Trailing Wake Shawl Pattern by Joanne Scrace
With stripes and a central line, like the the ripples behind a boat this unusual rhombus shaped shawl worked in a biased fabric is simple to make and elegant to wear.
Mix up the colours and play with the stripes for a different look.
1x 100g skein 4 ply yarn - Col A
1x 100g skein 4 ply yarn - Col B
4.5mm (US 7) hook
20 sts and 14 rows in rows in htr only to 10 cm/4 in using 3.5 mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension)
Basic crochet stitches, working in rows, raised (post) stitches, decreasing, increasing.
The shawl starts at the point at one end with increases on each edge and decreases around the central line of raised trebles to create the biased fabric. At the central point the increase and decrease pattern alters to keep the stitch count even but continue to create a biased fabric.
This pattern is charted and written using standard UK crochet terminology (with US conversions given in the abbreviations)
