Adrastea Shawl UK terms

20180508_154127420_iOS Copyright Ellinor Widéen @frostvirka frostvirka.wordpress.com

Yarn:
One skein of Scheepjes Whirl for the small shawl, one skein Whirl + 1 matching Whirlette for the big one. You can order your yarn from Favoritgarner.

For the big shawl, choose a Whirlette that matches the shade of your Whirl that you start making the shawl with (I started with grey, so my Whirlette is grey). The big shawl is made in colour 770.
You can see a picture of the small shawl at the end of the pattern (it is made in Whirl Key Lime Pi). 

Hook: 3 – 4 mm   I have used 3,5 mm.
Size: small shawl:126 x 87 x 87 cm      big shawl:160 x 110 x 110 cm

UK terms used:
St –stitch
Dc –Double crochet
Tr – Treble crochet
Ch-sp –chain space
Fptr – Front post treble crochet

Puff – Puff stitch    Yo, insert hook in st, yo, pull loop through st and make loop same height as previous sts in working row, (yo, insert hook in same st, yo, pull loop through st and make loop same height as working row) twice, yo, repeat until you have 9 loops on hook, pull through all 9 loops on hook.

Tips:

  • The shawl works up from the top of the neck and down.
  • It is worked in rows back and forth. 
  • Odd rows are the right side, even rows are the wrong side
  • On even rows, you make tr + ch 1 + 2 tr in dc. On odd rows, you make 2 tr + ch 1 + tr in dc. On even rows, the increases are made in ch1-sp right before and right after the middle of the shawl. On even rows, the increases are made in ch1-sp after the initial ch 3 + tr, and in the last ch1-sp on the row.
  • In the end of the pattern you will find a chart of the 10 initial rows.
  • On the small shawl I have used different shades from my Whirl for the three edging rows (see photo below) The edging on the big Shawl is made in Whirlette only.

20180416_173208977_iOSKeep repeating rows 7–10 until you reach the length you want. Every time you repeat rows 7–10, the times you repeat the parantheses will increase with two.  The first time you repeat row 7 you will therefore repeat the parantheses 5 times instead of 3, and so on. On the small shawl, I have made totally 60 rows. On the big shawl I have kept on making rows until the Whirl was finished. Make sure your very last row is row 8.  

Edging:
Start on the top side of the shawl:
Row 1
Dc in first tr, *ch 2, dc in next tr, repeat* to the end of this length (photo 1)
ch 2, fptr around second tr, fptr around first tr,(photo 2 and 3) *ch 2, tr + ch 1 + tr in dc (photo 4), ch 2, fptr around third tr in a tr-group (photo 5), fptr around first tr in the same tr-group (photo 6), repeat* to the end of this length, ch 2, in ch3-sp in the middle of the shawl make tr + ch 1 + tr + ch 1 + tr + ch 1 + tr (photo 7), ch 2, **, fptr around third tr in a tr-group, fptr around first tr in the same tr-group, repeat**to the end of this length, but after your last tr + ch 1 + tr in dc; ch 2,  fptr around the last tr, fptr around last but one tr, ch 2, join to initial dc with a ss.

I like tassels and braids on my shawls so I made two long thick braids in Whirlette and put on the sides of my Adrastea shawl.
