Item details


I have long wanted to design a crochet shawl that celebrates the fade, you know the sort; blending one shade into another and into another, creating a beautiful cascade of colour. I imagined lacy sections combined with gorgeous textures and have tinkered and played to come up with a combination that might make one exclaim “Holey Smokes!” (of course, I added the “e” because of the holes that appear in the fancy stitch work).

The pattern includes the written instructions, a chart diagram, stitch counts and step-by-step photographs of the main stitch used.

There is now a tutorial for the Crossed Treble stitch which can be found on my YouTube channel.

4 x colours 4ply fingering. 40g Yarn A (Pink Swirl) , 80g Yarn B (Rave), 75g Yarn C (Poison Ivy), 30g Yarn D (Midnight Rave). I used 100% BFL indie dyed yarn (425m per 100g) from Somerset Yarns via Etsy.
4mm hook

Tension: Whilst tension isn’t critical for this project, it may affect the amount of yarn used. A blocked triangle of the first 10 rows measures approximately across top: 8 inches/20cm. Corner to point: 6 inches/15.5cm. From top to point: 4.5 inches/11.5cm
