Crochet Frosted Layer Cake Shawl

The new Caron Cakes yarn is a perfect yarn for making this warm and comfy shawl. Crochet Frosted Layer Cake Shawl. Feel free to substitute your favorite worsted weight yarn in solids or mixing colors for a lovely effect.  This pattern would also be nice to use for your prayer shawl circle.

This generous size shawl is 85″ x 27″.  I wear it with the top edge rolled down to give the appearance of having a collar.  You can easily make it smaller or larger to your preferred size.  In fact, as a one Caron Cake crochet pattern, it would be a nice shawlette at 47″ x 16″.

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.

    I was trying to print the pattern and can’t seem to get it. Any help would be appreciated. Not too good on computer.

    1. Under the title photo, there are little icons to save to pdf, print, etc. Hope this helps.

    Hi Jeanne
    Is there a diagram for this shawl?

  3. Lori McDaniel says:

    It looks as though you crocheted a collar, but im not seeing that in the directions, or missing it one of the two. I am about to turn to work on the top edge, at the edging stage and wanted a small collar. Can you clarify how you made, did your collar for me? Im making this for my mil for christmas. Thanks in advance. Lori

    1. There is no extra collar. It’s just the way I wear it. I bring it up and fold it over to create the illusion of a collar. Simple. 🙂

  4. LaLaurie K says:

    In the video it seems like the end loops (chain 4) is just dc, chain, dc.. Then turn… But the written instructions make it seem like it’s dc,dc, chain, dc then turn… Can you clarify which is correct ?? I’m just starting and going by the written pattern but I’d hate to get too far in and realize it’s wrong., thank you!!!

    1. That’s because you dc into the ch-4, which is really a dc and ch-1, then dc-ch1-dc in the 3rd ch. from the written, dc in ch-1 sp, dc-ch1-dc in last st. I’m pretty sure that what shows in the video too.

      1. LaLaurie K says:

        Thank you!! I finally got it going. I’ve only been crocheting for about a year and a half so sometimes I get confused. When I was going by the video I must have been missing that part because I kept coming up short on row 3… I really appreciate you giving feedback on the pattern!!

      2. Your welcome! Glad you got it.

    Love this! Christmas for my always cold sister

  6. Lisa A Zafar says:

    Please help! I want to make this for my daughter who is very overweight but I can’t find instructions for increasing the pattern.

    1. To make it larger, just continue the rows until it’s the size you desire.

  7. Jeff says:

    In the pictures of the Frosted Layer Cake Shawl is that a pin or a button holding it together in the fron

    I love your Frosted Layer Cake Shawl! I have a question though…I’ve been looking for a cool hooded poncho pattern for a long time without much luck. This is so close to one!!! Is there a way to make this into a hooded poncho? You would make an awesome one! If not, I think Mikey would so accept and excel at the challenge of designing a hooded poncho!!! Thank you!! Love your website, patterns, YouTube, everything!!

    1. I have a massive to do list. Let me put this on there. I don’t know when I will get to this but I will add it. 😀

      1. Jamie says:

        I bet you do have a HUGE list!! All good fun though 😉 Sorry I’m just getting back to this…yeash! I would totally give you my email to please let me know if you release one and I miss it…but you’re so busy and one more thing to try to remember 😉 I love your work and your videos…Crack me up too with your Hobby Lobby video! Thank you for your time!! I wish badly to find out how I could get super cheap yarn! I’m disabled and have no money at all…I crochet as therapy really…and gifts for people if I ever finish them :/ Keep the good stuff coming 😉
