A beautiful triangular Shawl featuring an intricate Tunisian Crochet diamond lace pattern, worked up in 4 colours of Sock Yarn, fading from one to the other.

Delicate lace holes form diamond shapes across the Shawl, which slightly distort the background of the Tunisian Simple Stitch, creating a “river” effect.

This is the perfect Shawl for showing off hand-dyed yarn.

This pattern is part of the Diamond River Collection of Tunisian Crochet patterns, which also feature the Diamond River Beanie and Diamond River Socks

MATERIALS

  • 4.0mm Tunisian Crochet Hook with a long cable (to fit the stitches on the Hook as the Shawl gets bigger)
  • Approximately 380 yards of Sock Yarn for colour A
  • Approximately 410 yards of Sock Yarn for colour B
  • Approximately 370 yards of Sock Yarn for colour C
  • Approximately 245 yards of Sock Yarn for colour D
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Blocking Mats, Blocking Wires and Blocking Pins

YARN
For this Shawl I used Hedgehog Fibres Sock (437 yards/400 meters, 100g, 90% Merino Wool, 10% Nylon). I used the shades Genie (yarn A), Boombox (yarn B), Crybaby (yarn C) and Déjà Vu (yarn D).

You can use any 4 shades of Hedgehog Fibres Sock to make this Shawl, as the colours will blend into each other as the Shawl is worked, although a set of 4 colours that fade into each other would be ideal.

For yarn alternatives, using any variegated Sock Yarn will accentuate the “river” element of the design.
