I am all for coming together and as crocheters and encouraging each other, while also USING UP OUR STASHES! I created a crochet shawl along that can be joined at any point in time – I’d love to see you on the inside. You will get to choose from 6 free shawl crochet patterns!
Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links.
I ran this event awhile ago because I really felt a need in the crochet community for more encouragement and interaction.
It was so much fun, that I decided to turn it into something you can join at ANY time!
You’ll be able to join a private crochet community, use up your stash, and best of all, make a new stylish shawl for yourself!
With that in mind, let’s talk details!
Is it Free?
YES! This crochet shawl-along is completely free. There are no fees to join. However, there IS the option to upgrade to a PDF pattern. This is not required, but may be a good option if it works for you. There will be no pressure to buy any patterns, as you can always work from the free versions on my blog!
Is this Shawl-Along the same as a crochet-along?
It is similar, but different in that you can join at any time. For most crochet-alongs, though, sections of the pattern are released slowly over the course of a few weeks.
However, this shawl-along is obviously way more relaxed. You’ll be able to choose from the already existing shawl patterns on my blog! No timeline, no rush. You’ll be able to work at your own pace and share your progress in the group!
Speaking of the group, let me tell you about what I’m most excited about! I’ve created a special Facebook group JUST for this shawl-along.
Only those participating will be able to join. A lot of people have already finished a shawl or even two, but if you’re just joining, we would still love to see your shawl! Hop on over there now:
Share with the Hashtag #dbcshawlalong
If you’re participating, be sure to share on Instagram with the hashtag #dbcshawlalong! (In case anyone is unclear, dbc stands for Desert Blossom Crafts). If you share your photos with this hashtag, there’s a good chance I will give you a shout-out either on my story or feed!
Shawl Patterns to Choose From
Now that we’ve covered the details, let’s get you started on choosing your shawl! I’ll make sure you know 1) where to get the pattern, and 2) what weight yarn you’ll need! These 6 shawls use a range from worsted, all the way down to lace!
One of the most popular patterns on my blog! The pattern calls for 1 cake of Lion Brand Mandala yarn, or you could substitute with another DK (weight #3 yarn!)

My newest crochet pattern, and definitely a favorite of mine! This pattern calls for 1 skein of Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball Yarn.
This shawl features a super fun shell stitch and is worked from the tip up, rather than on the bias. It uses 1 ball of We Crochet Stroll Gradient, or any other fingering weight yarn!
This pattern is super easy, and is the perfect Netflix crochet project! 😉 The pattern calls for sport weight yarn.
This shawl features the classic granny square along with some modern lace! It calls Red Heart super saver yarn, or any worsted weight yarn! I know we all have some of that in our stash. 😉
Next up, a big and beautiful rectangle shawl! The Eva Shawl uses a bulky weight yarn and is super easy to make.
7/ Dragonfly Shawl
The Dragonfly shawl is another triangle pattern that features Bernat Pop! Yarn. The pretty lace stitch down the center looks like a dragonfly, making it extra unique!
Last but not least, the Twist in Time Shawl! This one is made from lace weight yarn, making it much lighter. I will warn you though, there is no free version available. The only way you can make this shawl is through the PDF on ETSY HERE.
