Row 1

SCFS 54 Or CH 55 and ch 1 and turn,

sc in 2nd ch from hook and in all 54 sts. Ch 2 and turn

 

The ch 2’s at the beginning of your rows won’t count as a stitch in this pattern.

 

 

 

Row 2

HDC in the first 7 sts.

Ch 1 and WITHOUT skipping a stitch, BFS five times (see special st), this will take a total of 10 stitches. Don’t forget to do the ch 1 to end the BFS or else the stitch will turn into a decrease.

 

HDC in the next 5 sts.

CH 1 and skip a st,

then |BS, ch 1 and skip a stitch| repeat 4 more times for a total of 5 BS’s.

After the last BS you naturally ch 1 so just skip a st and HDC in next 5 sts.

 

We’re going to do the next set of BFS’s, remember that before you start to crochet your BFS’s that you first CH 1.

 

So after your 5 HDC’s you’ll ch 1

and WITHOUT skipping a st,

BFS five times, this will take a total of 10 stitches.

HDC in your last 7 sts. Ch 2 and turn.

 

 

 

Row 3

We’ll work our 7 HDC’s from last row as follows….

HDC in the first 5 HDC’s.

FPDC on the post of the next HDC.

HDC in the final HDC.

 

CH 1 and skipping the first big space…..

Now we’ll be using the wings of our BFS’s from now on when crocheting our BFS’s.

 

If you take a look at your project from the side and spread it apart you will see there are two little spaces that are separated only by a strand of yarn. This is what I am referring to as the “wings of the stitch”. Like before the BFS uses two stitches to create, these two “wing spaces” will be what we’ll be using to make our BFS’s from now on. You should have 5 of these spaces.

 

So create your 5 BFS’s as you did before using the wing spaces,

then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC onto the post of the next HDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC onto the post of the next HDC,

HDC in the last HDC. Ch 1.

 

Skip the BEAN part of the stitch, we’ll be putting our next BEAN st in the space beside them. Repeat 4 times until you have all 5 beans.

Then we’ll be crocheting our next HDC section like we did before.

 

 

HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC onto the post of the next HDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC onto the post of the next HDC,

HDC in the last HDC. Ch 1.

 

Which brings you back up to the BFS section. Skip over to the first set of wings and using the wing spaces create your 5 BFS’s on this side of design.

 

We’ll work the last 7 HDC’s as follows….

HDC in first HDC,

FPDC on post of next HDC.

HDC in last 5 HDC’s. Ch 2 and turn.

 

In hopes NOT to confuse you, I will be calling the FPDC’s we did on the last row BPDC’s for this row. The reason for this is because our FPDC’s are now facing the other way now. So they are technically BPDC’s for this row.

 

 

 

Row 4

HDC in the first 5 HDC’s.

BPDC on the post of the next BPDC.

HDC in the final HDC.

 

CH 1 and skipping the first big space create your 5 BFS’s as you did before using the 5 the wing spaces.

 

Then HDC in the HDC,

then BPDC onto the post of the next BPDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then BPDC onto the post of the next BPDC,

HDC in the last HDC. Ch 1.

 

Skip the BEAN part of the stitch, we’ll be putting our next BEAN st in the space beside them. Repeat 4 times until you have all 5 beans.

Then we’ll be crocheting our next HDC section like we did before.

 

HDC in the HDC,

then BPDC onto the post of the next BPDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then BPDC onto the post of the next BPDC,

HDC in the last HDC. Ch 1.

 

 

Which brings you back up to the BFS section. Skip over to the first set of wings and using the wing spaces create your 5 BFS’s on this side.

 

HDC in first HDC,

BPDC on post of next BPDC.

HDC in last 5 HDC’s. Ch 2 and turn.

 

 

 

Row 5

HDC in the first 5 HDC’s.

FPDC on the post of the next FPDC.

HDC in the final HDC.

 

CH 1 and skipping the first big space create your 5 BFS’s as you did before using the wing spaces.

 

Then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC onto the post of the next FPDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC onto the post of the next FPDC,

HDC in the last HDC. Ch 1.

 

Skip the BEAN part of the stitch, we’ll be putting our next BEAN st in the space beside them. Repeat 4 times until you have all 5 beans.

Then we’ll be crocheting our next HDC section like we did before.

