Houndstooth Wrap FREE Crochet Pattern

I am totally into the Houndstooth motif lately! Also known as Pied-de-poule. This pattern never really goes out of style I think , but I noticed it being very fashionable this Fall/Winter. So I just had to crochet something with this stylish duotone pattern. I made lots of colored Houndstooth swatches to finally decide to make a shawl in the traditional black and white combo after all!

You can get the free pattern and photo tutorial below or support me by purchasing the fully written and ad-free PDF version of this pattern in my Etsy or Ravelry shop.

You can use any kind of yarn with matching hook size. 

I used Stylecraft special DK 100% premium Acrylic (100gr/295m) with a Clover hook 4mm.

Color A: 2x Cream 1005

Color B: 2x Black 1002

My shawl measures: long side about 215cm, point 75cm. 

Abbreviations US terms: 

beg beginning

ch chain

ch-sp chain space

dc double crochet

slst slipstitch

st stitch/stitches

tr treble crochet 


Rows 4 and 5 form the pattern rows.

Repeat these rows until your shawl has the desired size, (my shawl has 80 rows here). End with a row 4 repeat.

Finishing row: 

3ch (counts as 1 tr), 2 dc in between the 3ch and dc, 1dc in next st, repeat [1dc in next st, work 1dc over the 1ch-sp in row below, 1dc in next 2 st] until the last st, (2dc, 1tr) in between the last 2 st. Cut yarn, fasten off and weave in all ends.

So in this row we do not chain and skip stitches, but work a dc in every stitch
