Version 2.0 was released Sept. 1, 2014. If you downloaded the old version before this date, then replace it with the new version. This version adds revised text and chart, 2 more charts, and instructions for the Eyelet Bands in Body version.

--- See versions and errata below ---

See the our Sept. 1, 2014 CAL in the Crochet Shoulder Wrappers group!

A top-down, centre-out, shallow crescent shawl with a wide lace border. No long starting chain! The wings are long enough to throw over your shoulder and stay put, or fasten behind your back.

Don’t like to count stitches? Want to modify patterns? This one was designed for you. No counting stitches after the first few rows. The lace border was especially designed to fit after a final body row of any number of stitches.

Easy to modify.

  • Regular Size Version
  • Extra Shallow Version - designed to wear cowboy style
  • Eyelet Bands in Body Version included.

Watch for new versions with different borders.

Block it hard for a lacy look, or block it softly for a warmer, stretchier wrap.

The solid body is all single crochet. Single crochet in the front loop yields a thin, drapey but solid fabric.
The eyelet bands in body is bands of extended single crochet mesh in the sc flo body.

The 5” to 8” wide lace border uses simple stitches; chain stitch, single crochet, extended single crochet, half-double crochet, double crochet, and just a couple slip stitches and treble crochets.

Thank you for all the encouragement and support from Crochet Shoulder Wrappers members. Special thanks to Korina, for all her input as well as testing, and tammysmom for testing! ♥

Border Variations
You don’t need to know in advance what size or what edging you want. There have been several alternative edgings.
Old Shale here and here
The Nipigonor Klamath border here

The sideways eyelets version
? Just ch2, sk 2st, sc in the next 6 st. Just stick those rows wherever you want.

And a long eyelets version here.

Our wonderful CSW members have helped me find errata in Version 2.0 of this pattern. Until Version 2.1 is released, here is a list of errata.

P. 2 - For the “Extra Shallow Version” in DOUBLE Row 2, omit the “ch 3” right before “turn”.

P. 3 - The sentence “continue with all PLAIN rows except for INCREASE rows 9, 16, 23,… “ is not part of the “Eyelet Bands in Body Version”. That’s a continuation of the “Extra Shallow Version” on page 2.
The “Eyelet Bands in Body Version” starts after the first two sentences and the line on page 3, not right at the top. The lines separate each version of the pattern.

P. 6 & 7, Chart legends: the “tc” symbol in the legend is missing the second horizontal line. The tc’s in the actual charts are correct.

Errata for the “Nipigon” or Klamath border version
(thanks to KMDCrochet!)

Row 15 refers to working into sc stitches when previous row has esc… assuming this is a typo.
For Row 16 work row 18 instructions, esc worked flo
Row 17 should work into esc stitches, not sc
Row 19 should work into esc stitches, not sc
Row 23 should work in sc stitches, not esc; skip sc stitches, not ch1)
two rows marked Row 24
