This Lacy Rectangle Shawl Pattern is made in beautiful Red Heart Unforgettable Yarn for stunning texture and color. Easily adjusted to make any size.
Using the taller crochet stitches, you can easily see the quick progress. The flowers are formed by making six petals in treble crochet clusters. Once you get going, you won’t want to stop!

Technique: Regular Crochet
Skill Level: Intermediate
I’ve chosen an Intermediate skill level. The stitches themselves are easy but the placement can be a little tricky since some of the stitches are in an unusual position. Once you get it figured out, though, you’ll be all set. It only takes the one time to get it figured out.

My Crochet Pattern Notes
My favorite part of this shawl is learning how to make the flowers that are incorporated throughout. The full flower is made on two rows. Four petals are made first then, when you come back around on the next row, two more petals are made at the top.
The process of making the flowers introduces stitches you may not have seen before so I’ve provided some step by step photos to help you.

Red Heart “Unforgettable”, 100% acrylic, 270 yds/246m per 3.5 oz/100g per skein, 3 skeins, color: Sugarcane, approx. 810 yards used. Even though this yarn is classified as a size 4 aran weight, it’s thick and thin throughout making it more lacy at different places. Just carry on. It’s a great characteristic of the yarn and will give depth to the finished project.
“Unforgettable” is classified as an Aran weight (size 4) yarn and is currently available in 13 shades. I’ve never had a colorway I didn’t like with Unforgettable. Choose your favorite and it will be gorgeous.

Since this shawl can be made to any size, you could technically use any weight of yarn. Use the crochet hook that gives you the “hand” you like for the shawl. Stop crocheting whenever you have reached the length you desire.
An excellent substitution is Facets Yarn by Loops & Threads. It’s currently available in 21 shades.
Suggested Crochet Hook Size H-8 (5mm) or hook needed to meet gauge.
Yarn Needle for weaving ends.
This design is made for any weight yarn so gauge (tension) isn’t as important as it is to make the fabric you like. You want it to be flexible enough to drape across the shoulders easily.
Using different weights of yarns will require different yardages. To get closest to the shawl shown, after row 5, the width measures about 16″ and the height is about 3.5″.

Placement Step by Step Photo Tutorial
- The 2-TRcl is made in the fourth chain from hook as shown by the toothpick.
- The initial chain 4 sits right up next to the cluster.
- Once you start making the 6-TRcl in the 2 chain-5 spaces, the 2-TRcl sits sideways.
- Close the 6-TRcl. Three petals now formed.
- Chain out from the 6-TRcl to for the next 2-TRcl, which will also turn sideways.
- Four petals are now formed. The top two petals are formed on the next row.
- On the next row, two 3-TRcl are made in the center of the 4-cluster group, shown by the toothpick.
- The two clusters are made in the same position, separated by a chain 3.
