Ana Chunky Crochet Pocket Shawl Pattern a Free Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Ana Crochet Pocket Shawl Pattern pairs simplicity with a pop! The bobble like, pineapple stitch creates an eye catching pocket and center detail.

This pocket shawl crochets up quickly in chunky weight yarn. Which means, you can make it and wear it this season!

I love a good puff stitch, but they can be yarn eaters. To keep the yarn usage under wraps, I opted for a 4 row repeat featuring those luscious pineapple puff stitches.

And to balance out the simplicity I went all in on the pineapple stitches for the pockets of this shawl. I love how bobblicious they are in the bulky weight yarn.

Previously I’ve featured the pineapple stitch in the Ambra Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern. These beauties standout in the otherwise simple granny stitch scarf pattern.

While not a pineapple stitch, I do love this Leaning Puff Stitch Scarf from Crochet ‘n’ Create. It’s so pretty and features those puffs beautifully!

Those pockets are extra cozy and warm. I love the pineapple stitch on these pockets.

The rows of pineapple stitches and extended half double crochet come together quickly too.

Materials

  • 635-762 yds/581-697m of #5 bulky weight yarn, pictured in Lion’s Pride Woolspun (discontinued); Color Made Easy is a suitable substitute and they even have a similar purple color called Ultra Violet.
  • For reference, modeled pictures show a 5′ 2″ woman wearing a 48″ long shawl made with 635 yds (including pockets) of #5 bulky weight yarn.
  • 7mm crochet hook, or hook needed to meet gauge
  • yarn needle, scissors, measuring tape

For a limited time this yarn is back in stock! Get Woolspun from Lion Brand* while you can. It’s a squishy favorite.

Notes

  1. Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  2. Stitch multiple is 5, plus 10 and if you’re using a chain start (and not foundation stitches) you need 1 more. 
  3. Take your wingspan measurement before you begin. See details on Fit/Adjustments. 

Level

Intermediate

Gauge

4″/10cm x 4”/10cm = 9 ehdc x 5.5 rows of ehdc

Finished Dimensions

48” long when laid flat x 13” wide

Construction

This pocket shawl is worked sideways, as a rectangle. The pockets are crocheted separately and sewn on.

Your starting chain is your width. The number of rows you crochet will be your length.

Fit/Adjustment

To make a different width shawl, start with a different number of foundation stitches, see stitch multiple on Notes.

To make your shawl longer, repeat as many center rows as needed. The length of your shawl when adding pockets should match up with the length of your arms. 

To take measurements for your pocket shawl, hold your arms spread wide apart. Have someone else (if you can) measure from fingertip to fingertip. That’s how long you will want yours to be.

For reference, modeled pictures show a 5′ 2″ woman wearing a 48″ long shawl. I find patch pockets most comfortable about where my pants pockets are located-at about hip height.

Remember when adjusting that changes will also effect the amount of yarn needed so plan accordingly.

Special Stitch

Ps-Pineapple Cluster Stitch: Yo, insert hook into st, *{yo and pull up a loop}, in same stitch, rep from * 3 more times, yo and pull through 8 loops, yo and pull through 2 loops left on hook.

Tools

  • yarn needle
  • scissors
  • measuring tape

Instructions

Start

    1. Fhdc 29 or Ch 30 and hdc in the 2nd ch from your hook and in each ch across, turn. (29 sts)
    2. Ch 1, ehdc in same st and each st across, turn. (29 sts)
    3. Rep last row until you have 18 rows or 13“/33cm. Most of this section will be covered with the pocket.

Center

    1. (WS) Ch 1, ehdc in same st and next 3 sts, Ps in next st, *{ehdc in next 4 sts, Ps in next st} rep from * across, ehdc in last 4 sts, turn.
    2. Ch 1, ehdc in same st and each st across, turn. (29 sts)
    3. Rep last row.
    4. Rep last row.

    If lengthening your shawl, I would recommend adding more rows of this 4 row repeat. These 4 rows add about 3.5”/9cm to the shawl. The final rows (59-73) of the shawl add about 11.”

End

  1. Ch 1, ehdc in same st and each st across, turn.
  2. Rep last row over the last 14 rows. (to match your first section

Finished pocket is 9”/23cm x 9”/23cm.
If you want to change your pocket width, keep the stitch count an odd #.

  1. Fhdc 19 of Ch 20 and hdc in the 2nd ch from your hook and in each ch across, turn. (19 sts)
  2. Ch 1, hdc in same st, *{Ps in next st, hdc in next st} rep from * across, turn.
  3. Ch 1, hdc in same st and in each st across, turn. (19 sts)
  4. Rep Rows 2-3. If you want to change the length of your pocket, be sure to end with a Row 3.
    Cut yarn and leave a long tail for seaming.

Finishing

  1. Pin your pockets to the bottoms of the shawl. I placed the bottom of my pocket 3 rows (about 2”/5cm) up from the bottom edge of my shawl.
  2. Check your placement by trying on your shawl.
  3. Use tail, or matching yarn, and needle to sew the sides and bottom of pocket to shawl.
  4. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
  5. Rep for 2nd pocket.
