Shawl Crochet Pattern : Georgiana

Elegant and bold, my Georgiana lacy crochet shawl pattern is a quick and easy project.

Rectangular in shape, there’s no increasing or decreasing.  If you’ve crocheted a scarf, this crochet shawl is constructed similarly so you’ll have no problems.

The trellises are created by chaining and then working into the chains in the following row.

The blocks are crocheted in treble crochet (US double crochet) which are worked into chains from the previous row.

The pattern is very adaptable.  To make the shawl wider, increase the starting chain by multiples of 5.  For adding length, repeat rows.

Design Inspiration

The vibrant colour of the yarn was my inspiration for this crochet shawl.  I knew the stitch definition would be fabulous.

I wanted to crochet a shawl that would work for any season but with a nod towards Christmas decorations.  

The trellis brings to mind paper chains (which adorned the walls when I was a child) and to me, the blocks look like Christmas gifts!

The name Georgiana was inspired by two women of strength; Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire (an English socialite from the mid 1770’s – she was a political organiser, style icon, author, and activist); fictional Georgiana Lambe (Sanditon) who is bold and sassy … and not afraid to speak out about her beliefs.

How the pattern is worked

Multiples of 5 (+ 1 for beginning chain).

The shawl crochet pattern is worked in rows from the bottom to the top. 

I’ve chosen to use one colour as I feel it is more striking in a block of colour.

The first row is the foundation.  Rows 2 to 7 set the pattern for the blocks and trellis. 

3 repeats of the blocks and trellis are followed by 2 rows of double crochet (US single crochet) and 1 row of [dtr, ch1].

There are a total of 55 rows.

Yarn

The yarn I’ve used is from my stash.

It is a soft yarn that is 100% acrylic and machine washable at 30c. It is a lightweight DK yarn and I think perfect for all sorts of projects; blankets, cardigans, sweaters/jumpers, home decor and accessories.

This crochet shawl only uses 200g of DK.  Perfect if you’re on a budget.

Any DK yarn is suitable for this shawl.

Shawl Pattern Notes

  • Chain 1 does not count as a stitch
  • Chain 3 counts as a stitch
  • Chain 4 counts as a stitch
  • When working into the foundation/starting chain, be careful not to twist the chain
  • This pattern works into the chains of rows (not the chain spaces).  A looser tension makes it easier for your hook to go through
  • If your crochet curls or bunches after working the double treble (US treble) stitch row, don’t worry.  Blocking opens up all the stitches
  • Tension/gauge is not important to this project
