Crochet 2 Cake Shawl

This simple Caron 2 Cake Shawl is a variation of the Nightberry Shawl that I crocheted last month.  My friend Megan McHugh really enjoyed the stitch pattern of the Nightberry, but preferred a rectangular-shaped stole design.  Megan reworked the pattern and crocheted hers using 3 balls of Bernat Pop yarn.  I like crocheting with Caron Cakes and was able to make mine with only 2 Cakes.  Either way, the long color repeat creates a really pretty shawl.

Free Pattern: 2 Cake Shawl

The rectangular shape drapes nicely around the shoulders, but also can be worn around the neck for a thick scarf for the winter.  This cake shawl would also be perfect for your charity giving to comfort a loved one or as a prayer shawl.

Finished size is 22″ x 64″

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

  4. Catherine Cooper says:

    I liked the article but it would be nice if there was a link to download the pattern as a PDF file.

  5. Rebecca says:

    I enjoyed stitching the Nightberry Shawl so much but like your friend I used Bernat Pop and it took about two and a half cakes because I altered the pattern slightly to make it more “plus-size”. It was the first thing I’ve ever made for myself and I am really enjoying the warmth it provides.

  6. Traci says:

    Love the stole & just happen to have two lonesome cakes that need a project.

    1. Catherine Harris says:

      I also have 3 Caron Cakes without a project. This is going to be it. I have Pumpkin Spice and it will be perfect. I’m finally making something for myself!!!

  7. Jennefer says:

    What is the stitch count if I want to change the width? Is it 3’s or 3 plus something?

    1. Multiple of 3 + 2 (1 dc on each end).
