Birthday Cake Crochet Shawl Pattern:

  • Multiple of 4+1.
  • Chain 73
  • Row 1: Work 3 dc in the 5th ch from the hook. *Skip 3 chains, then work a sc into the next chain.  Chain 3, then work 3 dc into the same chain.  Repeat from * across until 4 chains are left.  Skip 3 chains, then work a dc into the last chain.
  • Row 2: Chain 4 and turn.  Work 3 dc into the first chain from the turning chain that you just worked.  *Work a single crochet into the first ch 3 space from the previous row, chain 3, then work 3 dc into the same space.  Repeat from * into each ch 3 space across, then work a sc into the topmost chain of the turning chain at the end of the row.
  • Repeat row 2 until your shawl is as long as you like.  I worked the one shown until it was about 44 inches long.

Finishing & Assembly:

  • Weave in any ends and your scarf is ready to wear!
