This is the first post in my new series: “Vintage Revival”! I am so excited to be sharing this content with you guys. It is something that has been on my mind A LOT for the last few months. And it’s finally here! Read this to learn more about the series: Vintage Revival by Yarndrasil.
So, let’s talk about this shawl! First of all, it’s a one row repeat. That means that this project is perfect for beginners! Or if you’ve been crocheting for a while, this is an excellent meditative project that is best paired with your favorite show and big ol’ glass of wine.
The fabric this yarn creates is incredibly lightweight. And the drape is dreamy. The yarn I used contains mohair so, despite it being affordable, it feels and looks higher quality.
This is a one size fits all shawl. The original pattern calls it a scarf. Which I find kind of hilarious. It’s about 27.5″ wide by 52″ long, so it is most definitely a generously sized shawl.
I named it “The Nines Shawl” because as you’re working it up the stitches look like the Roman numeral for “9”. It’s also worked in multiples of 9+4. The name just felt right!
This shawl was published by Woolco Yarns in 1916. No designer is credited.

Finish with long fringe. I chose a hanging length of 7″. This means I cut my fringe to be 14″ long and then folded it over before attaching it.
