Ottobre Shawlette Free Crochet Pattern and Tutorial

I created this crochet shawlette as a gift for my sister in law. She has an October birthday which means chilly mornings and evenings with warm afternoons, so this Berroco Modern Cotton DK was a great fit for my shawlette. I love working with this silky soft cotton yarn. I’m ready to create even more crochet wearables with it.




The Ottobre Shawlette is perfect for fall or spring, as it’s not too heavy and it’s on the smaller side. It can be worn as a lightweight wrap or a scarf. I love how all the textures and open spaces work so well together. I chose four colors to alternate throughout in different size stripes. I think all the texture in this shawlette would also add interest to a single solid color yarn as well. I’d love to see what colors you choose to crochet your own Ottobre Shawlette-Berroco has such a gorgeous selection!

I also paired this shawlette with this stunning pin * from Polymer Playin. The copper and green are amazing together. And even though it came from Canada it came quickly, with in 10 days.

The Shawlette Pattern:

The Ottobre Shawlette begins as a basic granny triangle so it’s easy to start. You will turn at the end of each row. Beginning chains count as stitches unless otherwise stated in the pattern.

Block your Shawlette:

crochet shawlette

  1. Either allow your shawlette to soak for 30 mins or spritz it with water until damp.
  2. Lay it out on a large, flat, clean (hard to find, right?!) that you can stick pins into. I used the carpeted floor under the table.
  3. Smooth your shawlette out into shape.
  4. Pin along edges to keep in place-every couple of inches.
  5. Allow your beautiful shawlette to dry overnight.

Eccola! Wrap yourself in the gorgeous shawlette you crocheted or gift it to a friend!

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions about the Ottobre Shawlette.
