Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette
I love making shawlettes for myself because I can wear them as scarves under my coat in the cold, and then use them as accessories over my clothes while I’m out. Being a native New Yorker, I have a lot of black in my wardrobe, so the Over the Rainbow colorway in Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic seemed like a great way to bring a little sunshine with me wherever I go.
This pattern was originally designed for the Make it for Me! Crochet-a-Long with ELK Studio.
Basic crochet stitches: chain, double crochet, single crochet, slip stitch
Crocheting in rows for shawlette and border, crocheting in rounds for edging
Increasing and decreasing with dc2tog and dc3tog (written explanations provided in pattern)
Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic (100% Icelandic wool, 1.75 oz/50 g/195 yds/178 m) – 3 skeins in Over the Rainbow, or approximately 530 yds (484.5 m) in any super fine weight yarn.
US Size E-4 (3.5 mm) crochet hook, or any size needed to obtain gauge.
3 locking stitch markers, or scrap yarn.
Adjustable. Photographed sample measured 66” (167.5 cm) wingspan x 9.5” (24 cm) spine before blocking; 70” (178 cm) wingspan x 9.5” (24 cm) spine after blocking.
18 sts x 9 rows = 4” (10 cm) in dc pattern. Exact gauge is not critical for this project.
