Aurelia Crochet Shawl

THE Crochet-Along for AUTUMN 2020 will be hosted here:
Life Long Crochet on FB.

This tip-up triangular Aurelia Crochet Shawl is made up of modular fan motifs that are join-as-you-go, crocheting to the desired width of the long edge.

You can use any yarn weight from aran, worsted, or DK to fingering, sock yarn, or lace weight.

The instructions come in US terminology; however, UK ones will be developed soon. You can buy the pattern in my Ravelry store.

This is not a video pattern.  There will be video tutorials for the challenging spots in the near future. Subscribe to Swatch On! Swatch Off! to get notifications when these tutorials are published.

This shawl took extensive experimenting to get it right. The original stitch diagram was a hand-drawn one and it was worked from the long edge of the shawl to the tip, which means 300 plus chains to start…every crocheter’s nightmare.

It was inspired by this shawl.

Not my work.

I got permission to write her version in English from the German crocheter who made this pictured one and who made a crochet video based on a Turkish video she had found. I looked for the original and it was gone. I did find two other web-pages that showed the hand-drawn diagram and a photo of a shawl…but NO pattern. In the end, I had to change things, to make the design and the pattern instructions my own.

So I thought I’d re-engineer it to go in the other direction. This means that it does look a little different.

In the Aurelia shawls pictured above, I or my friend Rebecca used either fingering weight (#2) or DK weight (#3) yarn.

The details for this pattern are in my Ravelry Store.

There are two edging possibilities for the Aurelia Crochet Shawl. The one pictured above is the wide edging. Below, you can see the narrow edging.
