Crochet Shawlette Pattern | Ottobre Shawlette Crochet Pattern

The Ottobre Shawlette is a light and lacy crochet shawl pattern. This small shawl features cotton yarn an a mix of beautiful stitches for a truly unique crochet shawlette.

The Ottobre styles beautifully as a triangle scarf, or small summer shawl. Combine colors to create a modern palette of your favorites.

Crochet shawls are so popular to gift. 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. 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.

Materials:

400g/14oz, 1224m/1340 yds of dk weight #3 light cotton yarn, I used Berroco Modern Cotton DK,* 1 skein each of: Chepstow (brown), Point Judith (pink), Elms (green) and Hope (blue).

3.75mm US Size F/5 crochet hook,* or hook needed to meet gauge

Notes

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.

Finished Shawlette Dimensions:

27″ down the spine to the tip & 55″ across the top of the wingspan.

This shawlette can easily be enlarged but requires more yarn: 1-2 more hanks of the suggested yarn should make it a full size shawl.

Gauge:

1″/2.5 cm x 1″/2.5cm = 5 dc x 3 rows of dc

Crochet shawlette in browns, blues, greens and pink.

Special Stitches:

Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC): insert your hook in from the front around the post of the stitch, back to the front and then work a double crochet.

Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC): made the same way you make the FPDC, but instead of inserting your hook in from the front around the post of the stitch you insert your hook from the back around the post and form a double crochet.

Cluster Stitch: The double crochet cluster starts like a dc3tog, but then you chain 2 to make up for the decreasing. See the full tutorial here.

Fan Stitch: chain the specified amount, skip the specified amount of stitches, into the stitch to be worked place 12 long double crochet stitches.

Long Double Crochet (ldc): yarn over, insert hook into stitch to be worked, pull up a loop-pull the loop taller than normal, then yarn over and pull through two loops, yarn over again and pull through last two to complete stitch.

Treble Crochet Stitch (trc): yarn over twice, insert your hook into stitch to be worked, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over & pull through two loops, yarn over & pull through two, yarn over and pull through last two loops on hook.

V-stitch: double crochet, chain 1, double crochet in same stitch

        Block your Shawlette:Block 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.
        6. Eccola! Wrap yourself in the gorgeous shawlette you crocheted or gift it to a friend!

Do you have an idea of how many yards this actually requires? I have a 1,000 yd. cake that I would like to use, but don't know if the yardage would be enough.

Tuesday 15th of May 2018

Hi Donna, thanks for asking. The Berroco hanks are 353 yds each, which is 1340 yds total. I used almost all of each of them, but one-I was able to make a hat and a little toddler bolero with the rest of that one. Also I know someone used a a cake yarn that was less than 700 yds and it turned out a little short but still worked, she just left off the last rows. So I think 1,000 will be enough! Good luck, I’d love to see it if you want share when you’re done!

This is beautiful! Wondering what your thoughts on sewing the two long edges together to create a poncho. Would that work? Or would the proportions be off?

Christa18

Sunday 13th of May 2018

Hi Diane! That’s a great question. I think it’s too small as is for a poncho, but if you made it larger then that could work. I like that idea!
