This free crochet pattern is for a pocket shawl with a detachable hoodie. This pattern is made using the suzette stitch and Feels Like Butta yarn from Lion Brand and includes a video tutorial for the stitch.
As soon as I saw the first picture of a pocket shawl trending on Facebook in 2020, I knew I wanted to make one. I’m usually not one to jump on a bandwagon to create a version of trending pattern style. But I loved the idea so much, that I knew I wanted to design one as well. Although I’m months behind the trend, I believe a beautiful pocket shawl can always be used and make you feel pretty.
In fact, one of the things I thought was missing from the original trending pattern was a hoodie. Specifically, a detachable hoodie that you can attach or remove depending on your mood, style, or weather.
Crocheting Pocket Shawls
Pocket shawls are simply very long rectangles and much wider than a normal scarf. You can make the rectangle extra long and fold over the ends to create pockets. Or you can sew them on as small squares as I did.
Either way, the pocket shawl comes to life because of the shawl hanging over your shoulders to keep you warm while your hands are in the pockets to keep the shawl in place and also keep your hands warm. The hoodie, on the other end, is a special touch of style that also keeps you warm in case it gets colder than you expected.
Best Yarn for Pocket Shawl Crochet Patterns
Well, that all depends on what you prefer. I like using really soft and sturdy yarn that can keep me warm but also can last a long time and won’t stretch too much. So I thought the Lion Brand yarn “Feels Like Butta” was the perfect yarn for this beautiful pocket shawl. If you prefer subbing the yarn you can easily use any wool, acrylic, and even cotton yarn for this project. Just make sure it’s worsted weighted yarn.
So, let me now give you the supplies you need in order to crochet this stunning pocket shawl pattern.
