Birds of Paradise Shawl Diagrams

Difficulty: Intermediate ✦✦✦✦✧

Here are the full chart diagrams for my latest free crochet pattern: the Birds of Paradise Shawl.


The charts are broken into two parts: Rows 1-21 and Rows 17-41. Rows 17-21 are repeated on both charts to better orient yourself as you begin the second chart.



If you would like printer-friendly charts, please consider purchasing a PDF of this pattern.



Here are the written directions for this pattern.



Gauge:

  • 14 dc in 8 rows makes a 2 inch (5 cm) square.

Gauge is not important for this pattern unless you are trying to match the gradient of the yarn in the sample (950m of 4-ply gradient yarn from Melodyy by Wolltraum on etsy.)



Special Stitches:

  • half treble crochet (htc) = YO 2 times, insert your hook in the indicated stitch and pull up a loop, pull a loop through 2 loops on the hook, pull a loop through the remaining 3 loops on the hook.

  • treble crochet (tc)

  • double treble crochet (dtc) = YO 3 times, (pull a loop through 2 loops on the hook) 4 times.

  • half double treble crochet (hdtc) = YO 3 times, insert your hook in the indicated stitch and pull up a loop, (pull a loop through 2 loops on the hook) twice, pull a loop through the remaining 3 loops on the hook.

  • standing bobble = ch 3, dc, ch 2, sl st in the bottom of the dc.
