This stunning shawl will rival the drape and elegance of any knit shawl, but it’s crochet! Using simple stitches, this shawl features growing squares that create a fun geometric pattern. See the Tobias Ravelry page for pictures of how to wear this dramatic, yet simple, design.
This pattern uses only a couple stitches throughout, so this class is a great opportunity to learn more about chart reading, the importance of gauge, keeping your stitches consistent, and using lace weight yarn and small hooks.
- Yarn: 3 skeins of lace-weight, at least 2520 yards
- Hook: Size US B (2.5mm) or whatever size hook you need to obtain gauge
Shop sample worked with 3 skeins of Madelinetosh Prairie in colorway Arctic.
Please purchase your supplies prior to class day. There is pre-work for this class.
Check gauge! **NOTE: The gauge is critically important in this pattern. For the sample, it used every inch of those 3 skeins (assuming a 5-6 inch tail when beginning and ending each skein) and there was nothing left over!**
Gauge: 31 stitches and 16 rows = 4 inches in double crochet
Start the shawl. Ch 212
Row 1: Double crochet in the 4th ch from the hook, double crochet in each chain across.
