CAL Summer Freshness – Part 1

This is the Day! Today we start the CAL all together and you can’t imagine how happy it is to see so many participants! It moves me a lot! 😊

Thank you all for being here for this wonderful adventure that we are going to live together!

Like you I will participate in the CAL and therefore make my 3rd shawl. For this version I chose the Cotton Candy Man, oh la la it will be so great!

So for starters, I will remind you of some tips:

  • My first advice is to place a marker (PM) in the middle stitch so that it will be easier to find the middle, plus I add PM in the instructions to guide you.
  • To make this shawl, you need to know the basic stitches but also the front and back post double crochet (FPdc and BPdc).
  • If needed you can see this article to know how to make FPdc and BPdc. « Apprendre le crochet : Les mailles en relief »
  • This shawl is crocheted in rows going back and forth.

Here we are, ready to start! If you need gĂ©nĂ©ral informations, please read this article CAL Summer Freshness Shawl – General information. The Abbreviations used and special stitches are explained here : Abbreviations and Stitch guide

Let’s do this !

Gauge:

  • after you crochet rows 1 to 4 included, the piece should measure 5 cm/2in at the highest part and  10 cm/4in at the widest part.

Instructions:

Remember : at each end of row you need to turn your work. PM is written to guide you and move your central marker.

Part 1 :

Make 4ch and join with a sl st to make a ring.

Row 1 (RS): Ch3 (counts for 1 dc), 5dc into the ring, ch2, 6dc into the ring. Turn. (12 dc, 1 ch2-sp)

Row 2 (WS): Ch3-2dc, 1dc in the next 5 dc, V in ch2-sp (PM it’s the center), 1dc in the next 5 dc, [3dc] on top of ch-3. (20 dc, 1 ch2-sp)

Row 3 : Ch3-2dc, ch 2, skip 2 dc, 1dc in the next 3dc, ch 2, skip 2 dc, 1 dc in the next 2 dc, V in ch2-sp PM, 1 dc in the next 2 dc, ch 2, skip 2 dc, 1 dc in the next 3 dc, ch 2, skip 2 dc, [3dc] on top of ch-3. (20 dc, 5 ch2-sp)

Row 4 : Ch3-2dc, 1 sc in the next dc, (Shell in ch2-sp, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in the next dc) x 2, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in the next dc, V in ch2-sp PM, 1 dc in the next dc, (skip 1 dc, 1 sc in the next dc, Shell in ch2-sp) x 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in the next dc, [3dc] on top of ch-3. (4 Shell, 12 dc, 6 sc, 1 ch2-sp)

Now is the time to check the gauge. The triangle should measure 5 cm in height and 10 cm at the base. If yours is larger, try using a smaller hook. If yours is too small, try using a larger hook.
