Beautiful Blanket Shawl Pattern

The Beautiful Blanket Shawl is a super simple, lightweight and incredibly soft crochet project.

The finished blanket shawl is long enough to wrap around you and perfect for adding a bit of warmth and a feeling of security, without being heavy and cumbersome.

Step into the luxurious world of Bernat® Plentiful™ yarn where rich, lightweight fibers caress you with coziness. With a touch of wool and a soft fuzzy halo reminiscent of mohair, Bernat® Plentiful™ wraps you in abundance. Its generous yardage means that one ball of yarn is often all you need to knit or crochet a complete project and its cloud-like softness just keeps on giving. Using just one ball for a whole project means fewer ends to weave in and no worries about matching color lots.

Beautiful Blanket Shawl

[disclaimer] I received the yarn for this pattern from Yarnspirations.[/disclaimer]

I have included instructions to make my Beautiful Blanket Shawl with the yarn I used, as well as, a second set of instructions at the end of my post, to allow you to substitute with an alternate brushed boucle type of yarn.

Since the making of this project Bernat Plentiful has been discontinued. I have held onto this pattern for almost a year now but thought maybe someone else has some in their yarn stash and would like to put it to use…

I use my beautiful blanket wrap almost daily during the summer – when it is crazy hot outside and I’m in summer shorts and tanks and I go into the house for bit (in the air conditioned coolness), I wrap myself up in this soft lightweight shawl, or use it to cover my lap.

You can still find some Bernat Plentiful online in shops like this one and this one on Etsy and sometimes on eBay. You can also check on Ravelry, to see if someone who has some in their stash is looking to sell it.

Helpful Tutorials

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple: (1), plus 2 for the starting chain
  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. This gives the edge a more finished look and is visually the same as the top of the stitches from the final row you will be working for the scarf.  You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
  • To change the blanket shawl length, chain until you reach your desired shawl length and add 2 more chains. 
  • To increase the width of your blanket shawl, work more rows.
  • The initial ch-3 counts as 1 dc.
