If you’re looking for a shawl that is easy to make and looks beautiful, the Everyday Shawl is the one for you. That’s what I was looking for when I made this. The trick is to use gorgeous yarn, and everything else falls into place :). To make this, I used 1 whole skein of Hobbii Twister in Blue Velvet Lace (#38). One skein is 1,094 yards. The plan was just to continue until I used the whole skein. With a 3.5mm hook, the finished size ended up being approx. 60″ across, 28″ from top to tip. (You can use any hook size as long as it goes with the yarn weight.) The end result is a lovely shawl to complete your outfit on a chilly day. Here’s how it’s made:
ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMS)
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
st/sts = stitch/stitches
ch(s) = chain(s)
sk = skip or skipped
slp st = slip stitch
Start with a magic circle, then ch 4. The ch 4 always counts as a stitch. (If you chain loosely, you can do a ch 3. I prefer ch 4 to keep the shawl edge from curling upwards.)
ROW 1 – Place 2 more dc in the circle, chain 2, then 3 put dc in the circle. (Tighten the magic circle so that the dc on the end form a straight line.) Chain 4 and turn. (6 sts, 2 chs)
ROW 2 – Place 2 dc in the same stitch as the chain. *Skip 1 stitch. Dc in the next stitch. Dc in the skipped stitch.* Repeat from * to * until you reach the ch 2. In the ch 2, put 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc. Then repeat from * to * until the end. Place 3 dc into the last stitch (which is the top of the chain 4 of the previous row). Ch 4 and turn. (14 sts, 2 chs)
ROW 3 – Place 2 dc in the same stitch as the chain. Dc in each stitch until you reach the chain 2. In the ch 2, put 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc. Dc in each stitch until the last stitch. Place 3 dc into the last stitch (which is the top of the ch 4 of the previous row). Ch 4 and turn. (22 sts, 2 chains)
ROW 4 until the end – repeat rows 2 and 3. (With each row, the stitch count increases by 8 and 2 chs). Fasten off, weave in the ends and enjoy!
