You’re going to love this lacy shawl crochet pattern.

It’s perfect for spring & summer using cotton yarn. Looking at those snowy mountains behind me at the pictures, that’s what early spring looks like around here.

The shawl uses a combination of basic crochet stitches & there’s just a few easy instructions that gives the flow of the whole pattern.

That means this is a great shawl to crochet when you don’t want to drag the pattern with you.

The Yarn

To crochet this shawl I used 100 % cotton yarn, from 3 brands.

3 brands? You don’t necessarily need to do that too, it was just the yarn I had available.

All 3 has the exact same yardage & thickness. A perfect match.

This lacy shawl crochet pattern is perfect for the warmer season because it’s so lacy.

What I love the most about this shawl is the fact that the stitch pattern looks really decorative, which means it’s a great shawl to wear to spruce up your outfit.

It’s also really soft & easy to wear.

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?

How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

About The Pattern

This lacy shawl crochet pattern is worked from the bottom up. It uses only basic crochet stitches & can be finished quickly.

You will use a bigger crochet hook than the yarn suggest, this will exaggerate the lace look of the shawl after it’s blocked.

Make it with cotton yarn for spring & summer, or with a warmer yarn for fall & winter.

We try our best to include all crochet abbreviations in the list above for the crochet pattern, but sometimes we may forget one or two.

Stitches You Will Need 

You will need to use the chain stitches, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet & double treble crochet.


To crochet this shawl you’ll have to crochet 3 stitch combinations:


Hdc 1 in 3rd ch from hook ( ch counts as 1st st), dc 1 in next st, tr 1 in next st, dtr 1 in next st.


Sc 1 in next st, hdc 1 in next st, dc 1 in next st, tr 1 in next st, dtr 1 in next st.


Dtr 1 in next st, tr 1 in next st, dc 1 in next st, hdc 1 in next st, sc 1 in next st.

Techniques You Will Need 

You will need to know how to change colors.


When changing from one color to another, you’ll never finish the stitch with the color you where working with.

Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.

Repeat this every time you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.
