Walden is a triangular shawl crocheted from the neck down. It can be worked to any size, but both versions shown take only one skein of sock yarn. Version I is crocheted with a sport weight yarn in a textured half double crochet pattern. Version II is worked with a fingering weight yarn in a double crochet pattern at a looser gauge for a lacier look. Two edging variations are provided and both shawls are reversible. Quick and easy to work, they make the perfect choice for gifts, especially when paired with a soft luxurious yarn.
Gauge After Blocking
Version I: 12.5 hdc / 10.5 rows = 4in / 10cm
Version II: 11 dc / 7.5 rows = 4in / 10cm
Gauge is not critical for this project
I engage in many crafts including knitting, spinning, crochet, quilting, sewing, and embroidery. My husband and I are permitted to co-exist with our three cats, our dog, and my crafting supplies.
I have had knitting patterns published in Knotions, Knitcircus, and Interweave Knits Accessories, and the Fresh Designs book series.
