Easy Beginner Crochet Shawl Pattern

My Take on the Easy Beginner Crochet Shawl

I did it! I crocheted the Coraline in the Wine Country Shawl by Simply Collectible Crochet with YouTube help from Bobwilson123. This is definitely an easy beginner crochet shawl pattern and I recommend that you get it on your hook right away! It makes a great gift and can be sized up or down simply by adding or removing rows.

This shawl took me approximately 6 hours to complete.  The pattern is very simple and requires a repeating combination of basic stitches until halfway, then you add a stitch, then go back to the repeating pattern. I loved crocheting this one. Because it is that repeating stitch, it is easy to take along or to crochet in front of the tv or while kids are running around. If you have to stop, you won’t struggle to pick up where you left off or have to recount anything.

Searching for Easy Beginner Crochet Shawl Patterns

Earlier in the year, I got my first Yarnbox and it was a wonderful set from Frabjous Fibers Wonderland Yarns. (Check out my review of Yarnbox here.) I got the Compass Kit in Choose Your Path. The colors were lovely, but the pattern that was included was a little beyond my abilities and time available. So, I waited and checked around for other patterns on Ravelry.

If you haven’t used the search feature on Ravelry, you must try it! I love being able to search by the amount of yarn that I have. I hate to find a great pattern and then see that it takes double what I have in my stash. So, if I only have a small amount of yarn, that is the first section I adjust on the search engine. I can’t say enough about how great that search feature is there.

With that in mind, I quickly came across this wonderful pattern for a very simple, but beautiful shawl. It fit the amount of yarn that I had available and I knew I could work it up quickly. Celina Lane created a very easy to follow pattern and then BobWilson123 added the video tutorial. (If you aren’t following her on YouTube yet, add that to your to do list right now.)

Beautiful Shawl to Style

I love that this shawl is so easy to style in different ways.

You can wrap it around like a scarf.

Or you can wear it to one side. This would also look great with a shawl pin.

And of course, you can wear it wrapped lightly around your shoulders.

Who doesn’t love one piece that can be worn in so many ways!


Yarn I used to crochet this shawl:

Frabjous Fibers – Sport Weight – 100% SW Merino – 602 yds, 200g 

This yarn is so lovely to work with and the feel is so soft and comforting on your skin. Definitely find this yarn and give it a squish yourself!

    Pretty! I tried to learn to knit once, but it didn’t go well… is crocheting easier?!

    • Lisa on August 3, 2017 at 7:46 pm

      It depends on you – I find crocheting easier than knitting, but for some people the opposite is true. It is worth a try!

  2. Celina Lane on August 3, 2017 at 7:44 pm

    Thank you so much for the great feature and review! Love your site.

    • Lisa on August 3, 2017 at 7:46 pm

      Thank you for the great pattern!

  3. shelbrown on August 3, 2017 at 8:34 pm

    Aww! Makes me want to pick my needles back up.

    • Lisa on August 3, 2017 at 8:35 pm

      Come on in…the water is fine! 😉 Seriously, this is such an easy project. It would be a great one to jump back in on.

  4. Stacey on August 3, 2017 at 9:33 pm

    This may be something I could actually make! Maybe I will try someday! ????

  5. Sarah on August 4, 2017 at 12:38 am

    :0) I taught myself to crochet at one point… at least I thought I did. I didn’t realize that there are patterns other than just counting. LOL This shawl is pretty!

    • Lisa on August 4, 2017 at 12:54 am

      Too funny! You should give this one a try…it is just a step above counting!

    I love the color combination you chose. I tried to learn a few years ago. My scarf is still jammed in my closet unfinished.

    • Lisa on August 4, 2017 at 12:58 pm

      Time to dig it out! 🙂

  7. Rachel on August 4, 2017 at 2:48 am

    I tried to make something once. It was a disaster! I was so eager and sure I’d be a pro. I bought ALL the supplies. I mean ALL. It was a serious flop and aI never touched them again. Maybe I should try again… 🙂

  8. Carmen on August 4, 2017 at 3:07 am

    Cute! I can’t knit well at all, but I like to crochet. I can’t always find pretty patterns for crochet. This one’s great!

  14. Joanne on August 5, 2017 at 2:58 am

    Beautiful! I tried to crochet at one time & actually managed to finish a scarf, wasn’t half bad either lol… I just kept loosing a stitch every time I went back

  15. Lisa on August 5, 2017 at 4:26 am
