Balancing Act Shawl to crochet




Balancing Act is a crocheted shawl with a unique sail shape. Increases, decreases and the use of different height stitches create this shape. The shawl has a simple two row repeat that can be worked until you run out of yarn.

This is a one skein wonder project that can be made with a 400 yard skein of sock yarn and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook. It’s easy to make larger if you have more yarn or substitute a different weight of yarn with a hook size that works with that yarn.

Blocked size of blue shawl is 54” neckline x 47” last row x 66” lower edge. It looks great in a solid color, a tone-on-tone yarn, or a yarn with a long color run. 

The three page pattern has written instructions and a crochet chart for $5.00. Buy it through my Ravelry pattern store.

Rocking the Curve Shawlette to crochet



Rocking the Curve is an easy to crochet shawlette shaped with increases, decreases, and different height stitches. The simple two row repeat can be worked until you run out of yarn. Though the pattern is written for sport weight yarn with a size G crochet hook, it can be made with any weight of yarn by changing the hook size to suit the yarn. Blocked size with 328 yards of sport weight yarn was 51” down the center x 28” along the last row worked.


The more yarn you have, the larger your shawl will be. The three page pattern includes written instructions and a crochet chart. Price after the sale will be $4.00. Find it in my Ravelry pattern store.

Skyrocket Scarf -- a crochet pattern




Blast off with Skyrocket, a rocket shaped scarf that is quick-to-hook using fingering/sock weight yarn and a size G crochet hook. A simple two row repeat with increases and decreases form the shape of the scarf. I used one skein of Lang Yarns Mille Colori Baby (208 yards) to make the pictured scarf.

 The scarf washed and laid flat to dry measured 33” down the center x 16” along the last row. You can add a tassel to the starting tip or a pretty button near any point and button through the stitches.

This versatile pattern can be made any size, with any weight of yarn by choosing a hook size to suit the yarn you choose. The three page pattern includes written instructions and a crochet chart sells for $4.00 in my Ravelry pattern store.
