ROW 3: 5 ch, 1 tr in next tr, 5 ch, * 1 tr in next tr, 3 ch, 1 dc in ch-space, 3 ch, 1 tr in next tr, 5 ch *, repeat from *-* 6 more times, 1 tr in next tr, 2 ch, skip 2 ch, 1 tr in next ch = 17 tr. Turn.

Repeat row 3 and 4 until piece measures approx. 168 cm (adjust after row 4).

FINISH:
Then work a finish as follows: 5 ch, 1 tr in next tr, 2 ch, 1 tr in first dc, 2 ch, * 1 tr in next tr, 2 ch, 1 tr in ch-space, 2 ch, 1 tr in next tr, 2 ch, 1 tr in next dc, 2 ch *, repeat from *-* 6 more times, 1 tr in next tr, 2 ch, skip 2 ch, 1 tr in next ch = 32 tr. Turn.
Work 1 row with dc as follows: 1 ch, 1 dc in every ch and tr = 96 dc. Fasten off. Work 1 row with dc along both short sides as follows: 1 ch, 1 dc in every ch and tr = 96 dc.

FRINGES:
Fasten fringes in each square along short sides.
1 fringe: Cut 3 lengths of yarn of 20 cm. Fold them double and pull loop through a square. Then pull yarn ends through the loop.

SHAPING:
Place the piece in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water - do not twist. Then roll the piece in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the piece will now only be moist. Place the piece on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to measurements found at the top of pattern. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.

So pleased with pattern so far... this is beautiful. I am stumped on the "finish" though. Do I begin with the short side or the long? Please help! Thanks. Kathy

Dear Kathy, The shawl is worked starting from one end (short side) to the other end. When piece measures 168 cm (after a row 4), work a finishing row as stated under "FINISH" + 1 sc row then work 1 sc row on the other short side (along foundation chain). Happy crocheting!

I think that the patern is different than the picture.... And i really want to make it but its not possible. Tour nr 2 isnt possible because i think there is a mistake

Dear Mrs Snoeren, the video below shows how to work diagram to this scarf. Happy crocheting!

Beste mevrouw, meneer. Ik ben begonnen met deze sjaal. Gaandeweg heb ik zitten kijken en naar mijn idee is het resultaat op de foto een ander patroon dan het resultaat van het patroon dat beschreven staat. Ook erg mooi, maar volgens mij dus twee verschillende sjaals. Ik ben benieuwd of het klopt wat ik denk. Alvast dank voor uw reactie. Met vriendelijke groet, Joyce van der Velden

I have an "ICE Yarn" that is 10% Alpaca/ 25% Wool/ 65% Acrylic. The initial yarn strand is fairly thin with a fuzzy feel to it. Was wondering what your thoughts were trying to use this type of yarn for this project. Different hook size, etc?

Dear Charlene, please click click here for all relevant informations about our yarn - please contact the store where you bought your yarn for any individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Een geweldige sjaal om te maken en te dragen.

I haven't crocheted in such a long time but this shawl is gorgeous and I am tearing out the knitted one I just started so that I can attempt this one...wish me luck!

Laurie 11.05.2014 - 05:05:

I'm confused as to how much of the Drops yarn I need to purchase for this pattern in a large. Thank you! :)

DROPS Design 12.05.2014 kl. 09:51:

Dear Laurie, you will need 300 g DROPS Cotton Merino for this shawl - measurements are given while working and after blocking (it will be then somewhat less width but longer). Happy crocheting!

Deborah David 01.05.2014 - 20:22:

Maura O'Neill 26.04.2014 - 16:26:

I was wondering what the multiples are in the foundation chain to make this shawl wider. Thank you.

DROPS Design 28.04.2014 kl. 10:07:

Dear Mrs O'Neill, to get 1 extra repeat, add 12 sts (1 time A.2), to get 2 extra repeats, add 24 sts (2 times A.2) and so on. Happy crocheting!

Ein schöner Schal, einfaches Muster und so wirkungsvoll, er verdient wirklich noch einen Kommentar mehr :-)
