This pattern is really close to my heart as I designed it for my sister in law’s birthday, as a gift. I wanted to make something quick, yet beautifully textured and elegant. She loves pastel shades so the yarn cake I used was perfect for it.

Enjoy my newest design, which is super easy and fast to make!

I hope you’ll find it as beautiful as me.

Difficulty:                          Advanced Beginner

Finished Size:                   175 cm/ 69” long

                                           45 cm/ 17.75” wide

Gauge:                 Unimportant, as your garment will be blocked upon finishing to the size given

Materials needed:

  • 3.5 mm (E) size hook (You can buy some great ones HERE)
  • 1 Twirls Deluxe or approx. 1000 meters of any fingering weight yarn (I used Twirls Deluxe in Regent Rose)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers (optional)

Stitches Used and Abbreviations:

CH = chain

SK = skip

ST/STS= stitch/ stitches

SC = single crochet

DC = double crochet

2DCCL = 2 double crochet cluster

V ST= V stitch

Cluster V ST = 2 double crochet cluster V stitch

Puff V ST= puff V stitch

{ } =indicates how many stitches go into the same stitch/space

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

Special Stitches:

2 Double Crochet Cluster (2DCCL):

  1. Yarn over hook, insert hook in indicated stitch/space, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, leave the stitch unfinished. (2 loops on hook)
  2. Yarn over, insert hook in same indicated stitch/space, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

V Stitch (V ST):

Double crochet in indicated stitch/space, chain 1, double crochet in same stitch/space.

Puff V Stitch (Puff V ST):

  1. Yarn over hook, insert hook in indicated stitch/space, pull up a long loop through that stitch (3 loops on hook)
  2. Yarn over hook again, insert hook into the same stitch, pull up a loop (same height as the previous one). You should have 5 loops on your hook.
  3. Yarn over and pull through 4 loops, (2 loops remain on your hook)
  4. Yarn over and pull through both remaining loops. (This way, you will only have 1 loop on top of the puff stitches, instead of 2)
  5. Chain 1 and then repeat instructions from 1.-4.

Cluster V ST (Cluster V ST):

2 DCCL in indicated stitch/space, chain 1, 2 DCCL in same stitch/space.

Picot Stitch (Picot ST):

CH 3, SLST into the third CH from hook

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, it is not counted as a stitch, unless stated otherwise.
  • Slip stitches do not count as stitches.
  • US terms used throughout
  • Remember to turn your work after each row
  • 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)
  • Notes are written in a different color in (brackets) to help you through the pattern.
  • NOTE: Blocking is essential to enhance the lace patternwork of your shawl and to ensure that your edges are straight

Instructions

Important: Before you start, take off 10 grams (if you crochet loosely, you can take off 10-15 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)
