I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love big triangle shawls that I can wrap around my neck. I’ve designed some big thick and juicy ones like the Twilight Fade Shawl and smaller asymmetrical ones like the Amazeballs Shawl. However I wanted to design a piece that could be transitional from winter into spring.
You can find the free crochet Precious Petal shawl pattern in this post below, or an ad-free print friendly version on Ravelry here, or on Etsy here. *The ad-free PDF includes a bonus crochet stitch chart.
The Precious Petal shawl was created to be that perfect transition piece. It’s warm enough to wear during the winter, but also lacy and light enough to take you right into spring.
I love wearing triangle shawls wrapped around my neck to keep me warm, but as the weather gets warmer I can throw it around my shoulders to accent my favourite dress on a cool spring night.

This shawl is created by increasing on one side until your desired size is reached. Gague is not critical for this project and your shawl may end up larger or smaller if your gauge is off. You can also adjust the yarn for this project and keep increasing until your shawl as at your desired size. Petal counts as 1 st. When counting stitches for your gauge swatch each petal counts as 1 stitch.
Row 1: Ch 4, dc in 4th ch from the hook (sk 3 ch counts as dc). Turn. (2 dc)
Row 2: Ch 2, dc in top of ch 4, (counts as dc2tog), petal, dc in top of tch. Turn. (3 sts)
Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as a dc here and throughout), 2 dc in first st, ch 1, 2 dc in next. Turn. (5 dc)
Row 4: Ch 2, dc in next (counts as dc2tog here and throughout), Petal, dc3tog over next 2 dc and tch, petal, dc in tch. Turn. (5 sts)
Row 5: Ch 3, 2 dc in first st, ch 1, 3 dc in dc3tog, ch 1, 2 dc in dc2tog. Turn (8 sts)
Row 6: Ch 2, dc in next, petal, dc3tog, petal, dc3tog over 2 dc and tch, petal, dc in tch. (7 sts)
Row 7: Ch 3, 2 dc in first st, *ch 1, 3 dc in dc3tog. Repeat from * across to last dc2tog, ch 1, 2 dc in last dc2tog.
Row 8: Ch 2, dc in next, *petal ** dc3tog over next 3 dc. Repeat from * ending last repeat at ** dc3tog over last 2 dc and tch, petal, dc in tch.
Repeat rows 7 and 8 until your shawl measures approximately 50” in length along the long edge, ending after a row 7. If you want your shawl to be larger, continue repeating in pattern until your desired length.
I hope that you enjoy creating this deliciously textured Precious Petal shawl and I can’t wait to see what you do with this pattern!
