Crochet Esther Vintage Shawl Free Pattern: The Inspiration

I love reading the Bible, and the Book of Esther is one of my favorite books. Part of my Vintage Crochet Series, this shawl is both feminine and easy to crochet! I also love Prayer Shawls so much! They are so relaxing and have such a wonderful purpose too. If you are wondering what a prayer shawl is, it is a shawl that you crochet with someone in mind that you are praying over as you crochet it.

The Angel Prayer Shawl is very feminine and pretty. It features a lovely open shell stitch, and can be crocheted in many different colors too. The Constance Prayer Shawl is also a perfect project for the Spring and Summer, as it is very lightweight and can be worn as a scarf too.

Last week I released The Angeline Crochet Shawl which is also part of my Vintage Crochet Series. It is so beautiful and it is very cozy too. This shawl is inspired by 19th Century French fashion, and it is so delicate and pretty.

As I stated earlier, the Book of Esther is one of my favorite books in the Bible. I love the resilience and grace of Queen Esther, and I hope this shawl pattern renders these qualities through it’s design.

This crochet shawl is so pretty!

This is the first time I have crocheted a shawl directly inspired by a character from The Bible, and I loved doing this! Obviously I cannot know exactly what a shawl/wrap would look like in the times of Queen Esther and King Xerxes, however I did imagine a shawl to be a certain way!

This wrap is delicate and pretty. It features an openwork shell stitch that is very easy to crochet. This stitch creates a very elegant and elevated look which I believe a queen could wear. I love being inspired by The Bible, and Queen Esther is definitely an example I believe women can follow.

The rectangle shape of this shawl is also very elegant. I can definitely imagine this shawl wrapped across my shoulders in this coming Spring and Summer. This wrap is also a perfect option for a special occasion such as a wedding or baptism.

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.
