My daughter insisted I make her a shawl with a hood instead of just a flap like I did the The Bat-terfly shawl so I got to work.

 

This shawl reminds me of a net so staying with the theme of the name Butterfly, I went with Butterfly Net Shawl.

 

If you see any errors in this pattern be sure to tell me right away and I will fix it! I still plan on making a video tutorial for this shawl as well, but since I’ve been away letting my arms heal, I decided not to wait to release the pattern until the tutorials are done, but to give it to you now!

 

Thank you for all of the sweet comments and well wishes! So glad to have a pattern for you. Hope you enjoy it!

 

 

 

 

Each Yarn cake is 1000 meters.

 

YARN: I used a Yarn cake from YarnArt “Flowers” yarn, color 261

**NOTE! On the repeat on the end of row 14, do now ch 3 and sl st in the bottom of the ending ch 3, just chain 3 and sl st in last ch 3 from now on.

 


 

As your piece gets bigger the top part of your shawl should flatten out. When it does it pulls your peak rows closer together. So I recommend to change the pattern slightly to help make up for this. Change to the new repeat rows to the ones below.

 

Row 30

(repeat of row 14 with some changes)

sl st in ch 3 | ch 3 and sl st in ch 3 | repeat until you reach your chain 5 space

* ch 3 and sl st in ch 5. ch 2 and DC 4, ch 1, DC 4 in next ch 5 space. CH 1 and DC 4, ch 1, DC 4 in next ch 5 sp. Ch 2 and sl st in next ch 5 sp. | ch 3 and sl st in next ch 3 sp | repeat 4 more times * repeat for the row. Ch 3 and turn

 

Row 31

sl st in ch 3 | ch 3 and sl st in ch 3 | repeat until you reach your chain 2 space

* ch 3 and sl st in ch 2 sp. | ch 5 and sl st in ch 1 | repeat 2 more times. Ch 5 and sl st in ch 2 sp. |ch 3 and sl st in ch 3 | repeat 4 more times. * repeat for row. Ch 3 and turn

 

Row 32

sl st in ch 3 | ch 3 and sl st in ch 3 | repeat until you reach your chain 5 space

* ch 3 and sl st in ch 5. ch 5 and sl st in ch 5 ch 3 and sl st in ch 5. Ch 3 and sl st in next ch 3. * repeat for row. Ch 3 and turn

 

Row 33 Ending of set & repeat

sl st in ch 3 *| ch 3 and sl st in ch 3 | repeat until you reach your chain 2 space

ch 2 and DC 4, ch 1, DC 4 in next ch 5 sp. Ch 2 and sl st in next ch 3 sp. CH 3 and sl st in next ch 3 sp * repeat for row CH 3 and turn.

 

Repeat rows 30 – 33 for 3 more sets then it will be time to start your hood.

 

Cut your yarn and attach it on the first top stitch. We’ll be using the top stitches along the top of our shawl.

 

 


 

 

IMPORTANT

Be sure to mark the first in last st of your hood! I didn’t and I messed up and had to create a border to make my hood big enough. Which you can too if you like. But if you mark it and do it correctly, (unlike me) it should be big enough.

 

When I had a color change on my skein, I would add about 4 rows to the hood. My hood got to tall though and I had to stop short of all my color changes, so I recommend measuring how long you need your hood.

 

I would allow about 30 cms or 11 ½ inches in length for the hood, so measure it out and make your color changes accordingly.

 

Sew your hood closed

When you’re ready to sew your hood closed fold in half and put 2 sc’s & ch 1 in each ch 3 space.

 

1st row of HOOD

Use a single crochet attachment to connect your yarn. Then ch 1. Sc and ch 1 in the next 6 stitches which should bring you up to your ch 5 sp before your large space. You will skip the 1st st and sc and ch 1 in next. Repeat 1 more time. Then sc and ch 1 then sk a st and sl st in large space. Sc and ch 1 in DC side st, sc and ch 1 in next big space. Sc and ch 1 in next large sp, Continue to sc and ch 1 in all large side sts until you reach the next ch 5 sp again. Now you do the same only in reverse. I had 64 sts at the end. Ch 3 and turn.

 

2nd row and on for HOOD

All the rest of the rows you just need to ch 3 and sl st.

 

If you want to make the hood deeper or just to add a border either way then this is what I did.

 

I marked both 1st and last stitch of each side of hood. Then sl st to attach your yarn, ch 3 and sl st in next side st. repeat until you reach marker on other side. Ch 3 and turn, sl st in next ch 3 sp.

 

 

I did mine for a total of 6 rows do more if you want a deeper hood, but if it’s just a border I’d recommend doing only 2 rows.

 

 


 

Attach your yarn back to your shawl and continue until you have another color change that you want to add to your hood. Repeat the process. Be sure to keep your places marker so you don’t forget where you cut your yarn.
