I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (38) »
I saw so many gorgeous knitted shawls out there that I would love to knit, but somehow I could not find a crocheted shawl pattern that I would like to make. So, I decided to design my own crocheted shawl. I made 2 versions of this shawl. One is a scarf (smaller) and the other one is a shawl (bigger). I hope you will enjoy making this pattern!
Jagerspun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18 Lace weight (held double)
1200 m for scarf and 4000 m for Shawl
Hook: 3.5 mm (E)
Scarf: 47" across top edge, 23" long from centre top to point
Shawl: 84" across top edge, 40" long from centre top to point
Pattern is a full colour, 7 pages in PDF. Complete with symbols and diagram (like the one you always find in Japanese pattern book) beside the written instruction.
All posts about this project can be found here.
First 10 rows = 12" across top edge, 6" long from centre top to point (after blocking).
I put beads on every bobbles for the blue shawl. As for the black shawl I put glass beads on the last row only (the one you see in the picture is not picots, it's beads).
I am 5'4".
