Crochet The Rose Petal Shawl Free Pattern: The Inspiration
I love crocheting shawls! They are so beautiful and fun to make. Two weeks ago I released The Vintage Victorian Shawl, which is also very feminine. My Vintage Crochet Series is perfect if you are looking to create fun and delicate projects inspired by past eras. You can also crochet a a matching beret, to complete the vintage look completely.
If you enjoy crochet shawls, you can find The Delicate Rose Vintage Shawl also on my blog. This is a also an original design that is perfect if you are a beginners, but want to make something beautiful. I love shawls so much as they are often so relaxing to make.
This shawl is very simply crocheted with a Half Double Crochet repeat pattern. Once this pattern is repeated to create the large V shaped shawl, the lovely feminine border is then added. This feminine border is made of V stitches and then a chain arch edging is later added. It’s an easy yet beautiful crochet project to make.
Crochet The Rose Petal Shawl Free Pattern: The Yarn
For this project, I used Rico Designs Creative Wool Degrade yarn in shade 02 Fuschia. This is probably my favorite yarn to date! It is so beautiful and soft, and the pink shade is absolutely perfect too. I used this yarn for The Fantine Shawl that I crocheted a few years ago, and which I still absolutely love. This is a great yarn to work a shawl with, as it has a lot of texture to it.
I think I may purchase more of this yarn, as I love it so much! Also, one skein is enough to crochet a whole shawl with, which makes it even more perfect. If you are looking for a lighter and more summery shawl, you can check out The Summer Sunset Shawl. This Summer shawl is crocheted with Rico Designs yarn too, but a cotton/acrylic melange version instead of the wool/acrylic blend that is Creative Wool Degrade yarn. This is perfect for Spring and Summer projects too, and could be a substitute to the wool version.
I hope you enjoy this fun crochet project. It is a perfect wrap for the Winter season. Let me know if you crochet this shawl.

Row 94: Ch 1, turn your work, place SC across the first side of the V of the shawl, then place more SC across the second side of the V of the shawl. Make sure you are placing an even number of SC across the border.
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.

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.
