Lupine Shawl CAL – Part 2

In part 2 of the Lupine Shawl we will start making the actual Lupine Shawl.

If you’ve missed out on all the the details (like supplies, stitches used, and the gauge) you can get them all HERE (or the image below).

You ready to get in to it? Ok, here we go!

I’ve included photos of what your Lupine Shawl should look like after each of the first 5 rows.

I’m not going to lie to you, these first few rows will be the hardest rows for you. Getting into the rhythm of how to start and finish each row along with where to place the stitches takes some getting use to. You will do fine because once you’ve done it the few times it will be second nature.

Pattern

You’re going to want to start with a Magic Circle. I know that there are some of us who have difficulty with this technique. I’ve been doing it for so long that I can’t start my Lupine Shawl without doing it. I’ve tried.

Row 1.) In MC, 5Tr, Ch 2, 5Tr. (10)

Row 2.) Turn, (Str, Tr, Ch 1, Tr) in 1st St, *Ch 1, Sk 1, Tr, repeat from * until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from *until last St, (Tr Ch 1, 2Tr) in last St. (20)

Row 3.) Turn, (Str, Tr, Ch 1, Tr) in 1st St, Ch 1, Sk 1, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from * until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, Ch 1, Sk 1, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from * until last St, (Tr, Ch 1, 2Tr) in last St. (30)

Tip – The Tr goes into the Ch 1 of the previous row.

Row 4.) Turn, (Str, Tr, Ch 1, Tr) in 1st St, *Ch 1, Sk 1, Tr, repeat from * until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from * until last St, (Tr, Ch 1, 2Tr) in last St. (40)

Row 5.) Turn, (Str, 3Tr) in 1st St, Tr in next St and across until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, Tr in next St and across until last St, (4Tr) in last St. (50)

Your Lupine Shawl should look similar to the picture below after Row 5. If you’re using hand-dyed yarn or a different color, you’ll want to switch skeins at the end of this row.

Row 6.) Turn, (Str, 3Tr) in 1st St, Tr in next St and across until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, Tr in next St and across until last St, (4Tr) in last St. (60)

Row 7.) Turn, (Str, Tr, Ch 1, Tr) in 1st St, Ch 1, Sk 1, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from * until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, Ch 1, Sk 1, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from * until last St, (Tr, Ch 1, 2Tr) in last St. (70)

Row 8.) Turn, (Str, Tr, Ch 1, Tr) in 1st St, *Ch 1, Sk 1, Tr, repeat from * until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from * until last St, (Tr, Ch 1, 2Tr) in last St. (80)

Row 9.) Turn, (Str, Tr, Ch 1, Tr) in 1st St, Ch 1, Sk 1, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from * until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, Ch 1, Sk 1, *Tr, Ch 1, Sk 1, repeat from * until last St, (Tr, Ch 1, 2Tr) in last St. (90)

Row 10.) Turn, (Str, 3Tr) in 1st St, Tr in next St and across until Ch 2 Sp, (2Tr, Ch 2, 2Tr) in Ch 2 Sp, Tr in next St and across until last St, (4Tr) in last St. (100)

Like at the end of Row 5, if you changed yarn, you’ll want to change skeins again. I would also advice to weave in the ends as you go. It is much easier to do it as you go but if you’re anything like me you’ll wait until the end and bitch about it.

Part 3 can be found HERE.

Winter Hills Cellphone Bag – Free Crochet Pattern

You’re going to love the Winter Hills Cellphone Bag this summer! It is the perfect accessory to have with the cute outfit that doesn’t have pocket (yes – all we want is pockets).

****Post contains affiliate links – which means if you make a purchase from the links below, I will get a small percentage of the sales at no additional cost to you****

Summer Vibes Blog Hop

Featured the Summer Vibes Blog Hop hosted by Fosbas Designs. You can get all the detail about the event HERE.

Summer Vibes Pattern Bundle

You can also purchase the Summer Vibes Pattern Bundle with all 33 patterns for only $12.99 too!

The Yarn

The yarn that I used for the Winter Hills Cellphone Bag is Lion Brand’s 24/7 Cotton in colorways Café Au Lait & Ecru.

This was my first time using this yarn. I really enjoyed using it, I am slightly disappointed with the selection of colors that Joann’s has in store though.

Julie of J2CraftworksLLC tested the Winter Hills Cellphone Bag for me. She used the colorways Denim and Ecru for hers featured in the photo below.

Supplies Needed

165 Yards Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton
F/3.75mm Crochet hook
Yarn needle
Scissors
Measuring tape
1” Button
Stitch makers

Stitches Used

Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Sc – Single Crochet
Sl St – Slip Stitch
St(s) – Stitch(es)
RS – Right Side
WS – Wrong Side

Gauge & Finished Size(s)

Gauge: 20 Sts x 20 rows = 4”

Size: Approx. 4.5” wide x 7.5” tall

Pattern Notes

Written in US crochet terms.

Worked in the round.

Ch1 does not count as a stitch.

Color change is done on the repeat of round 3.

Tip – carry yarn along the inside of bag if changing colors.

Tip – to keep a neat edge, do the Ch 1 of round and then pick up the new color. This will also keep the yarn on the inside of the bag.
