Gems of Hope crochet lace shawl -- new free pattern!

In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I’m releasing Gems of Hope, a free crochet shawl pattern.

This shawl is dedicated to anyone who has directly or indirectly been hurt by domestic abuse. Gemstone and crown motifs remind the recipient that she or he is more precious than diamonds. Almond blossoms, an ancient symbol of hope, represent the process of healing and renewal.

This rectangular shawl can be sized up or down and worked in any weight of yarn. As written, mine worked up and blocked out to 65”x21”.

  • Yarn: 930 yd sport weight yarn in a fiber which will block well
  • Hook: H hook, or size needed for your desired gauge
This pattern uses US crochet terms.

This is beautiful! Thank you for sharing it!

Do you think this pattern is easy enough for a beginner or relative novice to attempt?

It’s closer to intermediate. I use several different stitches and some charts that can be a little complicated to learn.

A very beautiful shawl and a powerful symbol of hope. Thanks.
