I can't believe it has been a while since I posted anything. I have completed out many projects that include a knitted t-shirt, crocheted feathers, a sock doll made from an old sock, and a teddy bear I intend to give to my granddaughter. You can find my finished projects in Instagram and Facebook.
So onto my latest completed project. This project can to be after a co-worker wanted clarification on pattern stitch she found on Pinterest, which was a simple "dc, ch1 in a ch1 space pattern". It was a square/ rectangular pattern, but I thinking it would make a great triangle shawl by doing increases at the ends.
This particular shawl I used 2 skeins of Red Heart Super Saver yarn and a size J hook, but any size hook and yarn could be used. So here is the pattern:
Chain 5, dc in the first chain. Turn.
Row 1: Ch 4, dc in the first dc (increase made), ch 1, dc in the next space, ch 1, dc in the third chain from the beginning ch 5 (increase made). Turn.
Row 2: Ch 4, dc in the first dc , [ch 1, dc in the next ch 1 space] repeat across all ch1 spaces, dc in the 3rd chain of ch 4 of the previous row.
Repeat row two until desired size of shawl. An alternative to doing a dc in turning chain at the end is to do the final dc in the last ch1 space.
Here is a video on how to make this shawl:
