Trying out my hand at designing a crochet Asymmetrical shawl. I’ve made several Butterfly Shawls designs and wanted to try something new.

 

I really like the way you can wear these Asymmetrical shawls, it’s reminds me something between a cowl and a regular shawl the way I’ve seen it worn. I found the perfect stitch that looks great from both sides.

 

Me and my husband actually like the way the back of the stitch looks better than the front side of the stitch. Which for us makes this a double sided Asymmetrical shawl! I’ll let you decide. I really hope you enjoy this Asymmetrical shawl as much as I did making it.

Row 1

Ch 7 and DC in the 3rd ch from the hook. This will create your first “Increase area” . (Place Marker Here at end of row)

 

Continue and DC 1 in the next 2 sts. We’ll using the 1st DC of these two DC’s so we’re backing up, YO and grabbing the post of the previous DC and DC on to post of it. This is our first FPDC. This is how you will create them for the rest of the shawl.

 

To End: DC in the last st of the row. Ch 1 and turn

 

Grab you marker and attach it in between the beginning ch 3 and 1st DC of row.

 

 

 

 

 

Row 2

SC using the FLO in the first 3 sts of the row,* skip 1 st and SC in the next st. Now increase by putting 2 sc’s in the last st * repeat for row. CH 3 and turn.

 

It’s always important to count your sts at the end of this row repeat to ensure you have an even number of sts. You should have 6 sts and it will grow by 2 sts every time you complete a row of Single crochets.

 

 

 

Row 3

DC in same st as ch 3. This is your increase again. * Dc in next 2 sts, then YO and DC on the post of the previous DC. * Repeat for row. You should have 2 FPDC cross area’s now. You’ll be adding 1 more to the row with every repeat of this row.

To End: DC in last St. Ch 1 and Turn.

 

 

It’s a repeat of rows 2 and 3 from now on, but I will take you through a few more rows to help you have time to get used to the pattern, (with pictures if you’re using the PDF version) so let’s keep going.

 

 

Row 4

SC using the FLO in the first 3 sts of the row, *skip 1 st and SC in the next 2 sts * repeat for row. SC 2 in last st of row.

8 sts total CH 3 and turn.

 

 

Row 5

DC in 1st st to Increase * DC in next 2 sts, back up and DC onto the post of the previous DC. * repeat for row. DC in the last DC of row. CH 1 and Turn. You should have 3 FPDC Cross over’s this row.

 

 

Row 6

SC using the FLO in the first 3 sts of the row,* skip 1 st and SC in the next 2 sts * repeat for row. SC 2 in last st of row. 10 sts total CH 3 and turn.

 

 

 

Row 7

DC in 1st st to Increase * DC in next 2 sts, back up and DC onto the post of the previous DC. * repeat for row. DC in the last DC of row. CH 1 and Turn. You should have 4 FPDC Cross over’s this row.

 

I hope by now you’ve gotten the pattern down. Be sure to share pictures if you make one of these or message to me to ask if you have any questions. For now keep repeat the two rows until you reach your desired size.

 

I used 3 skeins for the shawl. Use the last skein to create the tassel in advanced before connecting the last skein to the shawl.

 

I finished my shawl after a single crochet row and I had 120 sts.
