Introduction

I made this simple little shawl after looking at the Dragonfly Shawl and being too lazy to do that one!


Materials List

G hook

fingering weight or sock yarn – at least one skein, but if you want to make it bigger, you will need more yarn

yarn needle

pins and a surface for blocking – I used large push pins and did it on my wooden deck

Finished Size

it’s up to you!

Gauge

not important

Notes

This pattern is written by a lazy person, so your going to have to use your noggin to work it out. It is more of a sketch than an all out pattern. Good luck! I know you can do it! (I am also a very friendly person who is more than willing to answer questions and help you along.)

 If you would like to buy the full version of this pattern – complete with charts!  I changed the name to Shawlette de Veronique and it is available in my Ravelry store http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/shawlette-de-veronique

The Pattern

Logwood Shawlette

abbreviations :

ch = chain

ch 2 sp = chain 2 space

slst = slip stitch

dc = double crochet

 

special stitches :

Shell = 2dc, ch3, 2dc

v = 1dc, ch1, 1dc

V = 1dc, ch3, 1dc

 

To begin :

ch 6, join in a circle with a slst,

ch 5, (dc in ring, ch 2) x 5

For the rest of the shawl :

start each row with the following : ch 5, 3dc in ch 2 sp, ch 3

end each row with the following : ch 3, 3dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, dc in same ch 2 sp

the very middle of each row will always be a Shell

the main idea for this shawl is based on repeating a 5 row pattern of increase :

1. V, ch 3, shell, ch 3, V

2. v in ch 3 sp, V in V, v in ch 3 sp, ch 3, shell in shell, ch 3, v in ch 3 sp, V in V

3. v in v, ch 1, V in V, ch 1, v in v, ch 3, shell in shell, ch 3 v, ch 1, V, ch 1, v

4. v, ch 2, V, ch2, v, ch 3, shell, ch 3, v, ch 2, V, ch 2, v

5. V, ch3, shell, ch 3, V, ch 3, shell, ch 3, V, ch 3, shell, ch 3, V

 

continue on repeating this pattern and you will end up with a very ruffly shawl

I didn’t want it to be so ruffly, so I started doing treble crochet instead of double after a while

block it out with pins to open up the lace and achieve the best drape
