Boho-Chic Shawl Pattern Includes Pockets—And Is Easy Enough For Crochet Beginners :: WRAL.com

Have you tried your hand at crocheting? It’s a fun and creative hobby that requires few supplies – and it could even improve your sanity. With the summer season coming to an end, now is the perfect time to get started on a leisurely project.

In the Etsy shop KnotYourselfOut we found a simple crochet pattern that is ideal for this time of year: A boho-style scarf with pockets and fringes.

You read that right – it’s a scarf with pockets!

The stylish wrap looks like a complicated project but consists of just two basic stitches: the half double crochet and a version of the double crochet. These are two of the most common crochet stitches and they are easy to learn.

The pattern gives step-by-step instructions on how to make the stitches. From there, making this scarf is just a matter of working back and forth in rows.

The bags are crocheted separately and then attached to the finished shawl with a series of whip stitches.

For $ 6, you can get a PDF of the pattern that includes instructions and photos that provide clear instructions on how to sew the stitches and make the cool fringe that dangles from either end of the scarf.

The finished product measures 70 inches long (with the fringe) and 18.5 inches wide.

As for the yarn, the Etsy seller Sonja Hood recommends using a medium weight (level 4) yarn. For the cloth shown, she suggests the Heartland line by Lion Brand in the color Grand Canyon.

You will need four strands of yarn to complete this project. The pattern gives you recommendations for crochet hook size, but your choice of crochet hook may depend on how tight you want your stitches to be.

An Etsy reviewer, kcp8705 loved the pattern but gave a recommendation to other crocheters.

“Just a note, if your tension is more relaxed, I recommend decreasing a hook size. I reduced myself to 8mm (size L) and seemed just right and bought an additional ball of yarn. “

So, grab some yarn and a crochet hook and you’ve sewn this versatile shawl just in time for the chilly fall weather!
