Crochet Lavender Hooded Pocket Shawl Free Pattern: The Design
I have wanted to create a new design for a hooded pocket shawl for a long time now. You can find The Simple Purity Hooded Pocket Shawl on my blog. I designed this project a year ago and I still love this pocket shawl so much. I love how soft and beautiful it looks. This year, I wanted to bring a different hooded pocket shawl design to the blog. As you know, I absolutely love the color lavender at the moment. I feel like all of my projects are lavender at the moment. Indeed, I crocheted the The Vintage Lavender Cape last week; this crochet cape is part of my Vintage Crochet Series. I also crocheted this vintage Lavender shawl a few weeks ago.
So I can honestly say that the color lavender is really attracting me at the moment. I thought crocheting a lavender hooded pocket shawl would be perfect for coming season. It is both a soft and feminine color, which I love. I thought the addition of the puff stitches on the pockets elevated the whole look of this crochet pocket shawl. The hood gives this project an extra advantage, as this will keep us nice and warm for the coming future months.
Crochet Lavender Hooded Pocket Shawl Free Pattern: The Yarn
For this project I used Paintbox Simply Aran yarn, which is one of my favorite yarns. Indeed, this yarn is super soft and amazing, and is very affordable too. I love all of the color choices available for this yarn. Last month I used Paintbox Simply Aran yarn to crochet The Kitty Cat Cardigan, which is one of my absolute favorite designs to date.
This yarn is very soft, and so versatile. I used 5 skeins of yarn for this pocket shawl with a hood.
I love the simplicity of this hooded pocket scarf. Indeed, the simple pattern repeat of row after row of Half Double Crochets gives this project a harmonious look. The added pockets which feature the puff stitch elevate the whole shawl in a delicate way. This is a great crochet shawl for beginners.
The simple border is also a nice touch, as is the hood. This is a great Autumn Winter wrap to crochet.

Complete rows as follows:
1: Place HDC into 3rd ch from hook and into each ch until eor.
2: Ch 2 (=HDC), turn your work. Place HDC into next stitch until eor.
3-137: repeat row 2.
Fasten off, tidy up your loose ends.
Pockets (make 2)
1: HDC into 3rd ch from hook (first ch 2 counts as a HDC), and place a HDC into each ch until eor.
2: ch 1 (counts as 1st st), turn your work; place a puff stitch into next st, which is yarn over, go into next st, yarn over and pull through the st (you will have 3 loops on your hook). Repeat this process 4 more times, you should have 11 loops on your hook; now yarn over and pull through all 11 loops. Ch 1. Place a SC into next st.
[Place a puff st into the next st, then SC into next st] until eor. Finish row on a SC.
3: ch 2 (=HDC), turn your work, HDC into next stitch and every stitch until eor.
4-5: Repeat row 3.
6-17: Repeat rows 2 through 5 (3 times).
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing your pocket onto your shawl.
Place your pockets to the side for later.
Place your pocket shawl flat on the right side, and fold it in half so as to create a central crease.
With measuring tape, measure 9” (23 cm) from the center crease, and place your first stitch marker. Repeat this process on the other side. Once you have done this, unfold your pocket shawl so you can work along the marked edge of the project.
Complete rows as follows
1: Ch 2 (=HDC), and place HDCs all along the top of the shawl from one stitch marker to the other.
This is the “wrong” side of the stitches, so make sure you place these HDCs at equal intervals. Make sure you have the same amount of stitches on each side of the center.
2: Ch 2 (=HDC), place a HDC into each HDC from the previous row until eor.
3-28: repeat row 2.
Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing the hood seam.
Once you have finished all your rows, take your hood and fold the top in half.
Using the mattress stitch, sew each side of the hood together to create the hood.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
Attach yarn onto shawl just next to either side of the hood.
Row 1: Ch 1 (=SC), place a SC evenly spaced out all along the edge of the shawl (across all 4 sides). When you reach a corner, place 2 SC together in that stitch (into each of the 4 corners).
Once you reach the hood, just go around the whole hood with SCs.
When you reach the first ch 1, sl stitch through this stitch.
There isn’t a specific number of SC that you need to place, just make sure they are evenly placed around the shawl.
Sew in your loose ends.
Sew your pockets onto your shawl
Place your 1st pocket onto the right side of your shawl, making sure you are placing it as follows. Measure 2,5” (=6 cm) from the bottom edge (this is about 3 rows and bottom border for me), and place your pocket there, making sure you place it at the center (this was again in between 3,5” on either side for me). With long tail of yarn, sew in your pocket onto project.
Using your preferred stitch, start sewing your pocket in at the very top corner, going all the way down, and sewing the bottom of the pocket in. Then go all the way up again until you reach the other top corner of the pocket. Fasten off, leaving entire top of pocket free from sewing.
Repeat this onto the other side of shawl with the second pocket.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
