Time to Complete: Longer than a weekend

 

Primary Technique: Crochet

 

Advanced

 

Materials:

  • 861-100 Lion Brand Vanna's Glamour: Diamond - 8 Balls
  • Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size G-6 (4mm)
  • Lion Brand Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)
  • Sewing needle and white thread
  • Small silver heart charm or button

 

Measurements:

About 23 x 58 in. (58.5 x 147.5 cm), at widest points, not including edging.

 

Abbreviations:

beg = begin(s)(ning)

ch(s) = chain(s)

ch-space = space previously made

rep = repeat(s)(ing)

RS = right side

sc = single crochet

sk = skip

sl st = slip stitch

sp(s) = space(s)

st(s) = stitch(es)

 

Gauge: 2 Crocodile sts (see pattern for explanation) = about 4 in. (10 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

 

Stitch Explanation:

 

Edc (extended double crochet)

Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st, yarn over and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 1 loop on hook, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice.

 

V-st (V-stitch)

(Edc, ch 1, Edc) in indicated st.

 

Crocodile st

Note: Each Crocodile st is worked over 2 Edc sts.

Rotate piece so that you can work around the post of the last Edc made (this is the 2nd Edc of a V-st), work 6 Edc around the post of the last Edc made, ch 1, rotate piece so that you can work around the post of the next Edc (this is the 1st Edc of the same V-st), work 6 Edc around the post of the next Edc.

 

Notes:

  1. Shawl is worked from lower back point upwards in Crocodile and V-sts. Sts are increased on each to create a triangle.
  2. Rows of V-sts are alternated with rows of Crocodile sts.
  3. Crocodile sts are made by working sts around the post of sts in the previous row.
  4. The piece is NOT turned at the beg of rows. Instead, at the beginning of EACH row, rotate the piece, keeping the RS facing you, so that you work back and forth across the RS of the piece.
  5. A charm or button is sewed to the Shawl and can be pulled through the sts to fasten the Shawl.
