See diagrams A.1 and A.2.




The shawl is worked top down with lace pattern.

Work 45 chain stitches with hook size 3 mm and Cotton Merino. Start on row with arrow and work patterns A.1a, A.1b and A.1c. When A.1a to A.1c have been completed in height continue from the row with an arrow in diagrams as follows: Work A.2a, A.2b over the next 3 treble crochet-groups (= 3 repeats in width), A.2c, A.2b over the next 3 treble crochet-groups (= 3 repeats in width), A.2c (= middle of shawl), A.2b over the next 3 treble crochet-groups (= 3 repeats in width), A.2c, A.2b over the next 3 treble crochet-groups (= 3 repeats in width), A.2d.
Turn and work back and forth like this until the diagrams have been completed in height.
REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Then repeat the last 4 rows in diagrams A.2a to A.2d in the same way. Each time you work a repeat in height there is room for 10 more repeats of A.2b on the row (i.e., 3 more repeats between the side-diagrams (A.2a and A.2d) and first/last A.2c on row and 2 more repeats on each side of A.2c in middle of shawl).
When beginning a new repeat of A.2c work the first treble crochet-group around the middle chain stitch on the last row of the previous repeat of A.2c.
When the middle of the shawl measures approx. 52 cm the shawl is finished – adjust so you finish after a row similar to the last row in the diagrams. Cut and fasten the strand.


= 1 chain stitch
= 4 chain stitches
= 1 double crochet in stitch
= 1 double crochet around chain-space
= 1 double treble crochet around chain stitch/chain-space
= start here - previous row already worked and described in text!

Bonjour, les 45 ml on peut en mettre plus ou alors çà s allonge au fur et à mesure. Merci pour la réponse très beau modèle.

Bonjour Mme Guit, le châle se crochète de haut en bas: on commence par 45 ml et on va augmenter progressivement de chaque côté + en répétant les diagrammes pour former la largeur totale du châle. Bon crochet!

La maglieria da voi realizzata e' in vendita?

Buongiorno Caterina. Ci dispiace, ma i capi fotografati non sono in vendita. Molto probabilmente i nostri rivenditori possono metterla in contatto con una magliaia disponibile a realizzare il capo per lei. Buon lavoro!
