Drucilla Shawl crochet pattern - digital or hard copy



Drucilla is a very versatile shawl that can be crocheted in laceweight up to DK yarn. The pattern can be used with any of those weight yarns in the John Arbon Textiles range.

Simple and repetitive V-stitches mean you can crochet a triangular shawl, increasing the row lengths as you go. If you fancy a really snuggly double thickness shawl, you can crochet Drucilla corner to corner (C2C).

A simple border is added, either using the same yarn or a contrast colour. Using a weight percentage system, you can work out how much yarn you need. The border requires up to 10% of the weight of the main body of the shawl. For example:

  • The Appledore heavy laceweight C2C version uses 180g for the main body and 18g of the same colour for the border.
  • The Devonia 4ply triangular version uses 200g for the main body and 20g for the contrast colour border.
  • The Knit by Numbers DK triangular version uses 200g for the main body and 20g for the contrast colour border.

If you make this shawl, it would be great to see it on Instagram - #DrucillaShawl #FayDHDesigns

Yarn substitutes: Something with the same or very similar meterage.  It can be a different blend but be aware that meterage requirements will change if you substitute yarns.  

Blocking: This is a project that definitely benefits from blocking to open up the V sts and create a lacey fabric.

Pattern Pricing

I now operate a ‘pay what you can’ scale for my electronic/downloadable single patterns.  I usually charge £5 for these patterns and to encourage access for all crafters, these are now available on a scale of £3 - £7 and you chose what you can afford within that scale. 

Please note that this doesn’t apply to my hard copy patterns, which remain priced at £5 and come with an automatic digital download.


Pattern format

Drucilla is a six-page document.  If you are purchasing a printed copy, it is A4 sized with large, clear text.

Weights given are approximated to provide the best estimate for postage and packaging costs only.


Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating

This product was originated and printed by me at Fay Dashper-Hughes Designs.  The pattern is printed on paper that is manufactured using wind power,100% recycled post-consumer fibre and carbon neutral.

Postage and Packaging

You can read all about P&P here.

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
