Pocket Shawl

Lion Brand« Homespun® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

6 sts + 8 rows = about 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:

sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

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 top of 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 top of st behind the FPDC.

NOTES:

1. Shawl is worked as a rectangle, then ends are turned up to make pockets.
2. Ch-3s are worked across each end of Shawl. The chs form decorative loops on the pockets.

FINISHING
Fold each end of Shawl up 6 in. (15 cm) to the RS to form pockets. Push the ch-3's to the RS of the piece.
