Sidewalk ShawlPattern translation
Hi arachnids! We are back with a new pattern to share. Today is the Sidewalk Shawl.
This shawl needs a low-intermediate crochet skill. In fact, it uses basic stitches (single crochet, double crochet and chain stitch) so I would recommend this before doing the Yes Yes Shawl for a beginner.
I fell in love with this shawl a year ago but I wanted to make it perfect with a perfect yarn and color. And I found it with Cascade 220 Superwash in Lake Chelan Heather color, a 100% merino wool so soft and fluffy. I used 3 skeins and a half with a 5.5 mm hook. This yarn has a beautiful color that has little specks.
As you already know, this open patterns need to be blocked so you can really see it shine. You can see this in the before and after blocking picture. This yarn grows a lot when wet so be careful when handling it so it won’t stretch or twist.
The shawl ended up so big that I ran out of blocking mats so I had to buy more (my house is too small for this shawl!).
The pattern comes from Red Heart in text but Marly Bird shared a super useful diagram and even a step-by-step video.
If you want to follow the video, you can watch it here how she makes this shawl.
Row 1> 1:30
Row 2> 7:50
Row 3> 11:30
Row 4> 15:00
Row 5> 18:50
Row 6> 23:20
Row 8> 30:53
Row 9> 35:28
Row 10> 39:40
The rest of the shawl is made repeating sections of these 10 initial rows.
This shawl is so versatile you can use it around your arms, as a big scarf, over the shoulders, etc. You can change the length of the fringe so it can have other uses (my fringe is 11.81 inches).
If you want to know where I got the pin, you can find it here.
Happy February crocheting!
