Rose Relief Shawl



Hi, here is my new shawl with v shaped rose stripes. It took me a very long time to finish. Although the pattern is very easy, it requires a lot of counting and concentrating. 

I’ve made one early this year, using one color. Unfortunately, it was sold before I had a chance to take photos of it.

Please note this pattern follows the filet crochet technique. You can read more about it here

Light color (cream mélange) 213, 2 skeins.

Hook: 2.5 mm/ D US

Crochet terms

for the main piece (the shawl body)
Ch: chain
Dc: double crochet
Tc: treble crochet
Sl st: slip stitch

and you will need for the edging
Sc: single stitch
Ch5picot: ch 5, sl st to first ch

Important notes:

I have designed the rose relief shawl pattern out of a pixel art drawing I found and liked on pinterest, so this pattern maybe confusing. so let's clear the confusion.
just imagine it's a cross stitch embroidery pattern:

  • the pattern boxes are of two colors; white and black.
  • each horizontal row of boxes is crochet row.
  • each row starts with ch 4, and ends with tr stitch to increase the number of whole sts to get the triangle shape. 
  • you crochet every row by doing numbers of either dc or ch.
  • the black box means; work 3 dc
  • the white box means; work dc, ch 1, dc
  • the boxes share the vertical sides, which means first or last dc 1 previously mentioned.
  • there is a link to every pattern I've made to get a clear image, and you better print or save them to follow the design properly.

 

Instructions

note:
you are going to start the work from the bottom and up.


Row 1: With dark color, start with ch 6, sl st to first ch, turn.


Row 2: ch 4, dc in first st of row 1, skip 1 ch, ch 1, dc in next ch, ch 1, tr in the same ch, turn.

when you look at the detailed drawing, you will notice the way the crochet pattern matches the rose relief design. every white box is (skip st, ch 1) crocheted, and every colored box is filled with (dc in dc). 
the detailed drawing clears the beginning of the shawl, once you start and get the idea, the work will go easily.


Follow the pattern as shown in the detailed drawing .
