River’s Walk Shawl – FREE crochet pattern

Ta-dah!! I am so happy I managed to finish pattern writing for my newest shawl design. And here it is! Thank you so very much for name suggestions. I saved a few for future designs. :) And this shawl was named River’s Walk (with thanks to Robin Heller Barton!). If you missed the shawl’s reveal – check more pictures HERE.

~ Amour Clover crochet hook 4.5mm* or the size which will give you correct gauge
~ Tapestry needle to weave in yarn tails
~ Sport/DK yarn in six colors. I used River Washed and Stone Washed yarns by Scheepjes in the following shades (colors for green&orange sample are given in brackets):
  • Yarn A – River Washed 950 Wheaton (or 951 Amazon) x2 skeins
  • Yarn B – River Washed 945 Ganges (or 947 Seine) x1 skein
  • Yarn C – Stone Washed 813 Amazonite (or River Washed 952 Rhine) x2 skeins
  • Yarn D – River Washed 941 Colorado (or 949 Yarra) x2 skeins
  • Yarn E – River Washed 943 Mekong (or 944 Nile) x2 skeins
  • Yarn F – River Washed 942 Steenbras (or 948 Danube) x2 skeins
River Washed and Stone Washed yarns are available in your local Scheepjes shops, Caro's Atelier* (NL) and via large international retailers: Wool Warehouse* and Black Sheep Wools* (both in UK with international shipping), Knotty House* (Canada). And Poppy's of Holmfirth (UK) has ready yarn packs in both colorways (check them HERE and HERE).

Measurements: your shawl’s size will depend on yarn and hook you choose. My shawl is approx. 162cm/63.8in wide and 80cm/31.5in high when blocked.

Gauge: after 17 rows triangle is approx. 10cm/4in high

Pattern Notes:


  • River’s Walk Shawl consists of the body and several Geometric Panels.
  • Ch1 in the beginning of each row doesn’t count as a st. So first sc of each row is made in last stitch of previous row.
  • Cut yarn in the end of the rows only if there are bigger floats of yarn appear on the edge. Otherwise carry yarn from one row to next without cutting (within one geometric panel, for example).
  • When changing yarn in the end of the row, make the last stitch with new color (insert hook from back to front). That will make small floats on the WS but RS will look neater. Yarn is changed after every 2 rows - for Geometric Panels

  9. The colors do indeed remind me of the colorful buildings along the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas, U.S., and are so beautiful. Such a wonderful and substantial shawl. This will be one for my sister-in-law. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful creations with us.

  10. This is so beautiful! I love linen stitch. It's such a gentle, therapeutic stitch to work and I love the feel of the finished fabric. I think I may even have some yarn in my stash that would be perfect for it. Thank you so much!

  13. Ce châle est magnifique, les explications semblent claires (même si l'anglais et moi ne faisons pas bon ménage) et de tout cœur, MERCI de le partager !!!

  14. What a wonderful pattern.
    Please look one time to row 42. You write " 1 sc in next st". I think you should write sp. In your video you work your sc also in spaces.
    I hope, you understand what I mean.

    1. Hi, I don't understand your question. Can you please explain what you mean?

    2. Hi, I was wondering the same thing! Where it's written, for example, "Rows 37-40 with Yarn E (C)". Is this just to give an alternative colour choice? ��

      Delete
    3. ah, ok, now I get this :) the shades without brackets are given for pink/blue version (when you don't see the brackets it means the colors are the same for both versions). The colors in brackets are for green/orange version. On some rounds colors in both samples differ. Does it make sense?

    4. Brilliant, thank you! I've actually finished it now apart from seeing on the ends and making the tassels 😁
