Fend off the
chill of overactive AC and cool temps with this Chevron Lace
Wrap! Made with fingering weight cotton it’s a not-too-warm shawl in the
fall and spring, and a warm breathable scarf in the winter. Best of all it’s made with a memorable and easy two line repeat – so
once you’ve got a few rows down, you can curl up on the couch with a
movie or take it on the road! It took me about three weeks to finish it
in between other projects, and I took it halfway across the country with
me on vacation – all I needed was the cone of yarn and a hook. But
simple as it is, it still looks interesting and so modern!
- US – H, 5.0 mm hook
- 800 – 1000 yards of fingering weight cotton (shown: Article 984C, Honeysuckle Cotton)
As written, the finished size is 68″ long and 14″ wide. Want
a narrower scarf or a wider shawl? Just add or subtract 20 stitches to
the starting row! Using an H hook with fingering yarn makes for lots of
drape and soft fabric, so if you bump up on the yarn thickness be sure
to bump up the hook size too.
dc cluster – With loop from previous stitch still on
hook, yo and insert hook into next st. Yo and pull loop through st, yo,
pull through first two loops on hook. (2 loops remain on hook.) Yo, and
skipping the next 3 sts, insert hook into the next st, yo, pull loop
through st, yo, pull through two loops on hook. (3 loops now on hook.)
Yo and pull through all 3 loops on hook to finish stitch. (In other
words, this is a dc2tog, skipping 3 sts between the two halves.)
