First I want to say thank you so much for all the Love you have shown to the Noflaye Blanket. So many compliments from crochet facebook groups I belong to, Ravelry love, and a crazy number of visitors here.
After finishing the blanket I said hmm.. this will make for a lovely shawl. Many of you in social media thought the same. The shawl effect can be achieve just by folding the blanket.
Folding the blanket to a shawl might be great for winter days. But too heavy for warmer days. So I decided to make a small swatch of a Noflaye shaw. l I wrote down the instructions and took some pictures
Since the shawl is not worked in the round, the cream color yarn cannot be dropped and picked up every other row. Which mean there will be more tails to weave in. Oh well! got to do it, right?
For abbreviation, refer to the Noflaye Blanket. added is tr = trebble
Every odd row number is made with the cream color yarn. Every even row number is worked with a color yarn. Fasten off after every row.
row 1:ch 6, (3 dc, ch 2, 3dc) in first ch made of the ch 6, ch 1, 1 tr, in same ch
row 2: Attach yarn to 5 th ch of ch 6 of row 1, ch 1, 1 sc in same sp, ch 1, (pfst, ch 2, pfst, ch 2, pfst) in 2nd dc, ch 1, 1 sc in ch 2 sp, ch 1, sk 1 dc, (pfst, ch 2, pst, ch 2, pfst) in next dc, ch 1, 1 sc in ch 1 sp before last tr.
row 3: attach yarn to last ch in row 1, before 1st sc of row 2, ch 5, 3 dc in next sc, ch 5, (3 dc. ch 2, 3 dc) in next sc, ch 5, 3 dc in next sc, ch 1, 1 tr on last tr of row 2
row 4: attach yarn to 5th ch two rows down, ch 1, 1 sc in same sp, ch 1, sk 1 dc, (pst, ch 2, 1 pfst, ch 2, 1 pfst) in next dc, ch 1, 1 sc in 2nd pfst of row 2, ch 1, (1 pfst, ch 2, 1 pfst, ch 2, 1 pfst) in 2nd dc, ch 1, 1 sc in ch 2 sp, ch 1, (1 pfst), 2 ch, 1 pfst, 2 ch, 1 pfst) in 2nd dc, ch 1. 1 sc in 2nd pfst of row 2, ch 1, (1pfst, ch 2, 1 pfst, ch 2, 1 pfst) in 2nd dc, ch 1, 1 sc between last dc and last tr
row 5: attach yarn to 4th chain, 2 row down, work in pattern, end with 3 ch 1, 1 tr on tr two row down
Repeat row 4- 5 to your desired shawl size
here are some pictures of the swatch I made
Work the border as the blanket border. Keep in mind that you have only 1 corner located at the center back of the shawl.
Voila! That’s how you make your own Noflaye Shawl
