Shawl

SKILL LEVEL:  Intermediate + (Level 4)

SIZE: One Size

About 27 x 55 in. (68.5 x 139.5 cm)

GAUGE:
11 sts + 4 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch
STITCH EXPLANATION:
BPDC (back post double crochet) Yarn over, insert hook from back to front then to back, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Sk st in front of the BPDC.
FPDC (front post double crochet) Yarn over, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Sk st behind the FPDC.
FPSC (front post single crochet) Insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook. Skip st behind the FPSC.
lg-shell (large-shell) Work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in indicated st or ch-sp.
picot Ch 3, sl st in 3rd ch from hook.
sm-shell (small shell) Work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in indicated ch-sp.
V-st (V-stitch) Work (dc, ch 1, dc) in indicated st or ch-sp.

NOTES:
1. Shawl is worked back and forth in rows beg at center back neck.
2. Shawl is worked with 2 colors. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
