Free Crochet Pattern – Striped Triangular Shawl

Striped Triangular Shawl - Astral Yarn

SKILL LEVEL

Easy

HOOK

4.0 mm (G)

MATERIALS

Total of 512 Yards of Astral Yarn

This pattern is a good one for using up leftover yarn, which is what I was doing.  For this shawl, I used five different colors of our Astral Yarn.  If you happen to be using leftover yarn, use your smaller lengths of yarn first. The rows will get longer as you work, so you’ll want to save the yarns you have more of for later in the project.

The pattern instructions won’t tell you when to change yarn colors.  Change colors as you see fit, making sure to switch colors after completing a row so each stripe is a solid color.

NOTES

This shawl is worked from the center of the wingspan out and downward. Constructing it in this manner means that you can continue until the shawl is the desired size without making any modifications to the pattern.  Each row of the shawl increases by 4 stitches. There will be 1 stitch increased at each end and 2 stitches increased at the center point. Using locking ring markers to note the center 2 stitches will help prevent loosing your place. The pattern notes when to begin using them.

DIRECTIONS

Ch 4 loosely, 2 hdc in 2nd ch from hook, 2 hdc in each of the next 2 ch sts — 6 hdc.

Row 1: Ch 1, 2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in next st, [2 hdc in next st] twice, hdc in next st, 2 hdc in last st — 10 hdc.

Row 2: Ch 1, 2 hdc in 1st st, hdc in next 3 sts, [2 hdc in next st] twice, hdc in next 3 sts, 2 hdc in last st — 14 hdc.

Place locking stitch markers on the center 2 sts. To do this begin counting at one edge and place marker on the 7th and 8th hdc st.

Row 3: Ch 1, 2 hdc in 1st st, hdc in next 5 sts, 2 hdc in next st with stitch marker, replace marker on last st made, 2 hdc in next st with marker, replace marker on first st made, hdc in next 5 sts, 2 hdc in last st — 18 hdc.

Row 4: Ch 1, 2 hdc in 1st st, hdc in next 5 sts, 2 hdc in next st with stitch marker, replace marker on last st made, 2 hdc in next st with marker, replace marker on first st made, hdc in next 5 sts, 2 hdc in last st — 18 hdc.

*Continue working Row 4 until shawl is desired measurements. Be careful to place the stitch markers on the second of each increased stitch or the center point will begin to veer off in the wrong direction.

Finishing
Fasten off and weave in ends.  I always like to block my projects for a nicer finish.  To do this wash or simply wet your shawl, roll in a towel to absorb excess moisture, then stretch your shawl out on a flat surface. Gently shape your shawl to your satisfaction and let dry.  Did your shawl come out slightly smaller than you anticipated? It is made out of natural fiber so you can block it to larger dimensions.

Free Crochet Pattern – Two Tone Mitts

I love these fun two-tone gloves, each glove with colors opposite from the other.  The pattern is by Pollyfoofoo and her website is pollyfoofoo.blogspot.com.  Her pattern calls for a bulky yarn, but I’ve chosen our Astral Yarn, a dk weight yarn, which comes in some gorgeous colors.  I think you could mix-n-match almost any two colors of this Alpaca/Merino/Tencel blend yarn and be pleased with the combination.

NOTES

The arm is worked first, then you turn your work ¼ turn clockwise to work the hand. The thumb is created by skipping stitches and making a chain as a bridge over those stitches. These mitts are worked flat and seamed when finishing.

Do not skip the first stitch of the row when doing HDC. Treat it like a SC, to keep edges tidy and less holey. Even though you will be seaming the edges, it’s not a place you want holes.

Ch1 for turning chain on HDC.

The last stitch of every row is worked as you normally would (under both loops/legs). This keeps your edges tidy and less holey.

The stitches for the arm are SC but worked in BLO and FLO. The hand portion is mostly HDC, but worked in either the BLO or through the 3rd loop in the front (LIF).

