Crochet Striping Shells Shawl


Welcome back to The Crochet Crowd as well as my friends over yarnspirations.com. Today’s the Striping Shells Crochet Shawl. This is featuring Caron X Pantone Bamboo. Let’s go through the ins and outs of this pattern. In today’s pattern you’ll need a 5 mm, size ‘H’ crochet hook and seven braids of Caron X Pantone Bamboo. So these are the fun colors that you can see the striping pattern that is available in here it’s a very generous looking shawl and it is a generous shawl and you’ll see that there’s a striping pattern sequence on the pattern as you can see here. So each one of the colors are labeled A, B, C, D, E and you can see how it matches with the particular colors that you see. So if you would like to change the color of your braids all you just need to do is assign A to be a certain color and et cetera and you can look at at the actual packaging to give you what those numbers are if you would like to be able to do that. So it’s a really neat idea, but the pattern is so straightforward it’s almost a beginner level pattern. We have a quick little diagram that’s available for you here. You’ll notice that there’s also a version two for striping pattern and when you see it here you can see that there’s two different ways that it could have been done. Now the thing about Caron X Pantone and Caron X Pantone Bamboo is that the designers have figured out each one of these braids for the maximum usage of this yarn. So if you’re going to change up anything in here just make sure that you might be changing the quantity of the yarn that you’ll need in order to get a certain kind of look. So just be very conscientious of that and without further ado let’s get started in today’s pattern. So the diagram is really quite straightforward. It’s in multiples of five plus three. So you go five, five, five, five and when you’re satisfied just add three and that’ll keep this whole pattern in balance. So one particular row we have the shell work and the other rows we have the framework where it sits in when you’re going to do this. So it’s a really neat idea. So it’s going to be chaining 78. So if you go five, five, five that’s seventy five and then plus three gives you 78. So if you would like to change the size of it just be aware that you will change the size of your shawl. So without further ado, let’s begin now. So with your 5 mm, size ‘H’ I want you to start with a slipknot on your finger and begin. So you can chain 78 for the particular size that you would need or you can go in multiples of five. So I’m gonna do three multiples of five. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I’ll do it again, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Do it again, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Once you have your uh, satisfied number on there whether it’s 78 or whether you change the size just add three if you are doing the customization. If you are doing the chaining 78 as per the pattern you don’t add an additional three. So let’s begin to work on row number one going across the chain. Starting sixth chain from the hook so just count it back. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Yes, it feels like you’re going a long way back and you are. So you’re gonna double crochet in the sixth one turn it around and get the back hump of the chain and double crochet and then chain three, 1, 2, 3 and double crochet into the exact same one. You’re now going to skip the next four chains. So you’re gonna do this all the way down. So 1, 2, 3 go to the 4th, uh, sorry skip uh, four chains and go to the fifth chain over okay, so fifth chain over and you are going to double crochet into that one and then chain three 1, 2, 3 and then double crochet in the same one. So you’re gonna do that all the way across going in your chain. So you guys get five so 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and then eventually you’re going to get to the end of this which I’m about to show you shortly. I’m just going to the fifth one over here. If you maintain your counts as possible, as as close as possible you will end up on the right stitch. So chain thee and then double crochet. And then it’s asking you to once you get over there in the very last stitch you are going to apply one double crochet. And that’s it. So that was row number one. You’re now going to turn your work and do row number two. You’re gonna chain three which counts as a double crochet and in the chain three space okay, just see how you see it in there is going to be five double crochets. So let’s count those up together. So 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Then I want you to go into the next chain three space and do it again and you’re gonna do this all the way across your, your uh, your work really. It’s that simple. So there’s five double crochets in there and then you can, continue to go and you’ll hit the last one before the end there will be five in that one as well and the trick is, is just to make sure you handle your edge. So let’s put in our five first. And in this one right here the turning chain you’re going to apply one double crochet. So let’s turn our work now and do row number three. So number three we’re gonna establish the framework again. So you’re gonna chain a total three, 1, 2, 3. The middle one of the grouping of five is where you’re going to play all the way across so it’s the third one in and you’re going to double crochet there and then chain three and double crochet again. So then you jump to the next grouping of five, go to the middle one of that five and double crochet, chain three and double crochet. So do that all the way across and then eventually you’ll come to the last one like I’m, like I’m about to and you’re going to go into the last middle one and then chain three and do it and double crochet again and in the very end one here don’t go into a space go into the chain and double crochet. So now we’re gonna cover the repeat of what we already know. So you’re just gonna turn your work and chain up three. So 1, 2, 3 and you’re going, that counts as a double crochet and you’re going to chain or double crochet five times into that chain three space. So the pattern has you repeating color ways um, going, you know, is in a pattern using up all your Caron X Pantone Bamboo. So just follow those segments if you wish to in order to have the same look. It’s a really gorgeous looking yarn. Um, it will drape really quite beautifully because it is bamboo and this is simply just how to do it. It’s a really quite a simple ah, pattern to be able to follow back and forth and ah, you know, it’s great for in front of the TV if you don’t, if you wanna put your hands to good use while you’re watching the TV. So once you get to the end just go into the turning chain and double crochet and then begin all over again. So it’s a repeating of two rows. This is the wrong side, this is the right side and just change the colors as often or as little as you wish. Until next time it’s Mikey on behalf of Yarnspirations as well as thecrochetcrowd.com. We’ll see you again real soon. Bye. Bye 👋
