The Homebody Shawl

The Homebody Shawl is a super versatile pattern written to be worked with any weight of yarn. It uses a larger hook than your yarn calls for and the Linen/Moss Stitch to give it that perfectly comfortable drape to keep you cozy as it starts to cool or to just lounge around the house in, hence the name! I kept it simple to let my yarn really shine but it would look fantastic with some colorwork as well! Get creative and enjoy this Netflix binge-worthy pattern.

Gauge

Gauge is not important for this project as it is written to be worked with any type of yarn and to your desired length./width. I’ve included the gauge for the shawl in the photos for reference:

11 sts and 11 rows of the Moss/Linen Stitch is 4″ x 4″ (10x10cm)

Finished Measurements

Note: Finished measurements are of the shawl in the photos and using the materials listed. You can customize your shawl to any size you like.

82” (208cm) wide on the straight edge

44” (112cm) from beginning center to center point

Stitch Abbreviations

  • R – row/round
  • ch – chain
  • ch-sp – chain space
  • st(s) – stitch(es)
  • sk – skip
  • PM – place marker
  • sc – single crochet

Special Stitches

Moss/Linen Stitch – repeating *sc, ch 1* on the first row for an odd number of stitches, ch 2, turn, repeat * to * in subsequent rows placing all single crochets in the previous row’s chain spaces

Picot – [sc, ch 2 (or 3, see notes), sc] all in indicated stitch

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is written to be worked with any weight of yarn. I recommend using a hook size 1-2mm larger than your yarn calls for (mine is worked with an 8mm hook while the yarn called for a 6.5mm hook) to get a nice, drapey shawl.
  • In the stitch index for the picot stitch you have the option to ch 2 or 3. For the shawl in the photos made with Homespun yarn, I worked a ch 3 because it wasn’t prominent enough for my liking with the ch 2. If you’re using a lighter yarn or a yarn with more stitch definition, you will probably want to work a ch 2. If you’re unsure, try both and see which you like better! You may also substitute any version of the picot stitch if you’d prefer.
  • *   * indicates a repeat
  • (xx) at the end of a row/round indicates how many total stitches for that row/round
