Dragon Wing Crochet Shawl – a half circle shawl utilizing the Jacob’s ladder stitch

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

The Dragon Wing Shawl is part of my Dragon Wing crochet and knit pattern set which features textured detail using the Jacob’s ladder stitch. There are 6 triangular wedges between 7 looped spines all creating a half circle shawl. There are tips in the notes for making it more than a half circle and for changing the size or gauge. The pattern is a 7 row repeat utilizing stitch markers, so it is easy to take with you in your project bag.

Dragon Wing Crochet Shawl free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home - 5

Size:
51″ x 19″

Yarn:
Red Heart It’s a Wrap, 50% cotton / 50% acrylic, 1100 yds / 200 g; Romance 9274: 1 skein

Hook:
US-E/4, 3.5mm

Gauge:
20 sts x 25 rows = 4” [10 cm] in pattern

Other supplies:
6 removable stitch markers
yarn needle

Stitches and Abbreviations:
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
sp(s) – space(s)
st(s) – stitch(es)

Getting Started:
Gauge swatch
Row 1: Ch 32, turn, (sc, ch 2, sc) in second ch from hook, * skip 2, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next ch, repeat from * to end.
Rows 2~ 20: Turn, do not chain, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-2 sp across.
Measure within swatch to check gauge. This is not a fitted item, so it is not critical to get exact gauge, but any variations will change the finished measurements.

To make the shawl more than half a circle, add on more wedges. For each wedge added, increase the starting chain by one, then increase the repeats in each row by 1. Keep in mind this means each row will take more yarn.

If using a different yarn weight or gauge, just change the row repeats to suit your size preference. Be sure to end the shawl with a repeat of row 18, then move on to the border rows.

Stitch counts at the end of the rows do NOT count chains.
