Birds of Paradise Shawl, free crochet pattern from Suvi's Crochet

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.

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.
