This is the free crochet pattern for the Vintage Sweet Shawl. The pattern is separated in two parts: The shawl, and the edging. I’ve made the shawl with Invicta Extra made by Scheepjeswol (avaible at Woolwarehouse). The shawl measures approx. 1,50 m from end to end and 75 cm from basis to point. You’ll need the following colours:
- 3 skeins lila (colour 1462)
- 3 skeins brown (colour 1419)
Furthermore, I’ve used a 4.0mm crochet hook, and of course scissors and a darning needle.
Stitches and terms used (US terms):
- chain (ch)
- slip stitch (ss)
- single crochet (sc)
- double crochet (dc)
- chain space (ch-sp)
- picot (ch2, put needle through first ch, yarn over, pull needle back through all loops on hook).
Start with 4ch, ss the last one to the first ch.
R1 (RS): Crochet 4ch, (counts as first dc + 1ch), dc3, ch3, dc3, ch1, dc1 (photo 1).
What you’ll see is that you’re making granny clusters consisting of 3dc, with 1ch in between. The point of the shawl is made using 3ch. The single dc’s on the beginning and end of each row are to increase your granny clusters in the next round.
R2 (WS): Turn your work. Crochet 4ch (counts as first dc +1ch), dc3 in the ch-1 sp of the previous round, ch1, dc3 in the ch-3 sp of the previous round, ch3, dc3 in the ch-3 sp of the previous round, ch1, dc3, ch1, dc1.
R3-47: Repeat round 2, and increase a granny cluster in the ch-1 sp at the beginning and end of every row.
I haven’t made all 47 rows for this tutorial, only a tiny swatch. It has to look like this (photo 2):
R 48-55: After 47 rounds you’ll switch to brown. Attach the brown in the ch-1 sp, ch4, dc3 in the same ch-1 sp and continue as usual (photo 3). Fasten off after row 55.
R 56: Attach brown with a ss to the dc with which you ended row 55. sc in the same dc, ch4, skip 1 granny cluster, sc in the next ch-1 sp (photo 4). *ch4, sc in next ch-1 sp*, repeat between ** untill you’ve reached the point of the shawl. sc in the ch-3 sp, ch4, sc in the same ch-3 sp. You effectively crochet an extra point-loop. Continue with the *ch4, sc in next ch-1sp* untill you’ve reached the far end of the shawl. End the row with a sc in the 3th ch of the beg-ch4.
R 57: ch5 (counts as ch3 plus ch2 for a half loop). sc in the ch-4 loop of the previous round. *ch4, sc in next ch-4 loop*, repeat between ** until you’ve reached to point. Just as in row 56, crochet an extra point-loop. repeat between ** untill you’ve reached the far end. ch2, dc in the sc with which you’ve started row 56 (photo 5). Fasten off.
R 58: Turn your work and attach the brown yarn with a ss to the dc with which you’ve ended row 57. *(dc4, picot dc4) in the next ch-4 loop, sc in the next ch-4 loop*, repeat between ** until you’ve reached the point of the shawl (photo 6). after you’ve made a sc in the point-loop,(dc4, picot, dc4) in the point-loop, and sc in the same loop. Then resume between ** until you have reached the end of the shawl. End the row with a sc in the last ch-5 loop with which you’ve started row 57 (photo 7).
