I absolutely love designing shawls recently as I love gifting them to the people I truly care about. This shawl is named after my husband’s aunt and she chose these beautiful autumn colored whirl too.

Enjoy my newest design, which is super easy and quick to make!

I hope you’ll find it as beautiful as me.

Before you start, I also made a stitch count chart for each row to keep your work tracked easily. Download it here:

Difficulty: Beginner

Size: 29.5” long/ 62” wide (75 cm long/158 cm wide)

Materials needed:

  • 3.5 mm (E) size hook
  • 1 Scheepjes Whirl or approximately 1093 yards/1000 meters of fingering weight yarn
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers (optional)
  • NOTE: when you finish the shawl it might need some blocking to make the pattern show off

Stitches Used and Abbreviations:

MR = magic ring

CH = chain

SK = skip

ST/STS= stitch/ stitches

SC = single crochet

DC = double crochet

FPDC = front post double crochet

BPDC = back post double crochet

*-* =repeat pattern between these symbols (This is only used for a full repeat, may contain smaller repeats)

{} =indicates how many stitches go into the same stitch or used to repeat a small set of instructions between these brackets the number of times given

[] = used to repeat a longer set of instructions between these brackets, the number of times given

Special Stitches:

Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC):

Yarn over, insert your hook from front to back around the post of given stitch, from right to left, yarn over and finish your double crochet as usual.

Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC):

Yarn over, insert your hook from back to front around the post of given stitch, from right to left, yarn over and finish your double crochet as usual.

Gauge: 5 DC STS = 1” (2.5 cm)

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, it is not counted as a stitch, unless stated otherwise.
  • CH 3 always counts as double crochet
  • Slip stitches do not count as stitches.
  • From Row 25, I wrote the instructions in a Section, which is going to be repeated and I’ll refer to this section in the repeats further in the pattern (e.g. repeat Section)
  • In a separate file, I included the detailed stitch count for each row to keep your work tracked easily
  • US terms used throughout
  • At the end of the row, there’s going to be a note with the stitch count, so you can keep track of your work easily and avoid any mistakes. It’s written in a different color, the first line in bold is always the total stitch count for the row, under that, I included a stitch count per side in case you prefer it that way.
  • Notes are written in (brackets) to help you through the pattern.
  • You can start each round as I did in the pattern or you can use a standing stitch or chains, it’s totally up to you!
