Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you the crochet Constance Prayer Shawl (free pattern). This new crochet pattern is part of my Vintage Crochet Series; this prayer shawl is very delicate and perfect for the Spring and Summer. Crocheted with some vintage yarn I found in a charity shop, this shawl is both feminine and easy to make.

The video tutorial for this project can be found here:

Crochet Constance Prayer Shawl Free Pattern: The Inspiration

I love crochet prayer shawls so much! They really are so soothing, and I love the beauty that comes out of having crocheted a new prayer shawl. This new crochet pattern is part of my Vintage Crochet Series. The Vintage Crochet Series features many different projects, which are inspired by different fashions from the past decades. These vintage designs feature projects ranging from the 18th Century up until the 1980s. I love these vintage projects so much!

This crochet shawl is so feminine!

This new crochet shawl is inspired by the Edwardian Era. I love the Edwardian Era fashion so much; The Madeleine Shawl from a few years ago is a perfect example of an Edwardian Era Wrap too. The Edwardian Rose Wrap is also very feminine and beautiful, perfect for all seasons and special occasions.

The Edwardian Era is a historical era in England from 1901 to 1911 (or sometimes it is extended to 1918, the end of World War 1). The fashion from this time frame is both elegant and feminine, featuring intricate designs and lovely vivid colors.

Crochet Constance Prayer Shawl Free Pattern: The Yarn

For this project, I used Rowan Cotton Glace yarn. I found 4 skeins of this yarn a year ago in a charity shop in the North East of England. This yarn is still being produced, but the “newer” version is very different from the one I purchased from the charity shop.

This is a very versatile project

I love crocheting wraps and accessories using vintage yarn found in charity shops! Indeed, the Adrienne Shawl I made a few months ago is also a project I made using vintage yarn found in a charity shop.

Rowan Cotton Glace yarn is the perfect yarn for the Spring and Summer season. Indeed, this yarn is made from very high quality 100% mercerized cotton yarn. It is very easy to work with this yarn, and it creates the most lovely and feminine crocheted shawl.

This crochet wrap is very delicate and dainty. It features an open shell stitch pattern which is so feminine. I used this stitch a few months ago for the Juliette Shawl.

This crochet shawl is very versatile and fun to make, and can be worn as a scarf too! Let me know what you think of this project in the comments.

Single Crochet Edging

Once you have completed the main part of the shawl, you are going to be placing SCs all across the 4 sides of the shawl.

Ch 1 and place a SC across the first edge/side of the shawl. Once your reach the corner, place 2 SCs into the corner stitch and turn your shawl perpendicularly so as to work on the other side of the shawl. Please make sure you place SC evenly all along this edge as this is the row side of the shawl, and there are no specific stitches into which you will place your SC.

Repeat this process until you have gone around the four sides of your shawl.

Once you have gone all the way around, slip stitch to the first chain 1 and fasten off.

Tidy up all loose ends.

    The most enjoyable projects I’ve done since starting crochet have been your online tutorials. I loved the beret. You are so thorough! You don’t just show the easy parts. You complete them. PLEASE keep making projects. Your vintage content is unlike anything else on the web. YOU ARE MY FAVORITE CROCHET CREATOR!!!

      Good morning! Thank you so much for this lovely comment, it truly has made my day! Online creating can be so tough and daunting some days (although I love it), and your comment just makes it all worth it. You don’t know how much this means to me.
      Thank you again and I hope you have a wonderful day!
      PS I will definitely continue my Vintage Crochet Series πŸ™‚

        Hi Again! I finally mastered this beautiful pattern but as I’m working it I find it’s a bit narrow. Is there a way to work additional chain stitches to make it wider while maintaining the correct pattern of stitches? Are there multiplesI can apply?
        Also, does your Patreon have more patterns than the ones on here or YouTube? Let me know! THANKS!!!
