Introducing a NEW pocket shawl project with an Irish flair – the Celtic Pocket Shawl. This design features 3 Celtic Knots of the same design, just different sizes – one large on the back center and two smaller on the pockets.
Several years ago I discovered a beautiful hand-dyed superwash merino wool yarn called, Cadence, by Hazel Knits. At the time I crocheted 2 scarves using an orange, red and yellow but I had wanted to crochet something in one of their wonderful blue color tones.
So, I decided to pick Sapphire (darker blue) and Chicory (light blue) for this new Pocket Shawl design.
You can use another kind of yarn – Size 3/DK weight yarn would work best if you want it to come out close to the size/dimensions of mine and you would need about 1400 total yards. (All of this information is included in the pattern)
All stitches in this shawl are simple – you mainly need to know how to single crochet and double crochet. There are a few other stitches that are explained in detail in the instructions. The fringe is optional and easy to add on.
Don’t worry about weaving the Celtic Knots – I include diagrams for each of the sizes that guide you along each curve and over & under so your knots turn out great! Plus, there are several color photos in the pattern to help you understand these steps.
**UPDATE: And now there is a video tutorial to go with this project – you can watch it below or on our Youtube Channel. This video tutorial shows you some stitches, how to prepare the diagrams, how to weave the knots and how to add the fringe**
