If you like crochet shawl patterns then you are at the right place. This is simple crochet rectangle shawl pattern that can be described in so many ways.
It’ll fit in with many different styles. Make one to wear while attending a wedding. Make one to wear as a scarf with a casual top. A shawl for everyday wear or for a fancy gathering.
This simple crochet rectangle shawl really is an easy pattern to crochet. With just a 1 row repeat it can easily be made while watching tv.
It incorporates 2 sections on each end that are lace and a solid stitch pattern in the center. But, the solid stitch can still be a little lacy as it is a taller stitch.
The lacy stitch used in this wrap is called the Y-Stitch. It is a go-to crochet stitch for Summer crochet patterns. Find a full tutorial here all about the Y-Stitch!
The other main stitch used throughout this crochet wrap is the treble crochet. The treble crochet stitch is even used to create part of the Y-stitch. It is a nice tall stitch.

Helpful notes from testers:
- Occasionally count the treble crochet stitches between the Y-stitches to make sure you are staying on track and not missing or adding stitches along the way.
- A stitch marker can be added to the first and the last treble crochet stitch in the center section between the Y-stitches.
