SpiffyNifty Cabled Shawl

This shawl was made out of need for a pattern that was simple but interesting enough to want to keep working on it.  I also wanted a more of a masculine look to it so it can be used for a man or a woman.  I feel it fits the needs of what I wanted and I hope you find it pleasing as well.  Basic crochet skills are needed as well as a good understanding of cabling stitches.

Materials:

Red Heart With Love Yarn in the color Pewter

I or 5.5mm crochet hook

Scissors

Large eye needle to sew in ends

Stitches Used/Key:

Back Post Double Crochet = Bpdc

Chain = Ch

Double Crochet = DC

Front Post Double Crochet = Fpdc

Front Post Treble (Triple) Crochet – Fptc

Reverse Single Crochet = Rsc

Pattern:

Chain 244 for a shawl with the length of approximately 76 inches.  (I thought this would be a good size for a gentleman.)  If you want a shawl that is not so long just make sure you chain in multiples of 14+6 for you desired length.  Just know that you will need 14 stitches for each cabled side of your shawl.  That means whatever number of stitches you put in between the 14 on each end doesn’t really matter as long as you have 14 stitches for each end of your shawl to do the cable pattern.

R1:  Dc in 4th chain from hook and in each chain stitch across.  Ch 3, turn.

R2:  Dc in next stitch, Fpdc in the next two stitches.  Dc in next two stitches.  Skip next two stitches, Fptc around next two stitches.  Fptc around first skipped stitch, fptc around next skipped stitch.  Dc in next two stitches.  Fpdc in next two stitches.  Dc in next 216 stitches.  Fpdc around next two stitches.  Dc in next two stitches.  Skip next 2 stitches.  Fptc around next stitch after the 2 skipped stitches.  Fptc around next stitch. Fptc around first skipped stitch.  Fptc around next skipped stitch.  Dc in next two stitches.  Fpdc around next two stitches.  Dc in last two stitches.  Chain 3, turn.

R3:  Dc in first stitch.  Bpdc around next two stitches.  Dc in next two stitches.  Bpdc around next 4 stitches.  Dc in next two stitches.  Bpdc in next two stitches.  Dc in next 216 stitches.  Bpdc around next two stitches.  Dc in next two stitches.  Bpdc around next 4 stitches.  Dc in next 2 stitches.  Bpdc in next two stitches. Dc in last two stitches.  Chain 3, turn.

You will repeat row 2 and 3 until you reach the height of the shawl that you want.  For my shawl I did 38 rows and that gave it a height of approximately 19 1/2 inches.  You will want to end on a row that is the cable side of your shawl.  The edging is a Rsc stitch in each space around the entire shawl and two Rsc in the corner stitches.  This stitches gives your shawl and very finished look and it goes nicely with the cabling in the project.

Thank you and enjoy!
