Crochet Shawl-Along


This Crochet Shawl-Along is a place to share your crochet shawls, shawlettes, and wraps of all kinds. Each trimester, we will have a challenge theme to help inspire us to create a new shawl. You are more than welcome to participate in the challenge, or ignore it completely. Not everyone will be inspired by the current theme, and that’s okay. We’re just here to have fun, and create beautiful things.

Why should we all crochet-along our shawls?
To share photos of our work, support one another, and pass on tips & information about patterns! Smiley

Current project: The Klaziena Shawl, made from Scheepjes Whirl in Green Tea Tipple. This is the first 21 rows.

And here’s a better idea of the the yarn color.

Now show me what you are all working on!

Ooh Jennie, your latest is looking gorgeous. I can’t wait to see how the color works up - it looks fantastic!

Thanks sheep! The yarn is similar to the Lion Brand Wrap Star. With 4 strands in the yarn. One changes color at a time, to create a gradual color shift. But this is a finer weight, and the yarn has a MUCH better twist, so it’s not splitting constantly like the Wrap Star did. So far, I’m really liking it.

@MistressJennie Love the gorgeous colors you selected for the Calypso shawl! And that Klaziena Shawl is looking mighty fine so far!

Loving your Klaziena, @MistressJennie! Scheepjes Whirl is divine.

Decided today to hop in this term and have chosen (sigh) Mandala Wizard for another Kopf Tuch shawl. One day I shall be through with this Mandala. It is like Tribbles, I tell ya!

Ooh, is that pattern pretty straightfoward @pottermouth? I tried a skully patterned shawl before but gave up after the pattern got a bit more complicated than my brain wanted to process at the time.

Also, I seem to recall a giant shopping bag full of Mandalas. Good luck on trying to rid the house of them :wink:

The pattern is repetitive and so easy. The designer has also included a chart with the written instructions, which I find more useful. It is a wonderfully written pattern.

Blew thru 3 cakes of Mandala Gnome on a C2C blanket, so I may be down to, uh…4 more cakes??

Huh, that pattern just jumped in my cart and I bought it! I hope I can figure it out because it looks cool but also something that I could maybe handle haha. @pottermouth hold my hand if I need it?

You bet! (but I think you got this one. just ignore the wonky first pompom that wants to be all weird, you’ll see!)

You mean skip it completely?

No, crochet as the instructions say, just don’t expect the first, second, and third pompom to have any symmetry because they won’t. I have fiddled with this forever and have had to accept it. Drink some wine and it won’t matter.

I have yarn beside the bed for those nights I don’t crash out into unconsciousness immediately after settling in for the night :).

agreed! i remember fiddling with that part forever. once i got past it, it was better (with some encouragement from @pottermouth). i followed the chart pretty easily as well. that all said, i still have not finished this shawl. it’s on my list though!

Since this space is new and different, I’m not planning to follow our -Along exactly as it was on Craftster. If, as we go along, you guys decide you want something, such as a master list of free patterns added to the first post, let me know. But for now, we’ll just all see how it goes.

I love that we have a first shawl, started in our new home. Points to sheepBlue!
