Little 15 Shawl

Name

Little 15 by Depeche Mode relates to the construction of the shawl

Shawl

On da Hook: October 18, 2014
Off da Hook: November 29, 2014
Finished Size: 80-inch Horizon x 19-inch Depth
Pattern: Improvised by Hooker Leo
Hooks: US I/9 & US J/10

I started this shawl during my last crochet class with Sheila. I was fired before I could show her how to finish hers, but here is my finished product. I was going to donate it to the store, but since I have been banned, I guess I will try to sell it or donate it. This shawl was constructed with yarn scraps that were laying around the store.

The construction is from side to side, working half double crochets in the back post. One side is longer than the other because I screwed up the decrease, but it doesn’t make much difference to the finished project. I alternated row counts per color in the following multiples: 15, 5, and 3 until such time the color was exhausted. The border is a 5 double crochet shell, single crochet on the outside and a crab stitch around the neck. The border was crocheted with a US J/10 hook.

As for the price; make me an offer. Since I did not pay for the yarn, I am willing to let it go cheaply.

Regarding the Grey Yarn: I think it’s Malabrigo, but without a label, I can’t be sure; Mi Amigo Yarn: I don’t remember if that is the blue, maroon or the multicolor. The Blue Yarn had to be double stranded to match the weight of the others.

The yarn weights appeared to be very similar but when working with them there were some subtle differences. I managed to get past the differences in weight by crocheting very loosely. Again, the difference in yarn weights doesn’t make that much of a difference in wearing of the shawl.
