A Lovely Meshy Shawl

I recently was looking over blog posts and saw Quiet Water Crafts WIP post about a wonderful scarf she was making using Caron Cakes.

It really inspired me to whack out one of my remaining Caron Cakes and get crocheting. This is what I came up with.

Firstly, I have to say, I really love the colour combo. The rainbow sprinkles Caron Cakes I used on Harleys baby blanket back in April was lovely, but unfortunately as it is a mixture of colours there are quite a lot of muddy bits where the dye has bled together. This isn’t the case with this colourway. Its a lot crisper. 

Anyways, Here is the pattern. Enjoy!

Row 1. Into a Magic Loop, Ch3 for the first Dc, then Dc once, chain 3, then Dc twice.

Row 2. Ch 3, then Dc into the same stitch. Dc once into the rest of the stitches in the row, until you reach the chain 3 space, where you shoud Dc twice, Chain 3, and Dc twice more. Continue with a single Dc in each stitch, until you reach the final stitch, where you should Dc twice into the same stitch. 

Row 3 and 4. Repeat Row 2. 

Row 5. Ch 1. Sc into the same space. *Chain 4, Skip 2 then Sc into the next stitch*. Repeat until you reach the chain 3 space, where you should chain 4 and sc into the chain 3 space again, before continuing to chain 4 then skip 2 then Sc into the next Stitch. 

Row 6. Chain 5. Sc into the first Ch 4 space. *Ch 4 then Sc into next chain 4 space*. Repeat until you reach the chain 4 space at the corner of the work, where you should chain 4 and sc into the chain 4 corner space again, before continuing to chain 4 then Sc into the next Ch 4 space. When you get to the final Chain 4 space, Ch 2 then Dc into the first Sc of the previous row. 

If it helps you to understand the mesh pattern, I used this diagram to understand what to do, particularly when reaching the ends of the row. Obviously, I modified the number of stitches but you get the gist. Hopefully it helps you too.

This is not my image, I found it with many other very useful stitch diagrams over at Erga Handmade. Go and check them out!

Row 7. Ch 1. Sc into the same space. *Chain 4, then Sc into the next Ch 4 space*. Repeat until you reach the chain 3 space, where you should chain 4 and sc into the chain 3 space again, before continuing to chain 4 then Sc into the next Ch 4 space. 

Row 8. Chain 5. Sc into the first Ch 4 space. *Ch 4 then Sc into next chain 4 space*. Repeat until you reach the chain 4 space at the corner of the work, where you should chain 4 and sc into the chain 4 corner space again, before continuing to chain 4 then Sc into the next Ch 4 space. When you get to the final Chain 4 space, Ch 2 then Dc into the first Sc of the previous row. 

Row 9. Now we need to create the foundation for the next row of Dc. To do this we repeat row 7, but instead of chaining 4, we chain 3. 

Row 10. To create the first row of Dc, Chain 3 and Dc into the first stitch, then Dc 3 into each Chain 3 space and once into each Sc. Continue this pattern until you reach the corner chain, where you should Dc twice, Chain 3, and Dc twice more. Continue to Dc once into each Sc amd 3 times into each 3 Chain space. In the final Sc of the row, Dc twice. 

Row 11 to 13. Follow Row 2.

Row 14 to 18. Follow Row 5 to 9.

Row 19 to 22. Follow Row 10 to 13.

Row 23 to 27. Follow Row 5 to 9.

Row 28 to 31. Follow Row 10 to 13.

Row 32 to 43. Repeat Row 5 to 8 three times.

Row 44. Follow Row 9.

Row 45. Sc into the first stitch, then Sc once into every Sc stitch and Sc twice into each Chain 3 space, until you reach the corner, where you should Sc 4 times into the chain 3 corner space. Continue to Sc once into every Sc stitch and Sc twice into each Chain 3 space to the end. 

Row 46. Sc into the first stitch, Chain 7, then skip a stitch and Sc into the next stitch. Repeat to end to create the final round. 

Fasten off and sew in the ends.

And there you have it! One lovely Caron Cakes shawl! Enjoy! And remember to send me a pic if you give it a go!
