Crochet Pink Pocket Shawl Free Pattern: The Inspiration
I have been wanting to crochet a new version of a pocket shawl for a long time now. You can find the pattern for The Perfectly Pretty Pocket Shawl here, which I crocheted just under two years ago. This crochet pocket scarf was such a huge success! I loved making and wearing it. Indeed, I love pocket shawls, especially for the mid seasons such as Autumn or Spring.
I had wanted to crochet a pink pocket shawl for a while now. Indeed, I thought a pink or pastel pocket scarf would be just perfect. And I wasn’t wrong! This pocket scarf is just so perfect! I love how feminine and soft it looks, and it is perfect in all seasons.
I also crocheted a a hooded pocket shawl some time ago, which is also a great accessory to have on hand. Indeed, a hooded pocket scarf is perfect for those chillier days where you need to wrap up before leaving the house. And if you prefer a more “Autumnal” wrap, The Harvest Moon Pocket Shawl is perfect; indeed, it combines the simplicity of a pocket scarf in a very stylish way.
As you can see, I do love my pockets wraps! And I do plan on making many more this Autumn.
Crochet Pink Pocket Shawl Free Pattern: A Delicate And Feminine Accessory
As you know, I love making my crochet items and accessories feminine. I love soft and flowy designs, delicate patterns, and pastel colors. Indeed, I thought it was high time I crocheted another pocket scarf with a feminine touch to it, and the color pink came naturally thereafter. I am already releasing more autumnal projects starting in August, and I do hope you will enjoy this new pocket shawl design.
If you love pockets, you can have a look at my Kitty Cat Cardigan pattern. Indeed, this fun cardigan features cat like pockets, and was a huge success when I released it last month. I hope you enjoy this project too!
I think pockets are amazing on crochet projects, and are so convenient for every day life too. Let me know in the comments if you would like to see a pocket shawl with cat pockets!
Crochet Pink Pocket Shawl Free Pattern: The Yarn
I used pink yarn for this project. Indeed, I had Sirdar Number 1 Aran Stonewashed yarn in my stash, and thought I would use this yarn for this project. For this project, I used shade 801 Pink Rinse, and it was a lovely yarn to crochet with. If you live in the USA or Canada, and cannot access this yarn easily, I recommend using these following yarns as substitutes.
I recommend using Red Heart Yarns Baby Soft Baby Steps in shade pink, as this yarn is an almost exact match on many points. It also feels very similar I found. Also, I crocheted this vintage prayer shawl with this exact yarn. It is a great yarn to crochet shawls and larger projects with, as it is such beautiful quality, as well as very economical. I also crocheted The Periwinkle Cocoon Shrug with this yarn.
If you are looking for a more stonewashed look, similar to my project, I suggest you use Lion Brand’s jeans yarn. It is also a medium 4 Aran weight yarn, and looks and feels very similar also. I crocheted The Cornflower Poncho and The Biker Man Scarf with Lion Brand’s Jeans yarn, and it also had a very similar vibe.
Indeed, I hope these different yarns listed help you with the making of this simple project.

Pair of scissors
SC: Single Crochet (UK Double Crochet)
DC: Double Crochet (UK Treble Crochet)
HDC: Half Double Crochet (UK Half Treble Crochet)
Sl st: Slip stitch
EOR: End of row
Pattern starts here
Ch 44 (pattern calls for a multiple of 2 + 2 for base chain)
Note: 2 DC into 1 st=V stitch
Complete rows as follows:
1: Place 2 DC into 4th ch from hook, [sk 1 ch, place 2 DC in next ch] until last 2 ch; sk 1 ch, 1 DC into last ch.
2: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work. Place 2 DC (=V stitch) into next V stitch from previous row until eor, finishing off row by placing a DC into the ch 3 from previous row.
3-98: repeat row 2.
Fasten off, tidy up your loose ends.
Do not fasten off.
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).
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.
2: Ch 3 (=DC), DC into next st until you reach the first corner; in the first corner stitch, place 2 DC into this st; carry on placing a DC into each stitch across, going all the way around the shawl, and making sure you place 2 DC into each corner stitch (you will have 4 corners in total). Sl st to first ch 3 to close off round, fasten off.
Sew in 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 2 (=HDC), turn your work, HDC into next stitch and every stitch until eor.
3-23: repeat row 2
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing your pocket onto your shawl.
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 3” (=7,5 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 V stitches and border 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.
