one skein crochet shawl



Materials:
  • 1 skein Caron International One Pound Yarn in Cream (100% acrylic; 16 oz/454 g, 812 yds/742 m)
  • US N-15 (10mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge
  • Yarn needle
     
Size: Wrap measures approximately 24"/61cm wide x 68"/172.5cm long
 
Gauge:  In pattern, 3 pattern repeats = 16"/40.5cm and 7 rows = 8"/20.5cm. Note: One pattern repeat forms one "wave", and includes one dc7tog, 6 tr, and the ch-1 sps between them.

Special Terms:
  • dc2tog: Double crochet 2 together—[Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] 2 times, yarn over and draw through 3 loops on hook.
  • dc3tog: Double crochet 3 together—[Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] 3 times, yarn over and draw through 4 loops on hook.
  • dc4tog: Double crochet 4 together—[Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] 4 times, yarn over and draw through 5 loops on hook.
  • dc7tog: Double crochet 7 together—[Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] 7 times, yarn over and draw through 8 loops on hook.

Notes:
  • Wrap is worked horizontally (lengthwise). 
  • For a longer or shorter wrap, work more or fewer beginning chains in multiples of 12. Each multiple of 12 will lengthen or shorten the wrap by about 2"/5cm.
  • For a wider or narrower wrap, work more or fewer repeats of Rows 2 and 3.


Instructions:
  1. Ch 159 loosely.
     
  2. Row 1: Dc3tog working over 4th ch from hook and next 2 ch, ch 1, [tr in next ch, ch 1] twice, (tr, ch 1, tr) in next ch, [ch 1, tr in next ch] twice, ch 1, *dc7tog over next 7 ch, ch 1, [tr in next ch, ch 1] twice, (tr, ch 1, tr) in next ch, [ch 1, tr in next ch] twice, ch 1; repeat from * to last 4 ch, dc4tog over last 4 ch, turn—13 pattern repeats.
     
  3. Row 2: Ch 3, dc in next ch-1 sp, [dc in next tr, dc in next ch-1 sp] 5 times, dc in next tr, *dc2tog over next 2 ch-1 sps (skipping the dc7tog in between), dc in next tr, dc in next ch-1 sp] 5 times, dc in next tr; repeat from * across to last ch-1 sp, dc2tog over last ch-1 sp and last dc3tog, turn.
     
  4. Row 3: Ch 3, sk first dc2tog, dc3tog over next 3 dc, ch 1, [tr in next dc, ch 1] twice, (tr, ch 1, tr) in next dc, [ch 1, tr in next dc] twice, ch 1, *dc7tog over next 7 dc, ch 1, [tr in next dc, ch 1] twice, (tr, ch 1, tr) in next dc, [ch 1, tr in next dc] twice, ch 1; repeat from * to last 4 dc, dc4tog over last 4 dc, turn.
     
  5. Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures 24"/61cm wide (or to desired width). Fasten off.
     
  6. To make fringe, cut remaining yarn into strands 14–16"/35.5–40.5cm long. Holding 2 strands together, fold fringe in half. *Insert crochet hook from WS to RS in side edge of wrap, pull fold through, insert ends into fold and pull tight against edge; repeat from *, working across side edge. Repeat across other side edge.
     
  7. Optional (knotted fringe): Draw one end of the 2 strands all the way through the piece, folding the strands in half, until all 4 ends are even, tie an overhand knot about 1"/2cm from side edge.