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

 

Astral Two Tone Fingerless Gloves

DIRECTIONS

ARM:

Foundation Row: Chain 25 (or if you do chainless foundations, FSC 24, turn and go to Row 1).  Starting in the second chain of your hook, SC 24 stitches turn.

Row 1 (RS): – ch 1, SC BLO 23, regular SC in last st, turn (24)

Row 2 (WS): – ch 1, SC FLO 23, regular SC in last st, turn (24)

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until you have 25 rows. (End with a RS row)

For gloves bigger or smaller than pattern, you can make adjustments by making more or fewer rows, but please note that you will also have to make adjustments when time to do the hand portion by making more or fewer stitches.

HAND:

If you are going to make your hand with a different color, cut your arm yarn now, leaving an 18 inch tail for seaming later. If all one color, don’t cut.

With RS facing, turn work ¼ turn clockwise and attach new yarn color in the upper right hand stitch.  Work 27 HDC evenly into this edge, turn.

Row 1 (WS): – ch 1, not skipping the first stitch, work HDC into the 3rd LIF for 26 sts, and work the last HDC as normal, turn. (27)

Row 2 (RS):((thumbhole row)) ch 1, HDC BLO 8, DC 1, Tr 1, make a chain of 6, skip the 6 sts under them, Tr 1, DC 1, HDC BLO 8, HDC last st, turn. (27)

Row 3 (WS): – ch 1, not skipping the first stitch, work HDC into the 3rd LIF 11 sts, HDC into the back bump of each ch st (6), HDC into the 3rd LIF 9 sts,  and work the last HDC as normal, turn. (27)

Row 4 (RS): – ch 1, not skipping the first stitch, work HDC BLO 26 sts, and work the last HDC as normal, turn. (27)

Row 5 (WS): – work as Row 1

Row 6 (RS): – work as Row 4

Repeat rows 5 and 6 until hand portion reaches 2 inches tall and ending on a RS row. Cut yarn, leaving a tail to seam with. Give yourself 24 inches or so tail to seam with if you used 1 color for your mitts. If you did hand in different color you only need 10 inches or so to seam it, and then you’ll pick up your other color tail to seam the arm portion.

Before you do your seam, however, weave in your ends. It’s just easier that way.

SEAMING:

Then, fold WS together. Using clips/locking stitch markers to line up the stitches and hold your work together while you seam is a good idea, removing as you approach them. Use them as checkpoints to make sure you are seaming equally so your mitt seams won’t be lopsided. A mattress stitch works quite nicely.

Weave in your seaming yarn tail ends.

Featuring a bobble stitch, this pretty Half Moon Shawl has a bit of a textured look with lacy, open stitches, a luxuriously soft feel, and an elegant sheen that will make you feel like a queen!

Half Moon Shawl, Astral Yarn5 (640x538)

Adapted from a pattern from the Lion Brand Yarn website that calls for a super bulky yarn and Size N hook, I’ve used yarn from our Astral line and a Size J hook.

MATERIALS

625 Yards or 3.2 skeins of Astral Yarn
I think I’ll use a smaller hook next time to see if I can’t get the yardage down to three skeins.  The thicker the yarn, and the bigger the hook, the more yarn you’ll need so stepping down a few sizes should help to cut the yardage.  I will keep you posted.  On that note,  How Much Yarn Do I Need from the Fresh Stitches blog is a very helpful post for trying to calculate yardage required for different weights of yarn.

Free Crochet Pattern – Spring Petals Scarf

This pattern is called Spring Petals Scarf, a free pattern I found on Ravelry by Ragamuffin.  I adapted it for our Astral Yarn and love how it turned out!  I used Star Bright White Astral Yarn by The Alpaca Yarn Company.  The pattern called for a worsted weight yarn, and Astral Yarn is DK weight, also referred to as light worsted.  A little lighter than worsted weight, I figured the DK weight might make the scarf a little bit more lacy looking.  And so it did!
