I designed my Cozy Pocket Shawl Pattern last fall for a special online-only event. I thought you might like to make your own Pocket Shawl too, so today I am sharing the full written pattern below for free.

This pattern has been fully tested and an ad-free PDF version (with stitch diagram) is available for purchase in my Ravelry Shop (if you prefer).

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple: 1 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • The initial ch-2 counts as the first hhdc of the row. This means we sk the stitch beneath it, since we already worked into it as the ch-2.
  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.

Shawl Edging

Rotate your work to continue working across R117; 1 sl st in each st across, (1 sl st, ch 1, 1 sc) in the corner. Rotate your work to continue working across the side edge, working 1 sc in each row end to color change, changing to Color A on the last yarn over of the sc worked into R59 row end.

Pockets

Make 2

Each pocket measures approximately 10 inches X 10 inches (25.5 cm X 25.5 cm). Make one pocket with Color A and one pocket with Color B.

R1: (RS): Ch 25, sk the first 2 chs (counts as 1 hhdc). 1 hhdc in each rem ch across. Turn. [24 hhdc]

R2-R20: Ch 2 (counts as 1 hhdc). 1 hhdc in each st across. Turn.  [24 hhdc]

Pocket Edging

The pocket edging begins by working across R20.

Rnd 1: Ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc), *1 FPhdc around the next st, 1 BPhdc around the next st**. Rep from * to ** across to the last st, 1 hdc in last st, ch 1, rotate to continue working along the side edge. Work 1 sc in each row edge across to the corner, ch 1, rotate to work across the base of R1, 1 sc in each ch across to the corner, ch 1, rotate to continue working across the side edge. Work 1 sc in each row end across to the corner, ch 1 and sl st to the top of the initial ch-2 to join.

Rnd 2: Ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc), *1 FPhdc around the next st, 1 BPhdc around the next st**. Rep from * to ** across to the last st, 1 hdc in last st, ch 2, rotate to continue working along the side edge. Rep from * to ** across to the corner, ch 1, rotate to work across the base of Rnd 1, 1 hdc in the first st. Rep from * to ** across to the last st, 1 hdc in the last st, ch 1, rotate to continue working along the side edge. Rep from * to ** across to the corner, ch 1 and sl st to the top of the initial ch-2 to join. Finish off and weave in ends.

Finishing

Place the Color A pocket on the RS of the Color A shawl edge. Line the pocket up with the bottom edge of the shawl (short edge) and using Color A yarn, whipstitch the pocket to the shawl 5 inches in from each side edge of the shawl. Finish off and weave in ends. Repeat for the Color B pocket using Color B yarn.

Tassel fringe (optional)

You will be attaching one tassel fringe in every other stitch along the short edge of the shawl, using the same color of yarn as the shawl edge itself.  

Note: The shawl edging adds 1 extra tassel fringe on each side, so we need to cut 24 sets of 4-strands of yarn for each shawl edge. 

Cut 96-strands, each measuring approximately 18-inches in length, in each color of yarn. 

Work each tassel fringe, using a lark’s head knot, into the stitches along the short edges of the shawl from the same direction so the tassel knot is tied the same for every knot. Trim the tassel fringe to the same length for both sides of the shawl.
