Flower Puff Shawl

The Flower Puff Shawl is a triangular shawl, alternating flower lace stitches with flowing raised shell stitches forming beautiful waves. This design is full of visual texture and has a somewhat rounded shape instead of a deeper V point. It’s worked top-down and made up of 12 rows that are repeated four times. It has the perfect measurements to wear as a shawl or wrapped around your neck and can easily be adjusted. Thanks to my friends at Clover USA, you can make your new favorite shawl using this free crochet shawl tutorial!

About this pattern

This crochet shawl tutorial is for advanced crocheters or adventurous beginners. It’s not as simple as most of my other shawls, but not too complicated you’ll give up. The shawl is worked top down and consists of 12 rows that are repeated: some rows are simple single or double crochet stitches, some rows require a bit more concentration with puff stitches and post stitches. Don’t worry, it’s not that hard and below you can find a video tutorial which shows you how to make each row.

Clover products you’ll need

This shawl is made with a gradient plied yarn cake which is not twisted. For this type of yarn it’s highly recommended to use a Clover crochet hook as it will make a big difference working with splitting yarn. I’ve already been using my Clover hooks for a long time and luckily they also had all the other materials I needed for this project.

You’ll definitely need some Clover stitch markers. I used them for marking the center ch-2 spaces, but I highly recommend using them for the first and last stitch as well. That way you’ll know for sure you’re increasing in the right stitches, as the first 3 chains can be easily mistaken. For the tassels you’ll need a Clover tassel maker and for weaving in the ends you’ll need a Clover tapestry needle.

Stitch count

The table below shows the rows you should repeat and the amount of stitches you should have at the end of each row. The rows with flowers also state the amount of dc you should have at both sides. For example row 10, you should have 9 flowers and 3 dc on both sides.

Tassels

Tassels are great for a final touch. It’s very easy to make them using a Clover tassel maker.

1. Wound yarn around the tassel maker 55 times. Cut two more strands which are about 40 cm / 16″.

2. Add a knotted cord on top

3. Cut the yarn on the bottom (opposite of your knot)

4. Knot a strand around the tassel, about 1 cm from the top knot

5. Trim the bottom

Blocking

If your shawl shape looks a bit off, for example without a straight edge, you can easily fix it with the blocking method. I wrote a blocking tutorial here.

    Hallo Wilma, dieser Puffschal ist wirklich sehr schön. Vielleicht, wenn sie ihre Anleitungen mit einer Häkelschrift versehen würden, dann wäre auch den nicht englisch sprachigen geholfen. Mir auch. Das wäre echt toll. Lg mb

    Hi Wilma,
    I love this pattern. Love all your shawl patterns! But when I go to pin this one on Pinterest the pop up shawl comes up instead of the flower Puff shawl.
