Item details

This listing is for the crochet pattern / directions only, not the finished item. You will receive download instructions from etsy after purchase has been made.

I called this shawl “Windowbox Shawl” because when you wear the shawl wrapped around you, the lace makes little curtained windows! I thought windowbox had a nicer ring to it then “curtained windows”, and the name for this shawl was born!

This shawl is a top down shawl that can be worked in any yarn or size hook you like. You can make a small shawlette that you can wrap around you like a scarf, to a full sized keep-you-warm-in-winter shawl.

I used 2 skeins of Knit Picks Gloss DK & a size H hook for the shawl shown in the first photo with my beautiful friend Anika (blocked heavily); I used about 60 grams of Knit Picks Bare in fingering & a G crochet hook for the other photos, blocked lightly. I crochet loosely; most crocheters will need to go up a hook size or two if using similar yarn.

After blocking, shawl measures 50” across by 28” deep. Your finished shawl will vary with yarn used, number of repeats made, & how severe your blocking is.

The Windowbox Shawl is considered an advanced beginner pattern. You can see other photos of this shawl on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/windowbox-shawl.

Pattern includes a hand drawn chart made by pixie56 (ravelry id) for the set up rows of the shawl, with a second chart showing the pattern repeat. The edging (one row) is not charted.

Many thanks to my pattern testers, AussiesPrincess, daughterofartemis, jam52, deadalchemist & CollieGrl64.

And a HUGE thank you to pixie56 not only for testing the shawl, but for drawing out the chart that is included with this pattern! I couldn’t have done it without all of you!
