Crochet The Juliette Shawl Free Pattern: A 19th Century Inspired Wrap
This lovely wrap is inspired by the French Directoire. This era in history is a post Revolution period which spans from 1795 until 1799. This era was a dictatorship which only lasted 4 years and 14 days, and which has become very famous in France because of the changes in all areas it put in place.
Juliette Recamier (1777-1849) was famous for her gentle nature and fondness for literature. She became one of the “three graces” of the Directoire era in Paris. I decided to create a pattern inspired by her and the numerous portraits which were painted of her. If you enjoy vintage shawls and accessories, you can check my vintage crochet series.
Crochet The Juliette Shawl Free Pattern: A Delicate And Feminine Wrap
This wrap is very delicate and feminine. I love it so much! It is crocheted with fine DK/light 3 yarn, which is one of my favorite yarns too. For this project, I used Stylecraft Special DK in shade Cloud Blue. This yarn is perfect for shawls and wraps, and I have used this type of yarn many times prior.
I crocheted this vintage era wrap with fine DK/light 3 yarn a few months ago. It is so delicate and fine, and I love it! I made this patchwork cardigan with fine yarn too. This crochet cardigan is perfect for beginners, and comes in sizes S to XXXL. I absolutely love it so much!
Let me know if you enjoy crocheting with fine yarn as much as I do. I love this type of yarn so much, as it becomes and looks so delicate and beautiful.

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, turn your work, and place a SC across the first edge/side of the shawl. Once your reach the corner, 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.
