Details & Instructions

MEASUREMENTS

Shawl measures approximately 64" [162.5 cm] across top edge x 25" [63.5 cm] long (back length).

MATERIALS

Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) (85 g/3. oz;153 m/167 yds)
Plumish (00005) 4
Size 6 mm (U.S. J-10) crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge. Yarn needle.

GAUGE

12 Fsc = 4" [10 cm] In lace pattern, 1 pattern repeat = 3½" [9 cm] (measured from center of V-st to center of next V-st) and 6 rows = 4" [10 cm] (measured from base of V-st to base of next V-st directly above). Note: The gauge is “as crocheted". The shawl will lengthen and the lace will open up when blocked and worn.

INSTRUCTIONS

Notes: • For a winged shape, increases are worked at center back and, at the same time, decreases are worked at beginning and end of each row. This results in the same number of pattern repeats across each row. • The lace pattern works over a multiple of 10 stitches + 1 (e.g. 111, 131, etc. stitches). The shawl has the same number of lace pattern repeats on each side of a center repeat. To adjust the size of the shawl, work a foundation chain that is a multiple of 20 sts (10 sts on each side of center) + 10 sts (for center repeat) + 1. Fsc 191, to measure approximately 63" [160 cm]; turn foundation over so sc edge is on top, begin work across sc edge.
Row 1: Ch 1, sc in first sc, sc in next sc, [ch 3, sk next 3 sc, V-st in next sc, ch 3, sk next 3 sc, sc in next 3 sc] 9 times, ch 3, sk next 3 sc, V-st in next sc, place marker in ch-sp of last V-st made (for center back), [ch 3, sk next 3 sc, sc in next 3 sc, ch 3, sk next 3 sc, V-st in next sc] 9 times, ch 3, sk next 3 sc, sc in last 2 sc, turn—19 V-sts. Move marker up as work progresses, keeping it at center back at all times.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc, [ch 4, shell in ch-2 sp of next V-st, ch 4, sk next sc, sc in next sc] 9 times (to center back), ch 4, 10 dc in ch-2 sp of center back V-st (increase made), [ch 4, sk next sc, sc in next sc, ch 4, shell in ch-2 sp of next V-st] 8 times, ch 4, sk next sc, sc in next sc, ch 4, 4 dc in ch-2 sp of last V-st; to complete last shell, work last dc of shell and a dtr together, as follows: yarn over, insert hook in same ch-2 sp, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops remain on hook), [yarn over] 3 times (5 loops on hook), sk next sc, insert hook in last sc, yarn over and draw up a loop, [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] 3 times, yarn over and draw through remaining 3 loops on hook turn—18 shells and 10-dc increase shell at center back.
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first st, sc in next 4 dc, [ch 7, sc in next 5 dc] 8 times (to center back), ch 7, sc in first 5 dc of center back shell, ch 4, sc in remaining 5 dc of center back shell, [ch 7, sc in next 5 dc] 9 times, turn; leave last ch-sp and sc unworked—18 ch-7 sps, and 1 ch-4 sp at center back.
Row 4: Sl st in first sc, ch 1, sc in next 3 sc, [ch 3, V-st in next ch-7 sp, ch 3, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc] 9 times (to center back), ch 3, V-st in next ch-4 sp, center back marker should now be in ch-sp of V-st just made, ch 3, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc, [ch 3, V-st in next ch-7 sp, ch 3, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc] 9 times, turn; leave remaining sts unworked—19 V-sts.
Row 5: Sl st in first sc, ch 1, sc in next sc, [ch 4, shell in ch-2 sp of next V-st, ch 4, sk next sc, sc in next sc] 9 times (to center back), ch 4, 10 dc in ch-2 sp of center back V-st (increase made), [ch 4, sk next sc, sc in next sc, ch 4, shell in ch-2 sp of next V-st] 8 times, ch 4, sk next sc, sc in next sc, ch 4, 4 dc in ch-2 sp of last V-st; to complete last shell, work last dc of shell and a dtr together, work as follows: yarn over, insert hook in same ch-2 sp, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops remain on hook), [yarn over] 3 times (5 loops on hook), sk next sc, insert hook in next sc, yarn over and draw up a loop, [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] 3 times, yarn over and draw through remaining 3 loops on hook (dtr edge counts as ch-4 sp and sc), turn—18 shells and 10-dc increase shell at center back.
Rows 6-29: Repeat Rows 3–5 eight more times.
Row 30: Repeat Row 3. Fasten off.
FINISHING
Edging
Note: Work finishing rows across sides and lower edge of wing shape, from one end of foundation to other end of foundation.
Turn after last row, join yarn with sl st in sc row edge of Fsc, begin working across row edges of first shaped side. A “tall row edge" is a row edge that either begins with sc, ch-4 or ends with a dc/dtr worked together.
Row 1: Ch 1, sc in same sc row edge, sc in next sc row edge, [ch 7, sk next tall row edge, work 3 sc evenly spaced across next group of short shaped row edges] 9 times, ch 7, sk last tall row edge; working across sts of Row 30, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc, [ch 7, sk next ch-7 sp, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc] 9 times (to center back), ch 7, sk ch-4 sp at center back, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc, [ch 7, sk next ch-7 sp, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc] 9 times; working across row edges of other shaped side, [ch 7, sk next tall row edge, work 3 sc evenly spaced across the next group of short shaped row edges] 9 times, ch 7, sk last ch-4 sp, sk next sc row edge, sc in next sc row edge, sc in Fsc row edge, turn—39 ch-7 sps.
Row 2: Ch 1, (sc, ch 3, sc) in first sc, [ch 4, spike-sc in next ch-sp, ch 4, sk next sc, (sc, ch 3, sc) in next sc] 39 times. Fasten off.
Using yarn needle, weave in all ends. Block shawl to finished measurements.
