Helen Shawl

By: Miroslava Mihalkova from Exquisite Crochet UK
Updated September 20, 2020
Helen Shawl
Helen Shawl

"The Helen Shawl is a great accessory for transitioning weather, light enough to throw on during autumn /spring mornings for that extra layer to keep the cold away. The shawl is made in Tunisian crochet with four different stitch patterns and various techniques, including the very popular Honeycomb stitch and two types of lace. This project is engaging and step up for any beginner that wants to move beyond Tunisian simple stitch worked in regular shapes. The yarn for this project is a fantastic blend of cotton and acrylic available in multitude of colours that results on fantastic stitch definition."

NotesThis shawl is crocheted with RS facing throughout. Increases are made in the first stitch on every row by working Tunisian simple stitch in the first vertical bar (which is normally missed).

Take care not to miss the first stitch after the increase stitch, as this tends to hide under the increase stitch.
