Grandma’s German Shells Shawl

Grandma’s German Shells Shawl

This pattern is available on my Etsy or Ravelry shop.

Lacy arches and structured blocks. This lovely shawl sure is an eye catcher. Plus it looks more difficult than it is! Impress your non crochet friends by whipping up one of these beauties!

You can use any worsted weight yarn you like for this pattern. You’ll need about 1700 yards of it. I used 3.5 ( three and a half) skeins of this Red Heart Super Saver Ombre for the shawl I filmed. (YouTube channel) tutorial now available! The off white shawl I used a red heart super saver in the color Aran.

You will need a G 4.25mm crochet hook, a pair of scissors, and a yarn needle.

If you would like to try a lighter yarn and smaller hook you”ll just need more yardage and do the repeats more too.

My shawl measures about 93 inches across the straight edge and 49 inches from the center to the point. I found this size to be just right and so cozy. You can of corse continue with the repeats and make the shawl any size your want.

I could see this shawl in so many colors! Feel free to tag me on Instagram if you make this shawl.

  1. Hello,
    I’m Pilar, from Chile. I loved this shawl … I want to do it.
    Do you have the pattern in the drawing? Where can I get it?
    From the youtube tutorial it is not easy for me because I am not always connected.
    Thank you! Congratulations for the beautiful job!

  2. I have paid for this pattern on Etsy and no matter what I do I can’t download the pattern. Can you tell me how to get the link to work. I am wanting to make this shawl for a nursing home resident who has no family and would really like to receive my copy of the pattern. The purchase number is 147788246.

    1. Hello Karen, Please message me where you purchased the pattern. If you have already done this thank you.
