I am finally finished with my Aquamarine Mesh Shawl. I started this late last year, but was put on hold for a while as the yarn I used for this was quite thin and the ball needed rewinding as I have shown you in this post.
I am currently "obsessed" with making shawls as we have air conditioning in the office that would rival Antartica in coldness (okay.. I'm exaggerating..). It can be quite hard to concentrate with work when you are chilled to the bones. :P
Here it is.
The shawl measures 17" wide and 67" long and I used a 4.0mm hook.
The pattern for this is quite simple. It is just a mesh. You just have to make a long chain, multiple of 3.
1. Dc in the 7th chain from the hook, * ch 2, skip next 2 ch, dc in the next ch, then repeat from * across, turn.
2. Ch 5 (this counts as dc, ch 2), skip next ch-2 space, dc in the next dc, * ch 2, skip next ch-2 space, dc in the next dc, then repeat from * across, ending with dc on the 3rd ch of turning ch, turn.
Then you just have to repeat row 2 until your desired length is reached.
As a border, I crochet two rows of dc on both edges.
'Til next project, crochet friends! :)
