Yay! The Autumn Jewels Wrap CAL has started! Part 1 provides the base to work the lace from. This section is worked from side to side in a “filet crochet” like stitch that creates an open weave look. The shaping is made by working increases on one side of the work, while keeping the other side straight.
Be sure to join us in the Pattern Paradise Crochet Community for the crochet along and for a chance to win prizes (see the details below)!

This is the second time I’ve teamed up with KT & The Squid to bring you a CAL project with custom dyed yarn. You can see our first project, the Spring Showers Shawl, HERE. For the Autumn Jewels Wrap, Katy custom dyed three beautiful, rich jewel toned colorways, and the yarn is exquisite! It is called Squid Singles and is a 100% superwash merino that comes in 100 gram balls (approximately 437 yards/399 meters). You’ll find this yarn is a super soft, dainty fingering/sock weight. It feels slinky on the skin and has wonderful drape. The base that Katy uses is worsted spun which means it is durable and less likely to pill and makes the yarn more breathable even in warmer climates. You can feel good about this yarn for another reason too; Katy sources all of her yarn products from farms that are cruelty free.

Gauge is not critical for this pattern, but I got 25 sts x 14 rows in swatch stitch (below) = 4” with a 4.00 mm hook.
Gauge Swatch – Use Hook US G/4.00 mm:
Row 1: Ch32, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each remaining ch to end. (31)
Row 2: Ch3 (counts as dc) turn, [ch1, skip 1, dc in next st], repeat between [ ] to end. (31)
Row 3: Ch1, turn, sc in each dc and ch1 space to end. (31)
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures approximately 5”.
Compare number of stitches in a 4” square to the pattern gauge and adjust hook as necessary.

dc = double crochet
hdc= half double crochet
sc = single crochet

This is a lovely wrap and I love the crescent shape! I am wondering how to increase the base part to make the wrap wider. I see you said: “It has a wingspan of approximately 56″ and it’s about 21″ at the deepest point, but of course, it is easy to adjust and I’ve given you some suggestion in the pattern too.”
I am missing your suggestions for adjusting. I know it has been over a year since you wrote this pattern, but, do you recall how to adjust the width of the base?
Hi there. Yes you can make the the base longer for a larger wingspan by adjusting the the number of repeats of Rows 90 and 91. Be sure to do it in increments that will give you the correct stitch multiple for Row 1 of the lace (10 + 7).
I would like a written version of the Skylar Afghan pattern as I am deaf and can’t follow the video. I tried to find it but couldnt. I would appreciate. Thank you. Dee
Hi there. I don’t have a video for the Skylar Blanket. The free pattern is posted on my website here: https://pattern-paradise.com/2018/05/18/free-crochet-pattern-skylar-blanket/
If you prefer an ad-free PDF you can download and print, it is available for a small fee on Ravelry: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/skylar-blanket
I like the pattern and want to make this but don’t understand how at the widest point there are only 51 stitches for phase 1?That’s what’s in parenthesis at the end of row 105. Something doesn’t feel right. 50 stitches is nothing for the widest point.
That section is worked side to side, so the stitch count is actually the height at that point not the wingspan.

Hello – By chance do you have any photos to accompany the CAL, shawl? I am not maintaining the proper stitch count and I know if I saw images of the two sides of the shawl, I would be able to figure out where I am going wrong.
Hmm, the photos I have are already included in the pattern on my blog. I do have a stitch chart that is part of the ad-free PDF available for purchase on Ravelry. The key to the increases is that they are only happening every other row and they happen on the same side of the shawl – so one side is straight and the other side bows out. Does that help?
