Lake Shawl

06.Feb.18 / Kirsten Ballering

The lake shawl is inspired by pictures of beautiful sunsets on the great lakes of the world! The motif creates a star shape and triangles when joined in the corners. The shawl is approximately 170cm (67in) wide and 60cm (22in) high after blocking. The crochet pattern is suitable for all skill levels and is written in UK terms. On the left you see the Stone Washed version, and on the right you see the River Washed version. Special thanks go out to my testers Anci and Marieke, who tested the pattern thoroughly!

The pattern for the Lake Shawl is also available as a print-friendly, styled and advertisement free PDF in the Haak maar Raak shop.

Colour Placement Stone Washed version

Colour Placement River Washed version

* The numbers in the stars represent the order in which they are joined. Start with 1 on the bottom of the triangle shape. Next, join 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on. Pay special attention to where star 5, 12, 22 etc. is located (i.e. most left star in a row).

And here is the colour placement chart again, if you prefer tables:

Crochet pattern

Single Motif

With Colour A, make a magic ring.

Round 1 Ch3, tr2tog (counts as first tr3tog), ch3, (tr3tog, ch3) 5 times, ss in 3rd ch of beg-ch. Fasten off. [6 tr3tog-clusters, 6 ch3-sps]

Round 2 Join Contrast Colour in ch3-sp with ss, (ch3, tr2tog (counts as first tr3tog), ch1, tr3tog) in ch3-sp, ch6, ss in 3rd ch of 6 ch, ch3, *(tr3tog, ch1, tr3tog) in ch3-sp, ch6, ss in 3rd ch of 6 ch, ch3; repeat from * 4 times more, join with ss in 3rd ch of beg-ch. Fasten off. [6 tr3tog-clusters, 6 ch-sps]

Joining

Repeat motif pattern for all next motifs. The colours are distributed semi-random. For guidance, see the colour placement diagram below. Join motifs in rows from left to right, but keep in mind that the most left motif in a row is joined last, because otherwise there won’t be any ch3-sps to join to. For clarification, see the number sequence in the colour placement diagram.

You are joining your motifs in the ch3-sps that are made in each corner. To join, follow the instructions for Round 2 of the motif. Whenever you reach a corner that needs to be joined to another corner replace ‘ch6, ss in 3rd ch of 6ch’ with ‘ch4, ss in ch3-sp of adjacent motif(s), ch2, ss in 2nd ch from hook’ to form a join to other motifs and create the ch3-sp in the motif you’re working on. This might look tedious at first but will become easier once you continue your shawl. For joining points, see the border diagram. Join ss are represented as big dots between motifs corners.
