Crochet Shawl For Mom: A Free Pattern For Mother’s Day (or any time you want to celebrate mama)

A few years ago I participated in a Mother’s Day crochet blog hop. More than one dozen designers came together to offer crochet patterns for mom. There were a wide array of different designs, including the free crochet shawl pattern that I chose to include. Since Mother’s Day is coming up again soon, I wanted to remind you about this terrific crochet shawl for mom. Make one for your mom, a mom friend who needs a wearable hug, or even for yourself. After all, moms are always superheroes and they’ve especially been so during the pandemic!

Rainbow Sprinkles Crescent Crochet Shawl

The Free Crochet Crescent Shawl Pattern is a perfect wrap for the warmer spring and summer months. Plus, the Rainbow Sprinkles Crescent Shawl pattern is a fun project to crochet. You’ll use two balls of the It’s a Wrap Rainbow Sprinkles yarn by Red Heart Yarn. The yarn does all of the work for you because of the rich color play. Therefore, you don’t have to use a lot of advanced crochet stitches to make this crochet shawl for mom.

Unique Shawl Shape

Of course, there are a lot of great crochet shawl patterns. And knit patterns, too, for you bicrafty folks. In fact, during a similar Mother’s Day blog hop of knit and crochet patterns for moms, I included a different pattern – my Tilted Blocks Knit Shawl Pattern. But one thing that makes this crochet shawl for mom special is the crescent shape. You use unique construction, crocheting the border first then working short rows along the border to build the body. It makes it really a fun piece to build

Ready to Make This Crochet Shawl for Mom?

This crochet shawl pattern is easy enough for beginner crocheters. And yet, experienced crocheters should still find it exciting. Although you can always substitute yarn if you know how, I recommend that you stitch to the It’s a Wrap Rainbow Sprinkles yarn to get the same wonderful look of this shawl. The color play is really what makes it stand out.

A Crochet Prayer Shawl Pattern

This free crochet crescent shawl pattern is also meditative enough to make a great crochet prayer shawl. You can stitch intentionally with a kind thought in mind for the person that you’re making that for. This will add another layer of special warmth to the piece, particularly if you’re crocheting it for Mother’s Day. Infuse it with your loving thoughts for the mom you’re gifting it to. She’ll feel that kindness, care, and prayer each time that she wraps it around herself. If you’d like, include your prayer, mantra, or thought on a card when you give this crochet shawl to her.
