Doily Shawl

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® - Microspun

GAUGE:

Not critical. Crochet loosely but evenly.

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:

Dc2tog (Yo, insert hook in next st, yo and pull loop through, yo and pull through 2 loops on hook) 2 times -- 3 loops left on hook. Yo and pull through all 3 loops. Dc3tog Same as dc2tog, only work 3 timesñ 4 loops left on hook. Yo and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

Trcl (Triple-crochet Cluster) Ch 4. Yo twice, insert hook in 4th ch from hook, yo and pull loop through, (yo and pull through two loops on hook) 2 times ñ 2 loops left on hook. Yo twice, insert hook in same ch as before, yo and pull loop through, (yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook) 2 times ñ 3 loops left on hook, Yo and pull through all 3 loops on hook.

With one strand of each yarn held together, ch 14 for base chain.

Ch 3. DO NOT TURN. Rotate and work a finishing row of clusters along the bottom edge as follows:

Row 19 Work trcl, (Dc in next dc, trcl) 4 times, [sc in ch-4 space above point, trcl, (dc in next dc, trcl) 8 times] 5 times, sc in ch-4 space, trcl, (dc in next dc, trcl) 4 times. Dc first sc of top edging. Finish off. Weave in ends. Block (see Tips).

TIPS Finishing

With fabric this open, you cannot effectively work over ends as you go. Individually thread each loose tail on a yarn needle and run it down and back through a dc. This method is hardly noticeable even in the middle of a row.

Blocking To make lacework really "pop", blocking is important. Wool-Ease and Microspun are machine washable, so the wet-blocking method works well.

Put the shawl in your washer and fill with a couple of inches of cool water. Thoroughly wet the shawl by gently squeezing in the water. Spin until just damp. Spread a clean towel or several towels on a carpeted floor or on a bed. Lay the damp shawl on the towel(s) and gently ease it into shape, blocking to size, pinning as necessary. This shawl can take some major stretching. Allow to dry completely.

Yarn and Color Choice

The combination of Wool-Ease and Microspun creates a lofty fabric that combines the warmth of wool blend with the softness and sheen of microfiber.

Bright hues such as the reds shown here help the lacework "pop". Other Lion Brand yarns and combinations also work up well. Using strands of complimentary or contrasting instead of closely related colors will create an even more pronounced tweed effect. One strand of Wool-Ease Chunky is wonderful. One strand of Homespun will hold the loosened gauge, but because of the lovely texture and varied shades of most Homespun colors, the lace design will not stand out as much as will the beauty of the yarn itself. Experiment and enjoy!

Doily Shawl Crochet Pattern Reviewed by joan frazier on 2011-02-06 *
I found this pattern to be filled with errors.From rows 9 thru 12 there is no mention of DECREASING in order to acquire the specified number of "dc"s, i.e. Row 9: "dc in next 13 dc" and how to arrive at that number.Same problem in rows 10, 11, & 12. Also from row 12 on, the brackets and parentheses were improperly inserted, causing much confusion. Too bad because it's a nice piece.
