Fresh Green Crochet Shawl
75g of neon-green (# 32) Silkhair Lana Grossa yarn (70% mohair, 30% silk; 210m/25g);
75g of the same yarn, but in apple-green color (#51);
75g of the same yarn, but in khaki color (#60);
75g of the same yarn, but in emerald color (# 65);
Crochet hook 6.
Size: 236 х 48 cm.
Note: work in 4 threads of yarn. Make striped edges with one color yarn in 4 threads, make relief pattern in 4 threads of yarn – 1 thread of each color.
Single crochets: start every row with 1 chain st, which doesn’t replace single crochet. Make the last st of every row in the 1st st of the previous row.
Relief pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 10 + 11 + 4 chain sts increase instead of the 1st treble crochet. Work due to the scheme. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat between arrows x 3 times, finish with sts after pattern repeat.
Note: make groups of treble crochets and single crochets of the 2nd row in chain sts of the previous row. Make 1st-3rd rows x once, then, repeat 2nd-3rd rows.
Stripes order: 2 neon-green rows, 2 apple-green rows, 2 khaki rows, finish with 3 emerald rows = 9 rows.
Stitches control: relief pattern: 1 pattern repeat x 4 rows = 12 x 10 cm;
Single crochets: 10,5 sts x 9 rows = 10 x 8 cm.
Make central part with relief pattern. For this, make 41 chain sts + 4 chain sts increase instead of the 1st treble crochet + 3 chain sts before the 1st single crochets in 4 threads of yarn (1 thread of each color). Make relief pattern, make the 1st single crochet of the 1st row in the 10th chain st from the crochet hook and pattern repeat x 3 times between arrows.
In 220 cm = 89 rows from the beginning, finish your work. For placket, make 2 x 50 chain sts + 1 chain st increase along the edge with neon-green yarn in 4 threads. Then, make 8 cm = 9 rows of single crochets due to the stripes order, make the 1st single crochet in the 2nd chain st from the crochet hook. Finish your work. Sew the last emerald row of edging plackets to the set-up row or the last row of the central part.
