What is a Pocket Shawl?

A crochet pocket shawl is a really cozy and practical piece of clothing that’s perfect for chilly weather. It’s like a regular crochet shawl, but with the added bonus of pockets! The pockets can be used to keep your hands warm, hold your phone or keys, or even stash a snack for later. And because it’s crocheted, you can choose from a wide variety of yarns and colors to make a shawl that’s uniquely yours.

It’s a great project for anyone who loves to crochet, and it makes for a thoughtful and functional gift for friends and family.

You may have heard them being called pocket scarves in your search for the perfect pocket shawl. Whatever they are called or what you prefer to call them, they all serve the same purpose, which is to keep you warm and cozy!

Crochet Stitches in Pocket Shawls

Most of these cozy shawl patterns are perfect for beginners and use basic stitches, which means you don’t have to make just one! Take a look at a few of the stitches you’ll see in the shawl patterns below.

  2. Yo (yarn over) and pull back through the st and through the loop on the hook.

Double Crochet (dc): 

  1. Wrap the yarn over (yo) the hook, insert the hook into the specified st.
  2. Yo the hook again, draw the yarn through the st, so there are 3 loops on the hook

  4. Yo the hook, draw it through the final 2 loops.

Single Crochet (sc):

  1. Insert hook from front to back in the second chain from the hook or designated stitch
  2. Bring the yarn over (Yo) the hook and pull the yarn back through the chain (or stitch) from back to front (2 loops on hook).
