Sea Lettuce Shawlette, Free Crochet Pattern + Video Tutorial


The Sea Lettuce Shawlette is a gorgeous little wrap with lots of texture, thanks to the lovely cluster V stitch.  I made mine a shawlette, but you can make yours a full sized shawl too by just working more rows of the pattern! 

Click below to watch a full video tutorial on how to make this project:






Materials:
  • 5.5 mm I crochet hook
  • 472 yards of DK weight yarn (I used 2 skeins of Audine Wools Halo DK by KnitCrate in the "Malachite" colorway)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure




Sizing:
  • 41 inches along top edge
  • 23 inches from bottom point straight up
  • 28 inches along each side of the triangle


Instructions:

Note: If you have never done this stitch, be sure to check out the video, where I walk you through step by step!

Also, because of the number of steps involved for this stitch, I've divided each part as a step.

Ch 8 (multiple of 3)

Row 1: 
  1. Begin in the 5th chain from the hook.
  2. Wrap yarn around hook and bring up a loop (3 loops on the hook). 
  3. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops on the hook (2 loops on the hook).
  4. Wrap yarn around hook and bring up a loop from that same chain (4 loops on the hook).
  5. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops on the hook (3 loops on the hook).
  6. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through all three loops.
  7. Chain 2
  8. Then working into that same chain, wrap yarn around hook, bring up a loop (three loops on the hook).
  9. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops (two loops on the hook).
  10. Wrap yarn around hook and go back into the same chain and bring up a loop (4 loops on the hook).
  11. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops (3 loops on the hook)
  12. Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through all three loops.
  13. Skip two chains and in that very last chain repeat steps 2-12.

Row 2:
  • Ch 3 and turn.
  • Working into the chain 2 spaces from the previous row, repeat steps 2-12 for the cluster v stitch from row 1 (instead of working into the chains, you'll work into the chain 2 spaces all the way across).
  • To complete the row, work a cluster v into the turning chain space too.
  • Repeat row 2 for desired height.
  • Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!
