Whispering Falls - a shawl to crochet

Whispering Falls is a big, slightly asymmetrical shaped shawl that is quick to crochet. Work it in one or more solid colors, a yarn with a long color run, or mini skeins, and finish by working the edging in a contrasting color.

It can easily be made smaller or larger depending on how much yarn you have. It can be made in any weight of yarn by changing the hook size to suit the yarn.

With fingering weight yarn and a size G hook, you’ll need 500 yards for the body and 67 yards for the border to make a blocked shawl that measured 76” neckline x 49.5” last row x 64” lower edge.

The 4 page pattern includes written instructions and crochet charts.

Twirlish scarf to knit

Twirlish is a scarf knit in the round in an easy diagonal lace pattern that begins and ends with a few rounds of ribbing. You can make it as short or long or as narrow or wide as you like with however much yarn you have. I’ll show you how to use up all of your yarn.

The pictured cowl was knit with 98 yards of Aran weight yarn (27” around x 5.5” tall) and the long scarf with 220 yards of yarn (54” around x 9” wide) using a size 9 (5.5 mm) circular knitting needle. It’s easy to adjust this pattern to use whatever weight of yarn you have in your stash by changing the knitting needles to suit the yarn and adjusting the number of stitches you cast on. Pattern price is $3.00. Find the pattern in my Ravelry pattern store.

All proceeds from this pattern will be donated to the Mercy Corp.
