Victoria Shawl Crochet Pattern
This pattern was first released in 2018. I had just received a few cakes of Lion Brand Yarn ” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>Lion Brand Mandala yarn and really wanted to use the stitch pattern used in my other Victoria patterns to create something new. The Victoria Shawl came together easily. The simple stitch pattern, the fun way the long color changes happen in this self-striping yarn, and the fun tassels on each corner made this a favorite of mine.
Although I LOVE the way it looks using Lion Brand Mandala“>Mandala, I had a few hanks of Hawthorne Kettle Dye in the color Contessa left over from the Contessa Pullover and wanted to see what this design would look like in a lighter weight.
The yarn shown below is Lion Brand Yarn ” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>Mandala yarn in the color Centaur. It is available on both the Lion Brand Yarn ” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>Lion Brand Yarn and Lion Brand Mandala“>WeCrochet websites.
Once again, a HUGE shoutout to my friends over at WeCrochet for providing the yarn to make the Victoria Shawl crochet pattern!
For this design I used Hawthorne Kettle Dye yarn in the color Contessa. This yarn is available at WeCrochet and comes in Kettle Dye (20 colorways), Multi (30 colorways), Speckle (15 colorways), Tonal (12 colorways), and Bare options. Using this yarn was an easy choice. Picking just one color? Almost impossible.

SPECIAL PATTERN NOTES
The Victoria Shawl is worked from the bottom point up. This means that any weight yarn can be used successfully. Just start with Row 1 and continue until your Shawl measurement is in line with the final wingspan found on the chart on Page 1. Use a hook size that is 2 sizes larger than what is recommended on the Yarn Sleeve.
Ch3 counts as a dc throughout.
