I have finished the pattern for the ‘Fairy Winterflower Shawl’, and I am sharing it with you today.
I hope you will enjoy this pattern a lot !
– Crochet pattern for a large openworked shawl with a flower stitch pattern motif. You choose your own prefered size shawl !
– Yarn : – I made one shawl with Scheepjes Silvi (1 ball = 100g = 100M, 30 % wool and 70% acrylic, super bulky yarn). My finished shawl measures : 225cm/90in wide and 55cm/22in high (without the fringe), and I used 5 balls = 500M.
– A second shawl is made using Scheepjes Invicta Colour (1 ball = 100g = 420M, 75 % wool and 25 % polyamid). I used 1,5 balls.
For The Netherlands and Belgium : you can find a list of all Scheepjes shops here : Shops.
– Crochet hook : 8-9 mm for the shawl made with Vinci yarn, and 4 mm for the shawl made with Invicta Colour.
– Gauge : not crucial, since you choose your own size shawl (when making the base chain).
– Used stitches : chain (ch), slipstitch (slst), double crochet (dc), triple crochet (tr), double triple crochet (dtr), chain-space (ch-space). I use US crochet terms
– You also need : tapestry needle to weave in ends, scissors, pins and mat for blocking, ruler.
– Crochet chart : there is a chart added.
– Turn after each row.
– 3ch = 1dc
– 4ch = 1tr
– 5ch = 1 dtr
– you start at the top, with the base chain. This is the widest part of your shawl. Decreases are made row after row, giving a lovely curved shape. You choose your own preferred size shawl, by making your base chain as many times as necessary. You also choose the ‘height’ of your shawl, by simply adding more or less pattern repeat rows.
– Row 1 : Make a long chain, as long as you want your shawl to become. (You will be needing a number of stitches that can be divided by 9 +3, but I simply advise to make a long chain, without counting J This means you will probably have some chains left at the end of the first row, but you can simply unfasten them at the end when finishing the shawl).
I made 192ch. Start in 5th ch from hook, work 1dc in next 2ch, * 5ch and miss 3ch, 1dc in next 6ch, repeat from * as many times as you want, end with 1dc in (last) 3ch, turn. (If you have some extra ch left, leave them for now).
– Row 2 : 5ch (= 1dtr), in every 5ch-space : 3tr+5ch+3tr, at the end of the row you have 3dc left, work in the last dc : 1dtr, turn.
– Row 3 : 4ch (= 1tr), in every 5ch-space except the last one : 6dc+5ch, work in the last 5ch-space : 6dc, at the end of the row you have 3tr left, work in the last tr : 1tr, turn.
– Row 4 : 5ch (= 1dtr), in every 5ch-space : 3tr+5ch+3tr, at the end of the row you have 6dc left, work in the last dc : 1dtr, turn
– Rows 5-… : Rows 3 and 4 form the pattern rows. Keep repeating these rows, as many times as you want. I made 14 rows in total. When your shawl is large enough, cut yarn and fasten off.
– weave in all ends.
– if you have some base chains left, just unchain them (by using a large tapestry needle).
– Make some lovely fringe (or tassels) and attach in every 5ch-space on the bottom part and along the sides as well.
I made fringe and used this method : cut 7 threads, all the same size, fold them double, put them through the 5ch-spaces and tie them.
