A very easy to make shawl, warm and elegant. Love the tie dye look

size is about: 46 long, width is 28 inches on the widest part and 4 inches on the narrowest

 

 


What you need

2 skeins of Loops & Threads Impeccable. Color Seaside

6 mm hook

Abbreviations

ch = chain

dc = double crochet

st = stitch

sk = skip

sp = space

beg. = beginning

How to work it

chain 4

row 1 – 4 dc in 4th ch from hook. Turn

row 2 – ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 1 dc on 3rd ch of beg, ch 3

row 3 – ch 3, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, 1 dc on beg ch 3

row 4 – ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc in ch 3. Turn

row 5 – ch 3, 2 dc, in same st, 1 dc, 1 dc in ch 3

Note: increases are done on the same side. When you finish with an increase and turn your work, you will increase on that side. The Chain space is always on the opposite side

row 6 – is different from previous row. No more chain 1 space.

ch 3, 1 dc, 1 dc in ch 1 space, 7 dc, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in ch 3

put a marker on the 6th double crochet of the beginning of this row. The chain 3 always counts as a double crochet . In the following  row (in this case row 7) you will not work those 6 dc. This is what creates the dented look of the tail.

Turn

row 7 – ch 3, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc, 2 dc in next st, 3 dc, ch 1, sk 1 dc, 2 dc. Turn

row 8 – ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1, 5 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc on top of ch 3. Turn

row 9 – ch 3, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 7 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, 1 dc on ch 3. Turn

row 10 – ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1, 9 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc on ch 3. Turn

row 11 – ch 3, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 11 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, 1 dc on ch 3.

put a marker on the 6th double crochet of the beginning of this row. You will do this after completing 5 rows after the marker

Turn

row 12: ch 3, 1 dc, 1 dc in ch 1 space, 7 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc (stopping at the marker) turn

row 13 – ch 3,  2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 9 dc, ch 1, 1 dc on ch 3. turn

row 14 – ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1, 11 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc on ch 3. turn

row 17 – ch 3, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 17 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, 1 dc in ch 3. move marker to 6th dc at the beginning of this row) turn

row 18 – ch 3, 1 dc, 1 dc in ch 1 sp, 13 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc (stopping at the marker, turn

Keep on working this pattern until you reached the desired length of the scarf.

What to keep in mind

chain 3 counts as a double crochet. when increasing at a end of a row, work on the last 4 stitches this way: 2 dc in same st, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc in next st. When increasing at the beg of a row, ch 3, 2 dc in same st, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in same st.

move the marker after every 5 row. On the next row put a double crochet on the chain 1 space, do your increase pattern in the 4 stitches before the marker and turn
