The Crochet Shawl is a time honor tradition in the crochet world. It really is, trust me on this one.  The Dreamscape crochet shawl is made with 3 different yarn colors to create a dreamscape feel.

The basis of creating this crochet shawl is knowing how to create a double crochet stitchIf you can master this stitch, then the rest is just counting and creating.

Yarn for Dreamscape Crochet Shawl 

I opted to use a DK weight yarn, Kindred by WeCrochet.  This is a lightweight yarn, 3 that is made from Baby Alpaca and Peruvian Pima Cotton, 115 yards, per skein (Colorway-Cactus).

I paired the Kindred Yarn with Premier Anti-Pilling Yarn. This yarn is from their Everyday Bobbin collection. It is a lightweight 100% Acrylic yarn, that comes in a variety of colors.  (Colorway- Peachy Keen).

You’ll need approx. 600 yards of yarn, to make a small/medium size shawl. Women U.S. Size 4-6.

If you ONLY use the premium yarn from WeCrochet, you’ll need 8-9 skeins (approx 900 yards).

Please know, all is fair in love and yarn, so fall in love with any lightweight yarn (3-4 weight), and let’s get started.

I USED 2 SKEINS OF KINDRED YARN AND 2 COLORS FROM THE BOBBIN OF PREMIER ANTI-PILLING YARN APPROX 600 YARDS. AGAIN, THIS MADE A SMALL SHAWL/SHAWLETTE.

Stitch for Pattern Change:

Pattern Stitch:
* dsdc- drop stitch double crochet

The dsdc is a cluster of three double crochet stitches, that will have 1 drop stitch double crochet in the center [dc, dsdc, dc]. This cluster is created in the chain 2 space.

dsdc- drop to the stitch below, from the previous round/row. You will complete 1 dc, 1 dsdc, 1dc in the same space. This is a cluster pattern, that is used throughout the project.

The drop stitch (dsdc) will create a tighter stitch pattern, as you can see in the illustration. This pattern will use a series of dsdc to create this effect throughout the shawl.

Alternate Size

To vary the size, continue making rows until you obtain your desired size. For a standard, one size fit most, continue until the wings span reaches approx. 74” across.

To increase size, after row 35, repeat the pattern starting from R27 and continue until you reach row R35 or until you reach the desired size.

Edging

Complete sc sts across the top edge or around the entire shawl to create a finished edge.

Optional Finish

Tassels:

Add tassels to the open spaces, around the shawl.

Hold together 4-6 strands, of all yarn colors. Cut yarn strands approx. 10 inches. Place strands through stitch, along the edge.  Create a Loop or knot, to secure strands to shawl.

This step will add length and nice embellishment to the shawl and it will pull all the colors together, nicely.

If necessary, even out any strands by cutting.
