Lacy V Stitch Shawl Free Crochet Pattern


 Skill Level:




  • 4 x 50g light worsted yarn (No 3) – I used Elle Double Knit Timber color – Ancot & Alphenglow (2 each)
    This such a lovely variegated yarn that it makes the easy v stitch just striking!
  • Size 5.00 mm
  • Yarn Needle



DC – double crochet

CH – chain

SL ST – slip stitch


Gauge: Tension/Gauge is not necessary for this project to be perfect


Finished Size:

Approx 30 cm in Width and 120 cm in length

But this can be made in any length!



To make any size – chain a number multiplied by 3 plus 4





CH 60 + 4

Foundation Row: Work 1 DC into the 5th CH from hook, CH 1, work 1 DC into the same CH;

*SKIP 2 CH, work [1 DC, 1 CH, 1 DC] into the next CH, repeat from * to last 2 CH, SKIP 1, work 1 DC into the last CH, TURN

ROW 1: CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 1 DC into the 1st 1 CH space, CH 1, work 1 DC into the same space;

*Work [1 DC, 1 CH, 1 DC] into the next CH space, repeat from * until end, work 1 DC into the top of the 3 CH, TURN

Repeat last ROW to form pattern – work pattern until desired length is reached.

  1. Hi Barbara, You are very welcome 🙂 It is a wonderful idea to make Hug Shawls! I love that you called them Hug Shawls too – it makes the giving of them to your friends even more special 🙂 Best wishes, Rhondda

  2. Thank you for making this pattern available for free in printable PDF format.

    Due to COVID-19, I am crocheting “hug shawls” for my friends whom I would normally hug IRL.

    So far, they’ve been a big hit : )

    take care,
    love and “hugs”,

  3. Hi Donna, Joanita says it is actually a brooch that looks like a button. She pinned it to the place she wanted it to be. If you have a large button you really like you can easily glue a pin backing to it so you can change the button’s position on the shawl when you wear it too 🙂 I’m going to go looking for a button to do this with myself now too! Hope this helps, Rhondda

  4. Hi Donna, I messaged Joanita to double check about the button placement. I will let you know as soon as she responds. Thanks! Rhondda

  5. Hi! This is beautiful. Just one question…where do you sew the button? Can you please give me some idea where on the finished piece I should sew it? Thank you in advance.

  6. Hi Patricia, If you like the look of the yarn I think the closest I’ve seen is James C Brett’s Marble DK yarn – I’ve seen it before in Canada at our Len’s Mill Stores and it is also available online in a few places in Canada and the U.S. – here’s the link to the site itself (James C Brett): and it is available from Deramores here: Hope this helps! Rhondda (the yarn Joanita used is only available in South Africa – it is gorgeous yarn and I wish we could get it here too!!).

  7. I love this pattern and the yarn is beautiful. However I cannot find it anywhere. Can you please suggest a substitute yarn? Again, thank you for the lovely pattern. I really want to make one.
