I was inspired by the beautiful yarn colors, spring flowers, and warming weather! Now we have all these lace panels into one fresh and breezy garment you can wear through the changing seasons. The cotton bamboo yarn is unusually drapey and combined with these openwork patterns, it creates a light and lovely one size fits all crochet shawl!

The Wrap Up
And that’s the Garden Lace Shawl! I hope you like it! It was a lot of fun to design and make, working out all the stitch multiples and patterns so they would all work well together.
You’ll note that I didn’t add a border! You are welcome to add one if you like, but I really liked the look of the clean striped color changes without it. And the Cotton Bamboo is so drapey, a border won’t add much structure – so I went without! If you use a different fiber, you may wish to add a round or two of single crochet. Or add something unique to make it your own!
I can’t wait to see what you all make with this pattern!

Wow, Tamara! How pretty! Once again, here we have another sample of your talent! Thank you so much for sharing! I love it, it’s really garden-like and cheerful.
I’m tempted to crochet one for mys.elf and wait we have a breezy cool day here this summer! 😉 It’d be odd, anyways…. lol
Maybe next Autumn… Big hug from Spain!
Thank you so much Angelica! 😀 That made my morning!
Bravo, Tamara! Such a beautiful shawl, you’ve outdone yourself again 🙂
And I love the Moogly pin too!! I need to get me a shawl pin now!
How do you think this will work with worsted Caron simply soft (since I bought a bunch on sale :D)?
Thank you so much Neema! That shawl pin was a lovely gift from Laurinda at ReCrochetions, and I was so happy to find a project to show it off with! 😀
I think it would work really well with CSS, just use a hook size up or two to keep the lacy look!
I love the pattern. I hate Print Friendly versions that cannot be downloaded. This was great enough for me to go through the copy-paste-edit cycle, but still.
Hi Louise! I don’t know why it wasn’t downloadable for you – it should be, using the same green Print Friendly button as you’d use to create a printable. But I’m glad you like the pattern! 🙂
The garden lace shawl is absolutely beautiful. I can see it in a variety of fibres or even as a plain colour, bi colour, variegated or rainbow! The pattern really speaks for itself. It’d look stunning whatever I chose to crochet it with. Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous patterns x
Thank you so very much Wheely Bad! 😀
The different stitches make such pretty patterns. Thanks for sharing the pattern with us.
Thank you so much B!
The print friendly button is not working for me.
I’m sorry to hear that Nancy! Please open a second tab to PrintFriendly.com and insert the pattern url there. I’m afraid it’s an external service and I’m as much at it’s whims as anyone.
Saved it as a .pdf. From there I can copy paste the text to Word and print from there, avoiding all the lovely but ink-consuming photos, which I’ll still have in the pdf. I’ve just started crocheting again and a lovely shawl would be wonderful. Probably using a different fiber as I already have so many already on hand. Thank you for the pattern!
I’m so glad you found a way that works for you! I wish I could make it even easier, but alas, this is the best solution so far. Thank you so much Linda, I hope you enjoy making it!
thank you so much for this lovely pattern. As usual, I have great pleasure visiting your website and discovering wonderful new patterns each time.
I am actually planning to make this shawl as my next project. However, I will use a thinner yarn and hook, so would you know, by any chance, the multiple needed to make it longer ?
I thank you in advance for your reply.
Thank you so much Edwina! For this pattern each section was customized to work with the others (aka, playing with the stitches at each end of the rows). But the basic repeats for each section are as follows- CA: 6+1, CB: 4+1, CC: 4+1, CD: 3+1, and CE: 3+1. So to make it work overall, I believe you would need a multiple of 12, plus 1 (plus the tch).
Tamara! This is gorgeous! I’m going to have to try this for next summer. Thank you for this lovely pattern; it’s in my favorites & library so I can find it easily when ready to delve into the pattern 🙂
Thank you so very much Cathy!
I understand that rows 19 – 21 and to repeat rows 17-19. What row is 21?
Row 19 is row 17 and row 20 is 18. But row 21 is ?
How delightfully adorable!
Hi. Confused by this part:
Row 19 – 21: Repeat Rows 17-19.
How can I repeat row 19 when it’s not written?
Hi Deb! 🙂 I’ve updated the pattern to hopefully be clearer.
Really pretty shawl. The printer friendly button is not working. It takes me directly to my printer and shows all the side bars, ads and stuff. Just wanted to let you know.
This shawl is so pretty. I plan on making it soon. Your printer friendly button is broken. When I tried it took me directly to my printer window and showed all side bar stuff and ads.
oops double posted sorry
Thank you for letting me know Nancy – it seems to not play well with certain browsers. In that case, I always recommend opening a second tab to PrintFriendly.com and doing the printing there. 🙂
I absolutely love this shawl! I just found my next project. I can’t wait to start this.
Thank you so much, Cathy!
Lovely shawl – it was fun because you can add your own invention – I tried several different crochet stitches – melded with the others – even my husband loves the shawl – it is so happy – I added a few other colors and textures – especially at this time – it is a joy – great to smile – hope others try it – it is very flexible and forgiving – if one stitch does not work – just invent one! take care and be safe! Ada
Thanks so much for the pattern – a joy – leaves much room for individual additions – very forgiving – if one stitch does not work – substitute your own – colorful and happy – enjoyed very much! mary
I’m so glad to hear it, thank you Mary!
I think this pattern is so beautiful and I can’t wait to undertake it.
I’m actually curious about testing it out as a curtain but I’m still new enough to not know how to scale down a pattern. Have you tried anything like this and/or would you be willing to share any recommendations on doing so?
Oh, that would be lovely! This pattern uses Stitch Multiple (for the overall pattern): mult of 12, + 1, plus 1 for the tch (if not using fsc)
So, depending on the width you want, you would start with 13, 25, 37, fsc – any multiple of 12 (12 x ?), plus 1. The shawl as written is 59″ wide, and most curtains I’ve looked up are between 42″ and 52″ wide. So I would recommend starting with 145 fsc for Row 1. 🙂
Thank you so much! I can’t wait to give it a try!
