Elise Shawl

Filed under: Actual Crochet, Ravelry — Linda @ 6:28 am

I know, I know, I’ve been posting more hiking than yarn related projects.  I left the work force a year ago April and I have no idea how I managed to work 8 hours a day and get everything else done AND have time to crochet/knit.  But look at this, actual crochet!  This is the Elise Shawl and it’s available free on Ravelry.


A friend of mine made one of these for me a few years ago and I love it!  And I’ve wanted to make one myself ever since.  I used one skein (420 yards) of Tosh Merino Light from Madelinetosh in Scarlet.  It’s an easy pattern although the wording was a bit confusing to me but the chart was perfectly clear.  Once you reach row four it becomes a two row repeat and very easy.

This triangular shawl pattern is worked from the center out and can be made smaller using less yarn or larger by adding more yardage.



After I got past the first six rows it went really quickly.   I probably could have completed it on one day.

If I weren’t so easily distracted :)


I just love how this blocked out.

CompleteI might just have to make another one :D


  1. I like it! Very nice!!

  2. It’s patterns like this that inspire me to learn to crochet. One day…

  3. Pretty, nice job. Your description and the pattern are foreign to me, and I think I will keep it that way for now….
