Recently a friend and I took a trip to my favorite yarn shop. She’s a knitter and I a crocheter, and we had lots of fun shopping the shelves and putting together a lovely collection of yarns for projects we plan on gifting. As we were leaving, it occurred to me I rarely make myself anything. Just as this thought was formulating a pretty ball of yarn caught my eye. There was only one left and it was in shades of my favorite color, so naturally, it was meant to be — I snatched it up immediately!
Lang Yarns Jawoll Magic Dégradé, is a fingering weight, wool/nylon blend, that comes in beautiful blended, self striping colors. The colorway I chose has more muted tones, however, the full range of colors varies from brighter to muted tones. I enjoyed working this yarn and was thrilled to get a generously sized shawlette from just one ball.
The shawlette is a very easy V stitch repeat with a simple shell border. I love wearing it tied or with a decorative pin and it looks great over a blouse as an accessory or worn as a scarf for a little extra warmth.
I like to think of this pattern as a “recipe” rather than a strict pattern. You can change up the yarn weight and hook size for many different variations. Simply work the beginning chain in a multiple of 6 + 5 and then follow the pattern sequence until you have a point. Add the border and you are done!
Size: Approximately 58″ x 16″ – easily adjusted
- Fingering weight yarn, I used Lang Jawoll Magic Dégradé, 437 yards in 100 gram ball – 1 ball. **You may use another weight yarn, however, you will have to adjust the hook size, yardage and beginning chain to achieve the desired finished dimensions
- Hook US I/5.50 mm
- Yarn needle for weaving ends
Gauge is not critical in this pattern however I got approximately 6 VSt x 10 Rows = 4”
Abbreviations (US Terms):
dc: double crochet
sc: single crochet
sl st: slip stitch
VSt = dc, ch1, dc in same stitch or space
- Stitch count is in ( ) at end of row.
- Weave ends as you work.
This is a very open, lacy shawl with a scalloped edge. The shawl is worked from the top to the point. It can be made as large or small as you desire by changing the beginning stitch multiple.
The stitch multiple is 6 + 5.
Row 1: Ch 233, dc in 5th ch from hook (skipped chains count as a dc and ch1), *skip 2 chs, VSt in next ch*; repeat between * to last ch. (77 VSts)
Row 2: Turn, sl st into first dc, sl st into next ch1 space, ch 4 (counts as dc and ch1 throughout), dc in same ch1 space, VSt into ch1 space of each VSt to end. (77 VSts)
Row 3: Turn, sl st across first VSt and next dc and into center of 2nd VSt, ch 4, dc in same ch1 space, VSt into ch1 space of each VSt until there is one remaining, leave last VSt unworked. (75 VSts)
Repeat Row 3 until there are 3 VSts remaining.
Last Row: Turn, sl st across first VSt and next dc and into center VSt, ch 4, dc in same ch1 space. Fasten off.
Edge (worked around entire shawlette): Join yarn in corner at top of shawlette (you will be working along the opposite side of the beginning chain),
ch1, sc in each ch to end of top;
ch3, turn to work down side toward point, 4dc in side of last sc made, *work 5 dc into ch1 space of the last VSt in the next row*; repeat between * to point;
5 dc in ch1 space of VSt at point; working toward the top of the shawlette repeat between * to last VSt,
5 dc in side of first sc of round.
