(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Tendrillon

Pattern Description:

English ten-dril (t?n'dr?l) -noun Botany.
a threadlike, leafless organ of climbing plants, often growing in spiral form, which attaches itself to or twines round some other body, so as to support the plant.

Tendrillon is a lacy shrug perfect for dressing up even the plainest tops or dresses. It can be made in fingering/4ply, DK/8 ply or worsted/10 ply yarn. It's a recipe style pattern that can be made to fit any size and shape. With a few measurements and simple calculations, you will be able to create a custom-fitted garment.


Gauge is not important for this design. Your own personal "gauge" is used to create a custom fit right from the starting chain.


  • The stitch pattern in this design is best suited to a yarn with some memory such as wool, wool-blends or cotton/nylon/acrylic-blends. Other yarns may be substituted, but this may affect the appearance of the lace pattern and the overall fit.
  • Worsted/10ply and 5.5 and 5.00mm hooks (heavy worsted is not recommended)
  • DK/8ply yarn and 4.5 and 4.00mm hooks
  • Fingering/Sport weight/4ply and 3.5 and 3.00mm hooks
  • Yardage requirements will depend on the type of yarn chosen and the finished size. It is worth noting that the cabled lace design is rather "yarn-hungry."

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle
  • Tape measure
