Basic Skills Necessary:

  • chain
  • single crochet
  • double crochet

Pattern Description:

The Italian Ice Shawl is crocheted from the top down, to form a half-circle shape, & can be made using any weight yarn/hook combination, & works up very quickly. This is an advanced beginner pattern. The simple stitch pattern really makes yarn choice very important, so make sure you pick a yarn you really love!

Shawl will need severe blocking in order to form a perfect half-circle shape, and as such be sure to use a fiber that will block well.

The edging is only one row & is the hardest part of the shawl, but once you "get it" will go quickly. The edging is charted to make things even easier.

Edging uses approximately 1/3 of the yarn.

I crochet loosely; most crocheters will need to go up 1-2 hook sizes. Work a nice, loose, drapey gauge, & you will be happy with your finished shawl!

Thanks to brendac4u, troubleagain, ramhist, & honeystalks for testing the shawl, & many thanks to Susan Moskwa (http://www.rogueedits.com) for her tech editing skills! Thanks to my dad for naming the shawl. This pattern would not have been possible without all of you.

Feel free to make as many of these as you like for local craft fairs/auctions/raffles/bazaars, but please do not sell finished items online. . If making for charity, please let me know the name of the charity & include my contact info with the item (http://anastaciaknits.net).
