I am so excited to introduce you to a young, up-and-coming crochet designer and her new shawl crochet pattern!
When I got Lisa’s request to guest blog a pattern I can’t tell you how thrilled I was! It was the same feeling I get when my nine year old son tells me he wants to do something entrepreneurial and creative. I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of her journey!
[wp_ad_camp_5]Besides being near my son’s age they both share a lineage back to the Czech Republic. . . how’s that for coincidence?!
Enjoy the Bobbles & BoHo Shawl Crochet Pattern and be sure to visit Lisa over at Geekly Chic Crochet, let her know you heard about her on Yarn by Yarn Obsession.
Back a few weeks ago when I decided to make this shawl, I started with JaydaInStitches’ Vintage Lace Shawl (inspiration goes to Jayda). As I made mine; I encountered problems, things to tweak, etc. It then evolved into my custom shawl. The one you see here today. ENJOY!!
- 3 Balls Charisma (approx. 327 yds) (or comparable yarn)
- 8mm or 9mm Crochet Hook
- Tapestry/Darning needle
- Ruler for tassels (optional)
Pattern Level: Beginner
Row 1: Ch 6, tr into 5th ch from hook, ch 2, tr 2 more times in same ch, turn (3)
Row 2: Ch 5, tr in 1st st, ch 2, 2 tr into same st Ch 1, tr2tog in ch-2 space, ch 1, 2 tr in last st, ch 2, 2 tr in same st, turn
Row 3: Ch 5, tr in 1st st, ch 2, 2 tr in same st, *Ch 1, tr2tog in next ch-1 sp, Rep from * into all ch-1 sps, ending [2 tr, ch 2, tr 2] in last st
Rep Row 3 for pattern. (16 rows and 10 tassels used all 3 skeins)
NOTE: Using more yarn will make a larger shawl so work accordingly.
Pull up yarn in smallest tip of shawl. Ch 1, 5 tr in same space. Insert hook in the next ch 5 along the the sides. Sc one. Go on to next row along the side, tr 5. Rep this until you reach the 1st corner, sc, 5 tr, sc, 5 tr in corner. Repeat this until you reach the tip once again!!
Cut 10-12 in strands of yarn. You will need 2 strands for each individual tassel. (For example: If you want 10 tassels, you’ll need 20 strands of yarn). Insert your hook in the ch5/final stitch and pull your 2 strands through to your side. Now take your ends and pull them all the way through; just like fastening off.
