The Happy Go Lucky Shawlette is fun, colorful, and super easy to stitch up.  A simple granny triangle shows off the self striping yarn beautifully and a fabulous ruffle gives it a fun and lighthearted texture!

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:


Materials:
  • 5.0 mm H crochet hook
  • 1 Caron Cake (please note that if you are substituting yarn, just look for a yarn that recommends a 5.0 mm hook.  You'll need approximately 383 yards of yarn for this project).
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors


Sizing:
  • 50 inches across the top triangle edge
  • 34 inches along each side triangle side



Instructions for the main part of shawlette (granny triangle):

Note:  To make the shawl as shown, work a total of 29 rows before continuing to the edging rows.  You can make yours larger or smaller by working more or less rows of this section.


Ch 4, then in the ch furthest from the hook sl st to form ring.

Row 1: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), the work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in center of ring, the work (ch 1, dc) in the ring.

Row 2: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), the work 2 dc in the ch 1 space from the previous row, then ch 1. Work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in the ch 2 space (top corner peak) from the previous row, then ch 1. Work 2 dc, ch 1 in the ch 1 space from the previous row, then a dc in the third ch of the turning chain.

Row 3: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), then work 2 dc, ch 1 in the ch 1 space. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in the chain 1 space. Work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in the chain 2 space (top corner peak). Ch 1, then 3 dc in the ch 1 space, then ch 1, then 2 dc in the ch 1 space, then ch 1, then a dc in the last dc.

Row 4: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1). Work 2 dc in the ch 1 space, then work (3 dc, ch 1) in each of the the next ch 1 spaces, then ch 1. Work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in the ch 2 space (top corner peak), then work (ch 1, 3 dc) in each of the next ch spaces, then ch 1. Work 2 dc in the last ch space, ch 1, then a dc in the last dc.

Repeat row 4, adding a (3-dc in a ch- 1 sp) on each side for each row until triangle has a total of 29 rows from beginning (to make shawlette as shown).  You can add more repeats of row 4 if you'd like a larger shawl or less rows for a smaller shawlette.   


If you like a clean, straight edge, you can fasten off at this point (or put a couple more repeats of row 4).  If you'd like a ruffle, move on to the edging instructions below...


Edging Instructions:

Row 1: Ch 3 and turn.  In the first space work 5 dc.  *Work a sl st in the next space, then 6 dc in the next space.  Repeat from * then at the top peak (corner ch 2 space) work (sl st, 10 dc, sl st).  Continue down the other side of the triangle by working *6 dc in the next space, then a sl st in the next space.  Repeat from * to the last space, then work (6 dc, st st) in the same space.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn.  Work 2 dc in the first st, then 3 dc in each dc from the previous row.  After working the very last dc of the row, also work a sl st into the same st to create a softer, rounded edge to finish off the ruffle row.  Fasten off.


Finishing & Assembly:

Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!

Happy crocheting lovelies!

  5. I followed the pattern exactly, used the recommended hook size and a Caron Cake. Ran out of yarn 2/3 of the way through the last row of the edging. I don't crochet loosely so not sure what went wrong! Now I have to hope that I can find another Caron Cake in Macaron before Christmas!!! Does the yarn length that is listed in the pattern include the edging?
