I have always loved the look of Stephen West’s knitting designs. I wanted to take his ideas and translate them into crochet. I contacted him and asked if it would be okay to try and he gave me his blessing to do so. This is my interpretation of his famous Clockwork shawl. I tried to keep it as close as possible to the original knit version, but as we all know, crochet is different than knitting. Instead of using slip stitches, I chose to create the lines dividing the sections with front post double crochets. The striping is achieved with single crochet alternating every other row so there wouldn’t be a bunch of ends to weave in when through. I hope you enjoy this translation!
