I made this shawl for my mother as a gift. She wanted something not too airy but textured and rectangular. I think I was successful and moreover she loves it too.

You can download an AD FREE printable version of this pattern for a small fee in my Ravelry store here.

Difficulty:

Advanced Beginner / Intermediate

Size:

Before blocking: 66” long, 12” wide / 168 cm long, 30,5 cm wide

Materials needed:

  • 3.5 mm (E) size hook
  • 1 Scheepjes Whirl or approx. 1000 meters of any fingering weight yarn (you can order the yarn from here too and if you spend more than £20, you get £5 off!)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers

Stitches Used and Abbreviations:

CH = chain

SK = skip

ST/STS= stitch/ stitches

BLO = back loop only

SC = single crochet

HDC = half double crochet

DC = double crochet

FPDC = front post double crochet

DCtog = double crochets together

SWPuff ST = sideways puff stitch

Picot ST = picot stitch

*-* =repeat pattern between these symbols (This is only used for a full repeat, may contain smaller repeats)

{} =indicates how many stitches go into the same stitch or used to repeat a small set of instructions between these brackets the number of times given

[] = used to repeat a longer set of instructions between these brackets, the number of times given

Special Stitches:

Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC):

Yarn over, insert your hook from front to back around the post of given stitch, from right to left, yarn over and finish your double crochet as usual.

Double Crochet 4 together (DC4tog):

  1. Yarn over, insert hook into given stitch/space, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, leave the stitch unfinished (2 loops on hook)
  2. Yarn over, insert hook into given stitch/space, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, leave the stitch unfinished (3 loops on hook),
  3. Yarn over, insert hook into given stitch/space, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, leave the stitch unfinished (4 loops on hook),
  4. Yarn over, insert hook into given stitch/space, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over pull through all 5 loops, CH 1 to close. (CH 1 doesn’t count as a stitch)

Crossed double crochet:

Skip 1 stitch and put 1 double crochet into the next stitch, then put 1 double crochet into the skipped stitch. This way you will create nice little double crochet ”crosses”.

Sideways Puff Stitch (SWPuff ST):

Before you make a sideways puff stitch you always have 3 DC STS

Yarn over hook, insert hook in indicated stitch (this is going to be the ST you put the first DC into {it’s the base of the first DC}, NOT the DC itself!), pull up a long loop through that stitch/space (3 loops on hook)

(Yarn over hook again and insert hook into the same stitch, pull up a loop (same height as the previous one) 3 more times. You should have 9 loops on your hook.

Yarn over and pull through 8 loops, (2 loops on your hook) , yarn over and pull through both loops.

You can dowload a helpful photo tutorial for the SW Puff ST below:

Picot Stitch (Picot ST):

CH 3, SLST into the third CH from hook

Gauge:

7 DC stitches = 1”

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, it is not counted as a stitch, unless stated otherwise.
  • CH 2 and CH 3 always counts as double crochet, unless stated otherwise.
  • Slip stitches do not count as stitches.
  • From Row 15 I wrote the instructions in sections and I’ll refer to these sections in the repeats further in the pattern (e.g. repeat section 1)
  • US terms used throughout
  • Remember to turn your work after each row
  • Notes are written in (brackets) to help you through the pattern.
  • Blocking is essential to make it look nice and the edges straight

Instructions

Important: Before you start, take off 5-6 grams from the beginning of the skein, which will be used to make the border at this end of the shawl (I will refer to this as leftover yarn 1)
