20 Free Crochet Patterns for Circular Shawls

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

This week we had a request for circular shawl patterns. This roundup includes 20 free crochet patterns for circular shawls.

I have found a number of options for you today in a few different weights of yarn. Some of these work as baby blankets or lightweight afghans too – while others were designed specifically as shawls.

If you are ever searching online – try the following search terms: circular shawls, round shawls, circle shawls, round wraps, circular wraps – many available options you will find will have sleeves or arm holes worked into the pattern.

The designs I chose to share below do not have these options and for the most part are the more vintage style / traditional circular shawl patterns.

I included some gorgeous ones too – although I did not have permission to share the images so please be sure to take a look at the links below (especially love 7 and 9!)

Have fun! ♥ Rhondda

  1. Hi Maggie, it took a moment to load but the pattern link in the Ravelry post that says pdf does work and it opens the free pattern book which includes the pattern. The free pdf is 36 pages and it took about a minute to open on my iPad. All the best, Rhondda

  2. Just letting you know that I went to download the pattern for shawl number 3 and it’s no longer available.

    Very disappointed. Might be time to update this post.

  3. You are very welcome Gloriia 🙂 Even the simple stitches can create beautiful projects 🙂 After a little time you will be trying the more complicated stitches and they will feel easy! It is surprising how quickly it happens too 🙂 If you ever want to try something a little more detailed and learn a whole bunch of more complicated stitches, try one of Dedri’s CALs. She has amazing photo tutorials on her site for every part of the CAL and you learn lots of new stitches. Here’s the link to her most recent two: https://lookatwhatimade.net/crafts/yarn/crochet/sophies-universe-cal-2015/sophies-universe-cal-2015-information/ and https://lookatwhatimade.net/crafts/yarn/crochet/ubuntu/ubuntu-cal-2018-information/ Wishing you the best, Rhondda

  4. These are beautiful shawls, I came across your sight while looking for free patterns on line. I have started my first circle shawl and I am looking for easy to learn stitches so my shawl will not be so plain. I wish I could do so much more when I see what people can do and wonder how they even thought of the design. I only know the slip stitch, SC, and DC. Thanks for sharing so people like me can learn.
