Crochet The Delicate Rose Shawl Free Pattern
Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you a new crochet tutorial, on how to crochet The Delicate Rose Shawl (Free Pattern). This is a great project for beginners, and looks beautiful in all seasons. This crochet pattern is very delicate, and is created with a simple repeat of Treble Crochets. The design is part of my Vintage Crochet Series. Indeed, as I was crocheting this shawl, I was inspired by a shawl I had seen from the 1940s.
The video tutorial for this project can be found here:
Crochet The Delicate Rose Shawl Free Pattern: The Inspiration
This design and shawl is inspired by a shawl from the 1940s that I saw recently. Indeed, I watched a French film recently that took place during the Second World War. During this era in France, shawls were often V shaped, and very wide and snugly. This was because things such as coal and raw materials were a lot more scarce, and people had to think of many different and inventive ways to heat themselves and cook their food. In France, this became a way of life that lasted many years.
Last week I crocheted The Simple Purity Vintage Shawl, inspired by the Victorian Era.
Therefore, shawls and blankets were made very popular during that era. Indeed, these were used as a way to stay warm and cozy. Usually, shawls had a lot of drape and were quite large, so as to be very warm and snug. These shawls often featured a very lacy and detailed designs, with a large border. This is what I tried to render with this new pattern. I crocheted this 1940s inspired shawl a few years ago, if you enjoy this historical era.
I made this shawl larger and longer than I usually would, and I love the effect! It is so beautiful and delicate, yet warm too.
You can complete the 1940s look by adding a simple crocheted French beret to your outfit.
Crochet The Delicate Rose Shawl Free Pattern: The Design
The design for this shawl is simple yet complex. I love this new wrap so much, as it is so different to what I would usually create. The main part of the shawl consists of a simple one row repeat of Treble Crochets. This pattern is inspired by the Granny Triangle Shawl, and I love the effect! It is so different yet so lovely.
The Juliette Wrap features the classic Granny Triangle design, if this is something you enjoy making. I have just realized I haven’t crocheted a classic Granny Triangle shawl in a long time, and I think this may be something I will be doing very soon.
This forms a simple V shaped shawl. After the main part of the shawl is finished, the large elegant border is then added. This not only gives more dimension to the shawl, it also adds a lot of width to it.
The border of the shawl features four rows of V stitches. A final row is then added, which consists of a shell stitch design. I love the mix of all the different stitches, which gives a lot of texture to this shawl. This also creates a very delicate and feminine vibe.
I hope you enjoy this 1940s inspired shawl! Let me know in the comments, as I love to hear about your projects.

Pair of scissors
A tapestry needle
Sl st: slip stitch
SC: Single Crochet (UK Double Crochet)
DC: Double crochet (UK Treble Crochet)
TC: Treble Crochet (UK Double Treble Crochet)
EOR: End of row
To start, make a slip knot. Ch 4, sl st through 1st stitch to form a ring/circle.
Compete rows as follows:
1: Ch 4 (= TC), 4 TC in center circle (=5 TC total).
2: Ch 4 (=TC), place 2 TC between the 1st and 2nd TC from previous row, sk 2 TC, place 3 TC between the last 2 TC from previous row.
3: Ch 4 (=TC), place 2 TC between the 1st and 2nd TC from previous row, sk 2 TC, place 3 TC in next space, sk 2 TC and place 3 TC between the last 2 TC from previous row.
4: Ch 4 (=TC), place 2 TC between the 1st and 2nd TC from previous row, sk 2 TC, place 3 TC in next space, sk 3 TC, place 3 TC in next space, sk 2 TC and place 3 TC between the last 2 TC from previous row.
5: Ch 4 (=TC), place 2 TC between the 1st and 2nd TC from previous row, sk 2 TC, place 3 TC in next space, [sk 3 TC, place 3 TC in next space] twice, sk 2 TC and place 3 TC between the last 2 TC from previous row.
6: Ch 4 (=TC), place 2 TC between the 1st and 2nd TC from previous row, sk 2 TC, place 3 TC in next space, [sk 3 TC, place 3 TC in next space] three times, sk 2 TC and place 3 TC between the last 2 TC from previous row.
7: Ch 4 (=TC), place 2 TC between the 1st and 2nd TC from previous row, sk 2 TC, place 3 TC in next space, [sk 3 TC, place 3 TC in next space] four times, sk 2 TC and place 3 TC between the last 2 TC from previous row.

Do not fasten off.
V stitch and shell border
45: Ch 1, turn your work, place 132 SC across the first side of the V of the shawl; place another 132 SC across the other side of the V of the shawl.
This is the wrong side of the stitches, so just make sure you place all the SC evenly so as not to “tighten” the project.
46: Ch 4 (=DC + ch 1 sp), turn your work, sk 1 st, [place 2 DC into the next stitch (=V stitch), sk 1 st] until you reach the top of the V of the shawl (center of project). Place 4 DC (= 2 V stitches) into top of the shawl. Now [sk 1 st, place 2 DC into next st] until you reach the last 2 stitches at eor. Sk 1 st, ch 1, place a DC into last st.
47: Ch 4 (=DC + ch 1), turn your work, place a V stitch (=2 DC) into V stitch from previous row until center V stitch (top of the “V” of the shawl). Place 4 DC into V stitch at the top of the shawl (=2 V stitches) 2 times (this means you will be placing 2 x 4 DC into the top 2 V stitches at center of shawl); then place a V stitch into each V stitch from previous row until you reach last V stitch. Place a V stitch into the last V stitch, ch 1, sk 1 st, place a DC into last stitch.
48-49: Repeat row 47.
50 (shell stitch edging): Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place 2 DC into same first stitch (=half shell stitch). Sk 2 stitches, [place SC into next st, sk 2 st, place 5 DC into next st (=shell stitch), sk 2 st] until you reach the last stitch. Place a SC into last stitch.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
