Pattern Info

Gauge: 12 rows and 16 sc = 4” as pattern repeats

Completed Dimensions: 14 x 47”

Pattern Size: One size fits most

Skill level: 2 Easy (some crochet experience necessary)

Necessary Skills: basic stitches, repetitive stitch patterns, simple color changes

Notes

Stitches worked on the bias (as you work the piece will slant making a rhombus shape instead of a rectangle). To make piece wider you need to add chains (multiple of 2), to make the piece longer you can repeat the color pattern a second time (or a 1234567654321 row repeat with the 7 rows of T-st in the middle).

IMPORTANT: The “ch-1” at the beginning of a sc row does NOT count as a stitch (initial chains do count as stitches with taller stitches: a ch-2 counts as one hdc, ch-3 counts as one dc, etc. when a pattern indicates) Ch 1 at the beg of the row and work your first sc in the same st as the ch. If you do not do this, your shawl will not be worked on the bias.
