Why Crochet a Shawl or Wrap?

If you’re looking for a smaller crochet project to whip up, you may want to consider crocheting a shawl or wrap. They make the perfect project to challenge your skills and practice different crochet stitch combinations. 

From lightweight, airy, and lacy shawls, to chunky and warm wraps, they make the perfect accessory or gift for any season! 

What’s the Difference Between a Shawl and a Wrap?

A shawl is a piece of fabric that is worn over the shoulders or wrapped around the body and is worn to add accent to an outfit, cover bare shoulders when worn formally, for religious purposes, or to keep warm. 

Shawls are commonly rectangular or triangular in shape. They may be little, lightweight triangles wrapped around the neck in summer or more substantial bully rectangles to keep you warm, or anything in between. 

A wrap is a more general term and is used to define any loose garment worn on top of clothes or wrapped around the upper body. It is a word that covers shawls, scarves, and stoles. All shawls can be considered wraps, but not all wraps are necessarily shawls.

Types of Crochet Shawls or Wraps

There are several types of crochet shawls to choose from. Here are a few types based on their shape and/or purpose.

Crochet Triangle Shawl

When thinking about crocheted shawls, the triangular shawl usually comes to mind first. You’ll be amazed at how many different ways there are to crochet this type of shawl! 

One great thing about this type of shawl is that it is very versatile and that it’s easy to customize the size depending on your preference. 

Crochet Rectangle Shawl

Rectangular shawls can be crafted into any size you want, from scarf-sized to big warm blankets. Rectangular shawls are typically worked from one short side across the length of the shawl, but they can also be worked from a long side until they are as wide as you like. 

Rectangular shawls also make great projects to showcase special skeins of yarn.

Crochet Circle Shawl

Circle crochet shawls are perfect ways to show off beautiful stitchwork because they are constructed from the center out. Circular shawls are typically made with lacy patterns similar to doilies. They can also be covered with texture and color like a mandala that you can wear. 

They are typically worn folded in half and wrapped around the body.

Lace Crochet Shawl

Lace shawls are lightweight and airy garments that are best worn in the summer when you need a little extra layer so that your shoulders are neither too warm nor too chilly. 

These types of shawls are also great for practicing and showcasing different stitch combinations and intricate craftsmanship.

Asymmetrical Crochet Shawl 

Asymmetrical shawls are typically shaped as scalene triangles wherein no sides have the same length. The advantage of crocheting this type of shape is that it makes the shawl easier to tie around the body. It also hugs the shoulders better.

Pocket Shawl

A pocket shawl is a rectangular wrap with pockets on each end and is great for practical use in storing small objects on the go. It will not only keep your shoulders warm, but also your hands as well by placing them in the pockets! 

These projects are much wider than pocket scarves so that they can fully cover your shoulders or upper body. 

Prayer Shawl

Prayer shawls are crafted with the recipient in mind. The individual crafting the piece holds the wearer in their thoughts throughout the entire process of creating the shawl. 

Prayer shawls are usually made so that whenever the recipient wears the shawl, they hold a tangible reminder of the thoughts and prayers intended for them. It serves as a healing item for both the crafter and wearer.

Mobius Shawl

Similar to an infinity scarf, the mobius shawl is constructed as one continuous piece in the round and is worn as a twisted loop around the upper body. No need to tie any ends with this type of shawl, just let it sit snugly around your shoulders!

Supplies Needed to Crochet a Shawl or Wrap

Choosing the Perfect Yarn to Crochet a Shawl 

When choosing the perfect type of yarn for your crochet shawl, it’s best to keep in mind the type of shawl you are going to make. A lacy lightweight shawl for decorative purposes? Or perhaps a warm chunky wrap to keep you warm on cold nights?

Most lacy shawl patterns would call for super fine (1) or sport weight (2) yarn while warmer and chunkier shawls would call for (4) Worsted to bulky yarn weight (5). DK (3) is also a great choice for a shawl that isn’t too warm for spring and summer wear.

Here are a few great yarn options based on their weights:

(1) Super fine 

(2) Fine 

(3) DK

(4) Worsted

(5) Bulky

How Many Skeins of Yarn Do You Need to Crochet a Shawl? 

On average, most crochet shawls use about 3-4 skeins of yarn, depending on the yarn weight, stitches used and size of the finished shawl. 

Small shawls in lighter weight yarn will take more yardage than bulky knit wraps, but their skeins also tend to be longer.

Make sure to check the pattern you plan on using to ensure you have enough yarn to finish your shawl. 

Crochet Hook for Crocheting a Shawl

It is usually indicated in the pattern which crochet hook you would need to use for the project. If you can’t find it stated in the pattern itself, you may check the label or the yarn you're using for the recommended hook size that works best with your desired choice of yarn.

In general shawls will be worked with a hook that corresponds to the size of the yarn. One exception might be in a lacy pattern that uses thinner yarn with a bigger needle to accentuate the decorative holes. 

Notions and Tools Needed to Crochet a Shawl

The basic tools and notions you’ll need to crochet a shawl are yarn, the corresponding crochet hook for your yarn, scissors, and a yarn needle to weave in the ends.

You may also find it helpful to have a tape measure to keep track of your progress. Stitch markers can be useful to mark the ends of rows or to help you know which rows you need to make increases or decreases on if your shawl isn’t rectangular. 

