Melange Crochet Shawl
300g of mélange Novita Nalle Taika yarn (75% wool, 25% polyamide; 260m/100g);
100g of white mélange Novita Nalle yarn (75% wool, 25% polyamide; 260m/100g);
Crochet hook 3,5-4.
Size: 150 x 70 cm.
Stitches control: width of central part of shawl = 13 cm, 10 rows = 12,5 cm.
Make 29 chain sts and work with relief pattern due to the scheme 1 in the following way:
1st row: 2 double crochets in the 3rd chain st from the crochet hook, skip 2 sts of the initial chain, 1 single crochet in the next st, 5 chain sts, skip 5 sts of set-up chain, 1 single crochet in the next st, * skip 2 sts of initial chain, 5 double crochets in the next st, skip 2 sts of set-up chain, 1 single crochet in the next st, 5 chain sts, skip 5 sts of set-up chain, 1 single crochet in the next st*; repeat from * to * x once, skip 2 sts of set-up chain, 3 double crochets in the last st.
Continue work due to the scheme 1 from the 2nd row. Repeat 2nd-5th rows x 21 times, after that, make 2nd-3rd rows x once. The height of central part is about 70 cm. Don’t cut the yarn.
Right Side Part
Continue work along the long side of central part due to the scheme 2. Make double crochets in the 1st row in order to make 6 double crochets every 4 rows. Increase 8 double crochets = 141 sts. Continue work due to the scheme 2 from the 2nd row, make decreases in every row from left side, as it’s shown on the scheme, until 1 square is left (3 crochets). Cut the yarn.
Left Side Part
Join the yarn to the left long edge of the central part and work in symmetry to the right side. When there is 1 square left (3 sts), don’t cut the yarn, make 1 row of single crochets along the edge of shawl. Then, cut the yarn.
For fringe, cut the yarn to the threads of 45 cm long, connect in 6 threads, fold in half. Make tassels in every 3 cm along short edges of shawl.
