  • crochet stitches: chain, single-crochet

Pattern Description:

If you enjoyed creating my Handpaint Scarf, you will love creating this wonderful shawl/scarf. A bold center cable framed by two rows of lacy cables and a clover lace pattern are the focal point of this beautiful Irish knit inspired shawlette. The crocheted cloverleaf edging adds a whimsical Irish touch. I love combining knitting and crochet in the same project. Both have a unique rhythm as they are created. The cable and lace patterns are very simple and after working a repeat of the three main patterns they are easily memorized. Once the shawl is complete, the simple crocheted edging is a nice change of rhythm for the stitcher and is completed in a single row of work. If you are a knitter that has never tried crochet, I hope this project will inspire you to give it a try since it uses only two different crochet stitches.
Make this shawlette in DK yarn (green shawlette shown in photos) for the perfect weight to wrap around your shoulders or swirl around your neck a few times when you need some extra warmth. Knit one in sock/fingering weight yarn (pale gray shawlette shown in photos) for a smaller, more delicate shawlette that you can wear more like a scarf.


For DK yarn: 4 sts and 7.5 rows per inch (2.5cm) (unblocked); 3.5 sts and 7 rows per inch (blocked)
For sock or fingering yarn: 5.5 sts and 9.5 rows per inch (2.5cm) (unblocked)
(Instructions for making a gauge swatch using the stitch pattern on the ends of the shawlette are given in the pattern)
