Crochet Shawl - Circular Shawl


REQUIRED MATERIALS

7 ozs. 2-ply BEEHIVE Real Elder Wool, if using all white, or 4 ozs. of white and 1 1/2 ozs. each of two shades of steel grey, or natural, if a shaded border be desired. A No. 8 Celluloid Crochet Hook.

NOTE(s)

A favourite pattern. Being made from the center, it is a good plan to work the first few rounds fairly closely, while gradually relaxing the stitch until the desired tension is obtained; this prevents the bulgy effect which is so easily produced in a circular shawl of this type.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS

Commencing at the center of the circular shawl, make 8 ch., join the 1st to the last with 1 s.c. to form a ring.

1st Round - Make 3 ch. (this standing throughout the recipe for the first tr. stitch), then work 1 tr. and 1 ch. thirteen times, finishing this (and each succeeding) round with 1 s.c. in the top of the 3 ch., continue without turning.

2nd Round - Miss the space from which the 3 ch. is made and work 1 tr., 1 ch., and 1 tr. and 1 ch. between each tr. of the previous round, finishing with 1 tr. and 1 ch. into the same space as the 3 ch., making 28 tr. altogether.

3rd Round - * 1 tr., 1 ch., 1 tr. and 1 ch. in the 1st space (after the 3 ch.), 1 tr. and 1 ch. in the next space, repeat from * all around.

4th Round - Work a loop tr. into the 1st space (after the 3 ch.) as follows: *wool over the hook and draw a loop through the space, wool over the hook and draw a second loop through the same space, wool over the hook and draw a loop through all the stitches on the hook, 1 ch., repeat from * once more into the same space; 1 tr. and 1 ch. in each of the next 2 spaces, repeat from the first * of this round until the end of the round is reached (there should then be 14 groups of loop trebles, with the 2 tr. and 1 ch. between each).

Continue repeating this round, always working the groups of loop tr. into those of the previous round and working 1 tr. and 1 ch. into each space between the groups; there will be an extra 1 tr. and 1 ch. between each space in every additional round.

Border for this Circular Shawl

When there are 22 tr. between each looped tr. rib, commence the border as follows:

1st Round - Work the 2 loop tr. as before (using the light steel grey, or natural, if a shaded border be required), * miss a space, 1 tr., 1 ch., 1 tr. and 1 ch. in the next, miss a space, 1 tr., 1 ch., 1 tr. and 1 ch. in the next, miss a space, 1 tr., 1 ch., 1 tr. and 1 ch in the next, miss a space, 2 loop tr. in the next repeat from * to the end of the round.

2nd Round - Work the 2 loop tr. as before (using the darker grey or natural in the case of a shaded border), * miss a space, 1 tr. and 1 ch. in each of the next 2 spaces, 4 tr. with the 1 ch. after each in the next space, 1 tr. and 1 ch. in each of the next 2 spaces, miss a space, 2 loop tr. in the next, repeat from * to the end of the round.

3rd Round - Work the 2 loop tr. as before (using the lighter wool for a shaded border), * miss 2 spaces, 1 tr. and 1 ch. in each of the next 2 spaces, 4 tr. with 1 ch. after each in the next space, 1 tr. and 1 ch. in each of the next 2 spaces, miss 2 spaces, 2 loop tr. in the next, repeat from * to the end of the round.

4th Round - The same as the 3rd round, but working 6tr instead of 4, with the 1 ch. after each, in the centre space (and, for a shaded border, using the darker wool).

5th Round - Work the 2 loop tr. as before (using the lighter wool for a shaded border), * miss 2 spaces, 1 tr. and 1 ch. in each of the next 3 spaces, 4 tr. (with the 1 ch. after each) in the next, 1 tr. and 1 ch. in each of the next 3 spaces, miss 2 spaces, 2 loop tr. in the next, repeat from * to the end of the round.

6th Round - The same as the 5th round (but using the darker wool for a shaded border).

7th Round - Like the 5th round, using the white wool both for this and for the remainder of the shawl, whether the border be plain or shaded.

8th Round - Like the 4th round (except that the wool is white).

Repeat the 4th and 5th rounds until the circular shawl is the required size, then work the following edging:

Work the 2 loop tr. as before, miss 2 spaces, 1 tr. in the next * 7 ch., 1 d.c. in the first of these ch., 1 tr. in the next space, repeat from * until only 2 spaces are left before the loop tr. rib, then, repeating from the beginning of the round until the edging is complete, fasten off.
