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) »
For the Shawl Kit you can buy it at my website or my etsy store. It's only USD 29 shipped.
Piquant is a crescent shaped crocheted shawl work in one piece using a single precious skein. This shawl has a very interesting construction. I designed it to avoid long starting chains. This shawl is very easy and quick to do and has a breathtaking result. Instruction come in 2 sizes, small and large, but you can easily adjust the size.
Technical Editor: Chaitanya Muralidhara
Yarn: Rendezvous Yarn 100% Merino Superwash (Teal color) light fingering weight 1 skein (100g, 490 yards) for small size. You need 2 skeins for large size. See yarn usage percentage for each part in page 2.
Note: The sample in green is small size, in plum color is large size. I used 1x100 gram yarn and had 15 gram leftover for the small size and used 2x100 gram yarn and had 35 gram leftover for the large size. I am a very tight crocheter, please prepare more yarn.
Yarn is available in my etsy shop
Hook: 3.75 mm (F) (adjust hook size accordingly if you use thicker yarn)
Notions: Removable stitch markers for crochet
Gauge: You need about 250 cm of yarn to make Part A rows 1- 3.
So, you need to measure your yarn about 2.5 meter or 2.75 yards. No need to cut the yarn, just mark it.
With this 2.75 yards yarn, you try to crochet the first 3 rows of part A.
If you need more than 2.75 yards to crochet the first 3 rows, it means you need more yarn than the yarn requirement.
If you need less than 2.75 yards to crochet the first 3 rows, it means you need less yarn than the yarn requirement.
Or you can adjust your hook size to meet the gauge.
I know this kind of gauge is different than usual. The reason why I "invented" this kind of gauge is because for shawl, size doesn't matters or not so crucial. What matters is that you have enough yarn.
Finished Size: 128 cm (50.4") wingspan and 35 cm (13.8") depth.
