Walk With Me Shawl

Walk With Me Shawl is a crescent shaped Tunisian crochet shawl with a beautiful basketweave stitch pattern. It is constructed top down and uses approximately 250 g of fingering weight yarn that is light enough for spring and summer but still gives a bit of warmth. This allows it to be a great layering option for chillier evenings and long walks outside.

Stitch guide

Tunisian crochet stitches are worked in 2 steps; forward and return pass from right to left (from the perspective of right-handed crocheters), with the number of sts (lps) increasing on the hook during the forward pass and decreasing during the return pass.

Return pass is worked in the same way for all stitches (rows of sts) used in this project as follows: 1 ch, *yrh, draw through 2 lps on hook, rep from * until 1 lp on hook.

Edge stitches:

Right edge stitch- This is the first lp on hook and counts as first st unless otherwise stated.

Left edge stitch- This st is referred to in the pattern as the End Stitch (ES) and is crocheted as follows: Rotate the end of the fabric towards yourself, insert the hook under both bars (left and right) of the last st, yrh and pul.

  • First row of Tunisian crochet: Insert the hook in the back bump of second ch from hook, yrh and pul across.
  • Tunisian purl stitch: Bring yarn to the front on the work and hook, insert the hook from right to left under the front vertical bar of the next st, yrh and pul.
  • Tunisian knit stitch: Insert the hook from front to back between the front and back vertical bar, yrh and pul.

Increase under front horizontal bar: Insert the hook from front to back under front horizontal bar, yrh and pul (1 st increased).

 Increase under back vertical bar: Insert the hook from right to left under back vertical bar, yrh and pul (1 st increased).

Tunisian knit stitch bind-off: Tks in next st, pull through lp on hook (1 lp rem on hook).

Tunisian purl stitch bind-off: Tps in next st, pull through lp on hook (1 lp rem on hook).

Notes

The Shawl is worked flat, RS facing from right to left. The shawl is worked from top down with 2 increases on each side every row and 2 increases around centre 5 sts every 4 rows.

The stitch count refers to the number of lps on hook on FP.

Bind off row should be worked loosely to allow for the extra stretching during blocking.

Move st markers around centre 5 sts up every few rows to ensure the correct position of the 2 inner increase sts.

The full instructions for this pattern can be purchased from my LoveCrafts or Ravelry shops.
