10.08.2011: Row 3 of set-up should start with: ”ch 1, sc into first 3 sts,”
Just like its knitted predecessor, Critron is worked from the inside and out. This pattern includes row-by-row instructions for two sizes of the shawl but is easily made bigger.
The pattern also includes suggestions on on how to use the pattern as a basis for a customized semi-circular shawl using other patterns than ruffles.
The shawl has instructions for two sizes - the yarn requirements are given for laceweight:
5 sections: 600/650 yards / 550/600 meters
6 sections: 1000/1100 yards / 900/1000meters
(Remember to account for extra yardage if you’re working with a looser gauge and/or want to work it bigger.)
5 sections: 16 1/2” x 35” / 42 x 90 cm
6 sections: 20 1/2” x 42” / 52 x 107 cm
The gauge is 21 sc/25 rows = 4x4”/10x10 cm - again worked in laceweight (My samples was worked with hook sized F (3.75 mm) and G (4.00 mm).
If you’re working with other weights so this gauge doesn’t apply to you, the most important thing to check is that your stitches are slightly wider than tall; meaning that if you have your 4x4” square, you should have more rows (height wise) than stithes (width wise).
The ratio should be approximately 1 (= number of stitches in your square) : 1,1-1,2 (= number of rows in your square).
Very easy - suitable for the patient beginner.
The entire shawl is worked in single crochet - be aware that finishing time will be longer than most crochet projects.
