Have you ever wanted to learn to crochet a shawl with a pretty texture? The Picot Crochet Shawl uses two strands of yarn held together for some sections. The Hawthrone Tonal Hand Painted Yarn paired with the Aloft Hand Painted Mohair Yarn creates a soft and cozy wrap.
I second-guessed this pattern a few times; that just happens in the design process. I ended up frogging a couple of times because I wanted to mohair to be just right in the shawl pattern. However, I am pleased with the outcome using the Aloft Hand Painted Mohair Yarn on some of the rows and not the entire triangle shawl. And the transition between the two strands of yarn and then one strand of Hawthorne Tonal Hand Paint became my favorite part.
Venturing into a Florida Forest
And for this crochet shawl, my sister and I ventured into her backyard for the photography. She has lived at her home for the last five years, but we have only wandered into the back part of her property recently. I'm sure there is a gator living back there, or at least there could be, so we wanted to be careful.
It was so funny when we discovered so many different plants we had previously purchased at a local nursery. We didn't need to spend money! My sister was unknowingly growing them in her back yard. I grabbed a bag and started taking so many plants home with me. They have all started to grow well in my backyard. I love being able to make landscaping pretty for free.

Picot Crochet Shawl Notes:
- The Picot Shawl is crocheted in a triangle shawl shape with some sections of the yarn using two strands of yarn held at once (fingering weight and mohair weight).
- Even though the instructions are labeled RS and WS for clarity, the shawl is reversible.
- Placing a marker at the ch 2 center space can be helpful to keep track of the center increase stitch.
- When a stitch is written in front of the abbreviation such as Xdc- this means the X number of stitches will all be in one stitch or space. When the stitch is written after the abbreviation such as dc X - this means stitches will each be worked across X amount of stitches.
- If a larger shawl is desired, add additional repeats, but remember, you will need one more hank of each color of yarn.
- Picot: ch 3, sl st in first ch.
