Cobblestone Path Shawl
This Cobblestone Path Shawl is an oversized shawl that acts like a super warm chunky blanket and it will definitely keep you from the freezing winter weather. The bulky weight yarn helps to achieve the softness, thickness and cosiness of the shawl. It is a very versatile shawl as it is also part cardigan, part poncho, part wrap and part blanket. Though I really enjoy wearing mine as a blanket more than a shawl! This easy to crochet shawl can be worn on top of a jacket or cardigan for extra warmth. It is an easy shawl to crochet as you only need to know the basics of crochet such as chaining, double crochet and skipping stitches. So it makes the perfect project for beginners who want to try their hand at something cosy and for those who have been crocheting for a while who want to add this Cobblestone Path Shawl to your outfit.
I would not normally buy unusual looking yarn at my local yarn store, as I am often finding myself thinking what will I do with this? But when I saw this yarn at my local craft store with the lovely grey and white tones, I just had to take it home with me. It just fell into my basket. Honestly! As I was working up this project, I notice that the differences in the thickness of the yarn, from the thin to thick, resembled a cobblestone pathway with the typical uneven appearance. And that was how the name Cobblestone Path Shawl was born!

What You’ll Need
8 x 100g balls Moda Vera Kald, 48% acrylic and 52% wool; 12 ply (AU)/ bulky (US)/ chunky (UK); 1 ball is 55m/60 yards (or any yarn that is similar)
12 mm crochet hook or O/17 crochet hook
P.S. The image below is Moda Vera Kald so you can see what I mean by different types of thicknesses throughout the yarn to create the cobblestone effect.
Examples of yarn that are similar when searching loveknitting.com include; King Cole Opium and Plymouth Yarn Merino Textura. I am sure there are more examples but that is all I could find at the moment.
Length 200 cm/78 inches
Width 47 cm/19 inches
Please note, I am roughly 5 ft 7″ just to give you an idea of how long it will be. If you need to make it smaller or longer, ch multiples of 2 + 2 until the ch goes from just below your bottom on one side, over your shoulders, then down to the other side below your bottom. The yarn will stretch as you work up this shawl and therefore will become longer.
Diagram for the Cobblestone Path Shawl
In this diagram, the grey rectangle is the bulk of the shawl (rows 1-6 and 8-16) and the white rectangles are the openings for your arms (row 7). The rectangle shawl will be worn draped over your shoulders as well.

Make a sl knot and ch 116 (this size fits most), or ch multiple of 2 + 2
Please keep in mind that the starting ch was long enough to go from just below my bottom on one side, over my shoulders, then to the other side below my bottom. As you can see from the pictures when this shawl is worked up, it will stretch and become longer going closer to your knees.
Row 1: Dc 1 into 3rd ch from hook, dc 1 into each ch along, turn work at end of row (114 Dc)
Row 2: Ch 2 (turning chain), dc 1 into 1st st, dc 1 into each st along, turn work at end of row (114 Dc)
Row 3-6: Repeat Row 2 (114 Dc)
Create armholes (Row 7)
Row 7: Ch 2 (turning chain), dc 1 into 1st st, dc 1 into next 19 sts, ch 6, sk 6 sts, dc 1 into next st along (creates 1st armhole), dc 1 in each of the next 62 sts, ch 6, sk 6 sts, dc 1 into next 20 sts (creates 2nd armhole), turn work at end of row (102 Dc and 12 chs)
Row 8: Ch 2 (turning chain), dc 1 into 1st st, dc 1 into next 19 sts, dc 6 into ch-6 sp, dc 1 into next 62 sts, dc 6 into ch-6 sp, dc 1 into next 20 sts, turn work at end of row (114 Dc)
Row 9: Ch 2 (turning chain), dc 1 into 1st st, dc 1 into each st along, turn work at end of row (114 Dc)
Row 10 – 16: Repeat Row 9
To finish the shawl, secure the work and weave in all of the ends. Now you are all set to wear this shawl!
– This is worked as 1 long rectangle with holes for your arms.
– As you work more rows, the starting length will become bigger due to the weight of the yarn. I started with my chain just below my bottom and after 16 rows, the shawl was at my knees. How crazy is that?
– Row 1 – 7 is the smallest part of the shawl and will be worn at the front.
– Row 8 – 16 is the largest part of the shawl and will be worn over your shoulders and back.
