RUFFLED SHAWL/CAPE BY LINDA KAYE SMITH

Dec. 21, 2009 - LKS-001

Based on Lion Brand’s Day to Night Poncho & Caron Brand’s Ruffle Scarf with Bliss Patterns

 

GAUGE:

9 dc + 5 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky Yarn, Weight #5, 140g/153yds per skein. Shawl as shown in pictures required 14 skeins of Wool-Ease Chunky #5 or equivalent weight.

Crochet Hook Size: K (10-1/2 MM) is what I use to get this gauge. Check your gauge!

 

 

Body

MAKE 37 ROWS FOR 33 INCH LENGTH FROM NECKLINE. I’m showing the rows with the number of increases for each row since that helps me keep track. I use a ‘flag’ beside the row I’m working on.

 

Ch 26 (Make 2) Note: When adding the 2 dc at end of rows, I add the extra dc in the next to last stitch and then end the row with a double crochet. This reduces the ‘hole’ that is often visible when you end a row with an increase.

 

Row 1 Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across; turn = 24 dc

Row 2 Ch 3, dc in each dc across; turn (Tie a piece of yarn through a stitch to mark as Right Side)

Row 37 Ch 3, dc across and finish off. You will have 160 dc

Hood (Add on to each body half)

Attach new yarn with slip stitch to first ch on opposite side of starting ch of body

Row 1 Ch 3, dc in next 6 ch, 2 dc in next chain, (dc in next 7 ch, 2 dc in next ch) twice; turn – 27 dc

Row 2 Ch 3, dc across; turn – 27 dc

Row 3, Ch 3, dc across; turn – 27 dc

Row 4 Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 8

dc, (2 dc in next dc, dc in next 8 dc)

twice; turn – 30 dc

Row 5 Ch 3, dc across; turn – 30 dc

Row 6, Ch 3, dc across; turn – 30 dc

Row 7 Ch 3, dc in next 8 dc, 2 dc in next dc,

(dc in next 9 dc, 2 dc in next dc) twice;

turn – 33 dc

Row 8 Ch 3, dc across; turn – 33 dc

Row 9 Ch 3, dc across; turn – 33 dc

Row 10 Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next

10 dc, (2 dc in next dc, dc in next 10 dc)

twice; turn – 36 dc

Row 11 Ch 3, dc across; turn – 36 dc

Row 12 Ch 3, dc across; - 36 dc Finish Off

 

NOTE TO MAKE A HOOD WITH A MORE ROUNDED CENTER, mark the edge that will become the back seam, then reduce one dc on center back edge, beginning with Row 8. This will make the seam curve more and reduce the pointy appearance. If you like the point, then just use the pattern as above.

 

FINISHING

Sew in all loose ends. Assemble the two pieces on a counter top or other flat area so that you can see the lineup of the stitches. Line up bottom edges and neck edges and top edges and pin in place so that stitches are matching. BE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT SIDE UP SO YOU CAN SEE HOW YOUR STITCHING IS LOOKING. THIS WILL BE THE CENTER BACK SEAM SO YOU WANT IT MATCHED AND SMOOTH.

 

Thread a yarn needle with yarn and beginning at bottom edge, weave back and forth from left side to right side pulling the seam tightly together and making sure that stitches line up properly. I use small stitches to be sure that the double crochets are pulled together and that there are not any ‘holes’ visible. Sew the pieces together from bottom edge to top edge adding some extra stitches at neck where the hood portion was added to the body portion.

 

Sew in all loose ends. Decide which side is best after you sew the seams together. Whichever side you choose, mark it so that you have it facing you when you start the ruffle.

 

RUFFLED EDGE

With right side facing you. Begin at left hand lower edge and continue around the outside edge.

Row 1, Attach yarn with slip stitch to a dc on bottom edge of left side. Single crochet around to

beginning stitch; when you come to the edge of a row, just put two single crochets in stitch or

whatever it takes to keep the item flat. Continue around the outer edge and slip stitch into

beginning stitch – do not turn

Row 2, Ch 3; dc into ch3 just completed; then 2 dc in each sc around, end with slip stitch in

beginning ch 3 stitch – do not turn

Row 3, 2 dc in next dc and 1 dc in next dc; continue alternating 2 dc and 1 dc around in this way –

do not turn

Row 4, slip stitch in each stitch around and fasten off.

WEAR AND ENJOY!

What size person does this fit? I really like this. I wear 1-2X, so I'd hate to get this all made just to find out it doesn't fit. Also, I am 5'10" tall but it doesn't look like that is a problem.

Hi, I'm glad you like the pattern. It is quite full around so it will fit just about any size. And, I am 5'9" and it come almost to my knees. If you want it longer, you can add more rows following the increases called for. Just be sure to buy more yarn! I've made 5 of these using Lion Brand's Wool Ease Chunky and now plan to make one using Jiffy. It needs the #5 weight yarn.

Ooooh, I'll bet this will fit me, and you must have been reading my mind, because I thought I would use Jiffy also. It's a wonderful yarn to work with and I have lots of skeins I bought on sale. I've been saving it for large projects.

This is exactly what I am looking for but I want to add a open neck turtle neck that velcors shut. Im going to try my luck at this thanks for sharing

 

This sounds like a nice plus. I'd be afraid that the velcro would stick to anything it touched. Have you tried this before?

I've already got your pattern printed out but I haven't made it yet. I am a quarter inch short of five feet so it would be at least mid-calf on me--and it wouldn't take many extra rows to make it full length.
