FREE Vintage Crochet Shawl Pattern Easy

This is a FREE crochet Shawl pattern . A circular shawl ideal to crochet for a new babies christening shawl or like I did and use a heavier yarn for a pretty shawl .

Free Vintage shawl pattern (modernised) EASY circular shawl

 My great aunt came to visit us, she is 95 and every year she says this is my last year.... she just gets on a PLANE and fly's up to Scotland for her week's holiday. She really is amazing, I wanted to make her something special for her birthday as it fell on her visit,
 
I found this beautiful vintage antique pattern and thought how awesome it would be to make it for my Aunt.
 
The shawl can be used as a lap blanket or a shawl, like a christening shawl, as the stitches mean it is not a heavy piece, and sits snugly onto my aunt making her feel very cosy but not too suffocated as some of the more modern blankets make her feel, and obviously still able to move her hands and arms freely whilst keeping her neck and top of her shoulders warm. This would also make a gorgeous christening blanket for a new baby.


This is MY Interpretation of an antique pattern. (Source: found at Hathitrust.org Schumacker, Anna. [from old catalog]. The Columbia Book of Yarns. 17th ed. Philadelphia: Manufacturers of Columbia yarns, 1916.  )  If you have ever tried to make a vintage pattern before in todays terminology it can be near on impossible.
Hence why I have written this out

Using  a 4.5mm hook , 2x 100grms Double Knit Yarn ( I used 2 colors) written in US terms.

Rnd  7-21 continue working in increasing rounds in established fashion.

BORDER:
RND 1:Make 2 dc in EACH ch 1 space around, slip to join and slip in between the first of the 2 dcs
RND 2: ch3, 1dc,ch1, 2dc in the middle of the previous rounds 2 dc stitches, continue working shell inbetween the 2dcs of previous round by (2dc, ch1, 2dc) around. slip to join top of ch3, nd slip to ch1 to start next round.

You will continue working Round 4 for the remainder of the shawl.

I worked for another 10 rounds. this took the shawl to just below my elbows making it easy for her to move around.

If you feel your shawl is drawing in too much then you can make changes to your hook by going up a size...or add in a few increases  ( work 2 sets of the shell in the 1 shell from previous round) ( I found by changing up a hook was sufficient to complete the shawl.

EDGING:   ch3, *dc between the shell just worked and work 9 treble crochet in the middle of next shell.* repeat ** around.  fasten off and weave in all ends
