Carnë Shawl

I just can’t stop creating rectangular shawls, they are so lovely and versatile!

This Scheepjes Whirl shade was just screaming in my stash to become something lacy and feminine so I gave in and created the design at last. 😀

This is a super easy pattern, with a two row repeat so you can easily sit back and relax while crocheting this beauty.

Say hello to my newest pattern, the Carnë Shawl! I hope you will like it too!

Special thanks to my testers: Kerry Freeman, Jan Henley and Zannah Söderlind!

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, that is not counted as a stitch, unless stated otherwise.
  • Slip stitches do not count as stitches.
  • CH 2 always counts as double crochet.
  • US terms used throughout
  • At the end of every round, there’s going to be a note with the stitch count, so you can keep track of your work easily and avoid any mistakes. It’s written in a different color in bold
  • Notes are written in a different color in (brackets) to help you through the pattern.
  • You can start each row as I did in the pattern or you can use a standing stitch or chains, it’s totally up to you!
  • You can easily adjust the width of you shawl: the starting chain should be multiples of 12+3 chains

Instructions

Important: Before you start, take off 10-12 grams (if you crochet loosely, you can take off 12-15 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)
