Sapphire Love Shawl (Free Crochet Pattern + Video Tutorial)

Hello fellow crafters,

I'm pretty thrilled to share with you the pattern for my Sapphire Love Shawl, a beautiful triangle scarf that I crocheted for my mother last winter.  I think she looks amazing, especially with these vivid colors!

She is quite the natural model, wouldn't you agree?

The Sapphire Love Shawl is a quick, easy, and beginner-friendly pattern, and you can easily adjust the size to however large or small as you'd like!

Firstly, I have to tell you about the luxurious yarn that I used: LB Collection® Hand Dyed Silk Yarn.  It's ideal for elegant shawlettes, scarves, wristers, and other accessories that you wear against your skin. It’s a perfect splurge for a special occasion project or gift. (Or maybe a “just because” treat for yourself!)

I used 4 skeins of this gorgeous Sapphire color. Hence, my inspiration for the name of this shawl!

There are so many more beautiful shades available.  OpalTourmaline, and Amethyst are several of my favorites!

Each skein is 151 yards (138 meters).  With four skeins, my project measured 60 inches across.  This is a repetitive pattern so you can make the shawl as large or as small as you'd like.

The repetitive pattern is both fun and therapeutic to crochet, and after getting the hang of it (in about 3-4 rows), you'll be able to crochet this shawl on-the-go.

I also love that it can add a lovely pop of color to any outfit!  I typically wear neutral colors, so adding this beautiful blue is refreshing!  It also gives an outfit a very nice touch of texture as well.

It can also be worn around the shoulders as a wrap, or around the neck as a scarf.

I do have to say -- this one, which is 60 inches across, looks a little too big as a scarf on me!  (If I make one for myself to wear, I'd make it smaller.)

The Sapphire Love Shawl is a beautiful triangle shawl that can be worn as a wrap around the shoulders, or around the neck as a scarf.  It adds a nice pop of color or texture to any outfit.  It's also a relatively quick project, and it's super easy to make as well!  The size can easily be adjusted to be however large or small as you'd like.  Depending on the type of yarn that you use, the Sapphire Love Shawl can be suitable as a light and airy shawl for the Spring or Summer seasons, or it can be dense and warmer for the Fall and Winter seasons.  It makes for a perfect gift for a family member, friend, loved one, or more!

Note: If you get stuck, a video tutorial is available on the Sweet Softies Youtube Channel.  

Finished Measurement: 
  • 60 inches across 
  • Note: The size of this pattern is easily adjustable! Simply add or decrease rows.

  • Beginner. Requires familiarity with stitches used (below).

Stitches/Terms Used (US Terminology):
  • MR: magic ring (a.k.a. magic circle, magic loop)
  • Ch: chain
  • Hdc: half double crochet 
  • Hdc-inc: half double crochet increase (two hdc in same stitch)





Below is the video tutorial for this pattern.


Notes: (1) This pattern is worked in rows, turning after each row is complete.
(2) The starting chains ("ch 3") counts as one hdc and one ch. It is referred to as a "ch-3 space" in this pattern.

R1: In a magic ring: ch 3, hdc-inc, ch 2, hdc-inc, ch 1, hdc. Turn.

R2: Ch 3. In ch-1 space: hdc-inc, ch. In ch-2 space: hdc-inc, ch 2, hdc-inc, ch. In ch-3 space: hdc-inc, ch, hdc in 3rd ch from previous row*. Turn.
*You might need to scoot your hdc-inc in the ch-3 space over in order to see the 3rd ch from the previous row. 

R3: Ch 3. (In ch-1 space: hdc-inc, ch) x 2. In ch-2 space, hdc-inc, ch 2, hdc-inc, ch. In ch-1 space, hdc-inc, ch. In ch-3 space: hdc-inc, ch, hdc in 3rd ch from previous row. Turn.

R4: Ch 3. (In ch-1 space, hdc-inc, ch) x 3. In ch-2 space, hdc-inc, ch 2, hdc-inc, ch. (In ch-1 space, hdc-inc, ch) x 2. In ch-3 space: hdc-inc, ch, hdc in 3rd ch from previous row. Turn.

R5 and onwards: Continue with this pattern until your shawl is 60" across, or at the desired length.  Remember to "ch 3" at the beginning of each row. The ch-1 spaces should all have "hdc-inc", followed by a "ch". Every ch-2 space (which is going down the middle of the shawl) will have "hdc-inc, ch 2, hdc-inc", then followed by a "ch".  Each row ends with "hdc-inc, ch, hdc in 3rd ch from previous row" in the ch-3 space.  Turn after each row.

When you are done, fasten off and weave in the ends!

For reference, I used 4 skeins of LB Collection® Hand Dyed Silk Yarn. (Each skein = 155 yards)
1 skein = 28" across

2 skeins = 46" across

3 skeins = 55" across

4 skeins = 60" across with yarn left over to make tassels if desired.


    Optional: Add three tassels to the shawl, one for each corner.

    1. Cut long strands of yarn that are a little more than DOUBLE (2x) your desired length of tassels.  I made three bundles (one for each tassel), each bundle consisting of 6 long strands of yarn.

    2. Take one bundle and loop it into one corner of the shawl.

    3. Cut another long strand of yarn and tie the head of the tassel, close to where the corner is.

    4. Trim the ends of the tassel with a pair of scissors for a tidy look.

    5. Repeat two more times for the other two corners of the shawl.

        That's it, you're done! 

        Congratulations on finishing your beautiful shawl!
