I am so excited about my newest design, the It’s Shawl Good cardigan. We are starting to see completed shawls in the Heart Hook Home Crochet Community and they are just gorgeous!

It’s Shawl Good CHILD Size (4/6)

This sleeved triangle shawl is so much fun to make and creates a lovely, swishy fabric that makes you just want to dance. Oh, the drape, the swish and sway of the fabric! Here’s a short video of me modeling my latest adult size.

All sizes are linked below, if you would like the printable file including ALL children’s sizes, you can find that on Ravelry here. Thank you!

A HUGE Thank you to Susan for testing and having her lovely little model! ♥

Pattern notes:

• Pattern written using US terms.
• Use a stitch marker to mark the center most stitch of each row.
• On the hdc rows, go around the ch-sp from the previous row instead of into the ch – it’s faster!
• Place first st of each row in same as turning. (the beginning chain does not count as a stitch)
• When counting stitches, make sure you count each triple crochet AND each chain stitch.
• Add a hook & eye closure, a button closure, a tie closure, or no closure at all.
• I have highlighted the parts that require more attention using RED.

  1. I haven’t crochet in probably 40 years so it was a learning experience. I watched the tutorial step by step and I ended up with a beautiful shawl cardigan for 4 year old granddaughter that she loves. It was fun and hooked me on crocheting again. Thanks
  2. Also, you only have to do the division for one row as there will be a pattern to how many stitches are added to each row and you can then just add the stitches to each row instead of dividing each row out! It is much easier, faster and less frustrating to do the counting on each side of the middle marker than it is to try to figure out of a whole row where you went wrong and then have to frog a whole row or rows to correct a mistake! Counting is your friend! Count by twos and it goes very quickly! Happy crocheting!
  3. I have figured a way to count and check as I go so that I don’t have to frog a whole row because I missed a stitch in the first half! This is the method: Take the total stitch count for each row and divide it in half, rounding up one extra count for the left side of the stitch marker in the middle. Then the right side stitch count will always be one less than the left side. For example 179 stitches for the row, 90 st on the left of the middle and 89 to the right of the middle marker. Then you crochet through the mid marker stitch, place your marker and then your count should be the 89 st. If it isn’t you can easily go back to find your mistake before completely the whole row.
    1. There should be the exact same number of sts on each side of the stitch marker...so if the row should have 179 sts, then you would have 89 sts, on each side of the middle marked stitch.
  4. Just wondering why the number difference in rows 13 to 16?; as row 12 is 97 sts n row is 87? Confusing....
  5. Hi Ashlea! I’ve asked questions about this pattern before and I love the shawligan for my granddaughters! I’m making 4! I have had a lot of tearing out on each one. I’ve gotten so frustrated! My counts won’t match up. I think I’m being exact by following the written pattern and the video but I guess I’m doing something wrong in my counts. I am now wondering if I shouldn’t count the turning stitch. Could you advise? Thanks! Cathy
  6. Hi. This is beautiful, but I have lost count of how many times I have unraveled my work trying to get it right. Row 11 never makes 85 stitches, and now I've gone and done the math, I can't make it equal 85 stitches as written. What am I missing? Thanks for any help you can give.
    1. Hi Yvette! I double checked and it is right... Row 11: Ch-3, turn, 3tc in first.(3 sts); * ch-1, sk-1 st, tc in next * (2sts); repeat between * * 17 more times. (34 sts); (ch-1, tc) 3x in center st, (6 sts); ch-1 and tc in next st.(2 sts); Repeat between * * 17x (34 sts); Ch-1, sk next st, (1 st); 3tc in last. (3 sts); 3 + 2 + 34 + 6 + 2 + 34 + 1 + 3 = 85 total row sts
      1. Nope this count is not correct. I've gone over the pattern multiple times and if you take a look at you picture for row 3 and count the stitches you only come up with a total of 13 stitches. I even watched you video and counted along with you and come up with the same count as 13 stitches.? So yeah it makes it very hard to watch your video and look at the pattern your stitch counts just don't add up to 21. I even counted the stitches in the pattern and it only comes up as 13 not 21. I want to make this for my granddaughter but am going to have to re count each row. I've been crocheting since I was 10 thought by my grandmother that passed away a very very long time ago and she would tell me the same the stitch count is off.
        1. Well this was really bothering me so much that I went back and re did row 3 after getting to row 11. So I had your pattern on my phone and the video on my tablet and followed along with you I think I figured out where Cathy was not getting the count correct. Remember that the change one is counted as a stitch do after redoing row 3 I finally came up with 21 stitches so for row 11 once I get there should add up to 85 because of the change one needs to be counted as a stitch. Will let you know when I get there shortly
      2. So I think I figured it out looking at you stitch counts it appears for the center count you times it twice for 6 stitches but your video only shows you putting 3 stitches in the center not 6 and the 17 stitches you did the same thing you counted it twice for 34 but there is only 17 one side 17 on other side. The counts still do not add up for the size 4
  7. Јust wanna comment on few generаl tһings, The website style ɑnd design is perfect, the articles іs гeally wonderful :D.
  8. I’m wondering how you were able to match the stripes of coloring on the sleeves to the body of the sweater.
    1. Hi Charlene! I planned the striping on the sleeves...I used the body of the shawl as my color striping guide...it requires cutting the yarn every couple rows to change to the next color, therefore more ends to weave in...but I love the uniform final look. Hope this helps!
  9. I like your website design and your content. I am a food lover and love baking on the weekend when time allows me to cook.
  10. Hi, i love this!! Making it for my daughters & myself just wondering how long u made the fringe on this one please?
  11. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern!! I’ve been searching for this exact type of thing for my Grandaughter, this is even her size. I’m excited to start!
    1. Hi Melody! It just depends on which yarn you choose to use...different brands/types of yarn has different yardages in their skeins. This particular pattern uses approximately 515 yards if that helps...
    1. Hi Pia! The post for the adult version is here: https://hearthookhome.com/its-shawl-good-cardigan-fringed-triangle-shawl-with-sleeves-crochet-pattern/
  12. Hoping this isn't asking too much But is there possibly a 4T/5T available for this pattern. I want to surprise someone's daughter but this is her size
      1. I LOVE THIS! I made a 45th of July version of this only used 2 skeins of americana by red heart yarn made it for my 5 year old in the child 4/6 size it worked up solo fast and she adores it I decided not to add sleves I just did row1 of the sleve section IT TURNED OUT AMAZING! I am buying all size pattern THANK YOU SO MUCH the video was so great and helpful no frogging nessicary I am in love with this pattern will be making one for everyone I know!!!!
  13. Is there a video or more pictures of the pattern (especially for the sleeves part)? The shawl is really cute. I can't wait to try it
  14. Hi Ashlea! So adorable. Question... what cotton yarn did your tester use for the one in the photos? It looks like caron cotton cakes and I believe I have the same colorway. But it I also have something similar from sugarwheel. Lol. Ultimately my daughter will be deciding... but she of course regards Momma's input