 

HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC onto the post of the next FPDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC onto the post of the next FPDC,

HDC in the last HDC. Ch 1.

 

Which brings you back up to the BFS section. Skip over to the first set of wings and using the wing spaces create your 5 BFS’s on this side.

 

HDC in first HDC,

FPDC on post of next FPDC.

HDC in last 5 HDC’s. Ch 2 and turn.

 

 

Repeat Rows 4 and 5

 

After you crochet your scarf \ wrap through a few skeins it will be time to stop and create your pockets.

You really want to do this before you use up all your yarn. So do this a bit in advance if you are short on skeins of your color. Also keep in mind you will need to have enough yarn for the last row of Single crochets.

 

 

 

 

 

How to make the Pocket

 

Row 1

SCFS 21 or ch 22 and ch 1 and turn,

sc in second ch from hook. Sc in 21 sts.

Ch 2 and turn.

 

 

 

Row 2

HDC in all 21 sts. Ch 2 and turn

 

 

 

Row 3

HDC in 1st st. then FPDC on the post of the next HDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC on the post of the next HDC,

HDC in the next 13 sts.

FPDC on the post of the next HDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC on the post of the next HDC.

HDC in last st of row.

 

 

 

Row 4

HDC in 1st st. then BPDC on the post of the next BPDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then BPDC on the post of the next BPDC,

HDC in the next 13 sts.

BPDC on the post of the next BPDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then BPDC on the post of the next BPDC.

HDC in last st of row.

 

Repeat rows 3 and 4 until you have a total of 17 rows.

 

 

 

Row 18

Then you should have the Front Post’s side facing you.

Start the row as normal, HDC in 1st st.

then FPDC on the post of the next FPDC,

then HDC in the HDC,

then FPDC on the post of the next FPDC.

 

But now you’ll want to repeat this pattern.

HDC on next HDC,

then FPDC on the next FPDC.

 

Alternating between those 2 sts. You should end up perfectly aligned to the last 5 sts that you will crochet as normal.

HDC, FPDC, HDC, FPDC then HDC in last st.

Ch 2 and turn.

 

 

 

Row 19

HDC on next HDC,

then BPDC on the next BPDC.

Alternating between those 2 sts for the whole row.

HDC in last st. ch 1 and turn.

 

 

 

Row 20

LOOSELY slip stitch or sl st and ch 1, whichever is easier for you in all the stitches along the top.

 

CH 1 and cut yarn and set aside or continue and attach your pocket. SEE BELOW on Tips for Sewing on your pocket PLUS SEE BELOW for the last row of the SHAWL

 

 

TIPS ON ATTACHING YOUR POCKET

I used markers in all 4 corners of my pocket to hold it in place as I sewed.

 

I counted 13 rows up from the bottom and set the bottom of the pocket to start there, but feel free to put the pocket higher or lower on your shawl. Just where ever it feel comfortable for you. But I do recommend not sewing it so close to the bottom but at least 5 rows or more up from the bottom row.

 

Anyway, once you’ve picked your placement

Align the two bar lines on the pocket with the 2 bar lines on the scarf \ wrap. Using the st on the outside of the FPDC’s to sew on.

 

Go through both sts, one on the pocket and one on the wrap. I used sl st and ch 1 and slowly made my way all the way around the pocket.

 

If you create your other pocket in advance, you can just crochet your Shawl \ Wrap until you have enough yarn for a last row of single crochets and the yarn to sew on the pocket.

 

So by now you should have a two pocket’s made and one sewn on.

You’re running out of yarn and are ready to create your last row of single crochets.

 

 

 

FINISHING your SHAWL

Last ROW of Shawl

SC in the first 7 sts (7), this should bring you up to your first set of wings.

SC in each set of wings, this is a total of 10 sts (17)

then sc into the next 5 sts of the HDC’s\ FPDC section. (22)

SC using both sts of the BS this time, for a total of 10 sts (32)

then sc into the next 5 sts of the HDC’s\ FPDC section. (37)

SC in each set of wings, this is a total of 10 sts (47)

SC in the Last 7 sts (54) ch 1 and cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to be hidden with a tapestry needle.

 

Now use remaining yarn to sew on your last pocket.

 

Hide all your tails using a tapestry needle. ENJOY!
