week 09

Stitches

  • ch chain
  • dc double crochet
  • ss slip stitch
  • st stitch

Tips & tricks

  • If you find it hard to keep track of the rows (for example, which rows belong to the separator) take a contrast yarn and weave that horizontally through your rows on the top and bottom. When you finish, take your contrast yarn out.
  • This embroidery pattern is most easily created if you start with contouring the motifs
  • The row numbers in purple indicate the row count when you count the rows continuously throughout the weeks.

Yarns

See the colour table for used yarns.

Hooksize: 4.5mm (US Size 7) (optionally 4.0mm (US size G/6)).
Gauge: 19 dc and 19 rows = 10cm (4in).

Pattern

Release stitchmarker from previous week. ch1, turn.
Rows 1-23 59dc across, ch1, turn.
Row 24 59dc across, Place stitchmarker in last stitch.

Embroidery

Work your embroidery on rows 1-17 (rows 210-226) in cross stitch according to the embroidery scheme, with row 1 being the bottom, and row 17 being the top of your embroidered motif. You read the scheme as follows:

Every square represents a crocheted stitch in your shawl. The white squares will not be embroidered. The coloured squares represent the cross stitches you’re going to make. in every square there’s a letter, corresponding to the colour you use for the embroidery.

For details regarding how you embroider read the Tips & Tricks document, or watch the video tutorial Esther made for week 2.

Separator

The separator is crocheted in rows 18-24 (rows 227-233). Take colour A and use a 4.0 mm crochet hook, if you tend to chain loosely. If it pulls too much or if your shawl becomes concave at the ends, switch to a larger hooksize for the separator.

Separator row 1 Keep your yarn at the wrong side of your shawl. Stick your hook top-down in between the 3rd and 4th st from row 22. Pull up a loop, stick your hook in between the 4th and 5th st from row 21, pull up a loop, pull through loop on hook (ss made). Pull up loop between the 5th and 6th st from row 20, make ss, pull up loop between the 6th and 7th st from row 19, make ss. Pull up loop between the 7th and 8th st from row 18, make ss. First diagonal line made.

Pull up loop between the 8th and 9th st from row 19, make ss. Pull up loop between the 9th and 10th st from row 20, make ss. pull up loop between 10th and 11th st from row 21, make ss. Pull up loop between 11th and 12th st from row 22, make ss, pull up loop between the 12th and 13th st from row 23, make ss.

Continue making diagonal ss lines. Every repeat consists of 10 slip stitches, 5 diagonally up and 5 down. End with making a ss over the 4th-to-last dc from row 20, meaning that your last diagonal line consists of 4 instead of 5 ss. Cut yarn.

Separator row 2 Pull up a loop in between the 3rd and 4th st from row 19, pull up a loop in between the 4th and 5th st from row 20, make ss, pull up a loop in between the 5th and 6th st from row 21, make ss (so over the ss from your other row!), pull up a loop in between the 6th and 7th st from row 22, make ss, pull up a loop in between the 7th and 8th st from row 23, make ss.

Pull up loop between the 8th and 9th st from row 22, make ss. Pull up loop between the 9th and 10th st from row 21, make ss. pull up loop between 10th and 11th st from row 20, make ss (so over the ss from your other row!). Pull up loop between 11th and 12th st from row 19, make ss, pull up loop between the 12th and 13th st from row 18, make ss.

Continue making diagonal ss lines. Every repeat consists of 10 slip stitches, 5 diagonally up and 5 down. End with making a ss over the 4th-to-last dc from row 22, meaning that your last diagonal line consists of 4 instead of 5 ss. Cut yarn.
