest, there will be many people who will use the chart alone and never come to my site. It’s not about whether or not they know where the pattern came from, it IS about whether or not they have to come to JessieAtHome.com to get the pattern. I do not make a single penny if someone shares the chart on pinterest or anywhere else. The only way I get paid is if they come to my site, which has ads in the sidebar and a few other places. I do things this way so that you do not have to pay for the pattern, but I still get paid. It is extremely disrespectful and unrealistic to expect designers to spend the time designing, writing, and charting a pattern, and then expect them to not get paid for that work. My free patterns bring in an income, but only if people come to my site to get those patterns. And they bring in a little more if people click on the links for the supplies that are in my patterns and buy some supplies through my affiliates. It is a wonderful system that allows you to have free patterns while designers still gt paid, as long as you are graceful enough to play by the rules.

      Honestly, I’ve never tried. I would think you can turn every row if you are using one color and it will work. It seems like it should work, but as I said, I have not tried.