Blocking Tools

Blocking is the process of using water to relax the fiber and shape your crochet piece into your desired shape and give it a more professional finish. 

There are various ways to block – including wet blocking, steam blocking, and spray blocking. For all methods you will need some kind of blocking mats and pins

If you use wet blocking, you can use your sink or a basin to wash your shawl before blocking. For steam and spray blocking you pin the shawl to your blocking boards first, then dampen the project either with the steam from an iron or using a spray bottle. 

Whichever method you use, make sure your shawl is completely dry before unpinning. 

Best Crochet Stitches for Shawls  

Single Crochet Stitch 

Single crochet (sc) is a basic stitch that every crocheter should know. It creates a close dense fabric. It’s great for prayer shawls, pocket shawls, and anything else you want to make to keep you warm.

Double Crochet Stitch 

The double crochet (dc) is another basic stitch, twice as tall as a single crochet, that also creates a rather close, dense fabric. This is a great stitch to use to crochet a basic scarf or shawl as it works up fast and easily.

Half Double Crochet Stitch

Half double crochet (hdc) works up between a single and double crochet in height. It’s great for when you want the warmth of single crochet but a little more drape in the fabric.

Crochet Moss Stitch

The moss stitch is made using a combination of chains and single crochets. This stitch creates great texture and flowy fabric, making it perfect for shawls and other draping projects.

Shell Stitch

One of the most unique crochet stitches is the shell stitch. It’s such a pretty design that looks like a shell or a fan. It’s pretty easy to make, too!

Tips for Crocheting Shawls and Wraps

Think About What Sort of Drape You Want and Choose the Appropriate Yarn

Drape has to do with how a piece of crochet hangs. Some crochet is stiff, like single crochet worked with a smaller hook than the yarn weight needs. Other crochet projects easily skim over your body. 

Drape is somewhat a function of the kind of yarn you choose, both in terms of fiber and weight. Heavier weight yarns tend to have less drape than finer yarns. Acrylic and cotton yarns tend not to drape as well as wool, silk or bamboo.

You can get a little more drape, regardless of the fiber you use, by working with a hook a size larger than the yarn or the pattern recommends. This will change the size of your finished project and require more yarn, but for a shawl, it shouldn’t make much difference.

Block Your Finished Shawl or Wrap for A Polished, Professional Look

Everyone crochets with different tension, so your finished project will not always turn out perfectly shaped like how it’s shown in the pattern’s picture. Your stitches might not look as even and your edges might be wavier than you’d like.

Blocking your finished project will help you shape your shawl how you want it to be. There are several ways to block your work namely: wet blocking, spray blocking, or steam blocking. Whichever method you choose, make sure your project is pinned to shape and allow it to dry completely before unpinning.

Read the Pattern From Start to Finish Before Your Start Your Crochet Shawl

It’s good practice to read and review the pattern you plan on using first in order to see whether there are any unfamiliar stitches or techniques in the pattern. 

You might get stuck later on if you dive right into crocheting right away if you’re a beginner.

Use a Row Counter to Keep Track of Your Stitches

Shawls are medium-sized projects; bigger than small dishcloths but smaller than your average blanket. That being said, some patterns call for repeating rows or increases that happen every certain number of rows. It may be difficult sometimes to keep track of your stitches and what row you’re currently on. 

The use of a row counter may help in keeping you more organized and on track as you go along crocheting your shawl.

Crochet Shawls Patterns FAQs

Are Crochet Shawls Easy to Crochet?

There are beginner-friendly crochet shawls as there are also more immediate and advanced designs. Most crochet shawls are made with basic crochet stitches that are very easy to learn even if you’re new to crochet.

Shawls often repeat a stitch pattern across the width of the shawl, which helps you to learn new stitches and makes it pretty easy once you get the hang of the technique. 

How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Shawl or Wrap for Beginners?

The time it would take to crochet a shawl or wrap for beginners would depend on the size and difficulty of the pattern, as well as the skill level of the one making it. For beginners, it would take around 3-8 hours to complete.

Just like any other crochet project, the weight of the yarn you will be using also contributes to how long it’ll take to crochet your shawl. Using bulky or worsted weight yarn will work up quicker compared to fingering, DK, or lace weight yarn.

How Do I Wash My Handmade Crochet Shawl or Wrap?

After crocheting your handmade crochet shawl or wrap, you wouldn’t want to ruin the fabric when it’s time to have it washed. That’s why it’s important to hand wash your crocheted garment with care in order to not stretch out the fabric. 

If your yarn is machine washable, you can make your swatch and throw it in the washing machine and see how it looks. But it is a much better idea to hand wash your shawls with wool wash or mild detergent. 

Shawls should always lay flat to dry regardless of how they are washed. 

How Do I Wear a Shawl or Wrap?

A shawl or wrap is usually worn around the upper body by draping it over the person’s back while covering the shoulders of the wearer. 

For extra snugness, you may also tie the ends of the shawl/wrap together to secure it in place.

Very small triangular shawls may just wrap around the neck like a kerchief, and prayer shawls and pocket shawls often drape over the shoulders and hang down in the front. 

Play around with your shawl once it’s finished to determine how you’d like to wear it.
