Free Rectangle Crochet Shawl Pattern – Autumn Jewells Shawl

This is a free pattern for a rectangle crochet shawl using beautiful lacy stitch combination. It creates intricate looking crochet openwork, however it is suitable for advanced beginners.


Are you ready for Autumn? We are still in full swing of summer as I type this. I am not ready to let summer go just yet. However, as crocheters we work one season ahead, don’t we?

I am enjoying the long sunny summer days. Although they are few and far between here in UK, they are so much more precious! But I am also enjoying working on some more upcoming designs and escaping into the season ahead- Autumn.

I love Autumn! All the rich colours of early sunsets, pumpkins and lattes.

Autumn Jewells Rectangle Crochet Shawl Pattern

Rich colour, lacy stitches with small crochet jewels dotted through – that is my rectangle crochet shawl I have designed especially for this event.

It is a rectangle shaped crochet shawl that is beautifully large so you can wrap it around. It measures 165 x 65 cm.

You will need Knit Picks Gloss (Fingering Weight; 220 yards/202 m per 50g; 70% Merino Wool, 30% silk) x 5 skeins in Masala to make this beautiful shawl.

The yarn has been kindly gifted to me by WeCrochet Official for this event.
