Downton Abbey Crochet Shawl

Tea with Lady Grantham pattern collage2

The “Tea With Lady Grantham Shawl” is now available to purchase for $5.00.  You can CLICK ON THE FIRST PHOTO to purchase it, visit the PATTERNS page here on the blog, or find it in my Ravelry Store (you do not have to be a Ravelry Member to purchase patterns there).

My love of the 19th and early-20th century eras also extends to my choice of reading material and the television shows and movies I watch! Therefore, I am a fan of the popular “Downton Abbey” series. One of the most wonderful characters in it is, I think, Violet Crawley—Lady Grantham. I first intended to name my shawl the “Tea With Lady Violet” Shawl but quickly realized how it may offend her sense of etiquette, as her proper title is not ”Lady Violet” but “Lady Grantham.”

This crescent shaped shawl uses about 1200 m of fingering weight/sock weight yarn.  I used a 3.5mm hook.  The finished size is approximately 10″ deep, 52″ neck edge, 128″ bottom edge, and the unique shape makes it very versatile for wearing different ways–as a wrap, a scarf, a shawl, etc.  It will look fabulous with jeans, but would be a perfect accessory for a summer wedding too.

If you love this shape and style, the “Lady Edith’s London Nights Shawl” is also available as a pdf pattern! While Tea With Lady Grantham is based on double crochet stitch patterns, the Lady Edith’s London Nights uses single crochet as a base.  If you look back in my posts, I published several free cloth patterns to practice some of the stitches used in these shawls.  I will also have a pattern-pack of cloths available soon as a paid pdf download, if you want to make Downton Abbey Cloths and like the convenience of a pdf.
