Finally number 3 added - The Simple Ripple Wingspan (3rd picture)


New write up with additional pattern plus another on its way

The Original Crochet Wingspan has now been developed into 2 versions, a 3rd is on its way.
Maylin Tri’Coterie Designs first developed the knitted wingspan many moons ago now and has developed it into an e-book, you can find its history here »>
And so it was about time the crochet version moved with the times too.
The Stripy version was the original and the easiest to make.
The 2nd version – New Angle - is made up in a totally different way and holds many possibilities.
The third again will be made in another way, giving you many ways of producing the same shawl.
Each one has been produced using a 4ply/sock yarn and 3.5mm hook, and depending on the size you wish to make depends on the amount of yarn you will use.
You will need to be able to do the following stitches (USA):
Stripy - Chain, slip stitch, single crochet
New Angle – Chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, Dcx2 – (dc twice in same stitch), CL3 - (dcx3 in same stitch)

There has been some folks reporting that the pdf hasn’t been showing the pattern very well. The way to fix this is to update Adobe flash player :)

This is the crochet version of the original Wingspan Shawl designed by Maylin.
Wingspan Knitted Shawl

The instructions are written and there are colour photo’s also if you need the extra help. Large and small version showing on the pattern.

You need to know how to chain, single crochet and slip stitch (USA terms used)

I am not the world’s best photographer and yep the dates are showing wrong on the photos. PM me if you need any advice

Query about the ‘steps’ when finishing - instead of adding the extra chain to start the new wing INSTEAD slip stitch along the LONG edge, AND over the unworked steps. This should hopefully pull in the neckline to make it more curvy.
I only tested it on a small sample.
