Crochet Shawl Pattern – Red Flame Shawl

Spread the yarn love! Share this post:

This lovely crochet shawl pattern uses the easy to work crochet flame stitch as the basis of the pattern. I fell in love with this stitch and then found a great yarn to work with that I felt matched the idea of the flame stitch. So, I created this quick little shawl that you can wear as a scarf, shawl, or wrap. I hope you enjoy making this crochet flame stitch pattern as much as I did!

The pattern is really flexible and easy to make larger or smaller. The finished size of my shawl is 64 inches long and 15 inches at its widest point.

Crochet Flame Stitch Tutorial:

We have a whole post on how to work the crochet flame stitch! This tutorial post will walk you through the steps of the pattern in regards to the flame stitch part. This whole shawl is just done in the flame stitch. The only change is that you will leave one flame cluster at both ends of the rows as just the flame and then you will move over one to start the next foundation row. So, you leave a triangle of flame clusters on the outer edges of each row.

Ch 252

Row 1 – work 1 sc into the 2nd ch from hook, *ch 3, skip 3 ch, 1 sc into next ch, ch 3, skip 1 ch, 1 sc into next h, ch 3, skip 3 ch, 1 sc into next ch; repeat from * to the end of the row, turn

Row 2 – Ch 1, 1 sc into 1st sc, *ch 1, skip next ch 3 space, dc2tog into next ch 3 arch, into same arch as first dc2tog work {ch 3, dc2tog} 4 times (so, 5 total dctog stitches in each flame), ch 1, skip next ch 3 space, 1 sc into next sc; repeat from * to end, turn

Row 3 – Ch 7 (counts as 1 tc, ch 3), skip next ch 3 arch, 1 sc into next ch 3 arch, ch 3, 1 sc into next ch 3 arch, 1 tc into next sc, *ch 3, skip next ch 3 arch, 1 sc into next ch 3 arch, ch 3, 1 sc into next ch 3 arch, ch 3, 1 tc into next sc; repeat from * to end, turn

Row 4 – Ch 1, 1 sc into 1st tc, *ch 1, skip next ch 3 space, dc2tog into next ch 3 arch, into same arch as the first dc2tog work {ch 3, dctog} 4 times, ch 1, 1 sc into next tc; repeat from * to end, work last sc into 4th ch of ch7 at beginning of previous row, turn

Row 5 – Skip the first whole flame and begin row 5 in the first sc after the first flame – Ch 7 (counts as 1 tc, ch 3), skip next ch 3 arch, 1 sc into next ch 3 arch, ch 3, 1 sc into next ch 3 arch, 1 tc into next sc, *ch 3, skip next ch 3 arch, 1 sc into next ch 3 arch, ch 3, 1 sc into next ch 3 arch, ch 3, 1 tc into next sc; repeat from * to end with a tc into the last sc before the last flame cluster at the end of row 5, turn

Row 6 – Ch 1, 1 sc into 1st tc, *ch 1, skip next ch 3 space, dc2tog into next ch 3 arch, into same arch as the first dc2tog work {ch 3, dctog} 4 times, ch 1, 1 sc into next tc; repeat from * to end, work last sc into 4th ch of ch7 at beginning of previous row, turn

Repeat rows 5 – 6 – this will create a decrease of one flame cluster on each end for each row. This creates the triangle shaping.

This shawl is 14 flame clusters in width. The last row is just one row 6 of one flame cluster.



Red Flame Crochet Shawl Tips:

  • Block this when finished to get the best look and stitch definition.
  • To increase the size of the pattern, make your initial chain longer – remember that you need to have at least two sets to decrease properly, so add increments of 20 to the original chain length and sketch it out before you start to make sure you end with 1 in the middle of the last row.
  • For extra fun, try adding a tassel to the end of each.
