Shells and Stones Cabled Shawl: new pattern



Crochet Cables will always be in trend. They are fun to make and they add a nice texture to crochet fabric. Over last couple of years classical crochet cables were rethought, transformed and mixed with overlay crochet. They can be made over any stitch. And that’s even more fun. My Shells and Stones Cabled shawl is an example of such “new cables”.

Shells and Stones shawl pattern was designed exclusively for Happily Hooked Magazine. And now when copyright came back to me, it can finally be published as a stand-alone pattern.

Instructions were polished, and I have added two charts (yay!), rectangular version of the shawl and a tutorial of how to make it with two colors. A step-by-step photo tutorial is also available in the end of the pattern. Pictures show tricky places and explain placement of the stitches.

Shells and Stones Shawl is available with 30% discount HERE on Ravelry and HERE on Etsy through Monday, January 28, 2019. The price you see is final and no codes are needed. After that day the pattern will be listed at a regular price.

Shells and Stones Shawl has an asymmetrical triangular shape with gentle cables and bobbles placed over airy “linen stitch” fabric. The pattern is repetitive, and once you get the rhythm it becomes pretty mindless. 

Shawl’s body is made on one color, and then linen border is added along two sides, with a gentle lace edging.

The pattern was written for a fine and soft yarn (fingering), and in combination with a slightly larger hook it creates a very draping and “squishy” fabric.

For my sample I used Our Tribe yarn by Scheepjes in two shades: 880 Silver Birch (3 skeins) and 882 Blue Flower Haze (1 skein), and 4mm crochet hook which is slightly bigger for this yarn.

Our Tribe yarn is available for purchase via local Scheepjes shops and online retailers:

Wool Warehouse*, Deramores*, Black Sheep Wools* (all three in UK, international shipping)
Caro’s Atelier* (NL and Europe)
Taemombo (US and Canada)
Knotty House* (Canada)

Laura Jackson was helping me with testing, and she chose Blue Flower Haze in combination with Iris Garden.

And Astrid Keijser went for bright orange in combination with cream.

Shells and Stones pattern can be easily adapted for a rectangular shape, and I’ve included both written row-by-row instructions and another chart to help you. If you decide to make a blanket, please tag me, or share a picture with me. I would like to see, and I bet it will feel great!

I used single color for a cabled stitch pattern, but it can also be made with two colors at the same time. Here is the effect you can achieve with 2 yarns.

In case you would like to recreate it either with triangular or rectangular shape – please, check a detailed tutorial in the end of the pattern explaining how to use two yarns and how to change color in the end of the rows.
