E L Y S I A N SHAWL & SHAWLETTE
‘Elysian’ (adj.) beautiful or creative, divinely inspired; peaceful and perfect.
I found joy designing this pattern. It wasn’t overly complicated and didn’t require my entire concentration (don’t take that the wrong way lol). So basically a simple and repetitive pattern that can be made in any size you wish. Just follow the guidelines outlined in the pattern.
Made with a total of five crochet stitches and in Stylecraft Batik yarn, this shawl has a soft drape and feels beautiful.
This pattern is written in both UK and US terms and consists of step-by-step photographs to help you along the way.
It is aimed at an adventurous beginner due to increasing stitches and the use of puffs and picots
As mentioned above, Stylecraft Batik was used to make these pieces. (The shawlette consists of one skein of Batik Elements)
- 4mm hook (or corresponding hook to go with your choice of yarn)
- Yarn needle
- Blocking equipment if desired
The gauge for the different sized hooks are as follows (5 cm square):
4mm hook – 9 stitches and 5 rows
5mm hook – 8 stitches and and approximately 4.5 rows
Note that if your gauge is like the ones above, then if you’re using the 5mm hook, your shawl will have a more relaxed drape.
Tassels are entirely optional, they used up all of my left over yarn so I was happy to add them.
A big thank you to my testers, Courtney, Sara, Anna and Terrii, without you I wouldn’t be able to do what I do xo
