Accretion

€5.56

SIZE:

51" x 23" (130 x 59 cm)- not easily adjustable

MATERIALS: 

Expression Fiber Arts SeaCoast Fingering yarn

439 yards/400 meters each 100 g/3.5 oz skein

Shown in colors: Atlantic (Color A), Grey Whale (Color B), Sunwashed (Color C), and Corallium (Color D)

Total yards used for this sample: approximately 770 yds total (425 yds Color A, 125 yds Color B, 125 yds Color C, 85 yds Color D) / [704 m total (389 m Color A, 114 m Color B, 114 m Color C, 78 m Color D)]. Use your leftover yarn to knit the companion pattern, the Countercurrent Cloche.

If those colors aren't available, any from this category will work.

HOOK:

US size ​​F/5 (3.75 mm) crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge

SKILL LEVEL: 

Adventurous Beginner: This pattern is for those crocheters who know basic stitches and are ready to learn some new skills. Skills/concepts include simple increases and decreases and working into back loops only. 

Notes from the Designer:

Accretion is the process of growth or increase, typically by the gradual accumulation of additional layers or matter. It is the opposite of erosion, such as when waves push sand back upon the shore. This shawl gradually increases with row upon row of simple single and double crochet stitches that alternate to form a subtle texture as you work the body from one point to the other. Adding waves along the border seemed natural, and working into the back loops only on every other row creates a slight ridged effect that’s reminiscent of waves cresting atop one another.

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a video on how to set up the stitch markers for the border edging.
  • The size is not easily adjustable, but you can go up or down a hook size to adjust the size, if you prefer.
  • Gauge is not crucial to this project, but it will affect yardage and overall size. 
  • This pattern uses four colors, but it can be made with more or fewer if you prefer. 
  • You may find it easier to weave in most of the yarn tails prior to working the edging.
  • Set up your border stitches using removable stitch markers (optional). Fold the shawl body in half vertically to determine the center point, which should be around the area of Rows 81-82. Place a marker at the center point on the shaped edge. Place markers at Row 64 and Row 100 on the shaped edge. Place 6 additional markers approximately the same distance apart along shaped edge. You will work 17 sc between markers.

The projects seem excellent! I was just wondering it it would be possible for yout to send some sort or drawing on the scheme of the projects, in order to get the stiches right instead of just reading. Sometimes it becomes easier seing!

I’ve not started this shawl yet, but have reviewed the pattern. The texture is created with basic stitches, as are the increases and decreases. The only tricky part is setting up the border and there is a video to walk you through that. I’m looking forward to this project!

Hello Chandi. I love all your patterns and started on some, but found that the type of yarn I had was crocheting stiff and not flowy. I live in East Africa and mostly use cotton /acrylic yarn. I've found yarn perfect for the design but have to purchase more- from UK / Europe...When I complete a piece I will be better placed to give an honest review. Best Regards, Winnie

Loved the idea of a shawl and hat set. Instructions are clear and photos show details really well. I have several EFA patterns now. They are my prized possessions. Thanks.
