ABOUT Hazeldell is a fingering-weight shawl utilizing short-rows and two main increase rows to create a gentle crescent shape. My goal was to design a striking wrap with an unconventional shape that is achievable for most skill levels. This piece uses fundamental crochet stitches that any beginner crocheter can master; however, when combined with thoughtful increase techniques, produces a stunning wrap without the complicated stitchwork.
Main Color (green): 4 hanks of WeCrochet Hawthorne Fingering in Eliot; 80% Fine Superwash Highland wool, 20% Polyamide; 357 yds (327 m) per 3.5 oz (100 g) hank; or 1320 yds (1208 m) of fingering weight yarn
Accent Color (white): 1 ball of WeCrochetPalette in Bare; 100% Peruvian Highland Wool; 231 yds (211 m) per 50 g (1.7 oz) ball; or 10 yds (10 m) of fingering weight yarn
Hook: Size U.S. F/5 (3.75 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge Notions: Tapestry needle, 2 locking stitch markers ABBREVIATIONS Written in U.S. Crochet terms ch-sp: chain space dc: double crochet yoslst: yarn over slip stitch - Yarn over, insert hook into 3rd loop of designated st, yarn over, draw loop through stitch and immediately through both loops on hook rep: repeat sc: single crochet sk: skip slst: slip stitch st(s): stitches
GAUGE 4 x 4” (10 x 10 cm) = 25 sts x 18 rows in linen stitch, blocked, where each sc and each ch count as a stitch
PATTERN NOTES Skill Level: Intermediate When pattern indicates to work a sequence in parentheses, all instructions within the parentheses will be worked into the same stitch.
For example, "(sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch-sp" means to work 1 sc and 1 ch and then 1 more sc all into the same ch-sp, a method of increasing.
Turning Chain: For the entirety of the linen stitch portions, the turning chain (chain 2) counts as 1 sc and 1 ch. Stitch Counts: Stitch counts are listed after each row. If no stitch count is given, there has been no change since the previous row. Reversible: There is no right side or wrong side of this fabric. You choose which side to wear as the “right side”. Changing Colors: When changing colors, work your final stitch of the row with the old color as usual, but use the new color for the final yarn over to close the stitch. Then, drop the old color and continue crocheting with the new color.
Finished wrap has a 67” (170 cm) wingspan and a 20” (51 cm) depth, after blocking.
