The Shawl

This shawl is a take on the ever popular corner to corner (c2c) crochet technique and it’s so simple to make this soft lace-look with only a few stitches.

The most important part of c2c is to know what to do when you turn in order to make the new extra ‘square’, the rest is a doddle!

The Yarn

I chose to use Scheepjes Alpaca Rhythm for the shawl and it gives it the most glorious drape!

It’s a lace weight yarn and at 200m/25g it goes a long way, I only used 3 balls for the entire shawl.

I used the shade Robotic (654) but there are so many to choose from to make it perfect for you and your style. Click on the link below to shop for your yarn:

Above, under standard US terms, Row 3 has tr crochet, and I am guess this is a misprint, as all of the stitches in each row in the US version should be dc. I printed off a copy of your pattern, but unbeknownst to me, it is the UK standard version. I couldn't figure out why mine just wasn't looking right. I got onto this blog and looked up the pattern and now I see my error. I will correct my copy of the pattern - but just thought it might help someone else, to make sure you are interpreting the stitches correctly. Also, needed to mention the typo in Row 3... Thank you!

Thanks so much for letting me know Pam! Such a silly typo to make and I'm so sorry. You're absolutely right, they should all be US dc in the pattern. Thanks again! Hannah

HI! This C2C looks adorable... such cute little spaces! I just finished a standard C2C with 6 colors to make a pixelated image of a favorite character of my daughter's... and need a break from C2C, but am definitely saving this!! I love crochet stitch patterns that leave folks wondering, "How did she do that?" LOL... great job, great pattern. I love working with thin yarn, too. Thank you!!
