Crochet Angeline Vintage Shawl Free Pattern: A Vintage French Shawl

It is no secret that I love the 19th Century. I actually love the 19th Century so much that I studied Romanticism in French Painting in the 19th Century for my Master Degree. Indeed, I have such a passion for history and art history too. These subjects have inspired many of my previous designs, such as The Therese Vintage Shawl and The Angel Prayer Shawl, which I designed a few weeks ago.

This vintage shawl is so feminine

Not only do I love the 19th Century, but I adore 19th Century literature too. I have read many French 19th Century authors, as I am French myself. This has inspired a passion for many books, including Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Indeed, this book is my favorite book in the whole wide world, and I love rereading it too.

Many of my previous projects have been inspired by this wonderful book. The first project I created inspired by Les Miserables is The Fantine Shawl from a few years ago. To this date, this is one of my favorite projects to date.

The Cosette Shawl and The Eponinine Wrap are also inspired by this book. If you enjoy the 19th century, and even historical designs in general, please don’t forget to check out my Vintage Crochet Series.

Crochet Angeline Vintage Shawl Free Pattern: The Yarn

For this vintage crochet project, I used Super Soft Baby Double Knit yarn by James C Brett. This light 3/DK weight is perfect for this shawl; this yarn can be substituted by Bernat Softee Baby yarn too.

I love crocheting projects with light 3/DK weight yarns as these look so delicate once worked up. The Constance Prayer Shawl is beautiful and a perfect example of a dainty accessory crocheted with fine yarn. This delicate purse and easy silky scrunchie are also perfect to crochet with light 3 yarn.

Do you enjoy crocheting with finer yarn too? I know that I do, because it is perfect to crochet with for many different projects. This feminine hexagon cardigan is made with light 3 yarn, and it is so beautiful and perfect for all seasons.

Level: Easy/beginner

Gauge

4” (10 cm): 12 stitches

4” (10 cm): 12 rows

Size of finished shawl (including border)

27,5” (70 cm) x 84” (213 cm) at largest point.

Notes

I will be using US terms (British terms in brackets).

This pattern is worked from the top down. This means we will be crocheting this shawl from the largest point (top), to the bottom, by decreasing row after row.

A simple V stitch edging is added at the end of the project.

You will need

3 skeins of Super Soft Baby Double Knit yarn by James C Brett in shade Lilac, or 2 skeins of Bernat Softee Baby in your preferred shade.

A 4,5 mm crochet hook

Pair of scissors

A tapestry needle

Abbreviations

Ch: chain

St: Stitch

Sk: skip

Sl st: slip stitch

HDC: Half Double Crochet (UK Half Double Crochet)

DC: Double crochet (UK Treble Crochet)

EOR: End of row

Pattern

Make a slip knot and ch 259.

1: HDC in 3rd chain from hook, HDC in next ch until eor (first ch 2 counts as a HDC).

2: Turn your work, sl st through first 2 stitches; ch 2 in second stitch (=HDC), HDC into next st until you reach the last 2 stitches, leaving these 2 last stitches unworked.

3-68: Repeat row 2.

Your last row should have 2 stitches on it. Fasten off.

V stitch edging/border

Attach yarn on either corner of the shawl. We will be crocheting a SC edging across the β€œV” sides of the shawl.

Row 1: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch); SC into first stitch and each stitch across the both sides of the β€œV” of the project.

Please note this is the β€œwrong” side of stitches (meaning we are working across the row side), so there won’t be a specific stitch into which we will be working these SC; therefore make sure you place these SCs evenly across.

Please also note that Single Crochets β€œtighten” a project, so make sure you place enough SCs across the β€œV” of the shawl. You can also go up a hook size if your gauge is tight, as this will help creating a looser SC row. If you go up a size hook, make sure you keep the same hook size for the whole border.

Row 2

Row 2: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into the same 1st stitch (=first V stitch). Sk a st, place a V stitch into next st until you reach the end of the first side.

Once you reach the top of the β€œV” of the shawl, place 2 V stitches into each of the 3 SCs at the very top of the β€œV”. This means placing 4 DCs into each of those 3 SCs at the top of the β€œV”.

Now sk a stitch, place a V stitch into next stitch until you reach the end of the second side of the β€œV”.

Row 3: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into the same 1st stitch; *sk 1 st, place V stitch into next st * until you reach the top of the β€œV”.

Once you reach the top of the β€œV” of the shawl, place 2 V stitches into each of the 2 SCs at the very top of the β€œV”. This means placing 4 DCs into each of those 2 SCs at the top of the β€œV”.

Now sk a stitch, place a V stitch into next stitch until you reach the end of the second side of the β€œV”.

Row 4: Repeat row 3.

Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
