Pattern Description:

This is a simple, top down, half circle shawl, that matches the rest of my "Shells & Chains" series. I used Plymouth Yarn's Happy Feet DK weight yarn for the photographed samples, which measures after blocking 60" wide by 22" deep, using 90 grams / 230 yards of yarn.

Shawl is written for a large number of rows, when shawl reaches finished size, simply end on any "shell" row. You can use any yarn & crochet hook, crochet a fabric that makes you happy.

Many thanks to my testers, CollieGrl64, BeverlyGoulet, harnish408, jam52, honeystalks, no1pugmom, & momof3labs, & to June Gilbank ( for her tech editing.

Feel free to make as many of these as you like for local craft fairs/auctions/raffles/bazaars, but please do not sell finished items online. If making for charity, please let me know the name of the charity & include my contact info with the item ( If you have any questions or comments or just want to join like-minded souls, please join my Ravelry group at Thanks!


shell = 2". Gauge does not matter; crochet a nice, open fabric that drapes well

My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
