Notes From the Designer:
A simple, beginner level stitch pattern combined with beautiful yarn makes for sure success! This design is very customizable, since it may be made in the color-shifting hues as shown or in a monochromatic gradient or solid color. Make this shawl in any size you choose simply by changing the number of stitches or blocks that you create.
- Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial demonstrating how to make the shawl and how to block it.
- Making a gauge swatch is critical to achieve the desired results. I used to think that I “always worked to gauge.” However, it finally dawned on me that what I was really assuming was that I work to the same gauge as the person who designed the pattern. Believe me, that is a bad assumption. Please DO NOT assume that you crochet to the same gauge as I do! I have learned that I tend to crochet on the “tight” end of the spectrum, so do not be surprised if you need to go down a hook size (or 2!). Yes, it is an extra step, but it also assures you that what you are crocheting will produce what you expect. And you won’t need to worry about running out of yarn.
- To alter the length of the wrap, change the number of solid blocks or the number of rows in each block.
- To help keep track of when to switch from dc to hdc, place a stitch marker at the start of each even row under the sc where the first hdc occurs. This eliminates having to count as you are working the row. On R12, you may also wish to place a marker where the row ends.
- When introducing a new color, work the final hdc as: yo, insert hook into st, yo and draw up a loop, yo with new color, and pull though all 3 loops on hook.
