Twister Scarf or Shawl : Part 1

E1171F1E-4533-4120-856F-89B385D8A3A7

In these difficult times of staying home and isolation, many of us have more time to crochet, but possibly less funds to buy patterns, let alone how we’re feeling emotionally. But I do find that crochet does relax me and lessen any anxiety and this pattern is very repetitive once you have worked out how it goes, so sit back, enjoy and relnbsp;I hope you like the scarf, I have worn mine a lot and as the colours change throughout the scarf, you can make it look like a different colour according to how you wear it.

I have only made a scarf, however there are also instructions on how to easily adapt this pattern to crochet a shawl as well. Let me know how you go if you make a shawl, as I would love to feature your photo on here and my Instagram @crochetlovemelbourne also feel free to DM or email me with any comments or corrections !

GAUGE 

6 shell arcs x 14 rows = 4 inches (10.5 cm)

Ch3, sc section = 8 x ch3, sc = 4 inches (10.5 cm) x 4rows = 1.5 inches (4cm)

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

Note: I chose to make it very long to wear it doubled and to incorporate all the beautiful Twister colours, but you could actually make two scarves from one Twister if you like!

PATTERN INSTRUCTIONS

LoveCrafts

  1. Foundation Rows 

Begin with the central motif, you will work outwards in a triangular shape then complete the sides to make a rectangle.

Note: If you wish to make a shawl instead of a scarf you can just continue to repeat rows in this manner to make it wider which will result in a triangle shape.

To start : Ch 10, slst into first ch to make a ring 

Row 1 : 3ch, 3dc, 3ch, 4dc into ring , 3ch, slst into ring, turn and work back and forth from now on ( see below each row instruction for corresponding photo)

Row 2 : 3ch, increase 1 at right ( 3dc between the first and second dc) 3ch, central increase (3dc, 3ch, 3dc) into centre, 3ch, increase 1 at left (4dc between the 3dc and 3ch)

Row 3 : 3ch, increase 1 at right ( as in previous row), 3ch, 1sc in space, 3ch, central increase ( as in previous row), 3ch, 1sc into space, 3ch, increase at left ( as in previous row)

Row 4 : 3ch, 1 increase at right *3ch, 1sc into space* twice, 3ch, central increase, repeat from * to * (twice), 3ch, 1 increase at left.

You can now see the pattern starting to develop. You will continue the central increases throughout the scarf. The two side increases will continue if you want to make a shawl. If you’re making a scarf you will stop side increases once you reach the width of the scarf you would like (in my case 17 rows)

Row 12: similar to row 8, except sc into the 3rd sc of two lots of shells on each side 

Row 13 : same as row 9 except 3ch, 1sc x 11 times on each side

 Rows 14-17 Continue in the same manner, simultaneously working the side and centre increases as in the first four rows. The motifs must be repeated symmetrically in relation to the centre (see photo below after row 17) Work 17 rows to obtain the width of 16 inches (41 cm) or you can of course alter the number of rows worked for your desired width

img_8416-1

For a TRIANGULAR SHAWL continue as in the previous pattern, increasing at both sides and centre, keeping a line of shells parallel to the central increase and a line of shells along the edge of the shawl so the triangle will just get wider. Work until desired size, fasten off and weave in ends.
