Pocketed Shawl Crochet Patterns Frequently Asked Questions
What is a crochet pocket shawl?
The very basic essence of this design is that you can make a crochet rectangle that wraps around the body, ending at other fingertip with a pocket for your hands. There are many different options for pocketed crochet shawls. But the gist is that it’s a wrap (with our arms, that would be pocket cardigan or sweater) that has pockets, usually (but not always) one for each hand.
How do you crochet a pocket shawl for beginners?
Pocket shawls do not require any shaping, making them ideal for beginners. Most pocket shawls use simple stitches like single crochet, half double crochet, or double crochet, making them an excellent choice for beginners who want to wear their work.
What’s the best yarn for crochet pocket shawls?
Shawls are great because you can use any type of yarn. Wool, acrylic, cotton or a blend. Wool and acrylic yarns are best for fall and winter shawls to keep you nice and warm. Cotton or a cotton blend yarn would be a great option for spring and summer shawls.
What weight of yarn is best for a pocket shawl?
You can make a crochet pocket shawl out of any weight yarn you want. Most shawls require DK or lighter yarn, with many patterns requiring fingering weight. These lightweight yarns contribute to the stitch definition and elegance of the pocket shawl patterns.
What is the best crochet stitch for a shawl?
There is no single or unique stitch that is considered to be the best for pocket shawls. Some crochet stitches, such as puff stitch, waffle stitch, and cable stitch, are ideal for creating a beautiful pattern and texture. To add variety, combine them with some basic stitches.
If you want to finish a pocket shawl quickly, consider using double or treble crochets. For a ribbed effect, try crocheting only on the back loops, as in front post double crochet and back post double crochet.
How wide should a pocket shawl be?
This varies depending on the individual, but a typical width is 60-65 inches. A pocket shawl’s length can be easily adjusted by crocheting more or fewer rows. When making a pocket shawl, keep the wearer’s size in mind because you want the shawl to be the length from fingertip to fingertip.
