Skill Level: Easy
Lion Brand Cotton Bamboo in Cherry Blossom – 2 skeins
Lion Brand Cotton Bamboo in Magnolia – 1 skein
Hook size H/8 – 5.00mm
Button – 3/4”
Stitch markers – optional but recommended
2 1/2 shells and 6 rows = 4”
15 1/2” wide by 33” long
Ch – chain
Sc – single crochet
Dc – double crochet
St, sts – stitch, stitches
Sk – skip
- Beginning chains count as stitches
- Always make your first stitch in the very first stitch in the row.
- I recommend using stitch markers to easily keep your rows even. Place a stitch marker in the the first stitch of a row, and you will know where to crochet your last stitch when you get back to that end. It’s especially helpful to put a stitch marker in the top of the chain 3 at the beginning of that row (see Row 3 below) as it can be confusing where to do your last stitch in the following row.
- The Cotton Bamboo yarn makes a very drapey, stretchy fabric so measurements may vary.
- There is no need for a button hole. The button will fit right into the stitches on the other side of the shawl.
