Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3. Diagram A.3 shows how the shawl is assembled.

Work 3 double treble crochet around the chain-space, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through on each of these double treble crochet, work 1 double treble crochet around the same chain-space and pull the last yarn over through all 5 loops on the hook.


The piece consists of 45 whole squares and 10 half squares which are crocheted together at the end.

Use crochet hook size 3.5 mm and Kid-Silk, work from diagram A.1. When the whole diagram has been worked, cut and fasten the strand. Work a total of 45 squares in this way.

Use crochet hook size 3.5 mm and Kid-Silk, work from diagram A.2. When the whole diagram has been worked, cut and fasten the strand. Work a total of 10 half squares in this way.

The squares are first worked together horizontally and then vertically. See diagram A.3. Start by working together rows 1 and 2.

Lay 2 squares together wrong side to wrong side and crochet through both layers from the right side: 1 double crochet around the corner, * 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the next chain space *, repeat from *-* up to and including the corner (= 5 chain spaces), work 3 chain stitches (= transition to the next 2 squares). Continue to work the next 2 squares together in the same way. Work all the squares in the rows in the same way. Then work rows 2 and 3 together. Continue until all the rows have been worked together. Now all the squares in the shawl have been fastened on 2 sides. Now work all the rows together the other way in the same way. Start by working the first and second squares on row 1 together and then the first and second square together in row 2. Continue working up across all the squares. When all the squares in this row are worked together, work together the other rows in the same way.
To finish, fasten the 2 half squares which are outermost in each side in the same way to the outermost square in strips 1 and 9. Cut and fasten the strands.


= Work 4 chain stitches and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch. The black dot is the start of the round
= 1 treble crochet around the chain stitch/chain space
= 1 treble crochet in the stitch
= 1 chain stitch
= 1 double crochet around the chain stitch/chain space
= 1 double crochet in the stitch
= work 4 double treble crochet together around the chain space – see description above
= the round starts with 3 chain stitches and ends with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round
= the round starts with 1 chain stitch, 1 slip stitch in each of the first 2 chain stitches on the round, then work 1 chain stitch before continuing with the pattern as shown in diagram. The round ends with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet of the round
= the row starts with working slip stitches to the middle of the first chain space.
= from the arrow in the diagram, work back and forth.

Buongiorno, vorrei sapere quanti gomitoli occorrono per realizzare questo scialle e se ci sono rivenditori in Toscana, possibilmente vicino Firenze, grazie

DROPS Design 15.02.2019 kl. 09:44:

Buongiorno Giovanna. Trova l’indicazione del filato necessario, nella prima parte delle spiegazioni, vicino alla fotografia. Occorrono 100g di Kid Silk. I gomitoli di questo filato sono di 25 gr l’uno, quindi serviranno 4 gomitoli. A questa pagina trova l’elenco dei rivenditori Drops in Italia e dei loro riferimenti per contattarli. Buon lavoro!

Bonjour, c'est la premiere fois que je crochete un de vos modele, tous ce passe bien sauf pour le début du rang commencant par v, si je fais des mailles coulées cela fait une sur épaisseur merci

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 14:45:

Bonjour Valérie, c'est exact, comme on crochète des mailles coulées, on va avoir une sorte de double épaisseurs sur quelques mailles, mais ce sera à peine visible. Bon crochet!

Rita 12.06.2018 - 16:12:

I quadrati di questo scialle sono cuciti con ago o uniti da uncinetto. Dalla foto semra ago mentre il video mostra uncinetto. Grazie

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 17:06:

Buongiorno Rita. I quadrati vengono uniti all'uncinetto. Trova la spiegazione sotto il paragrafo Confezione. Buon lavoro!

Bonsoir, Ce châle est magnifique, je souhaite le réaliser. Cependant, je suis surprise qu'il ne faille que 100 g de Kid-silk pour cet ouvrage. Je vous remercie de bien vouloir me le confirmer. Sincères salutations. Merci pour votre merveilleux site et la qualité de vos laines. Paule

DROPS Design 16.03.2018 kl. 09:17:

Bonjour Paule, les quantités sont exactes, il faut bien 100 g de Kid-Silk pour réaliser ce châle (soit 4 pelotes de 25 g/200 m env la pelote). Bon crochet!

Mi risulta che la legenda dei punti sia errata. Ho confrontato con quella americana, la maglia alta doppia e la tripla sono invertite e se si segue lo schema secondo la legenda italiana il lavoro tira.

DROPS Design 08.12.2017 kl. 17:17:

Buonasera Anna. Abbiamo corretto il diagramma. Grazie e buon lavoro!

This Lisbon tile pattern seems to be the midle square from Winter Crystal i just finished in white thicker yarn. Both are nice!

LEVERT 08.01.2017 - 08:07:

Je trouve beaucoup de finesse dans ce châle

Marie 06.01.2017 - 06:05:

I just love this yarn so made up into this beautiful shawl it will be divine. I want this.

Barbara Sullivan 20.12.2016 - 22:28:
